Facebook has reportedly declared that it is building versions of its apps in virtual reality.
Chris Cox, the company's head of product said while speaking at Recode's Code Media conference in Dana Point that Facebook VR was on its way. While he did not describe the app in details, he imagines world where people would be able to share their "current environment" with others using the app. It would become an everyday way of sharing, Cox added, reported The Verge.
However, he also added that users may have to wait "a while" before they could try Facebook in virtual reality. "We're a long way away from everyone having those headsets," Cox said.
Facebook's desire to venture into " virtual reality" was clearly spelt when the company acquired Oculus VR in a two billion dollar deal last year.
