Facebook prepares to give the most important jump in its history… to reach metaverse. It confirmed it yesterday its creator, Mark Zuckerberg, announcing the new name of the brand: goal.
This change will not only affect Facebook and its social networks, but also to associated products and licenses. What does this imply? As a series of changes for Oculus quest, the peripheral VR.
As it confirms Andrew Bosworth on his official Facebook blog, the Oculus product line will be called Meta Quest at the beginning of 2022. In addition, there will be some important changes.
In the same way that the series of virtual reality products, the Oculus application will also adopt the name of Oculus, and will no longer be mandatory to use a Facebook account to use the VR accessory.
All we have a strong bond with the Oculus brand, and this was a very difficult decision to take. While withdrawing the name, I can assure you that Oculus s original vision remains deeply rooted, Bosworth confirms.
You also have to highlight another two changes: The Facebook video system will be called Meta Portal, and some Oculus products will adopt the name of Meta Horizon, in reference to metaverse.
Huge changes are not expected beyond the aforementioned. Meta Quest users will not have to use Facebook account, because now all goal services will be integrated without the need for the social network created by Zuckerberg.
I measure that we have heard the comments of the virtual reality community in a broader way, we are working on new ways to log in to Quest that will not require a Facebook account, which will land at some point next year..
They have not yet specified which ways will have to log in to Meta Quest, but it is certain that Facebook will no longer be needed. As a data, the social network will keep your name for the public, although the brand if you will experience this name change.
Another great announcement that occurred yesterday on Facebook Connect was Project Cambria. It is not an Oculus Quest 3, but a high-end model for the current peripheral. It will focus on the metaverse.
The expansion of goal quest will continue in 2022, along with name change. One of the exclusive video games of the peripheral is Resident Evil 4 VR (here Analysis), and next year GTA San Andreas VR will come… almost nothing.
