Facebook users in the US can try the new Avatar feature out for themselves, CNN noted. These screenshots were taken in the Facebook app on iOS, but the steps are similar in the Android version. Alternatively, users can go to the comment composer, tap on the smiley button, then the sticker tab, then tap on Create Your Avatar.

You can then send stickers in Facebook Messenger or use them in comments, just tap the emoji button at the side of the box and under stickers you'll see your avatar at the bottom next to a clock symbol. Tapping on Next opens up the customization screen. Users should tap on Next after choosing preferred option for each detail of the avatar, which includes hairstyle, hair color, face shape, eye shape and color, and so on.

When complete, click on the tick mark in the top right corner, and once you're finished with the process, click on "done".
