BFF Bitmoji Stickers Can Be Used Outside Snapchat on iOS
The new Snapchat Bitmoji update for iOS is bringing the ability to use your BFF Bitmoji stickers outside of the Snapchat app. This means that the Friendmoji feature can be used within other apps such as iMessage, and that is great news. What is really interesting is that this is the first time that you will be able to go outside of Snapchat and really get to use the BFF Bitmoji stickers. If you had Snapchat on your iOS device already, then you know you were limited to using these stickers within the Snapchat app itself. It definitely made things difficult since there are plenty of other apps where these stickers could have been useful.
If you have not heard of the BFF Bitmoji stickers before, they are stickers of you and a friend. These BFF Bitmoji stickers are customized and are useful in a ton of social apps. There is only one thing you need to do in order to use the new BFF Bitmoji stickers outside of the Snapchat app. That would be to link your Snapchat account with your Bitmoji keyboard. The update is rolling out right now to the Snapchat Bitmoji app, which is free to download on iOS if you do not have it already.
How to Tell if You Have the New BFF Bitmoji Stickers Outside of Snapchat
If you are wondering how to tell whether or not you have this new update, it is very easy to figure out. Simply just go into the Bitmoji keyboard and look in the top right-hand corner of the screen. If you have the update, you will see the two smiley faces at the top. Once the update has hit your device, you can either search for your contacts or choose from the most recent friends. If you commonly use iMessages for your communication needs on iOS, you will love how quickly and easily you can use the stickers.
It takes no time at all to either search for the contacts or simply choose from your most recent friends. You will find that the person you most recently have talked to will be at the top of the results, but it is easy to scroll through to find other friends. Once you have downloaded the new Bitmoji keyboard app update for iOS, this feature should be immediately available. The update is still rolling out to those with the app already installed, but it should make it to everyone by the end of the week.
