Microsoft has high hopes for the metaverse in the future. At a recent conference, Henry Bzeih, Microsoft’s chief strategy officer, said that the world will move to a deeper virtual arena, with a hybrid prototype being the next big thing for customers and corporate relationships.
According to Henry Bzeih, the discussion of customer experience and feedback will need to include the utility of the metaverse. Henry Bzeih has worked for twenty-eight years in the automotive and related technology industry.
Henry Bzeih completes his presentation by explaining that Microsoft is essentially working on mobile cross-functionality, which is helping to change the way customers use platforms to shop. One particular example is the way customers are buying cars right now. Instead of bothering to go to a local dealership to choose their favorite car, customers can simply change the car’s colors, features and utilities on the metaverse. He also mentioned the Fiat 500e, which will be featured in Microsoft’s digital car showroom.
Microsoft’s association with metaverse company Touchcast has enabled data fabrication for the Fiat model, which Henry Bzeih said is a “natural progression“. Microsoft views the world of metaverse development from the public’s perspective, in an empowering mode. The company strives to organize the product and solution regions “edge-to-cloud” of its customers.
The problem is to be able to offer the sale and purchase of metaverse-compatible cars in the American market. The whole process is somewhat tedious, as one must conform to the idea of independent franchise owners who generally have difficulty understanding the metaverse. According to Henry Bzeih, the solution is to create a hybrid version that gives businesses the assurance and security that the considerable amount of money invested in physical institutions will not be wasted.
The tech giant has also been in the news recently for banning its customers from mining crypto-currencies on its online services without prior written permission.
While the company did not provide information about the ban, in an update on Azure, it said that crypto-currency mining in all online services has been stopped to protect the partner ecosystem. However, this is not the first time a major tech company has banned crypto mining on its online platform. Google also has an equivalent policy that does not allow people to mine without prior written permission.
In addition, Amazon’s AWS also restricts crypto-currency mining for its 12-month free trial. Customers could be charged a fee if they choose to mine on AWS and their account could be suspended.
Previously, Microsoft-owned video game Minecraft banned non-fungible tokens (NFTs) in its game to ensure a safe and inclusive experience for players.
