User Avatars

Displays all users in the room as interactive avatars or as Bitmoji (for users who have one).

The User Avatars element is a fun and interactive alternative to the Multi-User Slot element. It gives users a sense of presence in a room even when their cameras are off.

When should I use the User Avatars element?

This element could be a good fit when:

  • Your audience tends to keep their cameras off and you'd like an alternative way for them to "be present"
  • The playful and casual aesthetic of cartoony avatars is suitable for your event's tone
  • A portion of your audience already has a Bitmoji

In terms of rooms, the User Avatars element can be used in most places where the Multi-User Slot element can be used. For example, auditoriums, panels, and All Hands rooms.

How can avatars interact?

Avatars can interact with the room in a few ways:

  • Clicking on the element will cause the user's avatar to run to the click location
  • Certain emoji reactions from the Reactions Bar will trigger the avatar to animate and emit emoji particles

What about users that don't have a Bitmoji?

For users that don't have a Bitmoji, ohyay displays a default avatar with a random color and a spherical head showing the user's profile image or emoji. See the 3D Avatar Default Bitmoji property for details.

ohyay will also show a small login prompt for these users when they enter a room with a User Avatars element (screenshot below).

For a more personalized experience, we recommend encouraging users in advance to create a Bitmoji and connect their Bitmoji to ohyay.

Users who aren't logged into Bitmoji will see this prompt when entering a room with a `3D Avatars` element.Users who aren't logged into Bitmoji will see this prompt when entering a room with a `3D Avatars` element.

  • User Avatars Display: A mode that determines which users in the room to display. Supported modes include Users not in slots (users that are not in a User Slot)) and All users (all users in the room).

  • User Avatars Emoji Particles: If enabled, emits emoji particles from avatars when their users send reactions from the Reactions Bar.

  • User Avatars Limit: The maximum number of avatars to display at a time. A large number of avatars in a small area can look very busy and crowded (and take longer to load). We recommended setting this based on the needs and design of your room.

  • User Avatars Name Labels: If enabled, display user names above each avatar. Otherwise, only the avatar is displayed.
