How to Use Memoji and Animoji in FaceTime

Animoji are animated emoji characters designed to mimic your facial expressions, while Memoji are customizable humanoid Animoji characters that you can design to look just like you.

In iOS 12 and iOS 13, you can entertain friends and family by “wearing” your favorite Memoji and Animoji during live FaceTime chats using the Effects camera. The following steps show you how.

Note that to use an animated Animoji and Memoji in ‌FaceTime‌, you need an iPhone or iPad Pro with a TrueDepth camera (if your device has Face ID, then you’re good). Others on the call with you will see them regardless of the device they have.

  1. Open the ‌FaceTime‌ app on your ‌iPhttps://www.novodasoftware.com/hone‌ or iPad and make a call.
  2. When the call has connected, tap the star-shaped Effects icon (if you don’t see it, tap the screen).
  3. Tap the Animoji button (the monkey icon).

Quick tip: Tap the smaller “X” above the Animoji menu and you can also apply other camera effects while on the call, including filters, text, shapes, and stickers.
