Spoilers And Credits​

Credits To The Tamagotchi Fandom Wiki Since The Page Was Copied And Pasted Into This Thread. Because Of This, This Page Is Extremely Long.


Instead of moving around the screen like previous virtual pets, the Tamagotchi will always be positioned at the bottom right corner of the living room. Tapping the character will cause the character to come close to the screen, and bring up a menu of various options.

  • Pet: The user can pet the Tamagotchi by stroking the screen. Doing the wrong kind of petting motion such as twisting their face or poking them will make them upset.
  • Talk To: The user can say something to the Tamagotchi using the microphone. A microphone icon will appear on the top left of the screen in blue. Once the user speaks, if it detects the voice, the microphone will turn red, and the Tamagotchi will respond. The device does not understand what is being said, but what the character says depends on the time, season, and their bond with their owner.
  • Conversation: The Tamagotchi will ask a question and the user will be given answers to choose from. The Tamagotchi may then reference the answer later in another conversation or when talking to another Tamagotchi. They may also tell the user how they feel about their caretaking.
  • Current Mood: The user can ask how the Tamagotchi is feeling and how they respond is based off their bond with the user and how well their care is.
The petting option will also appear when the Tamagotchi wakes up and goes to bed, asking the user to pet it. All Tamagotchi characters in this toy wake up at 8AM but can be woken up by petting them starting from 7AM, unless they're sick.

Status/Setting Icon​

This icon is the first icon on the first page, on the top left corner, represented by a heart and a gear wheel. The icon has four different options.

  • Status: This option shows the Tamagotchi's Fondness meter, Hungry meter, and total number of Gotchi Points. Swiping down will show the user's name, an image of their current character, their name, and the amount of days the Tamagotchi has been raised.
    • Fondness is a new feature integrating both the Happy and Friendship meters into a single meter. Taking good care, winning games, playing with items, giving accessories to wear, petting and communicating with the Tamagotchi, and avoiding care mistakes will all increase the Fondness meter.
  • Memory: This option shows characters the user has previously raised.
    • Fondness Icons: These are special icons earned after taking care of an adult character for at least 72 hours and then reaching high happiness on the Fondness meter. The device can store up to 34 icons, which includes 10 slots for the main built-in adult characters, and 24 slots for characters downloaded via TamaSma cards. If the user earns a 25th icon of a DLC character, the device will automatically delete the first DLC character's fondness icon.
  • Settings: This selection has three different options:
    • Sound: The user can turn the sound on or off.
    • Battery Level: The current amount of battery charge available will be shown.
    • Clock: The user can adjust the date and time.
    • Brightness: The user can adjust the brightness level of the screen.
  • Friend Icon: The user can adjust the profile image and nickname that is exchanged when connecting to other devices. The icon's face and color can be changed, and the nickname is limited to two characters.

Help Icon​

This icon is the second icon on the first page, on the top right corner, represented by a house with a + symbol. The icon has three different options.

  • Medicine: This option administers medicine to cure the Tamagotchi of Sicknessand toothaches.
  • Caretaking: The user can leave the Tamagotchi with Smaspitchi from 7:00 AM to 5:59 PM. If the user does not return to care for their Tamagotchi by 6 PM, the Tamagotchi will become upset, and the Fondness meter will lower.
  • Smaspitchi: This option will summon Smaspitchi, who will tell about special events happening during the day, as well as if there are any special item deals. They can also give out general advice on taking care of the Tamagotchi.
If the Tamagotchi is about to die or run away, selecting this icon will save them, returning the Tamagotchi to normal.

Food Icon​

This icon is the third icon on the first page, on the bottom left corner, represented by a fork and knife. There are default foods that are always available, and additional food can be purchased from the app. Meals increase the Hungry meter, and Snacks increase the Happy meter.

Toilet/Bath Icon​

This icon is the fourth icon on the first page, on the bottom right corner, represented by a showerhead. Selecting this icon when the Tamagotchi has made a poo will summon a broom to clean the poo away. The user can also catch the Tamagotchi just before it does so and, using the icon, have them use a toilet instead of making a mess on the floor - doing so raises their Happy meter. The second option will make the Tamagotchi take a shower; the Tamagotchi will gradually become dirty over time (represented by dust particles around it), and it will not be allowed to leave the house until washed.

Inventory Icon​

This icon is the first icon on the second page, on the top left corner, represented by a wardrobe. The icon has three different options:

  • Toys: The user can give a toy to the Tamagotchi to play with. Some default toys are always available, while others must be purchased from the app. Some items, can always be used once purchased, while others are consumed upon use. When selecting an item, an indicator on the top left corner will show how many of that item the user has. Items now have a hidden "durability" variable, and will eventually break after several uses. Items can be bought from Tama Delivery or randomly gifted from a Shirotama visiting the outdoor patio.
    • Cleaning Robot: This item is always available in this menu. The cleaning robot will clean the living room, and must be used if the living room becomes dirty. Unlike other items, the Cleaning Robot will never break.
    • Default Toy: A toy will always be available in this toy menu, and will never break, regardless of how often it is used. It is a picture book when the Tamagotchi is a baby, and a ball from the child stage onward.
  • Accessories: The user can select accessories for the Tamagotchi to wear. The Tamagotchi can only wear one accessory at a time, and can only wear accessories from the child stage onward. When selecting an accessory, an indicator on the top left corner will show how many of that accessory the user has.
  • Treasures: Special rare items are stored in this option, which are only available for download at real-life events. Treasures have unique animations and will never break, no matter how often they are used. Up to four treasures can be stored on one device; if the user attempts to download a fifth, they will have to delete one of the others first.

App Icon​

This icon is the second icon on the second page, on the top left corner, represented by the word "App". This icon cannot be selected while the Tamagotchi is still a baby. There are four different options.

  • Tama Delivery: Meals and Snacks for the Tamagotchi can be purchased here. Food options change daily.
  • Tama Shopping: Toys, accessories, and new living rooms can be purchased here. Toy and accessory options change daily.
  • Tamatching App: Available once the Tamagotchi has become an adult, the Tamagotchi can date other characters until they find a partner to marry. The user will be given four possible partners to choose from and each has their own dating profile, which includes their name, hobby, and quote.
  • Tama Selfie: Pictures of the Tamagotchi can be taken and decorated with stamps, frames, and facial expressions. New frames and stamps can be earned from visiting the Park during seasonal events. Pictures are stored in an album, and the device can hold up to four photos. If a fifth photo is taken, the user will be requested to discard one of the previous four.

Go Outside Icon​

This icon is the third icon on the second page, on the bottom left corner, represented by an open door. This icon cannot be selected while the Tamagotchi is still a baby.
