Meta, the company owned by Mark Zuckerberg and also overseeing Oculus, has decided to discontinue the service that allowed Meta Quest users to view notifications from their mobile devices. Without this small yet practical function, many users might feel a slight step back in the user experience offered by Meta’s VR service.

This recently disabled feature will force VR glasses users to take off their devices to check if there are any important notifications on their smartphones. However, users of Quest 3 won’t face significant issues thanks to Mixed Reality features, allowing them to see the real world while wearing the glasses.

Goodbye to notifications in VR

As detailed in the latest Meta patch notes, Quest devices will no longer have the ability to display phone notifications, a feature that had been available since its activation in 2021. After two years of service, this functionality is now being removed from Meta’s VR headset software across different models.

Meta holds one of the largest markets in Virtual Reality. Since their acquisition of Oculus in the past, various VR headset models have steadily improved and expanded their capabilities. Currently, the Meta Quest 3 stands as their latest model, attracting widespread attention.

The Meta Quest 3, quite a sensation

It’s been just over a month since the new Meta Quest 3 emerged, VR goggles that have shown there’s still plenty of room for advancement in this technological field. The Meta Quest 3 represents a significant qualitative leap compared to its predecessor, the Meta Quest 2, positioning itself as the most powerful VR goggles of the current technological generation.

One of the most striking aspects of the Meta Quest 3, aside from its upgraded specifications, is Mixed Reality. Combining Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality features, it allows you to use your Meta Quest 3 goggles in your real environment, engaging in unique interactions with your surroundings. This mode isn’t just multimedia-oriented; it also offers an incredibly immersive gaming experience.
