Now you can create a Memoji to match your personality and mood.

iOS 12.1 is going to be a significant update.

Automatic detection of active speakers: FaceTime uses on-device intelligence to display the most prominent speakers on the call, automatically highlighting the current speaker by bringing them to the forefront. The size of the person's image then changes depending on how active they are being on the call. "A simple tap also brings a participant front and centre", Apple added.

First and foremost, iOS 12.1 will finally bring Group FaceTime to the iPhone.
