Last year at Meta Connect 2021, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg laid out the vision for the Metaverse as the successor to the mobile internet — a set of interconnected digital spaces and virtual reality that lets you do things you can’t do in the physical world. Importantly, it’ll be characterized by social presence, the feeling that you’re right there with another person, no matter where in the world you happen to be. In keeping with that vision, he also announced a new brand for the company, Meta, to better reflect their focus moving forward.
This year on October 11, Meta Connect 2022 took place and Zuckerberg took the virtual stage alongside leaders from Reality Labs at Meta and some special guests to showcase the progress they’ve made toward virtual and augmented reality over the past year.

Powering Productivity with Microsoft
Mark Zuckerberg was joined by Microsoft Chairman and CEO Satya Nadella, and together, they shared their plans to accelerate the future of work. This partnership can make Meta Quest Pro into an enterprise-ready device that’s easy to use, deploy, and manage at scale. Watch the five-minute video:
Accenture CEO, Julie Sweet, also revealed at Connect that the global professional services company is teaming up with Meta and Microsoft to help businesses around the world create new experiences that accelerate the future of work.

MOre Powerful Partnerships
Meta has been working with dozens of partners to create new experiences for people to get things done in VR. The collaboration with Autodesk and Adobe caught many people’s attention. Autodesk is updating their collaborative design review app with Meta Quest Pro, which will give architects and designers a new way of reviewing 3D models immersively.
