Last Update Date : May 07. 2018

Augmented Reality (AR) is a view of the physical real-world environment with superimposed computer-generated images. With AR Emoji, you can create a 3D avatar of yourself using the camera of your Galaxy S9/S9+


• Use your selfie to create an animated emoji.
• 18 pre-set animated emojis (in AGIF file format) can be generated automatically.
• New Disney characters have been added, including Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse.



There are multiple ways to send and share your Emojis.  

Please follow the steps listed below: 


1 Launch the Messages app > Add the contact you wish to share your emoji.
2 Tap the 'Sticker' button on the right side of the text box > Tap the Menu icon to reveal more emojis.
3 Select the emoji you wish to send > Tap DONE.
4 Write a message then > Tap on the 'Send' icon.

Note: Apps that do not support animated GIFs may send AR Emoji stickers as a still image.
