Samsung’s AR Emojis — augmented-reality avatars that mimic users’ expressions, transforming users via the camera app and offering a unique and creative way to inject personality into messages.
Since the feature’s introduction with the Galaxy S9, Samsung Electronics and Disney have teamed up to bring a number of Disney characters to life as downloadable AR Emojis. Now, the addition of three beloved characters from Disney’s hit movie “Zootopia” has made messaging on Galaxy devices even more magical.
Judy Hopps, Nick Wilde, and Flash join the ever-growing roster of animated Disney characters that are currently available for users to download, including Mickey Mouse and friends as well as characters from “The Incredibles” and “Frozen.”
To download the new characters, simply access the camera’s AR Emoji mode, tap the plus icon on the right-hand side, and select the Zootopia AR Emoji pack from the Galaxy Apps store.
Once downloaded, users will be able to easily create and share the animated emojis as images, videos or gifs in their favorite messaging app. (Apps that do not support animated GIFs may still send AR Emoji stickers as a still image.) They can also apply an AR Emoji of Judy, Nick, Flash, or any of the other characters listed above as a GIF and pin it on the device’s Always On Display, or apply it as a video on their lock screen’s wallpaper. (Function supports videos up to 15 seconds in length.)
Samsung and Disney’s latest AR Emoji characters are available for download at the Galaxy Apps store.
