The new screenshot gives us a little more information about these avatars. In this new exclusive screen for avatar settings we can create our avatar from WhatsApp, presumably with a wizard similar to the one we have on Instagram or Facebook. In fact, the accompanying illustration image is the same as the one Meta has used in Facebook avatars.
This screen includes the text “a new way to be you on WhatsApp”, and apparently you can also use your avatar as stickers. Again, similar to what you can already do on Facebook or Instagram with your avatars created on these social networks. According to WaBetaInfo, we will see WhatsApp avatars on all platforms at any time, but we still don’t know exactly when.
