About the style and appearance of avatars

You can create an avatar on WhatsApp to use as your profile photo or to send as stickers.
Over time, we’ll continually improve avatars by enhancing their style and appearance.
These updates mean you can create avatars with enhanced representation and expressivity.
They’ll include:
  • Customization options for faces and bodies.
  • Changes to lighting and shading.
  • Improved realism and detail.
  • Animation.
Note: Avatar style and design updates will apply automatically to avatar stickers, but not to your avatar profile photo. If you’d like them to apply to your avatar profile photo, you’ll need to edit your avatar and save it again.
