Crypto Daily Spotlight
Meta plans on removing the need for Facebook IDs to log into Quest. Instead, users will be able to log in using Meta VR headsets.
Brief introduction: Facebook rebranded its name to Meta last year, in reference to the metaverse, which combines social media with virtual and augmented reality. Starting in March 2022, its VR product line also changed its social media and website names to Meta Quest.
Why it matters:
Starting next month, Quest users will need to create a separate Meta account
Unlike Facebook accounts, users are free to have multiple Meta accounts, the company says
This change addresses the concerns of some VR users who complained about various quirks of relying on a private social media profile to play video games
