Apple has introduced a new emoji feature in iOS 11 at its Event. Named Animoji, these are the animated versions of the popular emoji found on the iPhone. Animoji will use the Apple’s newly introduced Face ID hardware face-scanning features to create custom 3D versions based on users facial expressions.

Animoji will be available directly within the Messages app for the iOS 11. Apple describes Animoji as “custom animated messages that use your voice and reflect your facial expressions.”
