Just in time for New Year's photos, Microsoft has launched a free selfie app designed to improve users' appearances.
Similar to the "beauty" option on Xiaomi smartphones, Microsoft Selfie is a new app that automatically perfects lighting and smooths any facial imperfections without distorting the image.
Factors such as age, gender and skin tone are all taken into account. Users can choose how strongly they want to 'improve' the image by using an on-screen slider.
The Microsoft Selfie app is available now on iTunes.
