The days when talking about the metaverse was talking about the future seem to be increasingly distant. The emergence of AI and the end of quarantine have led to a reassessment of the virtual reality market and its scope. Now, the company is focusing on improving AI and taking advantage of the potential that WhatsApp represents, and which it is beginning to explore and exploit.
In line with this new direction, Meta announced that its metaverse, Meta Horizon Worlds, will no longer require the exclusive use of branded or compatible virtual reality glasses. On the other hand, any device with iOS or Android will be enough to access this platform. This decision seeks to expand Meta’s user base, allowing interaction from mobile phones, tablets and computers, even through web browsers.
Accessibility is gradually expanding, initially in countries such as Canada, France, Iceland, Ireland, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States. In the future, Meta is expected to open the doors of its metaverse even further without the need for virtual reality glasses. To access this service, users can download the Meta app from the Play Store or visit the horizon.meta.com website and request access. Once granted, they will be able to immerse themselves in an initial world called “Super Rumble”, with plans to expand the offering to more worlds in the future.
