Snapchat is one of the most popular messaging apps on the planet right now owing to the slew of privacy features and the overall ease of communication makes it especially popular with the younger generation, 

There are a lot of things Snapchat does differently as compared to its competition. So much so that we’ve seen the competition just completely rip off features from them. 

With most of the app features revolving around protecting user privacy, some things work differently than you might expect. 

Profile pictures, for example, aren’t your photos. They’re a digital avatar of yourself called a bitmoji. You can deck them out in whatever style you want including but not limited to multiple hairstyles and hair colours as well as a bunch of different clothing and accessories. 

Once your avatar is created, you can select an avatar selfie to use as your profile picture in Snapchat. Neat, isn’t it?

In this article, we’re going to talk about how you can change your avatar selfies and your avatar itself in Snapchat.
