Facebook Launches Oculus Quest 2 VR Headset

Facebook’s also working on new Workplace features within VR[6], which, given the shift to remote work, could also be a key selling point for the technology moving forward. 

As noted, VR has already seen a significant uptick in interest this year[7], which has enabled Facebook to put even more focus on its next level VR tools. The advanced system of the Quest 2 will facilitate more opportunities in this respect, and Facebook has already noted that it believes VR will be the future of social networking[8]

It could be the start of the next era, which will also, eventually, incorporate new marketing and outreach opportunities. It could be worth paying attention now, to ensure that you’re ahead of the trend.

The Quest 2 is available now, and starts at $299 USD.
