Google has launched “Mini” stickers for iOS and Android which personalise the emoji from your picture.

The feature uses a combination of “machine learning, neural networks and artist illustrations” that represents the different characteristics like your skin tone, hairstyle and colour, the colour of your eye, the shape of your face and even facial hair.

Google retreating from military AI project: reports

Google released this feature as a “selfie stickers” for the Allo chat app last year.

Mini is able to create 100 new sticker styles using your personalised avatar on top of the existing ones that had rolled out with Allo selfie stickers. The designs come in Bold and Sweet modes which you can use instead of writing the words.

Google launches free Wi-Fi hotspots 

All you have to do is download the Gboard app as your primary keyboard, tap the emoji button on the left of the spacebar, select the stickers icon, tap on the Mini icon and create. This will lead you to take a selfie, then you create a new emoji.
