The big news for Facebook today is that it is changing the company name to Meta, but there is some interesting information from Facebook Connect live broadcast It’s that Oculus Quest VR headsets will soon no longer require a Facebook account.
“Because we are more focused on work, and frankly, as we listen to your feedback more widely, we are working hard to enable you to log in to Quest with an account other than your personal Facebook account,” said CEO Mark Zuckerberg in His keynote speech. “We will soon begin testing support for work accounts, and we are working to make a broader transition next year.”
Now, you need a valid Facebook account to set up the Oculus Quest 2 VR headset, which is Facebook’s massive power outage, Prevent anyone from accessing games purchased through the Oculus Store. This hasn’t stopped a teenager from finding a way to unlink your Facebook account from Quest 2, but it’s a bit tricky, and you do lose some of the headset’s features.
Zuckerberg admitted that despite the company’s new name and focus on the so-called metaverse, “not everyone wants their social media profile to be connected to all other experiences.”
There is no detailed information about when Quest headsets will start offering alternative login options or these options.
