TikTok is testing a new avatar feature that will enable users to create a digital character avatar based on a selfie, with facial expressions that will match your actual look.

As you can see in this example, posted by social media analyzer and expert Matt Navarra, – TikTok seems to be an in-testing avatar feature that would enable you to choose a face template, which you would then be able to edit in-app. You may then be able to further customize your avatar’s expressions based on your actual face, providing new ways to share emotion and response in the app.

The avatar process looks similar to Apple’s ‘Memoji’, which enables you to use your chosen Memoji character as essentially a digital puppet, with the capacity to make the character move in response to your actions when looking at the camera.
