Oculus Rift Introduces Facebook Live-Streaming and Public Homes in VR


Things have been looking better and better for Oculus Rift ever since Facebook acquired the company. Facebook believes that VR technology is the next step in technology evolution and therefore, Facebook is investing lots of revenue into enhancing Oculus Rift’s performances with new features and software tweaks.

With that being said, the reason why we are talking about Oculus Rift today is because Facebook has revealed that a brand-new update will arrive during the upcoming days and that it will give users the ability to stream their view directly on Facebook Live.

Stream Oculus Rift on Facebook Live

The new feature that makes it possible for Oculus Rift users to stream their view on Facebook Live has been highlighted during CES 2019 and it looks great. The best thing about this feature is that it’s also going to be supported by hundreds of third-party VR apps such as Dead & buried and Echo VR. Nonetheless, this is not the only feature that Oculus Rift users should get ready for.

Public Homes in VR

Another interesting feature that Oculus Rift’s new update is going to introduce is Public Homes. This feature is still in the beta phase and it lets users create Public Homes in the VR environment where they can invite friends to join in.

Everyone who watched a YouTube clip of VR Chat knows that this place can get quite toxic and therefore, Facebook’s developers have made sure to equip Public Homes with the ability to mute or kick out certain players that are being aggressive.

Update Release Date

Facebook announced that Oculus Rift is going to receive this highly anticipated update later this month. However, eager Oculus Rift users can always sign up on the Public Test Chanel and get to access them starting today.
