TikTok introduced last month a new Avatar feature as part of the latest addition to the platform and as a means for showcasing the community's individuality.
The new feature allows users to recreate themselves as virtual beings, using camera detection to overlay their faces. From there, users can personalize their look and style by choosing from a variety of hairstyles, accessories, makeup and piercings.
