Bitmojis took the world by storm when they came out thanks to their creepy resemblance to their creators and their ability to brighten up boring conversations. Bitmoji can be considered part of the evolution of emoji. A stepping stone as we progress into even more advanced ways of communicating.

But what makes the avatars created in Bitmoji resemble their respective owners so much? Well, believe it or not, a lot of thought has gone into this. Those thoughts entered the mind of a man named Blackstock figuring out that most faces are made up of a combination of several different choices of characteristics. Blackstock discovered there is only a handful of face shapes, lip types, eye and eyebrow shapes out there. So, it was just a matter of combining the right ones.

After Blackstock applied this formula to his work, Bitmoji really started to take off. This in conjunction with giving the avatars context like hobbies, made the app such a hit. Emphasizing peoples hobbies seemed to be the key to making the avatars distinct in their appearance.

Getting started with Bitmoji latest version

Creating your own custom avatar is easy. Firstly, you’ll need to download the Bitmoji latest version apk file by clicking the download button. Install the app, but be sure to enable downloads from unknown sources first. When downloaded, install the app, open it and create a new account using your email or your Snapchat account.

Now comes the fun part. Create your Bitmoji mini-you in several screens that will prompt you to choose face shape, hair color, eyes, jaw structure, clothing and so on. Don’t worry about perfecting it too much, as you can always modify it later to suit your tastes.

Customize it further

Bitmoji goes beyond simply choosing facial features. There are a ton of clothing items you can choose from including limited edition and brand name outfits. The “Dress Your Avatar” option lets you be a policeman, chef or rock official sports Jerseys. Most of these themed outfits are free but some can be purchased for around $0.99c.

Apps supporting Bitmoji

Snapchat is where use if Bitmoji is most rife. Users can show their avatar based on their global location, and avatars can even interact with each other in Snapchat. There are a bunch of other apps that support Bitmoji such as WhatsApp, FB Messenger, and Tinder.
