Hi! Time to remember ICQ Messenger :)

MacOS users are now able to try out the newest face-tracking technology in the latest version of ICQ, which includes interactive masks for video calls. This new-and-improved version also features a search option in message history and allows users to create and administrate Livechats.

ICQ offers a variety of 2D and 3D masks, including cute kitties and pandas, creepy aliens and clowns, classic beards and glasses, funny leprechauns and anonymous, and many others. Masks can be put on right in the middle of a video call. The system identifies the face via special points and tracks head movements and facial expressions in real-time.

ICQ also features improved search engine enabling users to look for specific words in all chats or in just a single dialogue.

macOS users can now do more than just communicate in live chats: they can create and administrate them.

The masks in ICQ are powered by the cutting-edge LUNA facial recognition system developed by VisionLabs, a Russian company and world leader in computer vision.

The new version of ICQ is already available in the App Store and at
