The Genies App is a Responsive, Topical Answer to Bitmojis

Bitmoji is hugely popular among not only Gen Z and Millennials, but every demographic, and the new Genie app hopes to capitalize on that success while also providing new features that aren't part of the Bitmoji platform. The app gives users the ability to personally craft animated avatars, but those avatars are automatically inserted into various short video scenes that are automatically pushed forward within the Genies app itself.

Clearly, the primary difference between Bitmoji and Genies is that Genies are movement-based, acting in videos rather than as still images in text messages. The next major difference is that Genies' designers put the avatars into situations that are topical and responsive to the current events that are most interesting to users.
