If you’re a fan of emojis, then you probably enjoy using them to make your messages, posts and tweets more fun.
Bu you know how emojis can be even more fun?
Bitmojis are emojis that feature you. Unlike regular emojis that look the same for everyone, Bitmojis are unique to you because they are you.
You can create a Bitmoji to look like you. If you’ve ever created an avatar for yourself, you get the idea. You can make your Bitmoji look just like you, what you want to look like, or something a bit crazy.
Bitmojis can be used in text messages, email, social media and more. You can use them on your phone, tablet and computer.
And they’re free to create and use.

Creating Your Bitmoji
The app and the website will guide you through designing your Bitmoji. Create your Bitmoji by choosing the shape of your face and other facial features, such as your nose, eyes, hair, eyeglasses and other features that make you you.
You can choose the actual color of your hair and eyes to reflect the real you or go wild to become what you aspire to be.
Then choose what clothes you want to wear, by color or how dressy you want to be. Add accessories such as a hat or hairband. The app gives more choices of outfits than the website does, but you’ll have plenty to choose from either way.
You can dress up your Bitmoji in the uniform of your favorite team, as a superhero, or in a Halloween costume. You can even put designer outfits on your Bitmoji if you’re feeling fashionable.
You may even want to dress as your Bitmoji for Halloween!
