Meta Work Web Version of Horizon Worlds

Post a Comment
Meta may not require you to wear a headset to experience Horizon Worlds. The company, led by Mark Zuckerberg, plans to bring its own metaverse platform to the web.

This was revealed by CTO Meta Andrew "Boz" Bosworth in a tweet, Thursday (14/4/2022). Currently, the platform is only available on its Quest VR headset.

The web version isn't the only thing in the works. Meta vice president for Horizon, Vivek Sharma, told The Verge that he is working on bringing Horizon to mobile later this year and is in early discussions to bring it to game consoles.

In either case, it's unclear how Horizon Worlds, an app designed specifically for virtual reality (VR), will work on very different platforms.

It is possible that mobile and web users are simply spectators. So they can't create the world or be involved in all the interactions.

Horizon is the Meta brand for the metaverse VR suite of apps, including Horizon Worlds, Horizon Workrooms, Horizon Venues, and the soon to be launched Horizon Home. Each uses a Meta Avatar and currently requires an active Facebook account for access.

The way Worlds works is similar to Rec Room. The platform allows users to create games and social experiences in VR by using controllers to place and manipulate shapes, and use a visual scripting system to add dynamic functionality.
