A lot of attention has been directed towards the idea of a metaverse, which in short is an expansive digital universe where users can interact with one another via digital avatars of themselves (or whatever avatar the user prefers). This universe could, in theory, combine the functionality of computers and smartphones with almost every digital platform and application in existence. Users could perform both productivity-related activities (collaborating on work projects, holding team meetings, working with clients) and leisure-related activities (playing games with friends and family, meeting up with distant relatives, watching concerts, other live events, TV shows, and movies) in a seamless fashion. The user would not need to jump from digital platform to platform to access different applications. What the metaverse actually ends up looking like, assuming this concept materializes into something more tangible, remains to be seen. However, what is abundantly clear today is that tech companies are investing heavily to make this vision a reality. Meta Platforms, Qualcomm and Microsoft remain key players.
