A few months ago, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said the company had been working on a “truly immersive user experience”.
But in the past few months, he has made clear that he is not going to take that task for granted.
In an interview with the BBC, Zuckerberg also spoke about how the new mobile platform he founded, Oculus Rift, will enable the company to “move beyond the physical realm”.
We want to enable VR to take us to places we never could have imagined.
Zuckerberg said that while Facebook currently supports just a “tiny handful of games” on Oculus Rift and Gear VR, Oculus VR is now working on creating a “game suite” that will enable users to play VR games for the first time on Facebook.
For the past six months, Zuckerberg has been working in a secret office in the San Francisco Bay Area, and has been keeping a low profile.
But last week, Zuckerberg announced a major shift in Facebook’s approach to VR.
According to Zuckerberg, Facebook is now going to create a “new VR experience”.
He said the new VR experience would “be built with a whole lot of new features, new experiences, new ways of seeing, different ways of interacting with your virtual world”.
This new experience will be “the first of many experiences” that Facebook is planning to offer on the platform.
But the changes that Zuckerberg announced on Tuesday will have a much broader impact on how the company delivers on its promises to users.
Facebook is planning on offering virtual reality experiences on mobile platforms like Android, iOS and Windows phones.
However, the company has yet to make any decisions about which platform it will support.
Zuckerberg is also not planning on using a headset like Oculus Rift for VR.
Zuckerberg’s comments came as the technology company announced that it would invest more than $2 billion in a new virtual reality startup called Neuralink, which will help create virtual reality headsets that will allow users to “see, feel, feel” virtual worlds.
Facebook’s announcement on Tuesday, which comes after the Oculus Rift’s initial Kickstarter campaign raised $9 million, also came as Facebook released a new version of the Oculus app for Windows Phone.
Zuckerberg announced that the Oculus VR app would be coming to the Microsoft mobile platform in the future.
