Back in 2020, Meta (formerly called Facebook) introduced Bitmoji-like Avatars, which could use as stickers, profile pictures, and more on both Facebook and the Messenger app. These 3D Avatars recently got updated to include more elements to represent more communities and this update has now reached users across Facebook, Messenger, and even Instagram in India.
3D Avatars Now on Instagram Too!
You can now use the new 3D Avatars on Facebook, Messenger, and even Instagram as stickers, feed posts, and even profile pictures for Facebook. For the first time, Instagram Stories and DMs can also be used to send these Avatars to others.
You will also be able to send these Avatars as a GIF or a video Reel. Plus, these can be used as ways of commenting on someone’s posts apart from GIFs, stickers, emojis, and texts, of course!
The new changes include new hair colors, skin colors, accessories, more face shapes, expressions, more dressing options, body types, and more. You can also choose to add heading aids (single ear or both the ears), a wheelchair, Cochlear implants, and more to represent people with disabilities.
To recall, the updated 3D Avatars were recently introduced for these three Meta-owned platforms earlier this year but were limited to the US, Canada, and Mexico.
