Apple's Memojis offer a fun way to customize your iMessages, but you can also use them to liven up a video calls. Next time you use FaceTime to chat with your friends, you can use your Memojis and Memoji stickers for a personalized touch. Here's how to use Memojis on Facetime for a perfectly animated call.
If you've never used Apple Memojis before, you'll need to make one to get started. To do so, make sure you've updated your iPhone to iOS 13.1.4, which was released on March 25. Then, head to your iMessages. Once there, look through the keyboard options and tap on the Memoji icon (represented by 3D emoji faces). Then, select the plus sign to start creating your likeness. The interface is similar to creating a Bitmoji on Snapchat, but you'll find way more personalization options for your Memoji. Tap "done" when you've finished to save your Memoji.
Unfortunately, Memojis are exclusive to Apple iOS, and Android users don't have FaceTime either, so in this case, those without iPhones are out of luck. If you would still like to create a Memoji, try asking one of your friends if you can create one on their iPhone, take screenshots, and send them to your phone.
To start using Memojis on your FaceTime calls, follow the steps below.
FaceTime and Memojis
- Make a FaceTime call.
- Once you're in the call, select the effects button (the little flower icon).
- Next, you can select the Animoji icon or the Memoji sticker icon, depending on how you want to use the sticker. If you want to replace your face, choose the Animoji icon and scroll to find the Memoji or Animoji you want. Otherwise, select the Memoji sticker icon. This will let you choose a sticker to place anywhere you want on the screen.
- After you've selected one, the Memoji will appear in the call.
- If you want to swap out the Memoji for a different one, go back into the effects gallery and follow the same steps to replace it.
Replacing your face with a Memoji will look like this:
Now that you know what to do, get ready to change up your video calls with Memojis on FaceTime to customize your calls.
