The launch of the Apple Vision Pro, the company’s first space computer, has generated a lot of interest. Although not all available applications have been announced, far from it, we do know something about some that will be available on the day of the launch. Productivity apps, games, streaming apps, and other options that will make the Vision Pro a device capable of almost everything. Let’s review the list of which apps will be available and which ones won’t.

Several confirmed applications for the Vision Pro

In the era of space computing inaugurated by Apple Vision Pro, all applications are called to a radical transformation. One of the categories that will be most influenced by this is productivity apps. With them, the device will improve the way we interact with our daily work tools. And of those tools, several have been confirmed to arrive on Vision Pro on the day of its launch:

  • Microsoft 365: The office toolset that includes Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. The specific details of how it will be adapted to Vision Pro are still unknown, but Apple has already confirmed its presence.
  • Fantastical: A smart calendar and reminder app known for its intuitive interface and ease of use.
  • JigSpace: An educational platform that uses augmented reality to learn about various topics through interactive 3D models.
  • Slack: One of the most well-known and highly valued business communication tools in its field for how it facilitates team collaboration.
  • Freeform: Apple’s digital whiteboard app, ready for brainstorming or organizing our ideas clearly.
  • iWork: Apple’s office suite, consisting of Keynote, Numbers, and Pages, will also be available for free on Vision Pro, ready for our presentations, spreadsheets, and text documents.

Beyond productivity, the Apple Vision Pro is ready to revolutionize the way we communicate. With confirmed communication applications specifically tailored for this new environment, such as FaceTime, Zoom, Cisco Webex, and Microsoft Teams, the Vision Pro promises to take virtual interactions to a level of realism and effectiveness never seen before.

Entertainment and leisure also find their place in the Apple Vision Pro, redefining the way we consume multimedia content and enjoy video games. With streaming apps like Apple TV+, Disney+, and Max already confirmed, we will be able to immerse ourselves in a world of movies and series with an unprecedented visual and sound experience.

In addition, support for Apple Arcade and compatibility with game controllers like those of the PS5 and Xbox open the door to a universe of interactive and immersive games.

Despite the wide variety of available applications, the absence of Google apps stands out, especially considering their prevalence on iOS devices. Google apps, such as YouTube, Google Docs, and Google Earth, could greatly benefit from the augmented reality environment offered by Vision Pro. However, it is clear that the lack of confirmation does not mean their absence, Google seems to be focusing on its own Android XR platform in collaboration with Samsung. We will see what happens once Vision Pro has hit the market.

In any case, it is clear that the Apple Vision Pro, since its first demos in Apple Stores, promises to be a pioneering device in the user experience with applications adapted to spatial computing. The complete list of apps that we will see during the launch is still unknown, but among those that we have been able to confirm and all those that will be added later, it is clear that the outlook is really good.
