In this tutorial, we will be teaching you how to make a Memoji on iPhone and also use it to create fun videos but first, lets find out what Memoji is.
What is Memoji?
Memoji is a feature on all iPhone messages with the TrueDepth camera system running on iOS 12 (like the iPhone X, iPhone Xs, Xs Max and XR) which allows users to create their own emoji, which may or may not look like them, while also allowing the created Emoji to mimic their facial expressions in real time. In a nutshell, Memoji allows you to create and control your own Emoji. This is not to be confused with animoji which just allows you to control the already existing Emojis but allows you to create a new one to control, from start to finish.
You can chooses the colour of the eyes, type of eyebrows, hair type and lots more to get the exact look you’re going for. So basically, you can call the Memoji an Animoji 2.0 (if that makes any sense). Now that we know what Memoji is, lets go ahead and make one on your iPhone.
