Meta has unveiled a new feature – a brand-new avatar option. Users can now make video calls on Instagram and Messenger using their Meta character.
Meta Video Avatar
Meta’s video call avatars will respond to your facial expressions, allowing you to interact with others using a cartoon version of yourself.
Meta said in their announcement: “Whether you’re Instagram famous, a casual doomscroller, or an adventurer about to head off on some daring VR exploits, your Meta Avatar lets you represent yourself seamlessly and hang out with others across the metaverse. More than a billion Meta Avatars have been created to-date, helping people express themselves in digital spaces in new ways. And today, we’re sharing some updates that make your avatar more fun, useful, and social than ever before.”.
It provides you with an additional connection option, while also serving an important role in aligning you with your Meta character.
Meta is also introducing animated avatar stickers in various features of Instagram, Facebook, and Messenger.
