Quest v41 Adds Horizon Home To Meet Friends In Social VR
Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg formally announced Quest v41 includes the ability to invite friends to your virtual home “as soon as you put on your headset.”
Horizon Home has been the announced name for the social feature since last year when Meta revealed it would be coming to Quest. Over the years Facebook tested and retired multiple VR apps aimed at meeting with a small group of friends, including Oculus Rooms and Facebook Spaces. More recently the company released Horizon Workrooms for work meetings and Horizon Worlds for creating public social experiences inside VR. Meta is still in the midst of a restructuring process that includes cancelled projects and changing policies, like the promise that Quest will drop the requirement it be connected to a Facebook account.
