WhatsApp has launched avatars, allowing users to create a digital version of themselves to use on the messaging app.
Similar to Apple’s Memoji, an avatar is a digital version of you that can be created from a variety of combinations of diverse hairstyles, facial features, and outfits.
On WhatsApp you can now use your personalized avatar as your profile photo or choose from one of 36 custom stickers reflecting many different emotions and actions.
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.
This feature is available on the latest version of WhatsApp for both Android and iOS users.
