instagram has introduced a new feature that allows users to simultaneously use a traditional photo and an avatar as their profile image, thanks to dynamic profile photos that make it possible to toggle between the two.
Instagram intends to provide users with options to further customize the profile, finding new ways of using 3D avatars, which can be created from the platform itself and offer “more ways to express yourself”as stated by the goal at the launch of 3D avatars last year.
Thus, as the social network has indicated through Twitter, users will be able to add their avatar “on the other side” of the profile photo. Thus, profile visitors will be able to toggle between the image and the avatar by simply sliding your finger to the side in the circle that usually contains the photo.

In other words, as can be seen in an illustrative video shared by Instagram, when the user slides their finger over the image, it will rotate like a coin showing the other side, where the selected avatar will be found. Also, the avatar will be animated and make greeting gestures when it appears.
To introduce this novelty, the user will only have to click on edit profile and, later, add the desired avatar. After that, the profile photo will automatically change to this dynamic state. However, you can remove the avatar at any time and leave only the photo, to return to a static profile image.
