In-app avatars

In addition to the secret mode option, the messenger recently launched a feature that allows avatars to be used as a profile picture. In addition to this feature, the app also allows users to send stickers with their avatar’s face when chatting with contacts.

WhatsApp launches several options for different groups so that the user can customize their profile picture the way they want, such as hair, facial features, clothes, and even accessories. That is, these models are similar to those of Facebook and Instagram, but Meta has not yet reported whether there will be some kind of integration between all applications.

According to the information from the app, several changes are still to be made over time to improve the style of the characters, such as adding lighting, hair textures, and shading. That’s because this feature is still being tested, as well as creating stickers with the avatar’s face. Here’s how to create yours:

  • access your application;
  • Already on the main screen, tap the icon for more options (?) or “Settings”, in the case of iPhone users;
  • Next, click on “avatar”.
  • Next, click on the “Create Avatar” option;
  • After that, you just need to select the available options for creating your own avatar and start using it in the messenger.

This feature was created to help users better communicate within the app, as it can be used in conversations and as a profile picture. If the user wants to delete their avatar, just open the screen again and click on the “Delete Avatar” option.
