Snapchat just upgraded the emoji in its iOS app in a big way.

The company updated its iOS app Tuesday with its new 3D stickers feature, which allows you to pin emoji to a specific part of a video. The update follows a similar update to Snapchat’s Android app last week.

Previously, emoji that were overlaid onto videos were fixed in place within the frame. But with the latest update, users can pin emoji to a specific part of the video. The stickers will move and scale automatically based on the video.

The new emoji features work with emoji that are added from the emoji menu at the top of the app. (Emoji added in the text field will continue to work as they always have.)

In addition to the dynamic emoji, Tuesday’s update added another feature that will be welcome news to many of Snapchat’s younger users: lens support for older iOS devices. That’s right, Snapchat’s lenses will now work on more devices, including the iPhone 4S, 5th generation iPod Touch and second generation iPad, according to Snapchat’s support page
