Designed for easy collaboration and team building, these virtual spaces aren’t just meeting rooms but are interactive environments where work is completed. Contrary to traditional conference calls which depend on one-way communication, such as screen sharing spaces, these collaborative spaces are built for the community, productivity, and connection to hybrid or remote teams.
These virtual spaces are simple to access and accessible to anyone who has a standard PC, Mac or browser. They also have a rich set of features that make them powerful collaboration tools. Some of them even let you create a more immersive experience using VR. Some even have a complex world-building editor and others offer simple avatars that have floating emojis that communicate sentiments during conversations and presentations.
