Microsoft Mesh Apps
Microsoft launched a preview of the Mesh app for HoloLens during Ignite 2021, which is initially aimed at enabling co-workers to collaborate with each other remotely. “Customers can also request access to a new version of Mesh-enabled AltspaceVR, which will allow companies to hold meetings and work gatherings in virtual reality with enterprise-grade security features including secure sign-ins, session management and privacy compliance,” Microsoft said.
Microsoft also disclosed that it’s planning to integrate Mesh with its Teams collaboration app—opening the possibility of holding Teams meetings inside the Mesh virtual space—as well as with Dynamics 365, Microsoft’s combined CRM and ERP offering. Additionally, Microsoft said it “expects customers will be able to choose from a growing set of Microsoft Mesh-enabled applications built by external developers and partners” in the future.
