Animoji Stickers on iPhone
Apple released the Animoji along with the iPhone X, which makes use of its TrueDepth Camera. And, later with iOS 12, Apple released the Memoji which allows you to create your own custom Animoji and record videos with the custom one on iMessage. Initially, it was released only for iMessage users and later Apple expanded it and integrated along with the emoji keyboard on iPhone models.
If you are using iMessage to text your friends or family, you can have the Animoji or Memoji from the texting area itself, instead of finding it from the keyboard. However, on other third-party apps like Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp, you need to grab the Animoji from within the emoji keyboard itself. It allows you to send the Animojis as standard images, upon the tap. Well, it is never the perfect way to text someone, right? Most users would rather go with the standard emojis or other WhatsApp Stickers to express the emotion, instead of some images.
It was a highly demanding feature from WhatsApp users to let them send Animojis and Memojis as WhatsApp Stickers. Surprisingly, it is now possible to send custom stickers from Animoji collection, which Android users can never have.
