Zoom Now Supports Cartoon Avatars

Zoom Now Supports Cartoon Avatars

As the beta progresses, Zoom will bring a wide range of facial features, hairstyles and customization options as well

Users can now pose as cartoon characters during video meetings with Zoom’s new cartoon avatar update. Users will find this feature quite interesting, and it even includes movements and facial expressions, just as Apple’s Memoji and humanoid cartoons do. The main aim behind this avatar drive is to bring zaniness to less formal meetings.

Zoom already offered animal avatars this year, but now it’s adding human avatars. It is suggested that this efficient feature can be used in situations where one does not want to show off and use a fixed profile, such as when eating, etc.

It’s even available for beta testers. However, a paid account is required. The innovation doesn’t stop there, Zoom will also bring a host of facial features, hairstyles and customization options in the future as the beta version progresses.

Zoom templates have also been launched as an alternative to different types of meetings. Three ready-made templates are provided, and based on people’s choice, they can choose from them or make one of their own choice.

These three ready-to-use templates are: large gatherings (automatic subtitles and automatically recorded content), second for seminars (more detailed crowd control settings with disabled screen sharing) and last but not least K-12 (Surveys and quizzes are active while distraction functions are limited).

Topic messages and reactions from current meetings will also be available next month. A similar representation of this can be seen in Slack, Facebook Messenger or iMessages.

There will also be question and answer options for your members, further organizing the meeting by limiting questions to one part of the program. They can decide to make all questions visible to members or to make answers visible. The host needs a premium plan to use this feature.
