Zoom takes on Apple’s Memoji with new virtual avatar feature for video calls

Share This Post

Do you wish to avoid revealing your face on yet another Zoom call? No need to be concerned! Zoom launched its new avatar function today, allowing you to inject some life into your next meeting or webinar.

You may now play as a dog, rabbit, fox, cat, or cow, among other animals, as part of Zoom 5.10’s update.

Avatars enable users to swap out their physical picture for a virtual figure that replicates their head and facial movements. As Apple did with Memoji, Zoom is initially providing animals, with other avatars to follow.

Apple has already integrated its Memoji into Facetime chats, enhancing the participatory nature of the video chatting experience.

Zoomers utilizing Windows, macOS, or iOS devices may access Avatars. To enable avatars, ensure that your account is up to date. This feature can be enabled only by account owners or administrators.

Additionally, Zoom provides various examples of how this capability may be used.

It may be used to enliven a dull meeting, assist instructors in assuming character during storytime, or even assist a physician in bringing a grin to a child’s face.

How to turn on Avatars: 

  1. Turn your webcam on, and enable video.
  2. In the meeting toolbar, open video options, and select “Stop Video.”
  3. Select a background or filter.
  4. Go to the Avatars tab, and select which avatar you’d like to be.

Zoom notes in its press release that it does not store any of your data or images of your face when you use this feature.
