In recent years, utilizing of an avatar is becoming popular at social VR contents. On the other hand, previous studies have reported that an avatar gives us positive effect in terms of the sense of immersion, a psychological effect, and the spatial awareness. Thus, we investigate how the avatar which a virtual body is used daily in social VR contents impact on the body ownership and the Quality of Experience, comparing with a realistic humanoid avatar.
