The iPhone X may have a fancy new OLED screen, a juiced-up camera, and no home button, but there’s only one feature anyone cares about right now: Animojis.

Using its facial recognition technology, Apple’s new smartphone can create videos of emojis that mimic the user’s facial expressions. Designed for sending cute videos and images, iPhone X owners have already found an alternate use for them – lipsyncing to music.

Say hello to Animoji Karaoke.

People have shared videos of everything from AC/DC’s “TNT” to Daddy Yankee’s “Gasolina,” using the feature to record them singing along for comedic effect.

The concept really comes into its own when a song has multiple singers – like Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody.”

Inventive iPhone owners are sharing some of their best creations on Twitter using the hashtag #AnimojiKaraoke.

Fast Company reporter Harry McCracken, who invented Animoji Karaoke, recommends would-be lipsyncers record their screen using the iOS 11 feature – getting you past the normal 10-second limit on Animoji videos.
