We have news related to WhatsApp, since in its beta version for the Android platform, it was discovered that the company is planning to introduce avatars.
This is the beta version for Android, specifically version 22.214.171.124 where these avatars that somehow seek to be you on WhatsApp are being tested.
Thanks to them, it will be possible for you to use an avatar as a mask when you are making a video call, and you will also be able to use them as your own stickers to share them with your contacts.
As you can see in the image above, you can see what the design of the avatars would be like, which would apparently be the same as what we can currently see on Facebook.
In that section it is expected that one can fully customize their own avatar. However, all of this is in the process of development, not knowing at the moment when they will be available in the final version of WhatsApp.
