How to add a custom iMessage avatar in iOS 13

Do you know how you can add an avatar to almost any social application and all your friends, family, contacts, etc., will see it? Well, in iOS 13 you can finally do the same with iMessages.

You no longer have to wait for your contacts to use a good picture of you, or worry that your boss is using a picture of a cute pig or kitten to represent you in the group chat. Now you can add and share your own avatar, or even a Memoji. Let's see how.

There are two ways to start adding an avatar to your iMessage account on iOS 13. One is in the Messages application, and the other is in the Settings application, in Settings > Messages .

To start, open the Messages application and touch the ellipsis icon (…) at the top of the sidebar. Then tap Edit name and photo and follow the tour.

  To add a custom photo to iMessages, first choose the image and add its name.

First, you will be asked to choose a photo. One option is just your initials, in a circle. But you will also see your current address book avatar, taken from your contact card, in addition to several other options. Under the photo selector there is a section to add your name. It will also be filled with your own name.

  Confirm your choices to add a photo to your iMessages.

Touch Continue and you will be asked if you want to use the new photo everywhere. Your contact card will also be updated with this new image.

The following is a panel that asks who you want to share this information with. The options are Contacts only and Always ask . Choose the one you want.

Alternatively, you can make the same changes in the Configuration application, where you will benefit from a more practical interface to make the adjustments. For example, here is the photo suggestion page, complete with personalized Memoji and photos of you taken from the People album in the Photos application.

If you select a Memoji or Animoji (including a cute pig, if you wish), you will see another page where you can choose a pose. This is the same as the manufacturer of adhesives Memoji. After that, you can crop the photo inside a circle before saving it to work perfectly with iMessages.

Finally! IMessage Avatars

Allowing us to change our iMessage avatars is an interesting feature of Apple. He has always been able to choose his own image in almost all other messaging applications. But, of course, Apple's style is better, since it incorporates its contact card, its photos and its Memoji. I also like that you can easily choose to share it with your contacts.

One thing that I don't like is that you can't override another person's image in your own Messages application. You can deactivate all photos or show all photos. But there is no option to force the Messages application to use an image of your own contact list. That means that if your teenage nephew chooses some rude image for his iMessage ID, he will be forced to see it.
