Snapchat makes chatting more fun with a 3D avatar

In the past, avatars on Snapchat were only in 2D. From August 2021, Snapchat has integrated the avatar with Bitmoji 3D feature to help netizens show funny expressions and their personality on the application.

About Bitmoji 3D

The first launch of Bitmoji 3D was primarily for the Snapchatters over four years ago to install an animated and 3D version of Bitmoji into the chat app. Right now, this technology has been added to the avatar.

According to Snapchat, more than 280 million daily active users have a Bitmoji avatar associated with the account. Notably, Snap will use the term “guide to drawing the world” with a “3D experience” instead of AR (Augmented Reality).

Snap is adding popular filters as new ways for you to use your apps. So your profile will look more expressive.

For example:

  • The new 3D Bitmoji avatar provides 1,200+ facial expressions, poses, backgrounds, and gestures.
  • The “World Lenses” allows you to put unrealistic scenes with some 3D virtual objects by moving your hands around the camera on a mobile device.

In a simpler explanation, the 3D experience is an extension for you to take “personalized” photos. Snap enriches all your images with 3D augmented reality technology that combines the real and virtual world.

Revolution of Bitmoji 3D

We are in the era of the selfie but getting a perfect selfie takes a lot of work. Many of us have unsatisfied aspects in real life such as curly hair, thick eyebrows, big nose… You will not worry about this problem with the 3D avatar.

By adjusting the digital effect that enhances the drawing strokes, your cartoon avatar becomes cute and not offensive. Capture the perfect 3D avatar with just a few clicks!

Furthermore, 3D avatar can reflect who we are in society, both in terms of current cultural norms and our development in real life. Hugh Manon (Communications Director of Clark University) make clear about the cute aesthetic in media communication: “When you are setting up a 3D avatar, choosing hair color, face color, adding outfits one way and another, it is like you are recreating the original moments of childhood.”

Bitmoji 3D has attracted celebrities like Lena Dunham, Seth Rogen and Victoria Beckham. Putting a Bitmoji 3D avatar on social media means becoming trend leaders. In particular, Victoria Beckham is a fashion icon, she will fit this trend of creating unique avatar images.

Why is Bitmoji 3D identical to you?

The special drawing feature of Bitmoji 3D is strangely lovely to create a personalized emoji on the chat app. This is a subjective process, but the results are amazing.

First, the camera will create an avatar based on your facial details such as skin tone, hair color, hair length, mouth shape, eyes, nose, etc. A 3D version will then appear on your iPhone (or Android) screen. To keep moving towards the perfection of progress, you can edit the elements (anything you want to improve).

For your avatar to look like you, Bitmoji needs to complement with context. The Bitmoji library presents various options for different emotions like an artist. When an artist draws caricature sketches in the park (or at the Bat Mitzvah in the 90s), they are always asking for a hobby or something to know the essence/ appeal of the person. If you choose a black “single” shirt, the shirt becomes a reflection of your personality.
