If you’ve been following Microsoft over the past few days, you probably know all about the Windows 10 Creators Update and its upcoming features. Of course, the main focus of the updates is the addition of 3D support to Windows 10, allowing users to create their own 3D objects and combine them with real-life content.

We’ve already covered the most important 3D innovations for Windows 10 including Paint 3D, 3D for Office, 3D in Edge, and more. But, let’s now take a look at some additional options that will be available to users from April 2017.

An innovation that will definitely draw attention will be the ability to create your own custom emoji in Paint 3D. All you need to do is to load an emoji in Paint 3D and add whatever you want to it. You can add accessories already in the gallery, like sunglasses or mustaches, and you can also use your pen to draw on it.

Once you’re done with your brand new emoji, you can share it on various social media as well as on Microsoft’s new community for 3D creators, Remix 3D.

Emoji are one of the most important parts of digital communication. At this point, some of your friends might think something’s wrong with you if you don’t use emoji. Since emoji have become projections of our feelings, it is important to give them our personal touch. And that’s exactly what Microsoft aims to do with this feature.

Unfortunately, your custom emoji won’t be available to use from the keyboard. So for now, you can’t use them in actual communication. However, your own emoji can be a nice touch to your photographs, especially when you want to express your feelings about a certain photo.
