Just this month, Mirror AI made its Mirror Emoji Keyboard available for iOS and Android users to download, making it as easy as possible for smartphone users to create emoji icons in their likeness.
Powered by facial recognition technology, the keyboard app has users take a selfie to create personalized emojis and stickers that can be sent to friends via chat messages. In the future, Mirror AI is also looking to incorporate the creation of custom emoji icons for groups and pets.
Although emojis offer a myriad of ways for device users to engage one another, consumers are hoping to express themselves more authentically with custom emojis. Alongside the Mirror Emoji Keyboard from Mirror AI, young smartphone users are also turning to the Genies app, Bitmoji and Google's Allo app, which also features selfie stickers.
