Microsoft has rolled out its Mesh system in Teams that will allow “3D immersive experiences using next-generation technology.”

That means your Teams meetings may not happen on camera but might instead be held in a virtual world.

Mesh is available on PCs and Meta Quest VR devices, the company said.

Some companies, such as Takeda, Accenture and Mercy Ships, are already using the technology, Microsoft said, sharing examples of how Mesh has been integrated into employees’ lives.

Microsoft says Mesh can be used in a variety of ways, including brainstorming, team social events or roundtable discussions. You can have small-group discussions with “spatial audio, which enables productive side conversation during brainstorming, like in the physical world.”

Users create an avatar that will sit in for them in a 3D world. You can also use traditional Teams features like chat and live reactions while in the Mesh-simulated world.
