Facebook launches Spaces VR app

Facebook launched a new VR app that allows friends to hang out and interact in virtual spaces at the company’s F8 developer conference in San Jose yesterday, as noted in an article posted on the Facebook Newsroom.

Titled Facebook Spaces, the new virtual reality application for the Oculus Rift enables users to create a personalised avatar and invite and interact with other users as if they were sitting in the same room.

Speaking about the new app, Rachel Franklin, Head of Social VR for Facebook said:

‘We want Facebook Spaces to be a comfortable place for everyone. You have control of your experience, including the ability to pause at any time. Pausing moves you into a quiet space where you can take a break away from other people and activities. You can also choose to mute your friends or remove them from your space. Facebook Spaces is all about connecting with friends and family that you know and trust, and we’re committed to making VR a positive place for all.’

The Facebook Spaces beta is available to download now from the Oculus Store.
