Apple Intelligence is here and among the slew of features that has caught people's attention is Genmoji

Genmoji was revealed during Apple's 2024 Worldwide Developers' Conference (WWDC) on 10 June (11 June for us Malaysians).

It's included as part of a suite of artificial intelligence (AI) features included in the Apple Intelligence family. These features, together with Genmoji, will be made available for the latest iPhones, iPads, and Macs once iOS 18 is rolled out sometime between September and December.

Unfortunately, any iOS devices that don't have the M1 chip built in won't be able to enjoy the features available with Apple Intelligence. iPhone 14 users, time to upgrade perhaps?

Genmoji allows Apple users more creativity when expressing themselves through emails and messages

Apple users who love emojis and have been struggling to find the perfect one that best describes their thoughts and feelings would appreciate Genmoji.

Powered by Apple Intelligence's Image Playground feature, Genmoji is easy to use.

The AI-generated images can be used in emails, messages, and other Genmoji-friendly apps. 

Simply describe an emoji you need and Genmoji will create it for you

You can be as descriptive as you want in the emoji description box when messaging or replying to your contact. The Genmoji appears in a matter of seconds upon prompting the feature.  

You can also turn a friend or family member's image into a Genmoji, thanks to the Image Playground feature.

Genmoji is designed for Apple users to be more expressive in their communication with their friends and family

In Apple's WWDC demo, Genmoji can also be shared as stickers or used as reactions in a Tapback.

Expect lots of expressive fun once the feature rolls out later this year.
