National, 20 July: Rolling out today, Snapchatters will be able to see a three dimensional version of themselves on their Snapchat Profile and Friendship Profile — offering an entirely new way to express themselves and their personalities on Snapchat.
With more than 200 million people using Bitmoji every day, Snapchatters will soon be able to browse from over 1,200 combinations of body poses, facial expressions, gestures, and backgrounds to further personalize their digital avatars. From peace signs and prayer hands, to scenic beaches and trendy animal print backgrounds — Snapchatters can now match their 3D Bitmoji to their every mood. Using Pixar-quality 3D capabilities, Snapchatters will see enhanced details on their customized avatar — from the clothing textures and unique embellishments from their favorite fashion labels, to the sparkle and shine on their avatar’s earrings.
Bitmoji bring visual identity and emotion into communication, content, and games and have added more nuance, and expression to everyday conversations. Bitmoji joined the Snap family in summer 2016 and over 300 million use it every month.
The new Profiles also will showcase an expanded Snapcode Menu, for easy Profile access. It will include editing options, like quickly changing your outfit, or hair style and, Profile sharing — so Snapchatters can have the option to share their customized 3D Bitmoji with their friends on and off of Snapchat.
As Bitmoji takes its next venture into 3D tech and personalized design, we’d love to work with you to help tell this story, and how the new feature is just the beginning of a much broader 3D roadmap for the company.
