Meta will also allow users to use their avatar in Zoom meetings. Starting in 2023, the facility is called Mission Zoom. With this feature, users can choose not to use their camera and use their avatar instead.
You will also be able to use these avatars in video calls on WhatsApp, Messenger and Instagram. According to the company, “Avatars will reflect their speakers’ expressions and movements during conversations—creating a middle ground between on-camera and off-camera experiences.”
In addition, Meta has announced that users will now be able to create their own avatar by taking selfies from their mobile cameras. That way, they don’t have to waste time building it from scratch, instead, they can use this time to finalize their avatars.
