After Notes, Group profiles, and Candid Story, another surprise awaits you. Yes! Instagram has launched a new feature named Dynamic Profile Photo. This feature let its users showcase both their profile photo and their avatar at the same time. Earlier, you could display just one of them, either your Profile Picture or Avatar. But now you can add both together, and there is no need to take a tough call. So flaunt more of you with this new on Instagram, and thank me later for letting you know about this amazing new feature.
The announcement regarding this new feature- Dynamic Profile Photo, was officially made on Twitter yesterday by Instagram from their official Twitter account, which goes like this, “Now you can add your avatar to the other side of your pic— and people who visit your profile can flip between the two.”
So, guys, now it is time to learn how to set up your Dynamic Profile Photo on Instagram.
How to Set Your Dynamic Profile Photos?
Here is your step-by-step guide on how to set up your Dynamic Profile Photos on Instagram. So follow these steps to get your Dynamic Profile Photos ready for display.
Step 1: Open the Instagram app.
Step 2: Tap on your profile from the bottom menu bar.
Step 3: Tap on the Edit Profile option.
Step 4: Tap on your Avatar.
Note: If you haven’t already created your Avatar, you can create one by tapping Create Avatar, which a prompt will bring to you.
Step 5: Turn the toggle on next to Add to profile picture.
And you are done. Now onwards, whenever anyone visits your profile, your profile picture will automatically flip over to your avatar to make it visible to them and which in turn will show that you have set your Dynamic Profile Photos.
This update is one of its own kind as it introduces Avatar Animation. Set up your profile to know about it. (your avatar will wave when it is displayed, hehe!) Meta is in no way ready to stay behind Snapchat in any mean, and this is quite evident in the changes that it has brought ever since Snapchat rejected the offer to be a part of Meta. It is making Avatar available on every platform, WhatsApp, Facebook, Messenger, or Instagram, to give tough competition to Snapchat, an app that is the pioneer of this Avatar culture.
This new change is, in a way, in the direction of what Instagram head Adam Mosseri said, ‘we would look to make photos more of a focus in 2023.’ Reels and IGTV made photos less visible on the platform and made the platform more of a video-sharing platform, much like TikTok. To change this, the head of Instagram reassured users that photos will always be important for the platform as it is the very essence of Instagram.
