The sites started in 2018 even before Horizon Worlds. It was initially known as Oculus Venues for Oculus Go. The app has been further enhanced for the first Oculus Quest headset. The Venues social VR environment is similar in style and function to Horizon Worlds and involves cartoon-like avatars moving through a 3D environment and even able to interact with each other. Horizon Worlds is a complete VR universe that hosts large-scale activities, while Venues is specifically for events that primarily include video streams, movies, comedy shows, concerts, or sporting events. Horizon lets you discover new places and experiences with your friends, create your own unique worlds, and even form teams to compete in action-packed games.
By creating dedicated spaces for Venues inside Horizon World, metaverse users will now be able to catch up on their favorite marquee performances ranging from concerts to live sporting events or even meditation sessions and comedy clubs. They will even be able to organize their meetings in Horizon Worlds.
Location programming in Horizon Worlds will be open to all users over the age of 18 in the United States and Canada starting June 6. Users who are not in the United States and Canada or who are between the ages of 13 and 17 will lose access to venue programming once the standalone Venues app is retired on June 6. However, users will still be able to access highlights as well as replays of events in Venues on Oculus TV.
Meta says access to Horizon Worlds will expand to other countries this summer, allowing more users outside of the US and Canada to create their own metaverse worlds, make new friends in VR and access the Venues lineup in Horizon Worlds.
Meta’s biggest and most expensive VR event to date was a live-streamed concert by rock band Foo Fighters that performed at the Super Bowl last February. However, the Venues app has been plagued with technical issues and has been optimized for conventional 2D screens rather than VR.
Along with locations and worlds, the metaverse vision of Meta also includes other building blocks such as the Horizon Workrooms and the Horizon Home Lounge. Sooner or later, expect these services to be merged into Horizon Worlds as well, contributing to Meta’s vision of a seamless and comprehensive Metaverse.
