TouchPal Introduces the First AR Emoji in a Keyboard App
Mountain View, California., June 14, 2018 — TouchPal just released its very own AR Emoji on TouchPal Keyboard Pro for Android users. It is the first AR Emoji feature in a keyboard app and can be used on all Android devices with a front facing camera that runs TouchPal Keyboard Pro.
“We’re thrilled to bring a more versatile AR Emoji to Android users.” said Michael Wong, TouchPal’s CEO. “Our AR Emoji can cover an array of Android devices, bringing joy to every corner of the world.”
Unlike Apple’s Animoji, which relies on iPhone X’s TrueDepth Camera System to operate and is only available through iMessage, TouchPal’s AR Emoji is compatible with all front cameras on any Android device and can be used on many popular messaging apps such as WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, LINE, WeChat, and more.
To start using TouchPal’s AR Emoji, open TouchPal Keyboard Pro on any messaging app and click on the smiley face near the bottom-left corner of the keyboard. Select the winking face on the right-end of the emoji tab and select from one of the four exciting emoticon characters. Click the red button to start recording your AR Emoji up to 10 seconds long. AR Emoji will record both voice and facial expressions. Once the AR Emoji is finished recording, users have the option to share it with their friends and family.
In addition to the AR Emoji function, TouchPal introduced Talia, a personal assistant equipped with many intelligent features, to TouchPal Keyboard Pro earlier this year. Talia will automatically utilize features like weather forecast, dining recommendations, currency conversion, and more, to provide users with relevant information based on the conversation. Users will not need to switch between apps or manually activate voice command to receive these information any longer. This demonstrates TouchPal’s advanced technological arsenal and their continued dedication to creating more user-friendly experiences.
With the largest number of third-party keyboard users worldwide, TouchPal Keyboard has users in over 240 countries and regions and supports over 110 different languages.
Download the latest TouchPal Keyboard Pro with AR Emoji and Talia from Google Play now. Both will soon be available on the iOS.
