Have you ever considered attending a meeting, not as yourself but as a digital version that shows your reactions and can be worn in different attires? Now, Microsoft Mesh is bringing this concept to life for Teams users. I must say, the future of virtual collaboration appears very interesting!

Microsoft Mesh has been progressing on a course to change how we communicate in the digital sphere, and its most recent modifications show no signs of stopping this development.

The AI is making avatar creation easier. Do you recall when forming a digital representation of yourself seemed like science from outer space? Microsoft Mesh listened and brought in an AI-driven answer that forms your avatar by examining a photo that you upload.

This implies that you can select from three avatars that closely resemble yourself, rendering it an effective and enjoyable procedure.

But how will you show your feelings in a meeting? In a blog post, Microsoft says avatars will have emotes starting in July. So, think about this: a thumbs up or nod to show agreement, all expressed by your digital proxy. Also, Microsoft is including a wardrobe enhancement.

In July, we will add emotes as another way to express yourself in the 3D immersive spaces built into every Teams meeting. While you’re in an immersive space, select the “reactions” button in the menu bar at the bottom center of the immersive space view. Find the new emotes below the original Teams reactions and begin expressing yourself during meetings.


Now, if the meeting demands it, you can abandon the casual appearance and opt for more formal attire.

New immersive spaces are coming for customization lovers. Whether for a thinking session or a meet-up, Mesh in Teams is preparing to provide areas for different purposes with interactive activities and flexible seating options.

Moreover, it’s not only about aesthetic appearance within the digital realm. Advancements in content sharing and avatar interactions are also being introduced to guarantee that your virtual existence is equally useful and striking.

From better legibility of shared materials to personal limits for avatars, Mesh ensures that collaboration always stays central in its virtual areas.

For event organizers, custom experiences are becoming high-end. Think about easily setting up your event, placing objects in the space, and moving between rooms to interact with smaller groups. This customization is expected to make virtual events more interactive and personal.

Microsoft Mesh is working towards a future where virtual meetings and collaborations are necessary and enjoyable.

With AI-powered avatars, expressive emotes, and immersive spaces, digital interaction possibilities seem limitless. And what more? These updates are rolling out soon, so get ready to meet the digital you!
