After a steady stream of new features on WhatsApp, the messaging service has started rolling out the avatar feature to some beta testers as well. In fact, WABetaInfo has received information that WhatsApp has released a new version 188.8.131.52 to the Google Beta Program. It has been said that WhatsApp had earlier released the iOS beta for iOS 22.23. For that it has been re-introduced.
WABetaInfo has also shared a screenshot about it, in which its look can be seen. It looks similar to the Facebook avatar.
WB informed that users who want to use it on WhatsApp can check if they have got this feature or not. For this they have to go to WhatsApp account and go to settings. If you don’t see this feature here, you have to wait for the next update.
After setting an avatar, users can also present it as a sticker in chatting by going to the avatar page in the chat keyboard.
Apart from this, an avatar can also be set on the profile photo. It is being said that this feature is only available to some beta testers at the moment, and it may be rolled out in the coming weeks.
This feature is also in beta version…
Apart from this, WhatsApp is all set to bring one more new feature, through which users will be able to send messages to themselves. This information was obtained by WABetaInfo. WB claims that a feature called ‘Message Yourself’ is coming in Android beta version 184.108.40.206. Under this feature, WhatsApp users will be able to see their name as ‘me’ in the chat section.
