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.
Artificial intelligence technologies have been developing for decades, but only in the last few years have neural networks "smartened up" to a level that allows them to be used as assistants or even to replace human labor.
The beginning of the year was marked by a flurry of activity by various legislators to deal with artificial intelligence. The New York Times filed a lawsuit against OpenAI and Microsoft, and the UAE created an AI council to accelerate the adoption of AI systems in critical sectors of the economy.
What should a business solution be, so that it is chosen by young people, but at the same time not rejected by older professionals? Maybe beauty will save the peace in the team, because everyone wants to work in an application that looks beautiful? It is true, but User Interface (UI) is good when it is based on User Experience (UX). If harmony between UI and UX is achieved, the product will be both beautiful and user-friendly.
