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.

    Animoji definitely looks like a cool feature, though I wonder whether the iPhone X has the processing power required to make it usable without too much lag. Sometimes phones and operating systems debut shiny new features that don’t work very well until there have been a few rounds of bug fixes and patches.

    I thought it was available to any iPhone. I remember I wanted to buy the iPhone because of this app. Nowadays, some people are using this app to release their songs etc.

    This is very cool but but makes me a little bit uneasy. I believe that most things begin with good intensions. I say it is only a matter of time before people start using this technology maliciously.

    I think this concept is interesting, because it is interactive. And I can see how some people find it entertaining, but I personally never find myself using the app
