When Apple first introduced Memoji, it was only available on devices that had Face ID. Animating Memoji still requires Face ID, but who needs to animate them when you can send emoji stickers instead? You can choose from a variety of skin tones, hair colors, and accessories (a list that continues to grow each year). Once you've customized your Memoji, check out your sticker pack in the Messages app.
Where can you use Memoji stickers?
Memoji stickers work similar to any sticker pack you can add to your keyboard on iPhone and iPad. They work best in the Messages app where you can "peel" them off and stick them on a message bubble. But you can also use them in Apple's built-in apps like the Mail and Notes app, as well as, third-party apps like Twitter and Slack. Pretty much the only place you can't use Memoji stickers is when you're typing into a browser URL or some similar text field.
