Touchpal to offer FunMojis to all Android users

Touchpal has commited to bringing their own take on Apple's Animojis - called FunMojis - to users of the company's Android keyboard app in an update later this year.

Launched alongside Vivo's new V9 smartphone overseas, the Funmoji feature uses 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 FunMoji in action before sending them to friends over the usual social networks and messaging service apps.

The feature in action can be seen in a video.
