Creating Worlds – The Metaverse Standards

July 20, 2022

The metaverse standards are a set of guidelines and specifications that are used to ensure compatibility and interoperability between different metaverse platforms and applications. The metaverse is a shared virtual space where people can interact with each other and with the world in real time, and the metaverse standards are designed to ensure that different metaverse platforms can work together seamlessly and provide a consistent experience for users.

The metaverse standards are being developed by the Metaverse Working Group, a consortium of companies and organizations that are working together to define and promote the metaverse standards. The Metaverse Working Group was founded in 2019, and its members include companies such as Microsoft, Google, and Facebook, as well as organizations such as the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and the Open Metaverse Foundation.

The metaverse standards cover a wide range of areas, including user identity, avatars, virtual objects, virtual environments, and communication. These standards are intended to provide a common set of guidelines and specifications that can be used by different metaverse platforms and applications, to ensure compatibility and interoperability between them.

One of the key goals of the metaverse standards is to enable users to move seamlessly between different metaverse platforms, without having to create separate accounts or avatars for each platform. This will allow users to maintain a consistent identity and presence across the metaverse, and will enable them to interact with other users and the world in a consistent and seamless way.

The metaverse standards are still in development, and it will take some time before they are fully implemented and adopted by the broader metaverse community. However, the work of the Metaverse Working Group and the development of the metaverse standards are important steps towards building a more cohesive and interoperable metaverse. As the metaverse continues to grow and evolve, the metaverse standards will play a crucial role in ensuring that different metaverse platforms and applications can work together seamlessly and provide a consistent experience for users.
