You Can Now Hang Out With Friends In VR As Meta Is Rolling Out YouTube Content On Horizon Home

Meta is doing everything in its power to convince its users that VR is the next biggest and best thing. And if that means introducing more entertainment on Horizon Home, then so be it.

The tech giant recently went public with the decision of adding an element of ease and convenience to users’ home screens thanks to making YouTube content available on Horizon Home.

Quest users are now going to be able to watch content on the app easily and it’s like hanging out in VR. Horizon Home is the name given to the first-ever VR space where social hangouts will be possible.

So this is another major offering that Quest users can celebrate because the company is really slow in terms of adding huge updates to headsets that were launched in 2019.

A few months back, we saw Horizon Home allow its enable users to call upon their friends into the trendy Home Space. Right now, you’ll find it awfully difficult to view the content of your choice, let’s not forget how difficult it can be to get on board with the different browsing experiences that Meta hosts.

So as you can see, the addition of YouTube here is definitely going to be loved for obvious reasons. There are undoubtedly a lot of decent things to witness and share here as YouTube is the king of online content in many people’s books. It’s the best thing to share when you’ve got friends hanging out and in the mood to see some great entertainment that’s short in duration.

In case you’re wondering what’s so new and great about this because watching YouTube in VR is already possible thanks to other forms of technology. Well, that may be true but you’d need an application to make that possible. Moreover, you need a new avatar to gain access or have a new friends list to assist with joining.

Now, Meta is making the way for a simple, convenient, and frictionless ordeal that would really help so many others get on track to the best entertainment out there. Simple call all your pals and press play to enjoy. It’s as simple as that!

The news was announced at this year’s exciting Meta Connect event. Here is where Meta revealed how it’s currently working hard on adding YouTube VR on Horizon Home. So users would enjoy a whole library full of nothing but YouTube greatness. In addition, there’s going to be a trove comprising 180 to 360 types of content that are seen on VR.

It may have come after much delay but it’s finally happening and for a lot of people, that’s what matters. We hope it would soon be easy to see other types of content like Hulu, Netflix, and even HBO in one area too. We need that homely feeling to enter the world of VR and this just might be the perfect start.

For now, no exact date was announced for the rollout so we’ll need to keep an eye out for that.
