New Delhi: A brand-new animated avatar feature for WhatsApp users is anticipated to launch soon. According to a report, a new feature named “Animated Avatar Pack” will be added later in Android 184.108.40.206. This version is already available on the Google Play Store. The creation of this feature is presently ongoing. Notably, Instagram already has the animated avatar function.
The second enhancement, reportedly coming to WhatsApp, is a library of animated avatars. This feature will be available for individuals who have created an avatar on the platform.
Future updates to WhatsApp are anticipated to provide significant enhancements for both iOS and Android. According to the article, WhatsAPP will soon offer the option to set an avatar based on a photo. As a result, the process will be automatic, and you won’t need to manually select the avatar’s many features, such as its face shape, hairstyle, skin tone, and so on.
The report does not reveal any timeline of these rumoured features. The report states, “This update will bring a notable cosmetic enhancement to the app. Following the release of a redesigned keyboard and an updated GIF and sticker picker with the WhatsApp beta for Android 220.127.116.11 update, allowing users for improved navigation along with a larger new avatar collection, WhatsApp is now focusing on improving avatar quality by developing an animated version for a future update.”
Additionally, it is said that WhatsApp is developing a Phone number privacy feature that will let users decide whether or not they want their phone number to be accessible to other users in a community. They have the option to either turn the feature on or off. According to a report by WABetaInfo, this feature will have some restrictions. The phone numbers of all members, for instance, are always visible to community administrators regardless of whether this function is turned on or not.
