Roblox has been consistently adding new features that level up the platform and this visual improvement was highly anticipated by fans. Now, players can have realistic facial expressions on Roblox via Dynamic Animated heads and yes, they will work with emotes. In the near future, they will also work with voice chat! Here’s how to get these facial animations on your Roblox Character.
How to Get Dynamic Animated Heads/Faces on Roblox Character (Facial Expressions)

What’s the Difference between Dynamic Heads and Static Heads?
In the Roblox Shop, the animated heads as now classified as “Heads”, whereas the original heads and faces are renamed “Classic Heads”. The original face has no animation and remains expressionless even during the body animation. But now, your Roblox games will be packed with much more liveliness than before!
