WhatsApp is working on setting up avatar profile photo
Avatars are a new way to be you on WhatsApp, available in a future update of WhatsApp beta for Android, iOS, and Desktop. Today, we want to share some more details with you about customizing an avatar to use as a profile photo on WhatsApp.
As per the WaBetaInfo, you will be able to use an avatar as a mask while placing video calls in a very distant future and as a sticker to share with your friends. But there is an additional feature that avatars will offer to users: the ability to set up an avatar to use as a profile photo!
As you can see in this screenshot, you will be able to choose the perfect avatar for you by customizing it. In addition, you will also be able to choose a background color to use within the profile photo. Note that, even if the screenshot is taken from WhatsApp beta for Android, the ability to set up the avatar profile photo will also be available on WhatsApp beta for iOS and Desktop beta.
Unfortunately, we don’t know when this feature will be released since it is under development. It will probably be rolled out to users in the very distant future since it is in an early stage of development.
