If you already think that sending stickers and emojis by Whatsapp, Telegram and other applications is a bit boring, because here we have something that you will like a lot. With the explosion of personalized stickers, now you can add the possibility of creating your own animated avatar based on your photographs.
The name of the app is Zepeto and it gives you the possibility to create your own animated avatar. With it you can illustrate your own images and stickers and then send them by Whatsapp, Telegram, Facebook Messenger and others.
Zepeto is the new application that has invaded thousands of stories on Instagram. This allows us to become a virtual avatar. Similar to what Apple did with the Animoji or Samsung with the AR Emoji, the application makes use of our camera to create a virtual character.
Your own avatar in a matter of seconds
Although the main function of the app is to create an avatar so you can pose with it, take photos and put messages, this does not mean that it is the only thing that can be done with Zepeto. The idea of the app is that you can also be a participant in this “community”. Well with it you can find and make new friends, locate other avatars and share tastes and interests.
The functionality of Zepeto is simple. After downloading the application on the mobile, it will ask us to accept the various camera, storage and microphone permissions. Then, the front camera of our device will start and it will take a picture of our face.
After recognizing the main features of our face, Zepeto will create a virtual avatar as close as possible to us. Once created, we can customize it to our liking through different types of parameters. Such as the color of hair, shape of the beard, width and length of the face, color and shape of the eyes, hairstyle, and accessories and so on. Have we already created our avatar?
How do I make my avatar?
Believe it or not, it’s really very simple. As the app will use a selfie, it can be yours or not, to create the figure of the face by means of artificial intelligence software. Although the results are usually very good, the final touch should be given to you. It is your task to put hair, change the color of the eyes, and add beard and accessories to customize it 100%.
Once you have created your avatar, and you have named it, in Zepeto you will have different options to start a conversation with other users. As well as creating scenes to capture photos and create stickers that you can then share.
It should be noted that not everything is free within the world of Zepeto. And is that the app has its own virtual currency with which you can buy new outfits, scenes and accessories to equip them in your avatar. In the same way, you do not have to spend money inside the app, because there are already a lot of free items that you can access.
