The result: some of the cutest videos you will ever see.

After an original launch in 2017 when it was introduced on the iPhone X, Animoji has become a popular feature that has provided countless hours of fun and humor to the lives of Apple users. As the popularity of the feature rose, updates have come to the library of characters available. The iOS 12.2. update added new characters for the giraffe, shark, boar, and owl. Most recently, Animoji features were expanded with Apple's iOS 13 update on Sept. 19, along with other cool updates like Dark Mode, QuickPath typing, a new Carplay dashboard, and Memojis.
