Our Verdict

SoftGist Rating


We liked FakeYou’s approach towards being a community-driven platform that hosts various pre-defined AI voices inspired by video game characters, YouTubers, and famous personalities. Its robust TTS and Voice-to-Voice tools allow users to create audio content using AI and Deepfake technology. Users can use the platform’s tools for free with specific voice or video creation limits.

However, we’ve encountered an issue with the Video Lip Sync (Wav2Lip) feature since it didn’t work as expected, a significant letdown for most users. Also, FakeYou isn’t ideal for content creators since it only grants users a limited usage license—they can only use the content made on the platform for personal and non-commercial purposes, except for exclusive AI voices on its Elite plan. Unlike other AI-powered TTS tools, it doesn’t have voice customization options and only has limited language support.

Pros & Cons of FakeYou


User-friendly interface

FakeYou has an easy-to-use interface on all its tools, enabling non-techy users to create Deepfake content.

Freemium version available

Users can access Text-to-Speech, Voice-to-Voice, and Video Lip Sync features on their site for free on specific limits.

Over 3,000 AI voices on the Text-to-Speech feature

Users can utilize up to 3,000 user-generated AI voices on its TTS tool, primarily including Deepfake models inspired by movie and anime characters, known personalities, etc.

Has Voice-to-Voice and Video Lip Sync (Wav2Lip) capabilities

FakeYou has a voice cloning tool (Voice-to-Voice), enabling them to clone their voice to one of their AI voices. They can also create Deepfake video content by uploading their custom audio file (Video Lip Sync).


Lacks AI Voice customization options

Unlike other AI-powered TTS platforms, users cannot customize the voice’s speed, pitch, or mood while using it for text-to-speech tasks.

Nonfunctional video lip sync feature

In our experience, the Video Lip Sync feature was essentially nonfunctional and didn’t create the Deepfake video content using our uploaded audio.

Only exclusive AI voices on Elite Plan are for commercial use

Users must subscribe to the platform’s Elite plan to access exclusive AI voices that can be utilized for creating voice content commercially.

What Sets FakeYou Apart

Unlike other AI-powered TTS tools like Speechify, Murf AI, and Listnr, FakeYou has various user-generated AI voices inspired by celebrities, famous movie personalities, and more for deepfake content. It’s easy to use and utilizes Wav2Lip technology to bring a unique experience for users when making video content. Users can also contribute to FakeYou’s community by uploading their custom AI voice, video snippet, and voice-to-voice model.

Key Features

As an AI-driven text-to-speech and video lip-syncing platform, FakeYou has the following core features:


One of FakeYou’s main features is its Text-to-Speech tool. It lets users create audio content by inputting their desired text. Using user-generated AI voices, they can create content inspired by celebrities, movie and anime characters, YouTubers, and much more.

The tool shows a star rating for each AI voice (community-generated feedback). For instance, we’ll let Pikachu say what Pokemon is according to Wikipedia:

FakeYou's text-to-speech tool project creation page

After a few seconds, it generated a 10-second audio of Pikachu saying our input script. As the rating suggests, the AI audio sounded satisfactory and artificial for the most part.

The Text-to-Speech feature is an excellent tool for users who want to experiment with different voices and scripts since the tool allows unlimited audio generations with a 12-second limit. However, some AI voices may sound robotic and artificial; the waiting time for each audio generation can also be longer depending on the site’s number of users.

Video Lip Sync

Another key feature of FakeYou is Video Lip Sync. It’s based on an open-source project called Wav2Lip, a deep learning-based technology for lip-syncing videos to a target speech. The tool contains various user-generated video snippets from famous movie scenes, newscasts, and still images inspired by famous personalities and meme characters. Users can send their feedback using the comment section at the bottom of the page.

In this example, we’ll insert a recording file in a newscasting scene of Anderson Cooper (famous CNN reporter):

Unfortunately, after minutes of waiting, the tool didn’t upload the audio and integrate it into the video clip. We experienced similar results on other featured video clips on the Video Lip Sync tool.

While the Video Lip Sync feature is one of the main features that makes the platform unique—it wasn’t working, and the tool didn’t meet our expectations.


FakeYou offers three main pricing plans, each with an increasing number of features and access to future feature updates:

FakeYou's pricing plan


The Plus plan is ideal for users who want more extensive video and audio limits and starts at $7 monthly. It offers unlimited generations of up to 30 seconds of audio on its Text-to-Speech tool, up to 4 minutes of audio on Voice-to-Voice, and up to 1 minute of video using Wav2Lip.


The Pro plan is suited for independent content creators and Deepfake hobbyists and costs $15 monthly. It offers everything from the Plus plan, including faster processing times, 5 minutes of audio on Voice-to-Voice, and 2 minutes of video on Wav2Lip. Users can upload their private models for the platform’s different features.


The Elite plan is for commercially driven content creators and voice actors and starts at $25 per month. It offers everything from the Pro plan, including the fastest processing priority, unlimited audio generation on Voice-to-Voice, and access to the platform’s exclusive commercial AI voices. Users can also share their uploaded private models to FakeYou’s Discord community.

Final Thoughts on FakeYou

FakeYou offers three main AI-driven features (Text-to-Speech, Voice-to-Voice, and Video Lip Sync) for content creation. It has an easy-to-use interface that allows users to use the platform’s main features on its free version. However, we’ve encountered significant software issues, especially the Video Lip Sync feature.

We gave it a 3.9 out of 5 rating mainly due to its nonfunctional Video Lip Sync tool and mediocre quality on most user-generated AI voices. However, we found its TTS feature to be an efficient and fun tool for generating content inspired by famous movie characters, celebrities, and more.

Overall, we still recommend FakeYou for users who want to create Deepfake-based content for personal use and experiment with various user-generated AI voices as a hobby.

Got Questions?

Can you use FakeYou for free?

Yes. Users can use FakeYou’s main features (Text-to-Speech, Voice-to-Voice, and Video Lip Sync) for free. However, they are limited to user limits set by the platform. Users must subscribe to one of FakeYou’s pricing plans to have more extensive video and audio creation limits.

Is FakeYou safe?

Yes. The platform follows secure security protocols, processing data over an encrypted connection. However, it’s generally recommended that users avoid inputting their personal information and other confidential data on the platform’s tools for security purposes. Users must also use the platform’s features responsibly, especially its Video to Lip Sync tool.

Can FakeYou generate voices in multiple Languages?

Yes. Premium users can use FakeYou’s Text-to-Speech feature to generate audio content in over 20 languages, like Dutch, English, German, Chinese, and more. However, most of the tool’s user-generated AI voices are restricted to English, so users must find a voice that supports different languages.

What are the best alternatives to FakeYou?

Some of the best alternatives to FakeYou include Speechify, Murf AI, Listnr, and ElevenLabs. Most tools have advanced voice customization features (e.g., adjusting the pitch and speed of the AI voice) and have AI voices in multiple languages. ElevenLabs also has a Voice Library feature, which contains various user-generated AI voices that have higher quality than FakeYou’s AI voice library.

Can FakeYou be used commercially?

No. Based on FakeYou’s Terms of Use, users will be granted a limited usage license, allowing only personal and non-commercial use of all made content using their site’s tools. However, paid users on the Elite plan will have access to limited AI voices that they can use commercially.
