How to Create Your Own Avatar on WhatsApp

WhatsApp has recently launched a new feature that allows users to create their own digital avatars. The WhatsApp Avatar feature is a welcome addition for users who want more customization options for their profile picture beyond just taking a photo or selecting one from their phone’s gallery.

How to create a WhatsApp avatar

To create your own WhatsApp avatar, simply follow these steps:

  1. Update your WhatsApp to the latest version on Google Play Store (Android) or App Store (iOS).
  2. Open WhatsApp and tap the three dots at the top-right corner.
  3. Select “Settings” to open the Settings menu.
  4. Select “Avatar” (create, edit profile photo).
  5. You will see the option, “create your avatar.” Click on it to get started.
  6. Now start creating your WhatsApp Avatar.

Customization options

Once you’ve selected the “Create Avatar” option, you will be presented with a wide range of customization options. You can choose your avatar’s skin colour, eye colour, eye shape, face shape, outfit, hair style, body shape, and even piercings. There are also a variety of cultural outfits that you can choose from to better represent yourself.

Custom stickers

In addition to creating your avatar, WhatsApp will also automatically create custom stickers for you to use. There will be 36 different stickers to choose from, allowing you to express yourself in a fun and unique way. You can use these stickers in chats and as your profile picture.

Similar to other features

The avatar creation feature on WhatsApp is similar to Apple’s Memoji and Samsung’s AR-based emoji feature. If you’re familiar with these features, then the avatar creation tool on WhatsApp should be easy to use.
