Meta has begun expanding the Horizon Worlds metaverse beyond VR headsets, opening early access to the first world on mobile devices and computers.
According to the statement, a small number of users can now enter the Super Rumble game space through the Meta Quest Android app. A version for iOS devices will be released in the coming weeks.
Access is also possible on the Horizon Worlds website via any web browser.
“While Quest headsets are the most immersive way to participate in the metaverse, we believe there should be multiple entry points. Bringing worlds to more surfaces is a step towards realizing this concept and opening up the experience to more people,” Meta said.
In the announcement, the company emphasized that the metaverse uses the same security features for mobile and web as on Quest, including teen protection.
All versions of Horizon Worlds are free, and anyone over 13 years old can participate in the virtual space. At the time of writing, the app is only supported in Canada, France, Iceland, Ireland, Spain, UK and US.
The company intends to gradually expand early access to the metaverse in mobile and web versions based on the feedback and experience received.
“As we roll out more worlds over the next few months, you’ll be able to hang out with friends, laugh with them at comedy shows, and enjoy free concerts and events from any connected device,” Meta said.
Let us recall that in April, human rights activists called on the company to introduce restrictions on the admission of minors to the metaverse.
