Facebook just recently launched its Avatar feature in select countries last May, and it finally arrives in the Philippines!
This feature allows Facebook users to create a cartoon avatar of themselves, which can be used as emojis in comments, Facebook stories, and messenger.
Here’s how you can start enjoying this feature:
From the Messenger app
- Open the Messenger app on your Android or iOS device. Make sure your Messenger is already updated in its latest version via Google Play or App Store.
- Tap on the smiley icon in your textbox. From there, you’ll see an unfamiliar smiling purple icon. Tap on it and proceed to “Next” to “Get Started ” in creating your personalized avatar.
From Facebook app
- Go to the Facebook app on your iOS or Android phone. Tap on the three horizontal lines in the bottom-right of your screen, after your notification button.
- Scroll down and tap “See More.” Tap on “Avatars and finally tap “Next” to then “Get Started” to make an avatar of yourself.
