Meta’s ambition is to replace PCs with VR headsets, both in the office and at home.
During Meta’s Connect 2022 keynote presentation, Andrew “Boz” Bosworth, Meta’s chief technology officer, said: “Work is really the next major category of experiences that we want to unlock to bring VR to the next level.”
The company wants to make ‘mixed-reality work’ the new norm via the Meta Quest Pro, a $1,500 VR headset that can toggle between VR and augmented reality.
Zoom and Microsoft Teams will soon be available for use on the platform, and Microsoft would release Meta-compatible versions of Windows 365 and Office as well.
“Eventually, we think your Quest could be the only monitor you actually need,” Bosworth added.
