You might think that Mark Zuckerberg renamed Facebook to Meta and did nothing to develop it. It’s not so. Meta is approaching its goal step by step. For instance, earlier this year, it introduced support for 3D Avatars on Instagram. Today, we learned that Meta’s customizable avatars are coming to WhatsApp. A couple of months ago, Meta introduced avatars on WhatsApp in the beta channel. Now, this feature is going to be available to all users.
How To Create Your Meta Avatar On WhatsApp?
In its recent blog post, WhatsApp showed how users could create their Meta avatars. You can use many hairstyles, facial features, and outfits. Once created, WhatsApp will create a custom sticker pack. Of course, they will vary from avatar to avatar. Every set will include 36 stickers for various emotions and actions. You can use the Meta avatar as your profile photo on WhatsApp. Plus, you can share the custom stickers with friends.
Note: If you want to use this feature, make sure your WhatsApp application has the latest version. If so, go to the new Avatar option in the app settings, and follow the instructions to create your custom avatar. As said, to make it a profile photo, you have to select the Profile photo option in the same menu. As for the new stickers, in the chat window, tap the Emoji button. Here you can select any new avatar sticker you want.

Though, at the moment, you can use only a few options when creating your Meta avatar, WhatsApp will add more options in the future. In this regard, WhatsApp said, “For many people this will be the first time creating an avatar, and we’ll continue to deliver style enhancements including lighting, hairstyle textures, and more that will make avatars even better over time.”
Lastly, if it is not available on your device yet, just keep waiting for a couple of days.
