Mark Zuckerberg Confirms New Meta VR Headset Will Launch In October

If you own any kind of  Meta VR Headset smartphone, you’re probably familiar with Facebook. Founded in 2004 by Mark Zuckerberg, this social media platform has gone on to become one of the most successful in history, boasting more than 2 billion users worldwide. If that number surprises you as much as it surprised Zuckerberg, you can bet it will get your attention when he announces the product he’s been working on in secret for the past two years—a Meta VR headset.

What do we know about the headsets?

The world has been anticipating the arrival of this headset for years, and finally, it seems like we’re going to get a glimpse soon! Details have been sparse about what the devices will look like when they launch, but one thing is certain:

they are being made by Meta Company and they are close. Mark Zuckerberg announced on Tuesday that the product would be launched in October.

I am excited to finally share a little bit more about why I’m so excited about what’s coming, he wrote in his post.

Today I’m announcing that we have a new goal: to help one billion people experience virtual reality in their lifetime. Through Oculus and Facebook platforms, we’ll work with developers and partners to  Meta VR Headset make VR apps for games, entertainment, communications, media, art, education, and more. This will become an infrastructure for many other industries.

The battle of the next-gen AR/VR headwear begins

Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg has confirmed that a new version of the company’s mixed reality glasses, dubbed Oculus Quest, will be launching in October. He announced his Facebook Meta VR Headset profile, adding: You can game, watch movies and live stream just like you do today – but now, you’ll also be able to travel across space and time. The new device is not an update to the $399 Oculus Rift and it won’t require an internet connection to function (it still needs to be plugged into a PC).

Many companies are betting big on AR/VR products as they are seen as the next generation of computing interfaces.

Facebook’s main competitor in the AR/VR space is Microsoft and its Xbox division. The company has so far released its HoloLens, a headset that isn’t as powerful but is similarly easy to use with no setup required. At $3,000 per unit, it is much more expensive than Facebook’s product, however.

Is Microsoft’s Hololens 2.0 on the horizon?

We may see the next generation of Microsoft’s Hololens 2.0 on the horizon soon if recent reports are to be believed. As announced at Oculus Connect 5 this past September, developer kits will be available in 2019 and a general release date was not confirmed at that time. However, this report from Business Insider indicates that developers should expect them early in 2020. Mark Zuckerberg also confirmed a new Meta VR headset for launch in October of this year.

The first iteration of Microsoft’s Hololens has been fairly limited in its use. Only developers were able to purchase and use it, and it did not provide a very wide field of view due to only having two cameras on board.

According to an announcement made at Oculus Connect 5, developer kits are going to be made available in 2019, with a general release date still unconfirmed. This new report from Business Insider states that developer kits should arrive early next year.

Mark Zuckerberg also recently confirmed a new Meta VR headset for launch in October. This will be made available for sale to consumers and is intended to provide higher-quality graphics and a wider field of view. It will include four wide-angle cameras, instead of just two like on Microsoft’s Hololens.

The report from Business Insider does not confirm whether or not we can expect to see a headset from Microsoft at launch, but it seems very likely that one is on its way later in 2020.

Why the timing is right

In a post on Facebook earlier today, Mark Zuckerberg confirms the new Meta VR headset will launch in October. It is the first new hardware from his company since 2016. And it is worth noting that for Facebook – and its sister company Oculus – this could be one of the most important launches in the history of their respective companies.

Facebook‘s founder and chief executive said virtual reality has already begun to live up to its promises as a way to more deeply connect with people across different global regions, serving as a great tool for both storytelling and community building. But with virtual reality now so accessible, Facebook also needs new ways to keep users Meta VR Headset coming back again and again. This means innovation, he said.
