We will be introducing our very own AR Emoji on TouchPal Keyboard for Android users. It is the first AR Emoji feature in a keyboard app and can be used on all Android devices with a front facing camera that runs TouchPal Keyboard.
Unlike Apple’s Animoji, which relies on iPhone X’s TrueDepth Camera System to operate and is only available through iMessage, TouchPal’s AR Emoji is compatible with all front cameras on any Android device and can be used on many popular messaging apps such as WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, LINE, WeChat, and more.
Please see the demo video:
To start using TouchPal’s AR Emoji, open TouchPal Keyboard on any messaging app and click on the smiley face near the bottom-left corner of the keyboard. Select the winking face on the right-end of the emoji tab and select from one of the four exciting emoticon characters. Click the red button to start recording your AR Emoji up to 10 seconds long. AR Emoji will record both voice and facial expressions. Once the AR Emoji is finished recording, users have the option to share it with their friends and family.
