One of the sweetest parts of everyone\u2019s childhood involved sitting on the floor, in front of the TV, watching cartoons. While we were filled with joy about our favorite characters, a part of us would also wonder what it would be like if we turned into cartoons. Now, thanks to technology and the emergence of the Memoji and Animojis, we don\u2019t have to wonder anymore.\r\n\r\n \r\nWhat is an Animoji?\r\nBefore we delve into a discussion about the Memoji, we first need to understand what an Animoji is. Animojis, as the name suggests, are custom, animated versions of popular emoji characters. Imagine turning into a unicorn, or monkey emoji that opens its mouth smiles and moves when you do. Isn\u2019t that so cool?\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe Animoji was first introduced at the iPhone X launch in 2017. The roster of Animoj-capable handsets has since been expanded with the iPhone Xr, XS Max, XS, and now, the iPhone 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max. Animojis are created through Face ID, a facial-recognition feature developed by Apple. Faces are detected using the phone\u2019s front-facing camera. A chip inside the iPhone captures and analyses 50 different muscle movements in your face. It then mimics your expressions to produce Animoji.\r\n\r\n \r\nWhat is a Memoji?\r\nA Memoji works like an Animoji, but instead of turning into a cartoon, you create a cartoon version of yourself! Think of it as your very own, personalized Animoji. Through the magic of Memoji, you can animate parts of yourself like your skin color, hair color, eye color, ear shape, jewelry, facial hair, eyewear, headwear, etc. If you don\u2019t like the animation you did the first time, you can easily edit your Memoji to switch up your look. Different hair, different features, different accessories, they\u2019re yours for the taking in just a few clicks!\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\nHow To Get Memojis\r\nMemojis was rolled out by Apple back in 2018. Back then, Memojis could only be accessed by iPhones that had TrueDepth technology, but when iOS13 came about, Apple added several different Animoji and Memoji stickers that can be used on Apple devices with an A9 chip. iOS 13 is the thirteenth release of the iOS mobile operating system developed by Apple Inc for their iPhone and iPod Touch lines.\r\n\r\nMemojis are made by Apple and used to be only available on Apple devices. However, thanks to What's App Messenger, a cross-platform messaging service owned by Facebook, you can use and send Memojis from your Android Smartphone. Let\u2019s get deeper into that later.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\nHow To Make A Memoji\r\nCreating your own Memoji is very easy.
