There are two kinds of animated emojis available on your Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9+ that turn you into either an animated My Emoji or your favorite cartoon characters. Creating and using your own animated augmented reality emoji, called My Emoji, is simple. Open the Camera app, switch to Selfie mode, tap AR Emoji and then Create avatar. From there, follow the instructions to make your own AR Emoji that follows your movements. With AR Emoji, you can record videos and take selfies using the animated emojis as a mask.
Once you've created My Emoji, tap AR Emoji in the Camera app, select your Emoji or a character mask, and hit the shutter button to take a selfie, or the Record button to shoot a video. You can also use your Emoji in chat apps, getting your message across by using the stickers that are instantly produced when you make My Emoji.
