WhatsApp Avatar is set to arrive soon. (Pixabay)

WhatsApp avatar has been part of several leaks and rumours over the last couple of months. The WhatsApp's updates tracker WabetaInfo had signaled the arrival of these emoji-inspired animated Avatars on WhatsApp earlier. In the past, Avatars have been reported to be an important part of a Meta-owned messaging app to represent yourself in a certain way in the future. It was also said to be used as a mask during video calls in the very distant future. Now, in the latest development, WabetaInfo suggested that the Avatar feature is under development to make it a sticker in the near future.

For those who are unaware of this exciting new feature, Meta has already introduced 3D Avatars for Facebook, Messenger, and Instagram, which allows you to create and customize an avatar that resembles you. Now, these 3D virtual images of yourself will soon make their appearance on your messaging app. You will get the option to customize the hair, skin colour, eyes, outfits, accessories, and more to create a perfect digital avatar of yourself. Moreover, the WABetaInfo report suggests that WhatsApp will enable a feature that will turn your 3D virtual creatures into stickers.
