  1. Head over to Snap Maps by tapping on the map icon in the bottom toolbar.
  2. Tap on your Bitmoji avatar next to the search icon.
  3. Then go to My pet and here select Choose your own pet!.
  4. Now select an image from your gallery. The app will try to recognize it and turn it into an avatar.

This method doesn’t work at all times, as it has trouble recognizing the object in the photo. But if you have a clear image of your pet, then that should help with better results.

Having a cute friend by your side is always the best feeling in the world, and now you can even take them inside the app. This is also a clever way to let others know about your pet whom you have recently added on the app. It can even work as a good conversation starter.
