NIX Solutions: Apple Introduces Genmoji

Boring standard emojis are a thing of the past. Apple announced a new feature called Genmoji as part of the presentation of new features for the iOS 18 operating system at the WWDC 2024 conference. Genmoji will allow users to create personalized emojis for any situation.

Despite the constantly increasing number of built-in emojis in iOS, there are still situations where there isn’t a suitable emoji to express the desired emotion or idea. Genmoji solves this problem by harnessing the power of artificial intelligence. To create a personal emoticon, users simply enter its description into the search, and iOS 18 will instantly generate the appropriate option. This feature is perfect for expressing specific emotions and ideas that standard emoji sets cannot yet convey.

Personalization and Compatibility

Unlike regular emojis, Genmoji will be implemented as images rather than Unicode characters, notes NIX Solutions. This decision is due to the need to display personal emoticons correctly on devices from other manufacturers, ensuring cross-platform compatibility. While this technical detail won’t have any practical implications for end users, it highlights Apple’s commitment to seamless communication across different devices.

According to Apple representatives, Genmoji will be an excellent solution for personalizing communication and expressing unique emotions. Initially, the function will be added to applications for the iPad, and then it will appear on the iPhone. We’ll keep you updated on further developments and the rollout of Genmoji across more devices.
