The new Bitmoji Deluxe upgraded Bitmoji creator allows you to choose from over 100 new options and take a selfie to help you get the best looking Bitmoji for Snapchat and the Bitmoji keyboard.
Starting today, you can switch from a normal Bitmoji avatar to a Bitmoji Deluxe avatar inside the Bitmoji app. This unlocks 40 skin tones, 50 hair colors, 50 hair styles and tons of new customization options that allow you to get a better looking Bitmoji that looks even more like you.
The Bitmoji Deluxe upgrade is rolling out starting today, but not all users can see it and start using it yet. Even if you primarily use your Bitmoji in Snapchat, you will need the Bitmoji app to use the Bitmoji Deluxe feature on your iPhone or Android. The feature is coming to both phones at the same time and using it is the same for each. Once setup, you can even use this Bitmoji on Facebook or on Mac or PC.
How to use Bitmoji Deluxe
Make sure your Bitmoji app is updated and then follow these instructions to make the change. If you don’t see the option, you will need to check back later as it is not available for everyone at the same time.
Open the Bitmoji app.
Tap on Settings.
Tap on Avatar Style.
Choose Bitmoji Deluxe.
From there you can take a selfie that will show up next to your Bitmoji as you create it so that you can reference your look. The video below shows off all of the new Bitmoji Deluxe options that allow you to create an avatar that looks even more like the real version.
While customizing, you can now choose form way more options to make sure your Bitmoji looks even more like you do. This process should take you a few minutes to complete as you try out the different options and reference your selfie to see if the look is just right.
If you don’t see the new Bitmoji Deluxe options when you are trying to make these changes, you should check back again in a few hours, or later this week as the new feature is just coming online for some users. Once created, you can use the new Bitmoji Deluxe in Snapchat, in the keyboard and basically anywhere you can use Bitmoji.
