A compelling use case for Memoji is in FaceTime. It lets you use your preferred Memoji instead of your face during a FaceTime video call. It is fun, and you can give it a go. Here is how to use Memoji in FaceTime on iPhone and iPad Pro.
How to Use Camera Effects with Memoji
- Open Messages app → go to a conversation → tap on the camera icon.
- Tap on the effects icon at the bottom left corner of the screen
- Tap on the Animoji icon.
- Next up, select the Memoji that you want to use. The moment you choose your avatar, it will show up on the camera screen. Then, tap on the “X” to get rid of the Animoji bar.
- Up next, your character will continue to appear on the screen. Now, you can design it using filters, text, shapes, stickers, or other funny stuff you have. You can drag the shapes and other things that you add. Tap on the added character once and then the cross icon (x) to delete them. (You can also do these after you click the photo with effects.)
- When you are happy with the result, capture the image by tapping on the shutter button. Now, you can use Markup or other editing tools to fine-tune your shot. You may even change the Memoji. In the end, tap the blue arrow icon to send it.
How to Edit Memoji Stickers

- Swipe until you find the desired Memoji
- Tap on three dots at the bottom left corner
- Next up, you have three options:
- Edit: It lets you change the looks of your avatar. Tap on it and then fine-tune it to your heart’s liking. In the end, tap on Done.
- Duplicate: It allows you to create another similar avatar. But you can design your look from the ground zero if you wished to embrace a complete change. In the end, tap on Done.
- Delete: Select this option if you don’t want to use this Memoji anymore and confirm.
This is how you can use Memoji on your iPhone and iPad Pro. It is fun, and the plethora of customization options ensure that you get the look that you desire.
