To make meetings more flexible and fun, we’re adding avatars to our collection of filters. In addition to the animal avatars we released earlier last year, avatars are customizable virtual characters that you can create and use in your meetings. With numerous personalization combinations, you can display the ‘virtual you’ in a way that is original and fun! Avatars mirror your movements and facial expressions, allowing you to present yourself dynamically without needing to be on video and providing a more engaging alternative to static profile pictures to inject more fun and energy into your meetings.
Avatars are great for when you:
-Don’t want to be seen eating but still want to show that you’re present and engaged
-Want to present more dynamically than an off-camera static profile picture
-Are looking for fun activities for employee onboarding, team bonding exercises, and previously mundane meetings
Avatars are currently available in beta to all Zoom users globally. As it progresses in beta, we will continue to expand with additional facial features, hairstyles, and more customization options when creating your human avatar.
