Bitmoji (App Store, gratis)
It was only in March that Snapchat announced the acquisition of Bitstrips, the company that owns the Bitmoji app, and now we see the fruits of this purchase. According to a creative official statement from the company, from today it will be possible to send Bitmoji custom emojis and stickers in conversations and snaps .
In order to start using these tools, users must download the Bitmoji application to their smartphone completely free of charge. Then, from the Snapchat settings, they can select the option to connect their accounts from the two applications. Bitmojis are not a new topic, as the app has been available for quite some time, but has gone unnoticed by most users.
The Bitmoji application also received an update, so its home screen changed and to start using it, will ask you to register using your Snapchat account .
It’s important to note that the version of Bitmoji on iOS that supports Snapchat is 188.8.131.52. When you download the app you must create a bitmoji that looks similar to you or one of your friends . You can choose your skin tone, your hair and of course some of your physical features. When you’re ready, you should go to the option of linking the bitmoji to Snapchat, and you’re done!
When you have completed the process, you can go to the Snapchat app and check the sticker section, there you will find your bitmoji and you can send it through an image or video you make in the app , just like a traditional sticker.
