You can now use avatars on Microsoft Teams
Microsoft recently announced that it is introducing avatars to Teams, its videoconferencing and workplace collaboration app.
The avatars, which are a part of Microsoft's Mesh technology, lets users select personalised, animated representations of themselves to appear in Teams meetings. Users can create up to three avatars with the Avatars app in the Microsoft Teams app store to use in a Teams meeting with motions to react to topics.
Avatars are a modest attempt to breathe new life into Teams. Microsoft claims that more than 270 million individuals use Teams on a monthly basis.
Organisations interested in testing out avatars can sign up for updates on the Teams website if they are not currently a part of the Teams Technical Access Program. Avatars are accessible in the standard Teams for private preview clients.
