Meta Avatars Have Legs and Are Coming to Your Zoom Meetings


Meta announced Tuesday at its Meta Connect event that its next-generation avatars will have legs, and you’ll be able to use your avatar in more places online.

“Legs are hard,” Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg said at the event. “We’re going to bring legs to Horizon [Worlds] first, and we’re gonna keep bringing them to more experiences over time as we improve our technology stack.”

On top of legs, avatars will also show a wider range of facial expressions and reactions to better convey how people are feeling. People will also be able to choose more body types and skin tones for their avatars to better represent who they are. 

Meta also announced a new feature that lets you use your avatar in Zoom meetings, called Mission Zoom. Once it’s launched, if you don’t want to be on camera but you still want to show up on screen, your avatar will be able to take your place.

These features are expected to arrive in 2023.
