Sync Memoji to MacBook and Across all devices

Apple introduced a feature called Animoji in 2017, that used Face ID to map emojis character to your face. This feature was extended to Memoji in 2018 which was nothing more but personalized sticker/avatar or more of a robotized version of Animoji.

With the release of iOS 13, Apple enabled customization to personalize it even further with options like new skin colors, makeup, accessories, etc.
