Animoji karaoke takes over social media

Up above is just one well done example, but you can also find the Macarena sung by a group of animoji, a brand new version of the popular Despacito and many others. Animoji are simply the emoji characters which are synced up to with your face through Apple's new true depth camera and they move as you move your face.

The lip-synching emojis have taken over social media in the past week as users have created increasingly complex recordings ranging from the poop emoji's rendition of Madonna's "Like A Prayer" to a unicorn, dog duet performing Warren G and Nate Dogg's "Regulate".

iPhone X users can create Animoji recordings up to 10 seconds long in the Messages app, but the internet discovered that iOS 11's new screen recording featureallows for much lengthier clips. It looks like people are going insane over the new iPhone feature and uploading their "Animoji Karaoke" on the internet.

The idea was conceived by technology reporter Harry McCracken, who decided it might be fun to lip-sync a song and have an Animoji character mimic his performance. You have that handsome OLED screen and the new Face ID unlock technology but the thing you might see popping up around the web more frequently is the new animoji. Here are some of them.
