How to Create 3D Avatars on Instagram Stories and Direct Messages
Meta has recently unveiled new 3D avatars for Messenger and Facebook with more details than previous versions. Avatars are also available for the first time on Instagram (Stories and Direct Messages). This feature, for the time being, will initially be accessible to users in three countries (the United States, Canada, and Mexico).
In this tutorial, I am going to explain to you how you can create your own 3D Avatars on Instagram. The best part is that you can also use this avatar in Messenger chats as well as in Instagram Direct Messages and IG Stories.
During the last year, it was possible to use more expressive and customizable 3D avatars in the virtual worlds of Oculus Rift. Now, these avatars are also available on Facebook, Messenger, and for the first time on Instagram via apps, stickers, posts, messages, stories, and images of the profile. These new avatars are therefore multi-platform.
Here are the steps to create 3D Avatars on Instagram Stories and DMs:
- First of all, you need to open the Instagram app on your Android or iOS device.
