You may or may not have heard of Facebook’s Avatars, which is quite similar to Bitmoji and Apple’s Memoji.
The social network is finally releasing the new feature in Malaysia, months after it was launched in other parts of the world.
Facebook’s new addition lets you create and customise a digital character, which you can make to look like yourself. Once created, you can use it as stickers in Messenger, comments and stories on which you are able to share a range of emotions and reactions.
Avatars will allow users to customise their character depending on how they want to personify themselves and be perceived online. The customisation includes facial features, hair, outfits and more.
The avatar creator can be found in the Bookmarks section of the Facebook App, or through the comment composer inside the Facebook App. Just press the “smiley” button and navigate through the sticker tab. You’ll be prompted with an option to “Create Your Avatar”.
If you only have the Messenger App on your phone, don’t worry. You can head to the Facebook’s Messenger app on your phone and repeat the steps using the comment composer and voila!
Facebook’s Avatars is available now on both Android and iOS in Malaysia.
