Want Microsoft to guess your age by simply analyzing a picture of you? Alright, maybe you don’t, but for shits and giggles, let’s see what the big fuss is about.

At the Microsoft BUILD developer conference today, the company gave us a look at, a really cool platform that estimates your age based on a picture.

It’s really simple to use too. Just head over to and upload your picture by clicking on the “Use your own photo” button at the bottom of the page. From there, the tool will work its magic by analyzing your photo. Then it spits out what it thinks is your age. Keyword: “thinks”

If you’re at work and feel like wasting a few minutes, then try it out for yourself. Let us know in the comments if it guessed your age right or wrong.
