On October 11, Meta will host a new Connect event to provide updates on its many metaverse initiatives. Live breakout sessions for developers interested in creating VR experiences will follow the opening keynote at the free event, which will be webcast online.
“Last year, we revealed our plans for the metaverse and the next social computing era. This year, the firm said in a post on the Oculus blog, “we’ll give updates on the progress we’ve achieved and a glimpse at what’s coming up in the near and distant future.”
Connect is an annual developer conference that has been going on for nine years, ever since Oculus was a stand-alone business. This year’s event will probably be used by Meta to formally introduce the “Project Cambria” VR headset. In a recent Joe Rogan Experience interview, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg personally suggested that the new headgear will debut in October.
We could learn more about Horizon Worlds, the company’s collaborative VR platform that was debuted last year, during this year’s Connect digital event. Last month, Horizon Worlds expanded to additional European nations, and Mark Zuckerberg just said that “significant upgrades to Horizon and avatar visuals” will soon be available.
