Since its creation in 1995, emoji have gained major popularity. Memojis take it a step further, using technology that combines facial recognition, augmented reality, and AI to create personalized animated emojis: Memojis. We'll show you how to take your messages to the next level.
What Is a Memoji
Memojis are emojis created from a user's face, or that of another person. It was invented by Apple and planned for Messages on iOS 12. Now it is also possible to add them to WhatsApp messages, and more:
How To Create a Memoji
First ensure you have an iPhone compatible with iOS 13. To create animated memojis
, you must have an iPhone X or later, or a third-generation iPad Pro.
If you have any of these devices, simply open the Messages
application and start a new message. Then press the animoji
icon (monkey-faced button) and slide your finger to the right. Among the options that appear, choose New Memoji
. You can then customize your memoji (skin tone, eyes, hairstyle, etc). Once finished, press OK
and your memoji will appear in WhatsApp Emojis.
Memojis on Android Devices
In general, with some exceptions, Android users cannot create memojis. The exceptions are on Xiaomi, Samsung and Huawei
devices. These brands have the Mi Mojis, AR Emoji, and Qmojis applications respectively, which allow users to create memojis.
If you don't have one of those phones, there are other ways to get memojis
. For example, one option is to ask a friend who has an iPhone to help you create your own memo with your device and send it to you on WhatsApp (although not animated, it's something). Another possibility is to use an app to create memojis (not animated). In general, you will have to allow these applications to access your keyboard and messages.
