FaceMojis or later known as Alter, will create an opportunity for game developers to improve their avatar systems.
Google recently acquired Alter, a startup that offers developers AI avatar technology. Now you can make your own virtual assistant! The tech stack is open-source and free for anyone to use.
According to TechCrunch, the company has been renamed as FaceMojis and has raised $3 million in funding from a seed round, led by Play Ventures with participation from Twitter and Roosh Ventures.
After Apple created Memoji, Alter was inspired to offer game developers a chance to build avatar systems without plugging in to different networks.

With software development kits, the startup offered a real-time 3D avatar system with facial motion capture capabilities and customizable options, like those you see on apps such as TikTok.
Google has announced that it has bought a Chinese-based social platform and will be “doing more with some of the recent high-profile content there.”
