Soon, players will no longer need a Facebook account – or Meta account, actually – to use their Oculus VR headsets.
The announcement, made Thursday by CEO Mark Zuckerberg, comes after a recent social media outage left hundreds of thousands of Oculus Quest 2 VR users unable to access the games they’d purchased through the Oculus store.
“As we’ve focused more on work, and frankly as we’ve heard your feedback more broadly, we’re working on making it so you can log in into Quest with an account other than your personal Facebook account,” Zuckerberg says. “Not everyone wants their social media profile linked to all these other experiences.”
