This means you will not have to un-mute yourself to be heard after you first login. Most of the fun in this game comes from customization imo and without vr you can't make proper use of that so that makes a large difference for me. These emotes in the custom avatar controller is the 8 emotes that non-vr users have access to. If you find yourself in a Hub with no one else around, wait a few minutes for more to show up. A bus showed up a few minutes later being driven by a leprechaun, which quickly filled up with a host of Mario characters all needing a ride around the lake. If you log in and travel to different worlds often, then yes, the folder will come back, and yes, it will fill up again.

It can be very confusing when someone cannot hear you or you are unable to hear another user. You're assuming that's what the community wants.
