The world’s leading technology company, Microsoft, has unveiled its equivalent of the metaverse, a software platform called Mesh that unifies collaborative virtual reality features for Teams users.
The platform will deploy the company’s mixed reality technology and its HoloLens headsets to allow for virtual meetings, conferences, and video calls that users can attend as avatars. The technology will eventually be integrated into its suite of Microsoft 365 apps and services and create room for many exciting applications. For instance, if you need to collaborate on a document with a coworker, you can put on a headset and do it through your VR avatars.
Microsoft’s Mesh platform will also enable the conventional web and app-based Teams meetings apart from the VR avatars. The 3D avatar, nonetheless, will be customizable and possibly usable even without a headset.
The company plans to make the 3D avatars much more interactive. For example, they will use artificial intelligence to comprehend your voice and look exactly like how you speak through facial movements and expressions. You could also raise your hand when you press the raise hand button during a call.
The company stated that the new virtual spaces and avatars will start rolling out in the first half of 2022.
