This year, Meta has already brought support for 3D Avatars to Instagram, and now it is extending its customisable avatars to WhatsApp. Avatars were initially released by the firm on WhatsApp’s beta channel in the month of October, and the functionality is currently being made available to all users.

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.

The deployment was mentioned in a recent article on WhatsApp’s blog, in which the company highlighted the fact that users will be able to build personalized avatars by selecting from a number of hairstyles, facial features, and clothes. When you design your own unique avatar in WhatsApp, the messaging service will immediately generate a bundle of 36 stickers based on the character, each of which will represent a different feeling or activity. After that, you’ll have the option to either share the newly made unique stickers with your friends or use your avatar as the profile photo for the app.

After upgrading to the most recent version of WhatsApp, open the app’s settings and look for the new Avatar option. From there, you may design an avatar that is unique to you. When you are finished, you may use your newly created avatar as your profile photo by choosing the option labeled “Profile photo” from the same menu. To utilize the stickers in your own personal sticker pack, open a chat, hit the Emoji button, and then choose the option for using your new avatar sticker pack from the toolbar at the bottom of the screen.

You can customize your avatar by giving it a unique look by selecting a unique hairdo, facial feature, and dress from a wide variety of options. On the other hand, the messenger has future plans to expand support for a wider variety of options.
