To send your Memoji to one of your friends, just access your WhatsApp stickers. Unfortunately, it is not possible to save them on your Android keyboard for SMS to be sent.

If you are just too busy to try this method, you should know that there are several Memoji alternatives available for Android smartphones. In fact, these apps are much easier to use than trying the “convoluted” method mentioned above. On the other hand, this was for people who wanted to see these iOS-only memoji on Android devices.

There are several apps that you can use to create memojis on Android devices. Let’s look at two alternatives that caught our attention.

Google Bitmoji

Perhaps the easiest is Google’s GBoard keyboard app, which bakes Bitstrip’s Bitmoji memojis in its settings. If you don’t have Gboard installed, you can download it from the Play Store. Once installed, all you have to do is click the smiley face in the left corner of the keyboard. What you need to do now is select either the ‘Minis’ or ‘Bitmoji’ option.

Clicking Mini will immediately take you to a screen where you can take a selfie to make a memoji. If you click the Bitmoji option and the Bitmoji app is not already installed on your phone, Gboard will prompt you to install the app. Now all you have to do is follow the on-screen instructions for Bitmoji and you will soon have plenty of memojis to choose from on your Android phone.

While there is talk of Bitstrip’s memojis not being as “artful” as Apple’s, we’re pretty sure these memojis will keep most Android users happy.

Samsung AR Emoji

If you are jealous of Memoji and a Samsung user at the same time, consider yourself lucky. Because the Korean smartphone brand offers perhaps the “best” Memoji alternative for Android smartphones. The key to happiness lies in the “AR-Zone” app, which should be preinstalled on your Samsung smartphone.

  1. Open the AR zone.
  2. Create an AR emoji with the AR emoji camera.
  3. Then go back to the main menu and create a sticker pack with the selection “AR Emoji Stickers”.
  4. Now you can select and send the stickers on the Samsung keyboard (also pre-installed).

Aside from these two apps, we don’t recommend trying any other Memoji apps that you might find on the Google Play Store. These apps often hide subscription traps or the apps promise a lot more than they actually deliver. But hey, who should we judge? Let us know if you know of any other valuable Memoji apps for Android!
