Snapchat has tried to increase its potential audience by including wheelchair animations for Bitmoji characters. This could be very fascinating for the disabled audience and might come to the platform to check out this new feature.
The new Bitmoji stickers will show users avatars in a manual wheelchair animation, which both Snapchat and Bitmoji users can use. This gives more room to the audience to portray themselves more precisely on the platform.
Bitmoji’s mission has always been to create avatars that reflect and represent the diversity of our community. And while we recognize that we have more work to do, today we hope to become one step closer in reaching our greater goal of making inclusivity a fundamental part of our Bitmoji avatar platform.
As we move further, the company is focusing on adding more ways in which users can represent themselves over the Snapchat family. But this decision is totally based on how a community reacts to this new feature.
To create this first round of designs, we gathered their feedback, and worked closely with our disability rights advisor – both collectively guiding us in their design, specifically around the manual wheelchair’s details: the arm guard, the foot rest, the fabric of the seat, and how the spokes are positioned.
How To Use Bitmoji Wheelchair Animations
By following the below-mentioned steps, you can easily use Snapchat new Wheelchair Animation feature:

In the last couple of years, Snapchat has faced the heat for not giving so many features to vision-impaired users. Adding Wheelchair animations in the Bitmoji stickers is one step to prove that the company is also taking care of such audiences.
