Metta announced that it has reached one billion unique Metta avatars across its platforms, including Facebook, Messenger and Instagram. In celebration of this milestone, it has announced the introduction of new personalization options for Meta Avatar.
Avatars are pictorial representations of a person’s appearance or personality. Meta reintroduced its Meta Avatars in 2019. Meta has tried to improve the level of personalization over time. It introduced the option to outfit avatars with assistive devices and NFL shirts, and launched a digital clothing store in select regions.
While brands like Balenciaga, Prada, and Thom Browne have already set up shop at the Meta Avatars Store, PUMA has now joined the bandwagon with seven outfits that will be available for purchase starting May 1, 2023. It seems just in time for spring. It is also named after Shakira’s song “Hips Don’t Lie” if expressing yourself means dancing to the song.
Meta says she is constantly improving on small and subtle details in between big changes, because details help personalities shine. It’s adding hair volume options and simulating glitter in the eyes to make it more visually appealing. It is also adding details and textures to the dress to make it more realistic.
A major feature drop is the addition of new body shapes. It is adding more curves allowing users to make their avatar closer to their imagination. Meta has also reviewed how avatars’ hair, eyes, and clothing appear on its platforms. It has added realism through tweaked lighting and reflection models. You can learn more. Here.
