    Apple today at its WWDC keynote introduced personalized Animoji known as Memoji, a feature coming in iOS 12.

    Memojis are highly customizable, with multiple options for skin colors, hairstyles, head shapes, eyes, eyebrows, facial hair, eyewear, and headwear.

    Once a Memoji has been created, it can be used just like an Animoji, with the iPhone X's facial recognition sensors mimicking real-time facial expressions and head movements. Starting with iOS 12, that includes wink and tongue detection.

    The existing set of Animoji is also expanding to include a ghost, koala, tiger, and tyrannosaurus rex in iOS 12.

    Memoji can only be created on the iPhone X, but they can be sent in Messages across most Apple devices. They can also be used in FaceTime video chats, alongside other new camera effects and filters such as "comic book" and "watercolor."

    Memoji are similar to Samsung's new AR Emoji, but they also share a similar concept with Bitmoji on Snapchat.

    This is like a non crappy, non creepy version of what Samsung did.

    I like it. Makes me wish I had an X instead of an 8+.

    Blatant copy is Samsung's feature. So desperate. Lol. Something tells me the loyalist that called the feature stupid on the Samsung, will somehow now find it "fun."
    :rolleyes:

    How is this thread, much less headline worthy?

    Is this tiger beat magazine or macrumors?

    I thought it would be able to animate memes, disappointed in Apple

    It’s just as pathetically stupid on the iPhone as it is on any other device.

    Ok, I made the joke before the keynote about more animoji, but having a personalized emoji with the quality of the design and animations that Apple put into this is somewhat appealing. I can see my kids having fun playing with this.

    As a rainbow unicorn myself, I have no need for this.

    Don’t worry, I’m a loyalist and the feature is stupid on both phones.

    When that was demoed today, my mind went to the scene in the Jobs movie where Steve tells the engineer saying how typeface isn't an issue to "get out.." Only this time, I imagine Craig demoing the Memogi to Steve Jobs and getting the same response.

    And Samsungs feature was a half, no, quarter-baked copy of the animoji's Apple released last year. I guess it's equally crappy/awesome on both platforms. Although I personally think Apples execution of it is waaaay more polished and usable.

    ...and there is no way to opt out of this BS and not have it take up space on your phone (short of putting up with the nagging update notifications). What a tragic waste. The decline under Cook continues unimpeded.

    And sadly there is no way to opt out of posts like this, and not have it take up space on your screen. What a tragic waste. Everything in life must be terrible for you. Isn't there someone on your lawn you need to yell at?
