WhatsApp avatars are now officially available to use! Know how to add your digital avatar as WhatsApp profile picture.
Your digital avatar can finally be uploaded as a WhatsApp profile picture! Initially released for Facebook, Messenger and Instagram, Meta’s 3D Avatars, which allow you to create and customize an avatar that looks just like you, are now available on your WhatsApp instant messaging app. The WhatsApp avatar has been a part of various leaks and rumors in recent months, but WhatsApp by Meta has officially released it now.
WhatsApp says in a blog post: “Your avatar is a digital version of you that can be created from billions of combinations of various hairstyles, facial features, and outfits.” He further added: “Sending an avatar is a quick and fun way to share feelings with friends and family. It can also be a great way to represent yourself without using your actual photo so you feel more private.”
You can now use these 3D virtual images of yourself on WhatsApp as your profile picture, as well as choose one of 36 custom stickers that reflect many different emotions and actions within the app. WhatsApp further announced that those trying these avatars for the first time will be able to get style enhancements including lighting, shading, hairstyle textures, and more over time.
