Published

Snapchat announced earlier this week a new way to customize your personal character with 1.9 septillion different options through Bitmoji Deluxe.

The updated software allows for users to snap a photo of themselves that shows while they customize their avatar. Users can now choose from over 100 different hair, hair treatment and skin colors.

And yes, you can even change your eyebrows!

Bitmoji Deluxe allows the user to take a selfie of themselves to do a side-by-side comparision of how they want their Bitmoji too look. It is also eliminating the need for only heteronormative avatar, allowing the user to feel comfortable using both feminine and masculine qualities to create their Bitmoji.

Snapchat bought the Bitmoji program for $64.2 million in 2016, and ever since then Bitmoji’s have been an integral addition to the identity of the app by allowing the user their custom made Bitmoji as the profile picture, the Snap Map feature, and even allows the user to add creativity to their stories.

Most observers feel the update will be effective in creating a more friendly experience for users.

It is safe to say that this update will only help but continue the popularity of Snapchat as not just an app, but a personalized experience every time you use it.
