Animojis may have been one of the most talked about iPhone X features at launch, but are currently limited to iPhone X only. This is understandable, given that the software used to create these animations uses all the high-end Face ID hardware not found in any other smartphone yet. In this case, you won’t even be able to get Animojis on the iPhone 8, 8 Plus or other devices from the Cupertino giant. However, if you’re using an Android smartphone but are really digging into singing firefoxes and talking giant pandas, there are apps on the Google Play Store that can somehow replicate the Animoji experience on your Android device. That being the case, let’s take a look at some of the best apps you can use to use iPhone X’s Animojis on Android smartphones and tablets:
note: Animojis on iPhone X use special Face ID hardware (cameras and sensors) to create a 3D model of the face; therefore, it is much more accurate and brighter than any normal application. The apps mentioned below do a very good job of giving you an idea of how the feature actually feels, but it’s not as capable or accurate as the real McCoy. So manage your expectations before going any further.
