How to Use Genmoji

Genmoji, short for generative emoji, is a cutting-edge feature that leverages AI to create emojis based on your descriptions. This innovative tool allows you to generate unique, personalized emojis by simply typing in a description.

Here are the steps to use Genmoji in iOS 18:

  • Bring up the keyboard and tap on the emoji icon
  • In the emoji menu, find and tap the Genmoji icon.
  • Type in a description for the Genmoji you want to create.
  • You will see several Genmoji options generated based on your description.
  • Scroll through and choose the one you like.
  • Tap the "Insert" button to add the Genmoji inline to messages.

Users can create a Genmoji of friends and family based on their photos. Like emojis, Genmoji can be shared as stickers or reactions in a Tapback. However, it's unclear if they are supported in third-party apps like WhatsApp or Snapchat.
