The new update of Meta’s VR viewers, Quest V41, has introduced a new way of being with friends. A virtual space in which to meet in the form of an avatar, to chat, to watch virtual reality content together, to play with various apps developed for Meta Quest.

A more intimate version of the social in VR Horizon Worlds, which allows you to create entire worlds in which to meet and have fun together. And much more informal than Horizon Workrooms, instead, designed for meetings and meetings for those who work remotely. Horizon Home, as the name implies, is one true and own home in VR.

To demonstrate the capabilities of this new platform, Mark Zuckerberg met the climber Alex Honnold. Honnold recently launched the virtual reality film The Soloist VRwhich the climber and the CEO of Meta looked at together in the metaverse.

Zuckerberg said, “I met the legendary climber @alexhonnold in the new Horizon Home, launched with the Quest v41 update to bring social presence into your virtual home as soon as you put on the headset. Invite friends to watch videos together or join apps right from your virtual home. Other options for personalizing the home space are under development. Also, take a look at Alex’s 360 film, The Soloist VR, which takes you to 1000 meters of free climbing in the Dolomites! “
