Recognize face and capture it automatically in canvas power apps

Hello Everyone,

If i navigate to the screen, Need to recognize face and capture face automatically(Should also tell if face is far from the webcam, If it is near to the webcam only it should capture the face). Can anyone guide me how this can be achieved?

According to me, we can achieve this with AI builder, But i don't know the approach. Thank you.

Unfortunatelly, AI Builder can't recognize faces yet.

You have to get an Azure license to use face recognition API and create a connection from the Power Platform.

Will you please share the referenced articles that matches my requirement. 

Send me other than Microsoft docs, because i have gone through it already.

Many thanks in advance.

You can try this one

But there are many similar articles available on Google.

I hope this addresses your requirements.

Do we have any option that camera(media) should automatically takes the picture when we enter into the particular screen?


You can set StreamRate=100 and OnStream=ClearCollect(Photos, Camera1.Stream)

Then retrieve the picture with First(Photos).Url


Yes, it is taking picture automatically. Once the picture is taken, camera should not be ready state to take the picture again, it should end it with only one picture.
