Snapchat is becoming even more creative with emojis, now creating a moveable emoji feature on the platform.

When users record a video, emojis can now be attached to a moving object instead of staying stagnant.

To use this new feature, users just record a video, tap the sticker button at the top-right corner of the screen, and long-press the emoji onto an object. The emoji can then move, rotate, and scale in tandem with whatever object they have been placed upon. 

This new augmented reality feature has been rolled out on Android and will be available for iOS users in the near future.

This is expected to be a highly popular new feature, with Snapchat taking the lead in its development of a video app.
