Google Messages gets Photomoji: Know what it is and here is how you can use it

Google recently added Photomoji, a cutting-edge feature that is poised to revolutionize the way people express themselves through messaging, to its Messages app. This feature was first made available only to beta testers, but in the upcoming weeks, it will be made available to all users.

What is Photomoji?

With Google Messages, a new feature called Photomoji allows users to use their own photos to create and send unique emoji reactions. This means you can use an image of your favorite pet, a funny picture of yourself, or even a picture of an object that perfectly captures how you’re feeling about a message. It’s like creating your own personalized emojis to add a more personal and intimate touch to your chats.

Unlike standard emojis, Photomoji lets you express emotions through your own facial expressions, personal photos, or objects that represent your emotions. This feature allows you to accurately capture your reactions with real-life images, going beyond the standard set of emojis.

Google wants to share some key information about Photomoji in order to help people understand this cool new feature. Photomoji is currently limited to using RCS chats, a specific kind of chat. Up to 30 Photomoji can be created and stored at once. You can modify or eliminate them whenever you want from the app’s special “Photomoji” section. However, since this feature is still being added for everyone, not everyone may see it just yet. Update your Google Messages app to see if it’s available for you, or consider signing up for the beta program to test it out ahead of time with a select group of testers.
