WhatsApp rolls out ‘Avatar’ feature widely

After beta testing earlier this July, WhatsApp has announced the roll-out of avatars to its app, a new and personalized way to express yourself. Your avatar is a digital representation of yourself that may be made from countless combinations of various facial characteristics, hairstyles, and clothing, according to the company.

WhatsApp says that users can now use their customized avatar as their profile photo or pick from one of 36 customized stickers that represent a wide range of feelings and behavior’s.

The meta-owned firm mentions that sending an avatar to friends and family is a quick and enjoyable way to express emotions. It can also be a terrific method to represent oneself so that it feels more private without using your actual photo.
