iOS 12 includes new Animoji characters, ‘Memoji’ avatar design feature

iOS 12 includes a handful of improvements to Apple’s Animoji feature, including new features and new character options. Furthermore, Apple has introduced a new Bitmoji-like Memoji feature for designing your own avatars…

The new character options include a ghost, a koala, a t-rex, and a tiger. The new filters work exactly how the existing Animoji filters do.

Apple also introduced a new Tongue Detection feature for Animoji. This feature means that Animoji will now support detecting and animating your tongue as you use Animoji.

Furthermore, a new Memoji feature will allow you to animate yourself and build a customized avatar. The setup process allows you to choose things such as glasses, your hairstyle, and much more. The feature is similar to Snapchat’s Bitmoji integration.
