WhatsApp is releasing the ability to set up an avatar to some lucky beta testers on WhatsApp beta for Android!
An avatar is the best way to express yourself on WhatsApp: let’s configure an avatar so you can share personalized stickers with your friends.https://t.co/rISRcluygb pic.twitter.com/E5cBNqKEtF
The new feature was first reported by WABetaInfo and is reported to be compatible with WhatsApp beta for Android 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124. After you configure your Avatar, WhatsApp will create a new sticker pack that you can share with others on the platform. You can also choose an avatar as your profile photo on WhatsApp.
If you are using WhatsApp beta and have updated to one of the two compatible versions, you might have access to the avatar's functions. To find out, go to your WhatsApp settings and see if you find a new section called “Avatar.” If the section exists for you, the feature has been rolled out to your device, and you can start creating your avatar.
Of course, just because this feature is compatible with WhatsApp beta for Android 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52, it does not mean everyone will get the feature when they update those versions. So don’t worry, even if you don’t have access to it. More users will be able to configure an avatar over the next few weeks. Just make sure you are on the latest version of WhatsApp in the meanwhile.
