Microsoft is integrating its mixed reality platform, Microsoft Mesh, into Microsoft Teams. This enables immersive 3D meetings and events with avatars within Teams. Spatial audio and integrated audio zones enable multiple simultaneous conversations in the same room. Although a VR headset is not required for 3D teamwork, the experience is much more immersive. The Mesh platform is expected to be introduced to Teams in January next year. Despite the integration, Microsoft Mesh will remain a standalone platform.
