Teams now has the ability to host 3D meetings

Microsoft has announced support for 3D meeting options in Teams. The company notes that this format is more reminiscent of personal communication and allows you to fully use the capabilities of Mesh.

3D meetings will be available to Teams Essentials, Microsoft 365 Business Basic, Microsoft 365 Business Standard, Microsoft 365 Business Premium, Microsoft 365 E3/E5, and Office 365 E1/E3/E5 customers.

To navigate to an immersive space directly from a Teams meeting, you need to use the View > Immersive space (3D) menu item.

To sign in, you'll need an avatar that's already created for standard Teams meetings, or you can set up a new one.

Even those joining 3D meetings from standard Teams will be able to see, hear and interact with those present in an immersive space.

However, 3D meeting participants can concurrently communicate with each other beyond the shared area. The immersive space can have the same number of people as a regular space, but only 16 participants can be in it at the same time.

You can navigate through it using the WASD keys, and pressing V will switch between 1st and 3rd person avatar views.

In March 2023, Teams users were given the option to create 3D avatars. Microsoft has added a new lighting system to enhance the appearance of an avatar's skin and hair, as well as advanced settings that let you choose between a bindi or a hearing aid.


On June 6, 2024, the professional IT community Global CIO held an annual meeting with IT leaders from Uzbekistan. The event named “CIO of Uzbekistan as part of Global IT community” took place at the International Hotel in Tashkent. The meeting was aimed to exchange best practices, experiences and get together IT leaders from Central Asia.

The Global CIO professional IT community has conducted its annual survey of IT executives and would like to thank all the community members who helped realise this work. This survey explores the key challenges that CIOs face from their companies, as well as the CIO's personal view of their areas of responsibility. The survey included 100 respondents heading IT departments in companies.

The events of the past two years have shown how important it is not only to have a long-term strategy, but also to be able to quickly 'reformat' it to new circumstances. The metaphor of the whale and the Strategy methodology were created specifically for this process.
