Oculus Launches “Horizon Workrooms” ... Facebook to become the Metaverse Company ... Part of Our New Series on Digital Accommodation
The way we work is changing. More people are working remotely, more people want flexible work options, and more people are re-thinking what it means to be in an office. But without the right connective tools, remote work still has plenty of challenges. Working without colleagues around can feel isolating at times, and brainstorming with other people just doesn’t feel the same if you’re not in the same room.
That’s why Oculus has launched “Horizon Workrooms”. Mark Zuckeberg plans to develop Facebook as a “Metaverse Company”.
Workrooms is the flagship collaboration experience that lets people come together to work in the same virtual room, regardless of physical distance. It works across both virtual reality and the web. It is designed to improve a team’s ability to collaborate, communicate, and connect remotely, through the power of Virtual Reality.
Teams can get together to brainstorm or whiteboard an idea, work on a document, hear updates, hang out and socialize, or simply have better conversations that flow more naturally.
Workrooms brings some of the best new technologies together for the first time into one experience on Quest 2. Using features like mixed-reality desk and keyboard tracking, hand tracking, remote desktop streaming, video conferencing integration, spatial audio, and the new Oculus Avatars, have created a different kind of productivity experience.
“We’ve been using Workrooms to collaborate here at Facebook already, and we think it’s one of the best ways to work if you can’t be physically together.”
Ark Analyst Nick Grous says “Although it is not a game-changing must-have application yet, Horizon Workshops does provide a glimpse into the future or, at least, Facebook’s hope for the future.”
