We all love to spend time with our friends and families, but it’s impossible to be around physically with people we care about. Thanks to VR, Facebook just gave you a new way to connect with them without physically sitting next to each other. Spaces, a new VR app where you hang out with friends in a fun, interactive virtual environments as if you were in the same room.
You can be yourself in VR, all you need to do is to create an identity, avatar in Facebook Spaces, like when you create your avatar in Nintendo World, use any customization you like to make it looks like you, so that it helps people recognize you and make VR feel more like hanging out in person.
Then, just invite all your friends in! There are a lot of activities that you can do together, such as draw in the air with a virtual marker to create anything you can dream up.
You’ll also find the rich variety of Facebook content at your fingertips to view with friends in VR, including 360 videos and photos that can transport you to new places. You and your friends can relive personal memories from your own Timelines, or even make new ones as you explore things that interest you from people and Pages you follow.
And that is just the beginning, Facebook is working hard on bringing more features and fun into Spaces, and make it available through more platforms. In the future, it will continue to transform the way people around the world stay connected with their communities and those closest to them.
