Facebook in Virtual Reality
At OC3 (Oculus Connect 3 is Oculus’ third annual virtual reality developer conference) Mark Zuckerberg announced a variety of new social features and APIs for the Oculus platform to make it easier and more compelling for people to connect in VR.
He also said :
“Today, we’re excited to share that Oculus Rooms and Parties are now live on Gear VR and will come to Rift in early 2017!”
From the above video that we show, we all understood how Facebook will look, not far away from our present time ….
Are we ready ?
Oculus Rooms and the Group App Launcher—Playing with Friends
Oculus Rooms let friends gather in the same virtual space to hang out, watch videos, play mini-games, and launch apps together with the Group App Launcher.
Oculus Parties – Connecting with Friends.
Parties allow people to connect up to four people on a group voice call, regardless of what they’re doing in VR. They can invite their friends to join a Party even if they aren’t in VR. Once friends join the call, they’ll be able to swap stories or easily coordinate a virtual meetup.
Whether the Party decides to hang out in Rooms or explore separate apps solo, Parties ensure that people can always communicate with friends in VR.
So, finally we will have a lot of Virtual Dioramas to get in.
