Meta’s Avatars are not new but they keep finding a way to update and keep the users entertained with the latest updates. In an announcement, Meta announced the latest update to define the body types and hairstyles of your avatar in new ways.

“One billion avatars. Yesterday, we got to publicly announce and celebrate that incredible milestone. More than one billion avatars have been created across our technologies. That’s a billion times people have reimagined how they show up online — like showing up to meetings in a suit and tie while wearing pajamas in real life. Respect.

Today, we’re announcing some improvements to Meta Avatars that will help freshen up your look just in time for spring. We’re adding a handful of new avatar body shapes to help you better express yourself — especially if expressing yourself means dancing along to “Hips Don’t Lie.” We’ve also partnered with PUMA to bring seven outfits to the Meta Avatars Store.

And we’re continuing to make your avatar look better in smaller and subtler ways as well, because those details help your personality shine through. Literally shine, as we’re adding a bit more sparkle to your eyes, brushing some volume into your hair and making clothes look more realistic and textured. You’ll see these changes when you use your avatar outside of virtual reality (VR).” they announced in their blog.

PUMA’s New Looks

The Avatars Store, a one-stop shop for personalizing your avatar across Facebook, Messenger, Instagram, and VR, was released last year.

Textures of hair and clothing

In stickers, profile pictures, cover photos, and more, you can now customize your avatar’s hair, clothing, and eyes.

The hair and clothing have also received more detail and realism, so whether you’re sporting a tidy fade and a suit or a bedhead and sweats, your avatar should now stand out a little more than before. Excellent glow-up, no?

Watch for additional adjustments. This year, avatars will see a lot of updates, and we can’t wait to tell you more!
