The updated applications allow users to choose their favorite friends, turn their avatars into Bitmoji widgets and add them to their Today screens on iOS or their home screens on Android.
Snapchat acquired personalized emoji app Bitmoji and comic strip app Bitstrips in March 2016.
Here’s how to use the new feature:
- iOS: Go to your Bitmoji home screen and swipe right to access the Today screen (Widgets page). Scroll down to edit and add Snapchat, and your Snapchat best friends and their respective Bitmoji will appear on your Today screen.
- Android: Press and hold any blank area on the Bitmoji homepage. Select Widgets, followed by Snapchat. You can then choose up to four friends to appear on your home screens.
