WhatsApp-Meta Quest Integration: Meta Quest is the company’s VR/AR service for consumers worldwide. In an effort to broaden its reach, the business is testing the headset’s interoperability with WhatsApp, according to WABetaInfo. The Quest device is supported in the Android instant messaging app’s ‘Linked devices’ option.
This feature will most likely be included in a future version of the app. According to the claim, Android Beta version ‘22.214.171.124’ is a suitable build. However, due to its in-development status, the feature is not yet available to beta testers. Once the feature is available, users will be able to access WhatsApp on their Meta Quest smartphone in the same way they do on Windows and iPhone.
The Meta Quest device is displayed as connected to the messaging app in the screenshot supplied by the news outlet. WhatsApp users will be able to use the headset natively and seamlessly after the update. This is great news for VR/AR headset users, as the enhanced capability will improve user experience and communication. According to the report, users cannot officially create a connection at the present due to the under-development character.
In other Quest headset news, the business revealed that parents would soon be able to create restricted accounts for Quest 2 and 3 devices for youngsters aged 10 to 12. After gaining permission from their parents, preteens in this age bracket can also set up an account. It will include age-appropriate suggestions.
