Unleash the fun of Animoji and Memojis

October 28th is International Animation Day – and what better way to mark the occasion than by animating yourself with iPhone X and iPhone Xs’ Animoji and Memoji feature?

Let’s get animated

Using the splendiferous front-facing TrueDepth camera on your iPhone X/Xs, you can use animated versions of emoji characters to create an up-to-30-second video message. Record audio while your chosen emoji follows your facial movements to a tee - transforming you into a cheeky monkey, cute pooch or whimsical ghost.

Interested in something a little more, well, you? Then Memoji is the one. Apple’s take on a personalised emoji-style avatar gives you the tools to create yourself. That’s right, you’ve finally made it to emoji status. Well done. We’ve been trying it out for ourselves and the result is hours of fun.

They’re super easy to create. Just open up a conversation on Messages, tap the Animoji button (a little monkey screaming) and you’ll be presented with a whole host of characters to choose from. Then tap record the record button and you have 30 seconds to bring your alter ego to life!

But wait, there’s more…

Sure, sending Messages is all well and good – but we have a feeling you’re going to want to take your new love of Animoji and Memoji even further. Here are some game-changing things you can do with your new animated buddies...

Did someone say karaoke?

Think of your go-to karaoke classic. Got it? Okay now imagine it being belted out by a rowdy rabbit or better yet, a sassy skeleton. Now imagine that you don’t have to just imagine anymore - because you can record your favourite jams being sung by an Animoji and post it straight on social media for the whole world to see. Just check out the sheer force of this Animoji Karaoke gem:

All you need to do is find a Karaoke version of your chosen track on YouTube - then sing your face off using Animoji. A fan of the original? Just lip-sync along and have a little fun with Snoop Dog the actual dog or Lion-el Richie.

Create a reaction GIF

If you love making your own GIFs or at least love the idea of it, then this feature is 100% for you. Record a shocked monkey face or a screaming poo emoji – then transform it into a GIF. A lot of chat platforms like WhatsApp will give you the handy option to turn your short Animoji or Memoji into a GIF right before you send.

Animoji movie magic

People have even been taking the Animoji craze to Blockbuster heights by uploading various movie scenes recreated with talking emojis.

Hilarious clips see Russell Crowe’s character from Gladiator turn into a chicken, and Al Pacino’s Tony Montana character from Scarface become an aggressive animated monkey. Check this out:

Explore the world of Animojis and Memojis yourself by buying the incredible iPhone Xs at Carphone Warehouse.
