Get started with immersive spaces in Microsoft Teams


  • Teams immersive spaces are available as part of the public preview program and might undergo further changes before being released publicly. To get access to this and other upcoming features, switch to Teams public preview.

  • To learn more about Microsoft Mesh, see Microsoft Mesh overview.

  • If you're not seeing the Immersive space option in the View drop-down menu, it could be one of the following reasons:

    • You're in the new Teams. We are currently in the process of rolling out to the new Teams client, so if you can't see the Immersive space button yet, it should appear in the next few days.

    • You don't have the right app permission policy assigned in the Teams Admin Center. Check with your IT admin to see if the Teams app permission policy is allowing or blocking Mesh Immersive spaces for you. If your admin made changes to the app permission policies, it may take up to 24 hours for the Immersive space option to appear. See set up immersive spaces in Teams.

    • Immersive spaces in Microsoft Teams are currently available on the Teams desktop app for Windows. It's not yet supported on Teams desktop app for Mac, Teams on web, and Teams mobile. For more information, see immersive spaces release notes.

Connect like never before in a three-dimensional (3D) immersive space, helping virtual meetings and events feel more like face-to-face connections. Immersive spaces have unique attributes that create a perception of being physically together in a 3D digital space, including spatial interaction, co-presence, and immersion.

It makes building relationships easier by bringing the power of Mesh into people's everyday workplace. With just one click, you can easily transform your virtual meeting into a 3D experience with immersive spaces in Microsoft Teams.

Immersive spaces work well for these types of meetings:

  • Weekly scrums or standups with your team

  • Brainstorming sessions with multiple break-out groups

  • Casual get-togethers or celebrations for morale

  • Virtual networking events across multiple groups

  • Onboarding meet-and-greets for new team members

Note: The following licenses support Mesh immersive spaces: Teams Essentials, Microsoft 365 Business Basic, Microsoft 365 Business Standard, Microsoft 365 Business Premium, Microsoft 365 E3/E5, and Office 365 E1/E3/E5.

Meet on a PC or with a Meta Quest VR device
Both platforms encourage you to explore and enjoy our three-dimensional environments, and using a Quest device provides a more embodied and immersive experience.

Use immersive spaces in Microsoft Teams
Join an immersive space directly from within a Teams meeting through the View menu option.

Note: If you don't see the option to join an Immersive space in the View menu, see How to fix app, audio, and GPU issues for immersive spaces.

Socialize and connect within a three-dimensional environment
Have multiple, simultaneous conversations and communicate effectively in subgroups without talking over each other. Immersive spaces in Teams enable collaboration for all your meeting attendees, even if some of them join from outside the immersive space. If you join from a standard 2D Teams meeting experience, you can see, hear, and interact with others in an immersive space. If any participant shares their screen, the content is visible to all meeting attendees.

Walk out of the meeting zone to have side conversations

When you join an immersive space, you'll start in the meeting zone where you can hear and talk with non-immersive participants. If you walk outside of the meeting zone, participants in non-immersive won't be able to hear you, enabling you to have side conversation with other immersive participants.

Learn more about meeting zones and spatial audio.

Join as your Avatar
As you enter the immersive space, choose an avatar that you’ve already built for standard Teams meetings or create a new one. It’s easy to customize your avatar to reflect your appearance, style, or mood for the day.

  • A scheduled meeting through Teams or Outlook

  • When you start a meeting by Meet now

  2. Go to your Calendar on the left side of Teams.

  3. Go to the meeting you'll be joining, then select Join.

  7. Once you’re ready to join the meeting, select Join now to enter the meeting room. Once there, you’ll see other participants that did not join the immersive space in the virtual gallery. Any screen shared will be visible on the virtual stage.

Use Teams meeting features in an immersive space
