Updated October 4, 2023: IT admins have been previously informed that there will be a new service plan in your Microsoft 365 or Office 365 licenses: MESH_AVATARS_FOR_TEAMS.
You may have also noticed that there is an additional service plan MESH_AVATARS_ADDITIONAL_FOR_TEAMS that was published alongside the MESH_AVATARS_FOR_TEAMS service plan.
Here are the intended uses of the two service plans:
MESH_AVATARS_FOR_TEAMS – this service plan enables or disables Mesh Avatars for Teams.
MESH_AVATARS_ADDITIONAL_FOR_TEAMS – this service plan is intended to differentiate any features that may be released separately between commercial and non-commercial customers due to different legal requirements
Please be mindful that there are currently no features in MESH_AVATARS_ADDITIONAL_FOR_TEAMS at this time so there are no actions needed. We will let you know when any features are added to this service plan.
----Original message below---
You will soon see a new service plan associated with your Microsoft 365 or Office 365 license: Avatars for Teams (MESH_AVATARS_FOR_TEAMS).

Avatars for Teams app is also updating the minimum hardware requirements to access this feature. The new minimum specified hardware requirement is a two core CPU with 6gb RAM. Users will not be able to utilize this feature if it does not meet the minimum hardware spec. This change is due to be able to provide users with a better Avatars for Teams experience.

[When this will happen:]

Rollout for the service plan will begin in late September and is expected to be complete by October. Rollout for the hardware requirements is expected to be complete by end of September.
