Meta’s Latest Update To Horizon Workrooms Solves Its Biggest Pain Point
Meta accounts are now supported in Horizon Workrooms, essentially clearing the biggest roadblock to the software’s adoption as remote work and meeting solution.
Since launch in August 2021 Horizon Workrooms used a separate Workrooms account and team management system for logging into the service and managing access. This sign-in flow threw up roadblocks and caused confusion for people who wanted to join meetings across Quest 2 VR headsets and traditional video chat. The former required a Facebook account at the time, meaning in many instances people who wanted to use the service and its innovative features might be using the same email address to login to multiple accounts from the same company. Now, there’s just the Meta account to use for headset log-in or via a computer, with permission granted by admins to join specific Workrooms.
