Gestures are a type of inventory item (shown as ) that trigger your avatar to animate, play sounds, and/or emit text chat. Created with a series of steps, gestures can be used for practical purposes or to amuse friends. For example, a cartoon "Squish!" noise accompanied by your avatar falling down. In Second Life culture, many gestures are openly shared because they make social activity more fun.

You can trigger a gesture with:

  • Local text chat
  • Keyboard shortcuts
  • Public voice chat volume
