Apple’s free video creation app Clips is getting a pretty major update this week. Just in time for the holidays, Apple is adding some fun new characters to Clips, along with some new stickers.
The new characters are, of course, powered by Memoji and Animoji. If you have an iPhone X or newer, you will be able to get Memoji and Animoji on the Clips app.
What that essentially means is that you can now have yourself show up as an Animoji/Memoji character while you are recording selfie videos within the app. “Users can now easily share personal video messages, slideshows, school projects and mini movies with more personality than ever. Animated stickers and emoji can now follow the movements of a user’s face for fun selfie videos using the front-facing camera on iPhone and iPad,” said Apple.
Users will also be able to later other elements like animated text, artistic filters, and stickers over their Animoji and Memoji characters. What’s more, Apple says users can even change the Animoji character after recording a video which is pretty cool. You can also now attach animated stickers and emoji to a user’s face, so it will follow the user’s face movement when they move around, much like Snapchat.
The update introduces a new Let It Snow effect and seven new Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse stickers as well.
