The Chudo app lets you turn the user's face into 3D emojis, with an effect very similar to that used on Animojis, iPhone X and above. With the feature available for Android and iPhone (iOS) phones, you can take photos or record videos with animal faces and characters synchronized with their facial expressions. Contrary to what Apple's service requires, the free tool captures the movements with the smartphone's camera. That is, the service does not need facial recognition sensors to get the result.
The platform offers various animation options such as dog, monkey, rabbit, fox, tiger, cat, gnome, pineapple and koala. Other unique animated faces, such as the unicorn and snowman, need to be purchased separately and start at $ 0.90 each. Results can be shared on social networks and messengers such as Instagram, WhatsApp and Facebook. Here's how to turn your face into a 3D emoji with the Chudo app. The procedure was performed on a device with Apple's operating system, but the tips apply to other versions of the software as well as devices programmed by Google.
