In the following way you can create your own avatar for WhatsApp or for any other app or social network such as Facebook, Twitter, Telegram, Instagram or even in multiplayer games.
As in most apps of this type, the first step will be to take a selfie to generate the avatar. However, it will be possible to modify the facial features at any time before saving the image.
The app available on Google Play ZEPETO developed by Naver Z Corporation, offers the possibility of exporting a personalized emoji package that can later be used to send the emoticons through applications such as WhatsApp. It is also possible to personalize a photo with our avatar to put it on a profile on social networks or messaging applications.
Apart from the ZEPETO application, there is Gboard, Google’s keyboard app, which also offers the possibility of generating personalized emojis based on our facial features. Unlike ZEPETO, the generated emojis are based on Bitmoji, so they have a more cartoonish look, and not as “realistic” as in the case of ZEPETO or Apple’s Memojis.
To create our “Memojis” in Gboard, it’s only necessary to display the keyboard in any application, and access the emoji menu through a long press on the “,” key. From there, we will see the “Minis” option, and when we click on it the app will ask us to upload a selfie that will be used to generate the emoji pack.
