An avatar on WhatsApp is a digital expression that represents you, released to everyone on WhatsApp for iOS and Android two months ago. It is possible to customize the avatar right within the app settings by choosing the shape, color, clothes, and several accessories that best express you. Once you have created your avatar, you can use it as your profile photo, and a set of stickers is automatically generated, so you can share them within your chats and groups. Thanks to a recent server side update, it is now possible to share new stickers from the updated avatar pack:
As you can see in this screenshot, while the number of stickers available in the avatar pack remains the same, the changes made have added more depth and personality by redesigning and replacing some stickers to enhance their visual appeal and ensure that they reflect the diverse range of emotions and expressions that users wish to convey. In our opinion, the changes also reflect the dedication of WhatsApp to improving the user experience with the feature.
Note that, if you don’t have those new stickers, please try updating your avatar within the app settings: in this case, the application generates the latest version available for the avatar sticker pack so this is the best way to include new avatar stickers within the pack. Keeping your avatar updated is the best way to ensure that you have access to the latest selection of avatar stickers available.
New stickers within the avatar pack are available for all users on WhatsApp for iOS and Android today. Be sure to update your version of WhatsApp from the Play Store, App Store, and TestFlight, and update your avatar again in order to get the revamped avatar pack.
