Facebook has surely evolved! From a place to make up for lost time with loved ones to a place where you can hang out with you pals in a virtual world. Yes, you heard that right! Like, Comment and Share are so off beat now!
Dedicated social VR apps have been popping up for a few years. So here we are, introducing Facebook’s new virtual reality app Spaces now allows you to hang out with your far away friends in style. It creates a cool digital avatar based on your actual Facebook profile photo, and interact as that person in a virtual world where they can hang out and interact with other real-world friends.
However, currently the company has only launched the beta version of the application. Let’s get an overview of how it works.

How it Works?
With Facebook Spaces application, users will be required to gear up an Oculus Rift headset and Touch controllers. Then they can sign up to three individuals in the virtual play area and perform different exercises together, for example, watching recordings or clicking pictures.

What all you Can do with it?
The app is currently available on the Oculus Store and enables users to:
- Create and customize your avatars.
- Let’s you draw with a virtual marker.
- View Facebook content including 360-degree photos and videos.
- Use Messenger calling to invite friends.
- Take advantage of the app’s selfie stick.
So now you can meet your friends and family living abroad, those who we can’t meet often and would actually like to. Use it to take photographs of your experience and share the recollections you make in VR with your Facebook buddies.
Regardless of whether you need to flaunt your most recent 3-D drawing showstopper, or play a stunning 360 video your companion would love or simply invest energy talking, it’s one of the most ideal approaches to be at the time together, from anyplace.
Well, now it makes sense why Facebook launched Oculus, right?
