How to create a Memoji on macOS Big Sur? When we first met the Memoji they were unique to the iPhone X. The grace of the Memoji was its ability to interact according to our movements, something that required the TrueDepth system that brings Face ID to life. A little later, with the arrival of the Memoji Stickers, the creation, edition, and use of the Memoji have been reaching all devices. With Big Sur MacOS it is possible to create them on the Mac.

The Memoji on the Mac, lacking Face ID (at least for now), comes in the form of Memoji Stickers, i.e those mini images of our Memoji making several expressions that we can send through the app Messages. The steps are really easy:

  1. We open the Messages app on our Mac.
  2. We touch the A button on the left side of the text box.
  3. Choose Memoji Stickers.
  4. If we want to edit an existing one we select it and touch the three dots then we tap on Edit. If we want to create a new one we touch the three dots and choose New Memoji.

Here we can start with the customization. The process is very simple and the same as we already know from our iPhone or iPad. In the left bar we find the different features -for example skin, hairstyle, eyebrows, eyes, head, glasses, etc.- and in the right part the different variants. At the top of each section, we find several colors that we can choose.
