WhatsApp is rolling out avatars to users. Avatars will give you a new and personalized way to express yourself.
Your avatar is a digital version of you that can be created from billions 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.
For many people, this will be the first time creating an avatar, and WhatsApp will continue to deliver style enhancements, including lighting, shading, hairstyle textures, and more that will make avatars even better over time.
One can find Avatar in the Settings section of WhatsApp. Since this is gradual rollout, updating WhatsApp to the latest version will help.
