Live avatars is a cool and unique feature by Virola, which helps to create a feeling of live presence, sort of, as if you are working in an office. If you make your avatar live, other team members can recognize your movements and emotions and the whole team will feel more connected.
To make your avatar live, click the Video icon in the toolbar of any of the chat rooms. Only the participants of this room will see your avatar live.
If you want to watch someone's live avatar, click the Watch icon in the toolbar of the respective chat room.
If you need to step out and take a break, you can always disable the live feature and the team will see just your usual static avatar.
