How to get iPhone X Animoji-styled feature on Android

11 December 2017 3

Apple introduced animated versions of the popular emoji found on the iPhone. This new feature uses the iPhone X Face ID feature to create custom 3D versions based on your own facial expressions. This new feature is something Android users really want as it’s quite cool to see emoji animating your face and expressions. This Animoji feature of iOS 11 works exclusively on iMessage app. The Animoji mouth also animates to match the words being spoken.

Animoji on iPhone X immediately picks up the facial expressions and animate accordingly. Well, for now, there isn’t any official way to use such animated emojis on Android. But there are a few apps on Google Play Store that allow creating funny animated emojis with the help of a set of emojis. Well, only a few matches with the emojis which are available on iOS.

Also, the apps available as workarounds don’t offer the same accuracy and feel, but, they aren’t really disappointing. Well, there’s a huge difference between the Animoji present on iPhone X and the third-party apps on Android trying to solve your purpose. The iPhone X Animoji feature uses Apple’s facial recognition technology and it makes sense that this feature will capture facial expression with extreme accuracy and creates a 3D imagery.

Make 3D animated emoji on Android

Here are three apps, with the help of which you can create 3D animated emoji on Android and share with your friends.

App 1: Animoji for phone X + Live Emoji Face Swap Emoticon


There’s an app called “Animoji for phone X + Live Emoji Face Swap Emoticon,” solves a bit of your purpose as it allows you to solve the video to the social media accounts. This app uses the face-scanning feature of your Android phone to create a custom version of 3D, based on the facial expressions detected by the app.

To use this app, you just need to keep your face straight so that the app could detect it and apply the emoji. There are a bunch of emojis available in the app, select the preferred one and align your face with the required area as told. This animates with the movement of your face but doesn’t imitate the expressions. However, it tells you to open the face, but that doesn’t make any difference. The app requires phones running Android 4.3 or above.

App 2: Animoji Camera

The next app is the Animoji Camera, which looks a bit better than the Animoji for Phone X. It does react to your expressions, however, no accurately, but better. It requires phones running Android 4.3 and above. The bad part is, there's only one emoji available to try out.

App 3: Phone X Animoji 3D


There’s one more app that called Phone X Animoji 3D. This app for Android reacts to expressions like, it smiles, and opens mouth and blinks an eye, but again the experience isn’t that present but not that bad that it can’t save your purpose. You can try out all these apps from the links provided below. The app requires phones running Android 5.0 and above.

Note: Users should carry out the steps at their own risk. Mobilescout shouldn't be held responsible for anything going wrong. All these apps contain ads, so be sure of getting them.
