With tools like Apple’s Memoji and Snapchat’s Bitmoji, you’re missing out if you don’t have an animated version of yourself on your phone.

Google is making that process easier on its iOS and Android keyboard extension, Gboard, with the addition of “Minis.” The feature will let you convert your selfies into stickers that are based on your likeness.

As per Engadget, the feature uses a combination of machine learning, neural networks, and artist illustrations to come up with cartoon emoji. 

At the moment, there are about 100 sticker styles in two different “Minis” packs, which include the glittery-eyed “Sweet” and its slightly angrier counterpart, “Bold.” 

You can further customize these stickers by changing the face shape or hairstyle, or adding a hat, among a litany of other options. 

Once ready, they’ll sit as a shortcut in the sticker section of Gboard, ready to be spammed to various loved ones.

“Minis” have a similar function to the “selfie stickers” on Allo, an app that Google essentially killed.
