The integration of Teams, announces along with the CEO of Microsoft Satya Nadella, allows you to participate in a more immersive way in Horizon Workrooms meetings. There are no launch dates at the moment, but we know that the partnership between the two companies will extend even further. With Microsoft appearing to have adopted the metaverse with determination.
In fact the Redmond company is already working on VR versions of Microsoft 365, with Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook which will soon be available on Meta’s Quest 2 and Quest Pro headsets.
Among the other innovations announced by Meta to work in VR there are also the VR Whiteboards, which will allow you to use the ‘digital whiteboards’ also in 3D. Furthermore, Zuckerberg suggested the next launch of the ‘Magic Rooms’, which will provide experiences of mixed reality instead of just virtual.
