WhatsApp is developing a virtual representation of themselves, similar to the Facebook and Messenger apps, that might be available in a future update.
WhatsApp might include a dedicated section for avatars on its platform in a future update, according to a report by WABetainfo. The feature was first identified in the Android beta version 22.214.171.124, which is now available on the Google Play beta program. Users may then customize their avatars and attach them to their WhatsApp contacts.
WhatsApp's beta version 126.96.36.199 for Android is said to have first identified the avatars. The feature may also be used during video calls, according to reports. WhatsApp is yet to announce the feature officially, which is said to be under development. Hence, there is currently no information regarding the feature's launch date.
A screenshot of the alleged avatar section on WhatsApp was also shared. It showed a number of possible avatars users might be able to create. Below the image, there is also a option to create your avatar. On the platform, avatars are said to be taken from Facebook, which is another subsidiary of Meta.
According to a recent report, WhatsApp is also working on making quick status updates available on the Android app. The feature was reported to be included in the WhatsApp beta version 188.8.131.52 for Android. The company is also said to be developing an updated gallery view for the Windows desktop WhatsApp apps beta version.
