Reportedly, you will be able to create your avatar from the sticker tray in the comment section of a post on a news feed or in a chat in Facebook Messenger. Unfortunately, many consider Facebook’s stickers to be late to the party as Snapchat popularized a similar option in 2016, buying the company that created Bitmoji and integrating the feature directly into the app. Popular social-media platform is now also designed Bitmoji TV where users are playing the main characters in a custom-made Bitmoji comedy cartoon.
Additionally, at the time of the release of Bitmoji TV, Snapchat stated that 147 million of its 210 million users had created their own Bitmojis.
