Mark Zuckerberg had a vision. Since the parent company of Facebook changed its name to Meta, it was made clear that the focus was on virtual worlds. However, what was supposed to be the next big step in the world of technology hasn’t quite taken off. Now, Meta wants to make the metaverse more accessible, and to do that, it will expand to our mobile devices.
That’s right: you won’t need virtual reality glasses to explore Meta Horizon Worlds, the company’s famous metaverse, anymore. Through Meta’s official blog, they’ve announced that Super Rumble, one of the worlds within their metaverse, is now available as early access through the Meta Quest app. It’s also available on web browsers through horizon.meta.com.
Meta plans to gradually roll out more Meta Horizon Worlds for availability on any Internet-connected device. With this new approach, the conglomerate led by Mark Zuckerberg aims to attract all kinds of users to its platform, which is currently not in its best shape.
According to Meta’s provided numbers, their metaverse manages to gather around 200,000 players on average each month. However, users keep reporting that they encounter empty worlds, and many describe it as a “failure” for the company.
Nevertheless, this new initiative by Meta hopes to make Horizon Meta Worlds a much more accessible option for all kinds of people, whether they have virtual reality glasses or not. If you want to experience Zuckerberg’s metaverse, remember that you’ll need to install the Meta Quest app on your mobile or tablet first.
