Animoji Yourself with the iPhone X

Among all the emoji apps coming out these days, the latest Apple update on the iPhone X has to be the best one yet! With “Animoji” you can now send animated and talking emojis to your friends on iMessage. What’s especially cool about these emojis is that they’re animated emojis of yourself! Your facial expressions are transferred into a character of your choice.

Animoji is fairly simple to use – you open the iMessage app and then click on the animoji app icon. (If it’s not there, you can download it for free from the app store.) Once you open the app, all you have to do is record yourself. It’s more fun when you’re being silly or sarcastic, so do things like stick out your tongue, blink repeatedly several times, or raise your eyebrows as high as possible. When you’re done recording, you can either send your animoji by text, or you can change the character into something else you’re pleased with.

Unfortunately, this feature is only available to iPhone X owners, but hopefully other apps will offer something similar for other versions of iPhone.
