WhatsApp is receiving Bitmoji-style avatars from Facebook
After appearing on Instagram and Messenger, Facebook’s Bitmoji-style avatars are now making their way to Whatsapp. According to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp is adding support for customizable avatars in the current 184.108.40.206 beta for Android, but only for a subset of users.
Those who have access to the functionality will see a new “Avatar” category in their settings menu, which they may use to personalize their digital self. WhatsApp will then build a sticker pack with the avatar in different positions, much like Meta’s other products, which users can use to express themselves while texting family and friends.
