Apple is doing well with Apple Intelligence and its customization possibilities. Emojis are no exception with the possibility of creating them from scratch. A functionality that could also be found at Google.

iOS 18 was released to the public in June 2024 headlined by Apple Intelligence. Among its features, we discovered Genmoji, emojis created by artificial intelligence. A feature that sparked a reaction from its competitor Google, where we have spotted the first traces of a similar feature for the Pixel 9.

AI for more emotions

Emojis are now part of our vocabulary. True spelling punctuation, you can however find yourself caught off guard and use an emoji by default. A situation that could be ancient history. On Apple’s side, Genmojis work like Dall-E: you create your image by describing it or, you make it from photos. Google is reportedly developing an identical function according to Android Authority.

Exploring the Android 15 beta code, Android Authority reportedly came across lines of code suggesting that Google would be working on a feature called Creative Assistant. The functionality, although present, cannot currently be experienced. Android Authority suggests that this feature could allow users to use a “remix” function of stickers using generative AI. While the information suggests that the feature would run on the Pixel 9, there is no guarantee that the feature will be extended to the entire Pixel range. It is also difficult to know whether this functionality will work locally or through a cloud system.

This is not the first time that Google has tried its hand at customizing emojis. In 2020, Google Gboard added an Emojis Kitchen feature. The application allows you to mix two emojis to create a new one. Creative Assistant seems like the natural continuation of this customization feature on Android. We can only rejoice at the arrival of a feature like this, promising more customization and representations.
