According to Facebook’s head of product (Chief of Product Services), Chris Cox at Recode’s Code Media Conference in Dana Point, Facebook’s VR app (Virtual Reality App) is coming out soon. However, he did not get to describe in detail, all he said was that they are working on the app for VR”. This leaves us with imagination of how the world will be, where with the help of an app users can be able to share their current environment with others.
It is just less than a year after closing its Oculus VR (Virtual Reality) acquisition and then reveals its vision to develop versions of app to be used in VR environment. According to this social networking giant, when he purchased oculus, he saw an opportunity more than just videos but to communications and the rest – like building versions of his apps on virtual reality.
Cox says, “You realize, when you’re in it, that you’re looking at the future, and it’s going to be awesome. When you’re in Facebook, you’re just sending around these bits of experience — a photo, a video, a thought,” while with Virtual Reality App, you could be “sending a fuller picture.”
“Imagine being able to share not just moments with your friends online, but entire adventures and experiences,” this were the words of Mark Zuckerberg when Facebook bought Oculus.
