WhatsApp is all set to make the concept of calling and messaging in virtual reality real with the help of Meta Quest in recently launched companion mode.
WhatsApp, which already has billions of users all across the world, continuously works on providing a better experience to its users. For that purpose, their team always works on launching new innovative exciting features for its users. And to continue its legacy of offering something different to its users, it is all set to step into the Virtual reality through Meta Quest.
WhatsApp developers are actually working on developing the ability to connect the WhatsApp service to Meta Quest. Although, this feature will be only available for WhatsApp beta users at first. And they will announce it very soon for their users. As many of you already know, Meta Quest is actually a new series of virtual reality headsets.
They were previously popular by the name of Oculus. However, in recent times a new series of VR headsets has been launched by the name of Meta Quest which has already been liked by many users. Meta, the manufacturer of these VR headsets, has launched their new headset at a very affordable price.
But now the real question that arises here is how WhatsApp and Meta Quest can be linked. As there are still some users who are unknown with use of these virtual reality headsets. So, to avoid any ambiguity WhatsApp is working to provide its users a smooth and easy-to-understand experience.
So, they will allow people to connect their existing WhatsApp account with Meta Quest virtual reality headsets as soon as their mobile phones, tablets and computers will be connected with this virtual reality headset. In fact, users will be enabled to see their Virtual Reality headset in the connected devices list.
Hence, it is very clear that using WhatsApp in virtual reality will be only possible in newly introduced companion mode. This companion mode was introduced to link a single WhatsApp account to multiple devices. And in the list of these multiple devices Meta Quest Headsets will be an add on feature.
Well, it’s too early to predict how users will feel about this new feature because it is still unclear that how they will experience it. However, it is to be assumed that people will be able to see and read messages without performing any hand gestures.
Which is going to be a reason of keen interest for users to use WhatsApp through Meta Quest. Because already Ray Ban Stories smart glasses enabled users to read messages without performing any hand movement. And even allows them to send end-to-end encrypted messages very easily in less than no minute. This means that it will be very interesting to know how this feature in WhatsApp will function in the future.
Because the parent company of WhatsApp and Meta Quest, Meta is on its mission to spread the concept of Virtual reality throughout the world. And linking WhatsApp with Meta Quest will be a milestone for them. Despite the fact that, this feature is not ready to launch for users. But still this news has succeeded to create buzz in the whole WhatsApp using community.
So, we have to wait until it launches among the users to look at the experiences of people.
