After months of teasing, it’s time for Meta to introduce its high-end virtual reality headset. Mark Zuckerberg opens Meta Connect 2022 with a keynote presentation sharing updates on his company’s work on their various metaverse projects. Expect updates on Horizon Worlds and Horizon Workrooms – the apps for fun and business in the digital world – plus at least one big new hardware announcement: the introduction of the much-taunted and occasionally leaked Quest Pro headset.
This is a big moment for Meta. The company is a year away from its rebranding of Facebook, its metaverse initiatives have burned billions of dollars, and the company has been struggling with revenue and user growth all the while. The result was some very unhappy investors, with Meta’s stock falling more than half over the course of the year. At Connect, Zuckerberg has the chance to show what the company has been working on and prove it’s all starting to pile up.
Meta Connect 2022 starts at 1:00 PM ET / 10:00 AM PT. The event will be streamed online – and of course in VR and in Horizon Worlds for those who own a Quest 2 headset.
