Facebook Spaces lets you and your friends hang out in VR
The future of social VR ... well, according to Facebook
Facebook's goal has always been to bring you closer to your friends, whether that's through products like Messenger or simply by your ever-updating news feed. Now, Facebook is taking that goal of connection one step further by introducing Facebook Spaces to the Oculus Rift Store.
Facebook Spaces was a product CEO Mark Zuckerberg unveiled at Oculus Connect 3 earlier this year; however, it wasn't until today's F8 conference that we got an extended look at Facebook's "first social VR product."
The idea behind the software is to bring you - well, a digital avatar version of you - into virtual reality where you can spend time with friends and family in virtual chat rooms. These chat rooms can be altered in several unique ways like immersing you in a 360-degree video or engulfing you in a different environment like the outer reaches of earth's atmosphere.
