Snapchat has "taken sticker creativity to the next level" with the addition of movable emojis to its popular platform.

Now, emojis in videos don’t have to stay stagnant. Users now have the option to post emoji stickers on objects, and the emojis will move, rotate, and scale in tandem with whatever objects they have been placed upon.

For example, Snapchat users can post a cat head sticker on the face of a kitten in a video, and the emoji will adjust accordingly as the kitten moves along. Or, like in the above example from Snapchat, a surfer emoji can mimic the movements of a real-life surfer.

To use them, 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, according to TechCrunch.

The update is now available for Android users and will come to iOS “very shortly,” according to Snapchat.
