|You can now create your own avatar in Teams!|
|Not happy with how you look? Why not create an idealised avatar of yourself in Teams, which can then replace the real you?|
Sigh ... you can now create your own avatar in Teams.
An avatar created by another of the Wise Owls - it's an impressive likeness Andrew ...
Here's how to create a picture of yourself, with all blemishes removed:
Choose this option from the More button in Teams.
You can then click on the Avatars tab:
You're ready to go - just click on the button to create your own avatar!
You'll then need to add the Avatars app:
You won't get far without clicking on this button.
I started with this base avatar - he seems to come straight out of Thunderbirds (a reference for older readers there):
My base avatar - already I'm feeling pessmiistic ...
Don't forget to change your hair and eye colour:
You can use the colour picker to change colours.
When you've finished creating the perfect representation of yourself (!) you can create 3 versions of this, to reflect different moods:
Click on the + button to add personas.
I've added 2 duplicates of my original avatar, and am already losing patience with the process!
You can have at most 3 avatars.
I found I had to exit Teams and restart it for my avatars to show up - I don't know if there is a way round this. You can then choose which avatar to use:
Hmm ... which to choose?
You can then also choose an avatar reaction and a background:
I chose Kawaii as my reaction, despite having no idea what this is. Maybe a Star Trek reference?
I confess, however, that I can't then get this reaction to show up - all that you seem to have are the standard 5 Teams reactions:
You can choose a reaction as usual.
Impressively, Teams animates your avatar according to the reaction you choose:
Here's what I get if I choose the right-hand reaction (Surprised).
So there you have it - yet another thing to play about with during a boring Teams meeting! And if you preview your effect rather than applying it no one else will ever see what you're doing ... !
