Sometimes actions speak louder than words. The new and improved AR Emoji is perfect for just that, showing off to your friends and family through texts and other messaging platforms. New features have also been added to the AR Emoji like selecting the age of your AR Emoji, wider range of customisation options, adding a Mask, Mini motion and creating your own Stickers.

Using Mask

The AR Mask is perfect when you want to show off your new outfit but you may not be looking your best. Once you have selected this option and yourface has been recognised your AR Emoji will copy your facial expressions, try frowning or smiling or poking your tongue out.
