Microsoft is launching a public preview of 3D avatars that can be used in Teams meetings instead of turning on a webcam. These avatars can be fully customized, animate based on vocal cues, and work with emoji reactions. They can also be used by people who do not have webcams on their devices. Microsoft has been testing these avatars on its Microsoft Mesh platform in private preview and aims to roll them out broadly in May. These avatars will be used in Microsoft Mesh integration for Teams in 3D meetings. They will also be compatible with VR headsets for virtual meetings.
Starting today, you can represent yourself the way you want with customizable avatars and reactions. Learn more about enabling the avatars for Teams public preview experience here . For more information on avatars, visit our website .
