What is AR (Augmented Reality) Emoji and how do I use it?

PLEASE NOTE: that AR Emojis are only available on specific devices and some movements or expressions may not be recognised.

 

The icons and screens may differ slightly from the illustrations below depending on your device, operating system and theme.

AR (Augmented Reality) Emoji is a feature which creates an animated version of yourself which can then be used to record your movements and facial expressions.

 

More information on the different camera modes available, can be found by visiting What are the different camera modes and how do I use them.
