Meta-owned WhatsApp introduced Apple Memoji-like feature, Avatars, on WhatsApp in December last year. Avatars are customisable characters that can be used as profile pictures and sent to friends and family to connect in a fun way. The feature was already available on Android and now iPhone users can also create their WhatsApp Avatars.
Avatars available on iOS
WhatsApp Avatars feature is now available on iOS. You can create an Avatar – a digital version of you – by choosing the right combination of available hair styles, facial features and outfits. “On WhatsApp you can now use your personalised Avatar as your profile photo or choose from one of 36 custom stickers reflecting many different emotions and actions. The feature is similar to Snapchat’s Bitmoji and Memoji from Apple.
