3 Animoji & Memoji
Similar to the popular Snap-owned Bitmoji app, Apple introduced Animoji with the iPhone X model. As an expansion of this, Apple debuted Memoji earlier this year during the iOS 12 reveal at WWDC. Memoji allows the user to create their own custom avatar and personalize it with glasses, hats, hairstyles, and more. Both FaceTime and the Camera app will support Memoji.
Apple’s Animoji feature (currently on the iPhone X only) allows the user to choose, animate, and record (for up to 10 seconds) an avatar, complete with sound. Character choices include a monkey, robot, poop emoji, and more.
For now, Android users will have to settle for Bitmoji or Samsung’s AR Emoji until a similar feature arrives on all Android devices.
Note: Animoji is available on the iPhone X model only. Memoji is set to debut with iOS 12 in the Fall, and will also only be available on only iPhone X models.
