Wombo AI app review
You might or might not be familiar with the concept that this app is based on: deepfakes. Deepfakes have been known as technology that involves tech-savvy talents to create.

With the tagline of ‘make your selfies sing’, this simple app feels so fun to make and send hilarious and weird memes.

For examples, there are Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’, Haddaway’s ‘What is Love’, O-zone’s ‘Numa Numa’, and Ricks Astley’s ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’. There is also a PRO or premium plan, where the users can access even more content. This premium plan is rated at $4.49/month or $29.99/year. One of the biggest concerns regarding deepfakes, however, is users’ data privacy.
