Facebook has launched a new feature called avatars which is a cartoon-like representation of a user. You can create your own Avatar now from the messenger app from Facebook.
You can create your Avatar from a variety of faces, hairstyles, and outfits that have been especially customized for India, according to Facebook. “Avatars will allow you to create a digital persona that’s uniquely representative of you and will enable you to share a range of emotions and expressions in a fun and personalized way,” Facebook said in a statement.
You can post avatars in Facebook comments, stories, profile pictures, and Facebook Messenger chat windows and can even share it on WhatsApp chats.
The Avatar creator is available in bookmarks in the Facebook app, as well as in the comment composer. Alternatively, you can create avatars from someone else’s avatar shared across Facebook. The Avatar creator is already available on Android devices and will later be made available to iOS.
To create an avatar of your own, from your device, go to the comment composer section. Click on the Smiley button in the comment section, tap on the Sticker tab and then click on Create your Avatar.
