Assigning full-body avatars
Stand-alone VR headsets, and Android and iOS phones and tablets, display a maximum of five users as full-body avatars. On these devices, all other users appear as basic avatars. For more information, see Full-body and basic avatars.
These restrictions do not apply to Windows and macOS desktop devices or PC VR headsets. On these higher-specification devices, all users appear as full-body avatars. If you change the allocation of full-body and basic avatars while on a higher-specification device, you will not see any change to the avatars in the Session.
The first five users that join a Session are assigned full-body avatar status. However, a host can change this assignment. For example, if you run an event, you may want to ensure that presenters appear as full-body avatars on lower-specification devices, regardless of when they join the Session.
