WhatsApp: How to Create an Emoji of my Face to Share it in Chats
A new WhatsApp trick is causing a sensation on social networks, as it allows users to turn their faces into emojis and thus share them in conversations with their friends and family. This secret feature is available for Android or iPhone phones. Would you like to learn it? Here we show you.
Step by step to create an emoji of your face on iPhone
With the iOS 12 operating system and its latest versions, users can create a memo that fits their personality and mood, and send it via WhatsApp. To create it, follow these steps:
Open Messages and tap the Compose button to create a message. Or tap an existing conversation.
Tap the Memoji button, then swipe right and tap the New Memoji button.
Customize memoji characteristics such as skin tone, hairstyle, eyes, and more.
After the memoji has been created, on the iOS keyboard, click on the emoji icon, the one to the left of the space bar.
Now you just have to move the emoji icons from right to left: your personalized stickers will appear from the created memoji.
Click on the sticker you want and it will be sent like any other WhatsApp sticker.
Step by step to create an emoji of your face on Android
Unlike iOS, to create a memo that you can share with your friends on WhatsApp, you need to turn to Facebook to create it. You just have to follow these instructions:
Open Facebook from the mobile application of your cell phone.
Go to the More options menu, which is located on the upper right side, in the icon of the three horizontal lines.
Now scroll down and select the Avatar option.
Once there, all you have to do is choose your facial and physical features to make your avatar more like you.
After completing this process you can now share your memojis and share it with your WhatsApp contacts, you just have to perform the following steps:
Go to the Facebook Settings menu, which is in the upper right, in the three horizontal lines.
Select the Avatar option and, upon entering, you will find all the sticker options that were created when you designed your avatar. There you select the one you want to use in WhatsApp.
Once the sticker is selected, a pop-up window will appear, you must click on More options and choose Messenger Chats.
Then share it in the chat of your choice and save the image of the memoji.
On Android, you can also use third-party applications to create a memoji. With Bitmoji you can create it in a very similar way to the one we have explained about iPhone. You will choose how you look based on a “digital copy” that the program obtains from a selfie of you.
