Mickey and Minnie Mouse AR Emoji for the Galaxy S9 now available

Inking a deal with Disney for the AR Emoji feature on the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ was a masterstroke by Samsung, given the long-running collaboration Apple has had with the creator of iconic characters such as Mickey Mouse, Cinderella, and Donald Duck. Samsung had announced that it would be bringing numerous Disney characters as emoji options to the Galaxy S9 and S9+, and the company has kicked things off with Mickey Mouse, the most famous and classic of them all, and his love interest Minnie Mouse to coincide with the general market release of its latest flagships.

Mickey and Minnie Mouse AR Emoji for the Galaxy S9 now available

Both characters can be downloaded from the AR Emoji mode on the Galaxy S9 camera by tapping the ‘+’ button, as seen in the screenshot below. The new emoji options may not be available for everyone at the moment, but they should show up in every market where the Galaxy S9 and S9+ have gone on sale, unless Samsung has had a few licensing roadblocks in some countries (which the company has made no mention of, so fingers crossed that’s not the case). More Disney characters will be arriving to AR Emoji later on over the course of the year, including those from more recent films such as The Incredibles, Zootopia, and Frozen (well, recent compared to Mickey Mouse).

While Samsung’s AR Emoji is a far cry from the Animoji feature on Apple’s iPhone X when it comes to actually making the characters look like you, the Disney emojis are only meant to emote like you, something that the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ do well enough. For those unaware, AR emojis can be saved and sent across to people as GIF images, making them compatible with every smartphone.

Once you’ve downloaded the Mickey and Minnie Mouse emojis, head over to this post to see how you can start using the feature and, as Samsung officially notes, “bring magic” to your messages. Also let us know if you see the option to download these emojis on your S9 or S9+ so others can know if they are available in their region at this time.
