Meta, formerly Facebook has announced a new update that brings new 3D avatars to Facebook. Users in the United States, Canada, and Mexico can now show up as their virtual selves in stickers, feed posts, Facebook profile pictures, and more.
If you have already created an avatar on Facebook, your existing Avatar will be converted into 3d. You don’t need to follow any steps.
