WhatsApp: Animated avatars are reaching more users, with more sticker options

WhatsApp is expanding its offer of stickers with the introduction of animated avatars, similar to Snapchat’s popular Bitmoji feature. Since December last year, the app has been testing this feature, and in the latest beta version, the library of animated avatar stickers has been expanded.

According to the report published on the website of Android Police, animated avatars allow users to express themselves in a more dynamic and visually accurate waymaking them an attractive option for sending fun and expressive messages.

The current beta version includes at least 40 preconfigured stickers based on the user’s custom animated avatar. WABetaInfo shared some examples.

Advantages of WhatsApp avatars

One of the advantages of this function is that users in the beta version can send the animated avatar stickers to people who use the stable version of WhatsApp without problems. However, since the feature is still in development, the sticker collection may seem a bit limited.

The users of the app hope that WhatsApp will continue to improve and add more animated stickers in the future, since this feature can be a very fun and useful option to convey emotions and thoughts in conversations with friends, family, among others.

For now, the feature is in beta testing and is expected to roll out to more testers in the coming weeks. Hopefully, in the near future, it will be available to all users on the stable version of WhatsApp, thus providing a richer experience for all those who enjoy stickers and avatars in their daily conversations.
