    Microsoft, Google, and others cancel in-person presence at CES: Microsoft Corp said on Friday it will not participate in person at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2022 in Las Vegas, joining a list of companies opting not to have a physical presence at next month’s event on concerns over the rapid spread of the Omicron Covid-19 variant.

    The US software giant added that it will continue to participate at CES remotely, according to an emailed statement. The Verge was the first to report on Friday that Microsoft will not participate physically AT CES.

    Several other companies including US automaker General Motors Co, Alphabet Inc.’s Google, and its self-driving auto-technology company Waymo, Facebook parent Meta Platforms Inc, Twitter Inc, Lenovo Group, AT&T Inc, and Amazon.com Inc dropped in-person attendance plans earlier this week.

    CES officials on Thursday said the event will still be held in person January 5-8 with “strong safety measures in place,” which include vaccination requirements, masking, and availability of Covid-19 tests.
