11 Best Apps That Bring Photos To Life And Make Them Talk

If you use any social media, you must’ve come across the vid of animated pics that are talking (it’s kind of a thing right now). That’s why we are here to tell you how it’s done!

There are plenty of apps that brings photos to life and make them talk, and they are way easier to house than you might think.

These apps let you effortlessly animate still photos, and add voiceovers to them. Some of these apps come with pre-recorded voice lines, others let you record ones, but all of them give you pretty realistic results—as if the photos are really alive!

We’ve gathered together the 11 best apps to make photos talk. Take a look!



Let’s start with an app that will bring your photos to life.

It’s a face animator that runs on AI tech and lets you easily live up your photos in the most realistic way. The scheme of action is quite simple—first, you need to choose a pic from the gallery and add it to the app. Herewith, it can be any photo at all—even a pic of some celeb or your mate.

Then, you’ll need to record a vid of yourself, and the app will put all your facial expressions on the image(that’s how it will come alive). It needs to be said, the Ai works pretty well, o the outcome vids won’t look cringy at all. Once it’s done, the next step will be to give your pic a voice.

The app covers a wide range of music tracks you can pick from. The person in the pic will open his mouth along with the song like a singer. In case you’re not into that, you can just say smth while recording a vid, and your character will repeat after you. The app doesn’t affect the quality of the PC, and you can share the result in a few taps.

Here’s another AI-powered app that lets you enliven our photos and make them sing.

The concept of this app is a cute standard for the genre—it uses AI to animate your selfies. That’s right, the app only works for selfies, and the pics where your face is fully visible and close to the cam. In case a pic is taken in a dark area, the app may have trouble recognizing the face, and you’ll need to do it manually (which is not that big of a deal, really).

Once it’s done, you’ll need to pick a song from the app’s collection and let it do the magic. The music base is not that impressive now—it only covers 90 hits, but it will expand in the nearest future. There are also some meme-worthy sounds that let you come up with hilarious vids. As you can see, the mechanics are simple, and you can get a fun vid in a couple of seconds.

Unfortunately, there’s no chance to add custom sounds and make photos talk some random word, so keep that in mind. However, the app works well, and the vids don’t look odd after adding racks. The app will save the vids with a label that can only be removed after being a pro sub pack.

It’s a simple and fun app that will make your pics talk.

Apart from the previous one, this app does let you record custom audios to add to your pics, which is great. It also runs on AI that recognizes the face on a pic and animates it to match the audio. Herewith, you need to make sure the face is not too far from the camera, and it’s not too dark to see it.

It needs to be said, the app also lets you manually mark the face on the pic, so feel free to add voiceovers to random objects if needed. The mechanics are simple—select a pic, record a message, and let the app do the rest. In case you don’t have any ideas for audio, the app has a collection of premade sounds you can use. The collection includes some voice lines and just some funny sounds.

Besides, there are loads of extra voice effects like echo, helium, and all that. Then, you may take it even further by adding facial expressions (even the crazy ones). Plus, the app covers a wide range of stickers and filters to decorate your vids. Once you’re done, you can share the result in a couple of taps.

As always, the app runs on AI techs that detect your face on the pic and animate it along with the words. Herewith, apart from some other apps, this one not only marks the lips and eyes—it marks all the facial expression points.

To be more precise, the app will animate your lips, eyes, eyebrows, cheeks, nose, and even makes your head shake. Thus, when your pic will start to speak, it will look natural (as far as possible). As for the voiceovers, you may rather record an audio straight away, upload one from your device, or type the words for the app to read.

Additionally, you may mark the facial expressions sports by yourself, so it’s not necessary to only stick to selfies. You may add voice to the pics of animals, toys, or whatever else your heart desires. The app is free, but it saves the vid with a watermark that you can delete with a one-time payment.

This app is some kind of magic box for making fun of stuff with your face (or someone else’s). First of all, there’s an animation tool that lets you make get still photos to moving. The app runs on smart algorithms that detect gesture sports and animate them—these are usually mouth and eye moves.

Beyond that, you can go further and make your animated pic talk. The app has a base of pre-recorded phrases and sounds for you to try. In case these are not enough for you—feel free to record your own voice without any effort. The face on the pic will repeat any words, and you can add extra sound FX as well.

And lastly, there’s an app that lets you create animated clips out of still images.

The mechanics of this app is pretty simple—you need to choose any photo with a face on it. In case you don’t wanna use your own—the app has some pre-installed pics of celebs that you can train on. You can also add pics of dolls, drawings, or whatever else with the detectable face on it.

Once the image is picked, the app will catch the face on it, and you can move to the next step. You’ll need to add any vids or record your own. The main goal here is for the vid to contain a face with facial expressions that will be used for image animation.

Herewith, it doesn’t matter if you’ll be saying something or singing in the vid—the result will be equally great. The app doesn’t take down the quality of the photo, and the result won’t look cringy or strange. However, the app adds watermarks to all the vids and the only way to get rid of them is to pay for a sub pack.
