On the way to the metaverse, Meta-Facebook has launched a unique account to access 3D worlds whether it be playing, chatting or working. A few days ago, Mark Zuckerberg introduced Meta accounts, a new type of profile required from January 1, 2023 to use Oculus Quest virtual reality headsets.

From next year, the same account will be the only one available to subscribe to Horizon, the Meta metaverse, thus excluding access with previous Oculus accounts and with the current Facebook ones. In fact, the Meta account is not a social media profile but allows you to log into VR devices and view and manage purchased apps in one place. “In the future, we will extend the functionality of the Meta account so that it can be used to access other Meta devices and services,” the group explained on the official blog. The will is therefore to create unique Meta profiles, which can be used both for the metaverse and for using Facebook and Instagram, as well as the other platforms of the American giant.

“You can already add your Meta account to the same Facebook or Instagram Account Center to unlock connected experiences through Meta technologies, such as finding your Facebook friends to play with in VR or chat with friends on Messenger. Once created of a Meta account, you will be asked to create a Meta Horizon profile. This will be the social profile in VR and elsewhere, to be customized as you prefer. ” Exactly two years ago, Facebook had decided to unify Oculus accounts, specific for virtual reality, with those of Facebook, in order to simplify the registration process. As for privacy, the update gives the possibility to decide to appear on Horizon in private mode, so as not to be contacted by those who are not already friends. This will still be able to see important information, such as avatar likeness, profile picture and username.
