This means that Vision Pro users will be able to create digital versions of themselves. If you have said Persona, other participants in the Zoom or FaceTime call will be able to through your avatar see your facial expressions and hand movements. Although Vision Pro users will be represented as Personas (if they choose this option), those joining the call from other devices will be shown as floating tiles.
Zoom will be one of the first major third-party apps to use this technology. Apple stated that Microsoft Teams and Cisco Webex will join this group as well. The company says it only takes a few minutes to set up Persona with Vision Pro.

It is also about to be added to the application team chat and a tool to pin five meeting participants anywhere in the virtual space while removing their background.
While Zoom may not be the most exciting app for those who buy the Vision Pro primarily for entertainment, it’s interesting to see what third-party companies are starting to do with the technology. While a Zoom call doesn’t initially look too different from a FaceTime chat, the addition of features like 3D object sharing could make it a more interesting alternative for mixed reality use.
