The way of sharing both Animoji and Memoji varies. On the one hand, you can create videos in which the chosen Animoji or Memoji imitates all the gestures you make with your face while you speak, to later share it through different media. On the other hand, you can make use of the Animoji or Memoji stickers, which have also been increasing throughout the iOS updates.

Unfortunately Memoji are not compatible with all devices, at least not their creation. Only those devices that are compatible with iOS 13 or higher have the possibility to create Memojis to be able to use them in the different applications.

Initially, the Cupertino company reserved this function only for those users who had an iPhone that had a TrueDepth camera, however, after updating to iOS 13, all devices compatible with this version can, at least, create their own Memojis, however, not everyone can make use of animated Memoji, that is, being able to record video and having the Memoji itself imitate the gestures that the user is making with his face, to be able to use this on the iPhone or iPad if you have to have a TrueDepth camera.
