Facebook has launched its new avatar feature known as Facebook Avatar. Using this feature, you can create a cartoon character that looks just like you. Facebook allows you to make use of your avatar as a sticker in your FB Messenger, comment, and Stories. After creating an avatar which resembles you, you can replace it with your present profile picture. In spaces where texts are needed, you can replace texts with avatars. Once you’ve created your avatar, it becomes valuable for communication since you can send it as stickers on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and mail. At the moment, the Facebook avatar feature isn’t available in all countries. Just Facebook users in the USA, UK, and New Zealand can access it. You will also need the upgraded Facebook mobile app version on your device.
Make sure you update your Facebook mobile app on your Android or iOS. You can do this by visiting your Google Playstore and Apple App Store. You don’t need to sign up for a new Facebook account. Just login in your old account using your sign in details. It is important you understand that this feature doesn’t in any way have a stand-alone app you can download on your App Store. It is a feature on the Facebook app only. People are still wondering if they can access it on the Facebook desktop version
