The metaverse is shaping up to be one of the most influential new forms of tech in the future. In a report by British holding company Regus, 65% of business leaders felt that metaverse would be the main way for them to get work done in the future — especially when it comes to videoconferencing.
At the same time, 44% of office workers said that working from the metaverse might be able to help them communicate better with their colleagues.
The positive feedback on metaverse is mostly due to one major work trend: hybrid work. Working half in the office and at home can make communication difficult. It also leads to misunderstandings and mistakes.
Fortunately, the Metaverse can help to bridge that gap. For one, it allows employees and managers to hold office-style meetings without being physically together. It also helps teams collaborate more effectively, even in a remote arrangement.
However, some are still skeptical of the Metaverse and how it works. Most initial promotional images fail to provide anything meaningful or exciting beyond it looking like an online game with bad graphics.
And Meta should take into account these criticisms, as well as Regus’ latest study. The tech giant should make improvements on what testers and users have pointed out, knowing that a lot of industry players are hoping for a better outcome.
