There will be a swipe-up “more” option that will show the tagged person’s name, handle, Bitmoji, and an add button. The person tagged will be sent a notification.

The social media app confirmed to TechCrunch that “we’re testing this”, but didn’t explain any further details.

The feature hasn’t yet rolled out to all users, and there is no official word on when to expect a formal release.
