Facebook Avatar app update – After creating a Facebook Avatar, the Facebook user will be able to use the Avatar in their Facebook comment section, stories, profile pictures, and messenger chats. Users are also allowed to export their Avatar’s to third-party apps like Snapchat, Twitter, and Instagram.
Facebook in 2019 introduced a new Avatar feature in its main app called the Facebook Avatar Maker. The entire feature is currently available in the U.S., Australia, New Zealand, Europe, and Canada.
The giant social network is yet to reveal when it will roll out the Avatar feature to other countries including India. The Facebook Avatar feature lets users create cartoonish characters similar to Snapchat bitmoji and Apple’s Memoji Avatar’s.
Facebook rolled out the feature to its users in the U.S., this year 2020 after launching it last year in other countries.
“With so many emotions and expressions to choose from, Facebook Avatars let you react and engage more authentically with family and friends across the app” – Fidji Simo, Facebook head of app stated.
