Like many technology companies, Microsoft recently unveiled a new feature similar to Apple’s Animoji, named after puppets.
The company used 3D face tracking technology, which uses cameras on most smartphones, that work through the SwiftKey keyboard.
Microsoft has made it possible to create animated 3D emoticons that can mimic user facial expressions, while Microsoft said it has benefited from another AI company to make this feature available on the ground.
The puppets will allow users to register themselves as pandas, dinosaurs, owls and others, directly through the keyboard, including head movements, flash, smiles and more.
The Microsoft team said in a statement: “We used thousands of pictures and videos of volunteers to train a neural network capable of identifying expressions and the movements of each person in real time, in order to develop this feature. ”
The report pointed out that this feature is currently available to users of Android, specifically the trial version of the panel Sweetie on the Google play store, but it will be available during the coming period for all users of Android and iOS users.
