Microsoft collaborates with Meta to deliver Teams, Office, Windows, and Xbox to virtual reality
Last year, Microsoft and Meta seemed to be on a collision course, set to battle fiercely for the future of employment in the metaverse. However, both firms said today that they would cooperate on how people will work and even play in virtual reality. The first step is for Microsoft to deliver its most important services — Teams, Office, Windows, and possibly Xbox Cloud Gaming — to Meta’s Quest VR devices.
Microsoft and Meta will combine their skills in an unexpected collaboration. Microsoft sees a chance to bring Teams and other productivity applications to a powerful VR headset, and Meta gains a major partner in its broad metaverse strategy.
