Meanwhile Facebook rebranding as Meta and focusing on Metaverse, other tech giants want to take a slice of the pie and follow up with the hype. Microsoft has now announced it, too, will incorporate the metaverse concept into already existing software and its own applications.
The battle has begun.
Lately, Satya Nadella, the Chairman and CEO of Microsoft, said in a video posted to Twitter that the tech titan was “creating an entirely new platform layer, which is the metaverse.”
In this post, we can see a number of potential metaverse use-cases for use in the world of business and industry with AR (augmented reality) and VR (virtual reality) implementation, which includes the new Mesh feature of the Microsoft Teams app.
On another hand, Facebook Reality Labs provides Oculus virtual reality products to merge the physical and digital worlds. The future headset named “Project Cambria" has no official release date yet, but already has great potential: cutting-edge features and cameras that pass high-resolution full-color video to the headset’s screens.
As Meta allows Horizon Workrooms for calls and videoconferencing, Microsoft states that it will allow participants to have a “shared, immersive experience” in Teams, with animated avatars.
While giants invest heavily in every experience linked to Metaverse, Zuckerberg will still remain the first one to start shaping what he believes will be the next major computing platform.
