With iPhone X, you can create short clips or GIFs of your own emoticon and send it to friend and family. At first, it might feel a bit clumsy but believe me, it’s awesome. Now coming to the reality, well affording an iPhone X is by far, more than expensive. The question arises on how to get the iPhone X Animoji on Android? The quest for a good alternative for the animoji leads us to certain apps in the play store. Among them, we found an app that can do almost a similar job for Android users to make iPhone Animoji on Android platform.
Editors Note: The iPhone X Animoji uses Apple’s facial recognition technology, which captures facial expression with extreme accuracy and creates a 3D imagery. You can’t get the same accuracy or feel with this Android Animoji App, but so far this is the “best in town” for Android Animoji fans.

Based on our test, the app can detect one or two faces on the camera and apply the same mask to both faces.

Personal Emotions & Animoji for Android
Another cool alternative which we found was the emoji maker. This free Emoji App from PlayStore was by far a pleasant one, letting you create our own customized emoji the way you need. The emoji maker takes us to the home screen filled with some popular emojis and an ‘add new button’. Tapping on the ‘add new’ button leads to the next screen stuffed with dozens of unbuilt emojis. Just swipe to the left that gives access to tons of new scrappy emojis. These Emojis could be made into a brand new avatar as you wish. The best results could be obtained by pairing this iPhone Emoji app with Kika keyboard Android App. The keyboard lets you send these new custom made emojis with your friends, family with Kika as the default keyboard.
The developers provided a short startup tutorial about this Android Emoji app to help you make some cool and funky emojis. And yes, the app could be taken as an alternative if you can compromise a bit. However, personal Emoji App doesn’t let you create Animojis the way the iPhone does. That’s right, this app doesn’t recognize your facial expression to process 3D emojis. The biggest flaw which we came across is the presence of ads (oh! this app has a real issue with the ads). Literally, numerous ads pop up each time we touch the app. The emoji maker gives you a good emoji making experience if you can compromise the Ads on the app.
