Facebook advanced this Thursday towards the construction of its own ‘metaverse’ (an immersive space where the real and the virtual merge), by launching the beta version of the Horizon Workrooms application, which allows you to meet remotely and work in virtual offices under the shape of avatars.

“Workrooms is a virtual meeting space where you and your colleagues can better work together from anywhere. You can join a meeting in VR (virtual reality) as an avatar or dial in the virtual room from your computer via video call “, points out the statement from the company Oculus, manufacturer of the software and VR virtual reality glasses Oculus Quest 2, acquired by the technology giant in 2014.

Users of the new technology will be able to ‘bring’ tables, computers and keyboards with them to virtual rooms. In addition, each meeting will have white boards in which participants will share their ideas, writing or pasting images from their computers. Once the meeting is over, you can save those boards on the computer as an image file and share them.

Those who do not have virtual reality glasses will be able to connect with their colleagues by video call. In total, the application allows 16 people to meet simultaneously in VR format and 50 in a mixed call (with whom they connect via video call).

“Basically, it gives you the opportunity to sit around a table with people and work and do brainstorm. […] It’s an amazing experience where you feel like you’re right there with your colleagues, “summed up Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg in a interview con CBS News.
