This guide will show you how to use Memoji on the iPhone X to make your own custom Animoji that you can use in Messages and in FaceTime.

Think of this as a Bitmoji Animoji, but it’s not as easy to get a perfect duplicate as with other services.

One upside to the Memoji is that you can create several of these so that you have one for every situation, funny, formal and everyday.

The Memoji iOS 12 feature only works on the iPhone X, iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max and iPhone Xr.
