Microsoft launches Mesh 3D meetings for Teams

Microsoft’s metaverse for the workplace has officially arrived with the full launch of Mesh virtual meeting spaces on Wednesday.

Instead of a Teams video call, workers can now don a virtual reality headset and interact with colleagues in a range of three-dimensional environments. Microsoft sees a variety of use cases for this: town halls, social gatherings, brainstorming sessions, and employee onboarding, are among the examples cited.

A VR headset isn’t necessary: Mesh spaces can also be accessed via a regular PC, with users controlling a personalized avatar that can navigate the various settings. For those who want a fully immersive experience, support for Meta’s Quest headsets will arrive on Thursday. (Microsoft declined to comment about availability on Apple’s Vision Pro, which launches Feb. 2.)
