Facebook has launched an “open beta” for Horizon Workrooms. This is a virtual meeting room with avatars, spatial audio, a whiteboard and more on the Oculus Quest.

The launch a hint from Mark Zuckerberg in July. The CEO said Facebook would evolve from a social media platform to a metaverse company in 5-10 years. Zuckerberg described the metaverse as an “embodied Internet.”
Horizon allows up to 16 people to enter a workspace together in VR. 34 more people can participate via a video call without wearing a VR headset.
People in the VR room can take turns using a giant shared whiteboard or using their personal drawing pads. Horizon’s desktop app also lets users broadcast a live feed of your computer screen to the virtual world. A virtual representation of your physical keyboard will appear below your screen.
Facebook’s Andrew Bosworth said, “It could be the most immersive VR app out there.”
