Meta: the doors to the metaverse open on Android and the web

Will the smartphone save the metaverse? Perhaps it was Meta’s hope that began the rollout of Horizon Worlds on mobile and web!

So obviously, Explore Horizon Worlds — the main incarnation of the Metaverse — on a smartphone screen or in the web browser of a computer is an experience that has little to do with that of a virtual reality headset on the nose. The immersion is not the same in 2D! However, for Meta it is a way of opening its virtual universe to millions of new users. And by the company’s own admission, it’s becoming urgent.

The metaverse must be “ available for everyone “, explains Meta, no matter what device you use to access it. Promised for a long time, this compatibility of Horizon Worlds with mobile platforms and the web is currently being deployed, starting with the availability of the shooter Super Rumble via the Meta Quest app on Android and on the web (at this address). iOS support is expected in the coming weeks. Please note, this is still early access, you must register for a waiting list.

Other “worlds” will be offered in the coming months, Meta thus plans the possibility of attending stand-ups, concerts and other events with his friends. During this mobile and web optimization, the company has redesigned some functions (mute, pause) so that they are easier to access on this type of screen. And the security features are the same from one platform to another.
