Unlocking your iPhone isn’t the only function of the True Depth camera found on the iPhone X (and newer devices). In 2017, Apple announced animated emoji, or Animoji, would launch alongside iOS 11. This technology used the camera to bring some familiar emoji to life with expressions and movements.
Now as a part of the iOS 12 update, Memoji takes this to a whole new level by allowing you to create your own animated emoji. Not only is it a chance to create a cartoony likeness of yourself, but you can bring it to life just like regular animoji.

These devices must have iOS 12 installed. Users who don’t have an iPhone with a True Depth camera can still view your Memoji, just like Animoji in iOS 11. And even though the animated messages are part of iMessage, even “green bubble friends” with Android devices can receive your recordings as a video.
Memoji - Place - Animoji - Messages - IMessage
You create Memoji in the same place you can record Animoji messages: via the iMessage apps menu. Open up the Messages app, then tap the Apps icon next to the text box. Scroll through the list of icons that shows up till you find Animoji (it looks like a monkey, of course).
To add a new Memoji, you’ll want to tap the Plus button. If it’s your first time doing...
