Cartoon you: Avatars, the virtual customisable characters already available on Facebook and Instagram, are officially launching on WhatsApp from today.

Announcing the introduction of the new feature on WhatsApp, Zuckerberg wrote on Facebook: 'We're bringing avatars to WhatsApp! 

WhatsApp's avatars feature has been slowly rolling out to beta testers on both Android and iOS for a couple of months now, according to WABetaInfo, but it will now be available for all users on mobile from today

Meta's avatars are one of a number of virtual characters available across different platforms and messaging apps, including Bitmoji

Staying on the metaverse theme, Facebook last year launched a virtual reality meeting app called Horizon Workrooms that it hopes can one day rival the likes of Zoom and Skype

It allows users to host boardroom-style get-togethers with cartoon avatars of their colleagues and is part of Zuckerberg's ambition to turn Facebook into a futuristic 'metaverse'

With some companies still operating remotely following the Covid pandemic, the social network launched a virtual reality meeting app that it hopes can one day rival the likes of Zoom and Skype

It allows users to host boardroom-style get-togethers with cartoon avatars of their colleagues and is part of CEO Mark Zuckerberg's ambition to turn Facebook into a futuristic 'metaverse'. 

With some companies still working from home because of the Covid pandemic, Meta launched a virtual reality meeting app called Horizon Workrooms (pictured) that may one day rival the likes of Zoom and Skype for remote catch-ups

Even Zuckerberg has his own avatar, which he debuted in a demonstration with CBS This Morning host Gayle King, suggesting other users will also be able to self-style what they look like on the app

Virtual reality: The app was launched as a beta test and is designed to be used with a VR headset

Up to 16 participants can be hosted in the room, or up to 50 if the extra users are joining via a Zoom-style video chat as opposed to a virtual reality headset
