Summary

There really isn’t a “Zoom for VR” yet, despite many companies working on offering virtual meeting rooms. The mainstream work tools most people use haven’t made the leap. Facebook, which is trying to push its entire company into the metaverse, doesn’t have one yet. Meanwhile, Microsoft is finally pushing Teams into a VR/AR-bridged tool that’s arriving in beta form in the first half of 2022. 

The cross-device upgrade for laptops, phones, VR and Microsoft’s Hololens headsets makes its avatars the central focus, along with a set of immersive meeting spaces that will fold in Microsoft Office 365 apps and services. It sounds like it could be, in some ways, like what Facebook’s Horizon Workrooms has attempted to be for virtual work meetings.
