If you have been perusing through Snapchat, you may have noticed their addition of the Coronavirus PSA stickers to their reaction panel. The latest addition to this genre is the ability to add a face mask to your Snapchat Bitmoji. Snapchat has come out with a bunch of colorful and stylish masks that you can add and change as you like to your Bitmoji selfie.
What is a Bitmoji selfie
Your Bitmoji selfie is basically a selfie of your Bitmoji avatar. It will reflect any changes that you make in terms of physical appearances and outfits to your Bitmoji avatar. The Bitmoji selfie appears primarily as your profile image when you chat with another user. It is your representation attached to your contact.
Additionally, it appears on your Snapcode. Your Snapcode contains details about your profile and can be used as a calling card for other users to add you. They simply need to scan your Snapcode to find your profile on Snapchat.
Your Bitmoji selfie appears in the center of your Snapcode and can be edited to reflect your mood, as and when you would like.
You can edit your Bitmoji selfie to showcase different masks, facial expressions, hand gestures, and more!
