Ex-Google CEO Eric Schmidt: There’s Not an Agreement on What Metaverse Is

Former Google CEO Eric Schmidt conveyed indifference and a bit of confusion when asked how the metaverse might affect global relations. He said he’s unsure how the future collection of digital worlds will actually affect regular people’s lives day-to-day.

“There’s not an agreement on what the metaverse is, even though one company has changed its name in anticipation of defining it,” Schmidt said on Tuesday, alluding to Facebook’s name change to Meta in October 2021.
