An animated avatar feature is now available on the iOS beta version of WhatsApp, which is owned by Meta. To see if the functionality is available for their account, users must open the keyboard and choose the avatar tab, according to WABetainfo. Then, some avatar animations will be visible to beta users.
It is not necessary to utilize the beta version in order to acquire the animated avatars, so users are free to share them with anyone. Additionally, just a small percentage of stickers are animated, but over time, the article predicted, WhatsApp would offer an animated version of the whole avatar pack.
It is anticipated that the animated avatars will give stickers more character and vitality, improving communication. The animated avatar feature will be made available to more users over the next few days. Currently, some beta testers who install the most recent version of WhatsApp beta for iOS through the TestFlight app can access it.
The messaging platform broadly launched the option to stop incoming calls from unknown numbers and support for landscape orientation for video conversations on iOS last month. Additionally, the platform made it possible to natively transfer the whole account history when transferring to a new device.
A greater collection of stickers, featuring additional Avatars, and a newly styled sticker tray with better navigation have also been released. Additionally, it was mentioned that the business had made a feature available in the iOS beta that enables customers to send high-definition films.
Although the video dimensions are preserved by this function, a small amount of compression will still be done to the video; transferring videos at their original quality is therefore not possible. Users must always choose the high-quality option in order to send films with better quality because the default setting for all videos is always “Standard quality.”
