Qualcomm, Microsoft work together on metaverse apps

Qualcomm is working with Microsoft to create custom chips for lightweight AR glasses that can be used by consumers and businesses for metaverse apps.

The announcement was made by Qualcomm CEO Cristiano Amon during a press conference at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Qualcomm is one of the few tech companies that have not cancelled its in-person participation at the CES this year.

Ruben Caballero, the corporate vice president for mixed reality at Microsoft, said in a statement that the goal is to inspire and empower others to work together to develop a metaverse future that is grounded in trust and innovation.

Neither Microsoft nor Qualcomm gave any more information about when these new chips and headsets might be available.
