After introducing avatars on Facebook and Instagram, Meta has now released them on WhatsApp. Users can create personalized digital versions of themselves to better express themselves in chats with family and friends. The new feature is rolled out to all users worldwide.
In October, WABetaInfo reported that WhatsApp beta included avatars which were personal emojis that could be sent as stickers in conversations for users to express themselves.
WhatsApp avatars offer a new way to have fun and safe conversations
WhatsApp avatars are just like Snapchat Bitmoji and iOS Memoji but they include full-length avatars to show off OOTD. Users can choose the skin tone, hair, clothing, and accessories of the character to represent their personality in a fun and private way.
Users can use their avatars as their profile photos and choose one of 36 custom stickers to express their moods, thoughts, reactions, and feelings in chats.
Your avatar is a digital version of you that can be created from billions of combinations of diverse hair styles, facial features, and outfits.
Sending an avatar is a fast and fun way to share feelings with friends and family. It can also be a great way to represent yourself without using your real photo so it feels more private.
Recently, WhatsApp released a new “Message Yourself” feature for users to have private chats with themselves. With the ability to start and pin a chat with themselves, users can send themselves to-do lists, save articles, share links to view later, and much more.
