I am creating an app, and i want to use the phones built-in facial recognition to authenticate a users response (yes/no) . Is it possible to use the existing one? I have searched for ages, and found nothing except for IOS. Will i need to build my own facial recognition system within the app?

This is my first app, so apologies if its a silly question.

Do android phones have face recognition? There are libraries you can use probably.

A quick search for "android facial recognition" finds https://stackoverflow.com/questions/6825778/face-recognition-api and https://github.com/Lauszus/FaceRecognitionApp. They're probably fine to use in an app (like you said you want to); using them to unlock a device would be much harder, as the code would need to be installed as a trust agent on the device.
 
I wish to win the lottery. I wish for a lovely piece of pie. And I wish for a tiny ad:
