This guide here starts with the assumptions that you already have Telegram app installed on your Android or iPhone device.
In case you don’t have the app on your phone, you can install it from Play Store (for Android) or App Store (for iPhone).
The installation process is simple and straightforward in both variants of mobiles and so, we will skip it in favor of a more important question.
Here is the question: ‘How to set up and use Bitmoji on Telegram?’
Let us begin with the guide!

Here are the steps that you need to follow:
- Step 1: Go to Play Store or App Store and find and install the Bitmoji App (Android, iOS).

- Step 3: Once you register and sign in, you will be asked to click a selfie (by allowing camera access to the app) and the app will create a cartoonized face of yours using the selfie.
- Step 4: Once the cartoonized avatar is created, you can now select the dress you want and adjust the look and feel of the avatar. You can experiment with a host of amazing features that the app offers. Once you are done, finalize the design and you will be ready to use the custom avatar with Telegram.
