Jan. 25 (Portaltic/EP) –
instagram has entered a new feature that allows users to simultaneously use a traditional photo and an avatar as profile picturethanks to the dynamic profile pictures that make it possible to switch between the two.
Instagram aims to make it easy for users options to further customize the profilefinding new forms of use for the 3d avatars, that can be created from the platform itself and offer “more ways to express yourself,” as stated by the goal at the launch of 3D avatars last year.
So, just as it has indicated the social network through Twitter, users will be able to add your avatar “on the other side” of the profile picture. In this way, people who visit the profile will be able to switch between the image and the avatar with just swipe to the side in the circle that usually contains the photo.

In other words, as can be seen in an illustrative video shared by Instagram, when the user slides their finger over the picture, is It will turn like a coin showing the other side, in which the selected avatar will be found. Also, the avatar will be animated and will wave hello when it appears.
To introduce this novelty, the user will only have to click on edit profile and subsequently, add the desired avatar. After that, the profile photo will automatically change to this dynamic state. However, you can remove the avatar at any time and leave only the photo, to return to a static profile image.
