I tried that remaining night time even as all my friends had been posting pix of their personal avatars and I didn’t see any alternative in any way to create one. The hassle? I was searching in Messenger, which nonetheless doesn’t have an Avatar button—at least, now not for me, and no longer for all of us whose phones I’ve checked.
