After releasing the ability to drag and drop media from other apps and a feature that lets users search messages by date in the previous WhatsApp for iOS 23.1.75 update, there is something else new in the latest update. A few hours ago, the company has released the WhatsApp for iOS 23.2.75 update on the App Store, and we discovered from the official changelog that it is finally possible to create an avatar as this feature has been widely rolled out to everyone on the stable release of the app!
As mentioned in the official changelog, it is now possible to create personalized avatars and use them as stickers and profile photos. Some users may already be able to configure an avatar on the previous update, but it is rolling out to even more people today. You need to open WhatsApp Settings in order to discover if the feature is already enabled for your account. Once you’ve set up your avatar, you’ll be able to send stickers from a new sticker pack generated by WhatsApp by opening the sticker keyboard. In addition, you can set up your avatar as your profile photo: this is an additional way to express yourself.
Note that some accounts may receive the new feature over the coming weeks, as noted in the official changelog. Stay ahead by regularly updating WhatsApp from the App Store and the TestFlight app in order to get the feature in the future in case you don’t have it after installing this update.
The ability to create personalized avatars to use as stickers and profile photos is finally available for more iOS users so be sure to update the app from the App Store to check if the feature is already enabled for your WhatsApp account.
