WhatsApp is Developing Avatars for Video Calls- Here’s What We Know

The world’s most popular mobile messaging app, WhatsApp, has plans to incorporate avatars into video calls on its platform, reports Bloomberg .

This feature would allow users to create an avatar of themselves and use it during video calls with friends or family members.

WhatsApp hopes that avatars will make video calling feel more like texting or Facetime, which uses animated emoji in place of avatars.

Here’s what we know about WhatsApp’s new feature so far.

A brief history of digital communication

When WhatsApp first hit smartphones in 2009, it was marketed as a simple communication platform that allowed users to send text messages over WiFi or cellular data.

Now, more than 100 million people use WhatsApp to connect with friends and family members around the world.

The app has revolutionized how many of us communicate digitally and become an integral part of our daily lives.

The rise of mobile phones

It’s hard to imagine a world without smartphones, but there was a time before everyone had one in their pocket.

The industry of mobile technology smartphones, tablets, and everything else in between has only been around since 1997.

That’s when Nokia released its first mobile phone that wasn’t made from brick-like materials.

Mobile messaging platforms

One of these messaging platforms, WhatsApp, has announced that it will be launching avatars that can be used in place of live video calls.

This means that users will now have more ways to express themselves while maintaining their privacy, as well as enjoy a high quality experience through WhatsApp’s end-to-end encryption.

WhatsApp Business

Launched in 2016, WhatsApp Business currently has more than 1 million active users.

On February 22, 2018, Whatsapp rolled out a new update that allowed small businesses to use WhatsApp Business as their sole means of communication with customers.

While some business owners may be wary of switching to WhatsApp entirely, it could potentially save them money and help create a more direct line of communication with their clients.

This update will allow businesses to receive and respond to messages quickly and easily on any device.

Whatsapp Lite

Messenger Lite is a version of Messenger built from scratch to work reliably even on lower bandwidth connections.

While Messenger was taking too long to download, many users were getting frustrated and shifting to other apps like Facebook Lite.

In order to compete with Snapchat and Instagram, Whatsapp lite was created so that Whatsapp could keep up with their competitors by having a version of their app that also supports more traditional users who have slower internet connections.
