People in Metaverse. Using Metaverse will make you feel like going to a virtual concert, traveling online, viewing or creating artwork, or buying or looking at digital clothing.
Facebook has changed the name of their company. The new name is ‘Meta’. Now the word ‘metaverse’ is being discussed in the technology world. The main reason behind this re-branding of Facebook is to make the site useful for the future through social media.
On October 26, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that from now on, all Facebook products will come under Meta Platforms Inc. This parent company will be called Meta for short. In 1992, Neil Stephenson first used the word “metavers” in his novel “Snow Crash”.
Let’s find out what is Facebook Metaverse, what will be done by Metaverse, will Facebook become a part of Metaverse completely, what is the future of Metaverse? – The answer to the question.
What is Facebook Metavers?
Simply put, the 3D version of the Internet is Metaverse. According to Mark Zuckerberg’s commentary, this metaver will allow you to enter the virtual environment directly instead of looking at the screen. Metavers will be a combination of numerous interconnected virtual communities, where you can view, work or play using virtual reality headsets, augmented reality glasses, smartphone apps or other devices. In addition, the popular part of the Internet, such as online shopping or social media, has a huge potential to be added to the metaverse.
How about Metaverse?
Metaverse is a new type of technology that will combine real life and virtual life. But in fact, the application of metaverse and its effectiveness?
Feelings like going to a virtual concert, traveling online, viewing or creating artwork, or buying or looking at digital clothing will match Metaverse. In addition to the ongoing epidemic due to the coronavirus work from home Metavers will come in handy. Employees will be able to join the virtual office with colleagues instead of video calling.
A few days ago, Facebook launched Horizon Workroom, an Oculus VR-powered meeting software for the company.
Using this VR headset, you can enter the virtual workplace using your own avatar. However, it is expected that it will take some time for the tech companies to come up with a solution on how the online platforms will be connected to each other.
Facebook and Metavers
Critics believe that Mark Zuckerberg has decided to change the name of his organization in order to cover up the ongoing conflict in the name of his organization. A few days ago, a former employee released several sensitive documents and recently anti-trust allegations were brought against Facebook.
Besides Facebook, Microsoft and chip maker Nvidia are working on Metavers. Richard Keris, vice president of Nvidia’s Omniverse platform, said many companies on the Internet are working to create a virtual world and environment. Just as there is a connection from one site to another on the Internet, users in another company’s world can enter the world created by one company through an open system.
Video game companies are not far behind. Popular game maker Epic Games has already managed to raise 1 billion in investment in its promise to build Metavers. In addition to the popular video games, anyone can get a 3D experience of learning, playing, creating or communicating at RoboLox.
Features of Facebook Metavers
Facebook’s planned metavers will open the door to multiple possibilities. Let’s find out what means it will be possible.
Horizon Home is like a virtual home, where other Metavers users can invite friends. You can chat, watch videos and play games together.
Many people already exercise using VR. Next year, Facebook’s parent company, Meta, will introduce new accessories that will make it easier to maintain virtual fitness.
We already know about virtual workplaces using VR. You can login to Metaverse Workplace with a separate professional account without a Facebook account. Those who work from home will be able to work virtually in their Metaverse workplace.
Gaming is going to be a huge part of Metaverse. Zuckerberg said the game, which ran on Facebook’s gaming platform, Quest, at the time of Connect Kinot, earned 100 million. Also in the upcoming version of Quest is going to come the popular game GTA San Andreas of Rockstar Games.
Call VR Messenger
A few days ago, Facebook announced VR support in the Messenger app. Quick messages can be sent to friends using the headset. Messenger audio calls via VR are also coming soon. Users will be able to travel to different places simultaneously using VR headsets on partner platforms.
Meta, the parent company of Facebook, is quite optimistic about this metavers idea. The question now is whether they can succeed in their goals.
