Explained: Animoji on the iPhone X

The iPhone X came into our life this week, and so too did the ability to turn ourselves into a expressive unicorn.

Described Animoji as “custom animated messages that use your voice and reflect your facial expressions”

Using iOS11, the new TrueDepth and A11 Bionic chip, the iPhone X captures and analyzes over 50 different facial muscle movements, then animates those expressions in a dozen different Animoji, including a panda, unicorn and robot.

Available as an iMessage app pre-installed on iPhone X, customers can record and send Animoji messages with their voice that can smile, frown and more.
