On the features front, Apple iPhone X offers many firsts. The smartphone is the first to come with an OLED display, FaceID, wireless charging. Along with all this, iPhone X also offers an interesting and much-talked-about Animojis. These animated ‘animal cartoons’ are been touted as one of the big features of iPhone X. Here’s all you need to know about Apple Animojis:
What is an Animoji?
The company explains Animoji as an animated real-time message which uses user’s voice and reflects his/her facial expressions.
How many Animojis are there?
For the time being, Apple has incorporated 12 Animojis which include poop, panda, pig, robot, and others. The number is sure to become bigger in the months to come.
iPhone X’s TrueDepth camera brings Animojis to life. The camera captures and analyses over 50 different facial muscle movements, then animates those expressions in a dozen different Animojis.
Users just need to follow some simple steps to create their own Animoji. These include: open the Message app and start typing a message. Then they need to tap on the button placed next to the camera button and select the Animoji character they want to use. After this, one needs to select the Animoji that they want to share and look straight into their iPhone X and place the face inside the frame. Once done, the user just needs to start recording. Users are allowed only to record a message for up to 10 seconds. Once the process is complete, they can just click on the arrow button and send the Animoji.
You don’t need iPhone X to receive an Animoji
You need Apple iPhone X to send Animojis. But users don’t necessarily need one to receive them. Animojis can be sent to / or received from any Apple iOS or Mac user. This means they can be received by most Apple device users.
