Emoji Your Selfie

If you're always sending selfies and emojis to your friends and family, you're going to love your Galaxy phone - it lets you can turn yourself into an emoji. You can even send the emoji to your contacts in Messages! Keep reading to learn how to create, edit, and send your new emoji.

Available screens and settings may vary depending on the carrier and software version.

This feature is only available on select phone models running Android 8.0.

Turn Yourself into an Emoji

Create the Emoji

If you're ready to see the cartoon version of yourself, open the Camera app and then swipe to AR EMOJI. Touch Create My Emoji, and then touch ALLOW. Follow the on-screen instructions, and when you're ready, touch Capture. Touch Male or Female, and then touch NEXT. Meet your very own emoji!

Edit Your Emoji

You can only change your emoji's fine details BEFORE you save your emoji. You cannot change those details after you’ve saved the final version.

Hmm, something is a little off - do your ears really look like that? If you want to edit some of the finer details, don't worry. Before you save your emoji, touch the Edit icon in the upper right-hand corner. From there, select your desired categories and change your emoji's features as needed. When you are done, touch SAVE.

Personalize Messages with Your Emoji

Why have your own emoji if you can't share it with anyone? No worries, adding an emoji to your Messages is a cinch. Open the Messages app and create a new message. Touch the Enter message field and the on-screen keyboard will appear. Touch Stickers (the square smiley face) and you'll see GIFS of your very own avatar. Select your desired emoji, and then touch Send.

Delete Emojis

You recently changed your style and feel like making a new emoji to match your new image. If you want to delete an old emoji, feel free. Follow the instructions below to learn how.

Delete the Emoji Itself

Open the Camera app and then swipe to AR EMOJI. Touch and hold the emoji you want to delete and then touch the red Delete icon. You will be asked if you want to delete that emoji's stickers. Touch DELETE.
