How to Share AR Emoji on your Galaxy S9

The iPhone X’s animated emoji starred in a popular commercial and you can only imagine that Samsung wants in on that action, offering an Animoji rival with the Galaxy S9, in the form of AR Emoji. As you have already discovered, Samsung’s AR Emoji converts facial expressions into humanoid cartoons that can blink or smile and look so fun!

The iPhone X takes many data points of your face with its True Depth camera, while the company’s Galaxy S9 uses selfie photos and machine learning to create avatars, so some aren’t completely pleased by the result. I am not one of them and even if when animated, the S9’s emoji are a little creepy, I totally love to use them.

After you create your emoji, the S9 creates no less than 18 animated stickers of your emoji expressing various moods that you can share with your friends.
