Facebook Introduces Horizon Workrooms – Remote Collaboration Reimagined

The way we work is changing. More people are working remotely, more people want flexible work options, and more people are re-thinking what it means to be in an office.

But without the right connective tools, remote work still has plenty of challenges. Working without colleagues around you can feel isolating at times, and brainstorming with other people just doesn’t feel the same if you’re not in the same room.

So Facebook is excited to launch the open beta of Horizon Workrooms, available for free to download on Oculus Quest 2 in countries where Quest 2 is supported.

Workrooms is a flagship collaboration experience that lets people come together to work in the same virtual room, regardless of physical distance.

It works across both virtual reality and the web and is designed to improve your team’s ability to collaborate, communicate, and connect remotely, through the power of VR— whether that’s getting together to brainstorm or whiteboard an idea, work on a document, hear updates from your team, hang out and socialize, or simply have better conversations that flow more naturally.

Workrooms brings some of the best new technologies together for the first time into one experience on Quest 2.

Using features like mixed-reality desk and keyboard tracking, hand tracking, remote desktop streaming, video conferencing integration, spatial audio, and the new Oculus Avatars.

We’ve been using Workrooms to collaborate here at Facebook already, and we think it’s one of the best ways to work if you can’t be physically together.

Facebook says.
