Instagram has announced a new feature called Dynamic Profile Photos that allows users to use an image and avatar on their profile photo. Prior to this feature, users could only use a picture or their avatar as their profile photo.
“You can now add your avatar to the other side of your photo — and people who visit your profile can flip between the two,” according to Instagram’s tweet.

How to use dynamic profile picture feature on Instagram
Here are the steps you can follow to use the new feature of the Meta-owned photo-sharing platform.
- Open the Instagram app and go to Profile
- Tap “Edit Profile”
- Now add avatar using your camera and using customization options
Now every time someone opens your profile, the profile picture will flip between image and avatar.
In addition, avatars can be shared across the company’s Quest and VR platforms as stickers, profile pictures, on Feed, and more. The avatar feature also includes new face shapes and “accessories for people with disabilities”.
As for the unannounced, Meta recently introduced avatars to Instagram. According to Meta, if you’ve already created your avatar on Facebook, it will automatically enter the third dimension as part of this update. They can even jump into the editor if they want to make changes of their own.
Instagram chief Adam Mosseri recently said that the company will focus more on photos in 2023. He also acknowledged that the photo-sharing platform has been showing too many videos and not enough photos in the past year. He further added that Instagram is a photo-driven platform and photos will continue to be important for the platform.
