Vivo has committed to bringing their own take on vivo’s animojis – called AR Emojis or funmoji in vivo smartphone- to users of the company’s Android keyboard app in an update later this year.
Launched alongside Vivo’s new V9 smartphone overseas, Vivo’s AR Emojis (called FunMojis in the Vivo version of the feature) use your phone’s front-facing camera and microphone to transplant a users’ facial expressions and voice onto a cute 3D animated avatar. Users are able to record ten second clips of their AR Emoji in action before sending them to friends over the usual social networks and messaging service apps.
The move would make VivoEmoji the second major company to follow in Androids’s footsteps and offer this sort of AR-enhanced animated emojis.
However, unlike vivo (who launched their own Vivo Emoji’s with the Vivo smartphone x21 and v9+ earlier this year), vivo’s fun Emojis won’t be locked to any particular Android handset. If you can install
ADVERTISEMENT the v11 Pro keyboard on your phone, you should have access to these Emojis. This is important because it erodes the potential value of the feature as a point of difference between vivo, and the other smartphone brands out there.
