In India, Meta has released upgraded 3D avatars for Facebook and Messenger. New facial shapes and support equipment for those with disabilities have also been added by the corporation.
Meta is bringing redesigned 3D avatars to Facebook and Messenger, as well as Instagram Stories and DMs for the first time. People in India can now use stickers, feed updates, Facebook profile pictures, and other methods to represent themselves in apps. Avatars will also be available for the first time on Instagram.
Manish Chopra, Director and Head Partnerships, India at Meta said, “Representations in the metaverse should reflect the diversity of the real world. Avatars are just the first step toward enabling everyone to express themselves in their unique ways. When you create your avatar you can choose the right facial features, body types, clothing styles, and more to create your virtual self. We offered more than one quintillion different combinations when we launched our updated avatars last year, and we’re continuing to add more options to give people even more ways to express themselves.”
