Macworld which iPhone have Animoji & Memoji

The iPhone X was the first Apple smartphone to feature Animoji and Memoji. These fun, animated characters are available as an iMessage app and allow you to send expressive messages using your voice and facial expressions. Animoji are based on the animated emoji that were introduced in iOS 10.3. They use the TrueDepth camera on the iPhone X to track your face and mimic your expressions. Memoji are a step up from Animoji, as they allow you to create a custom, 3D-animated emoji that looks just like you (or anyone else you want).

Both Animoji and Memoji can be used in the Messages app on your iPhone, as well as in FaceTime and third-party apps like Snapchat. Here’s everything you need to know about using Animoji and Memoji on your iPhone.

How to use Animoji and Memoji

To use Animoji or Memoji, you need an iPhone that supports Face ID (iPhone X or later). Open the Messages app, then start a new conversation or tap on an existing one.

  • Tap on the App Store icon next to the text field, then tap on the Animoji icon (it looks like a monkey). This will open the Animoji app.
  • If you want to use Memoji, tap on the Memoji button at the bottom of the screen. If you’ve already created a Memoji, it will appear here. Otherwise, tap on the + icon to create a new one.
  • To use an Animoji or Memoji, simply tap on it and then record your message. You can also tap on the red Record button to record a longer message (up to 30 seconds).
  • When you’re done recording, tap on the Stop button. You can then preview your message and send it as usual.
  • If you want to use Animoji or Memoji in a FaceTime call, open the FaceTime app and start a new call. Tap on the Effects button (it looks like a star), then select Animoji or Memoji.
  • You can also use Animoji and Memoji in third-party apps like Snapchat. To do this, open the app and look for an option to use your camera. Tap on the Effects button (it may be located in a different place), then select Animoji or Memoji.

Not all apps support Animoji and Memoji, but more and more are adding support all the time.
