Meta, Facebook’s owner, launches a virtual reality login system

Meta Platforms Inc has modified how users log on to its virtual reality headsets. This is in response to an earlier change that required accounts from the company’s Facebook app, while keeping links there.

According to Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg, the company will begin rolling out its new “Meta accounts” in August. This was stated in a Thursday Facebook post.

After users complained that they had used separate Oculus accounts to access the headsets, Oculus, a virtual reality company acquired by Meta in 2014, announced plans to eliminate the Facebook login requirement.

Meta accounts will manage device-level app purchases and access to Meta accounts, according to the company in a blog post. Meta Horizon profiles represent users’ social presence within virtual reality with associated avatars and user names, said the company.

It said that people will have the option of connecting their profiles to a unified Meta Accounts Center. This will allow them to integrate their existing social connections from Facebook and Messenger into their virtual reality experiences.

A spokesperson for the company told Reuters that accounts not added to Accounts Center will be combined across different apps by the company only for the purpose of counting users and enforcing safety regulations.

Last week, Chris Cox, Product Chief, mentioned the change in a memo. He called it Project Simile and stated that it would “power continuity across all the metaverse.” Reuters has viewed a copy.

Meta has been pushing for the integration of accounts and other products within its “family app” which provides cross-app functionality as well as allowing users to consolidate data about their behavior across different environments.

The company had announced plans for unifying its messaging structure across all apps in 2019. Later that year, Meta Pay was launched. Users can now use this payment service to process transactions across Facebook Messenger and Instagram.
