  What is the metaverse: what will happen to Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp


 

  And they confirmed from the official Facebook account on Twitter, "The names of the applications that we create (Facebook, Instagram, Messenger and WhatsApp) will remain the same."  But of course, through the same channel they introduced Meta, the company responsible for building the metaverse.



  In the eighth issue of Connect, Mark Zuckerberg announced the latest developments for his company.  Most memorable?  Metaverse, which, according to him, "will be the successor to the mobile Internet."


  “Meta is helping to build a future where people have more ways to play and connect in the metaverse. Welcome to the next chapter of social connection,” said Twitter's official Facebook description.



  Zuckerberg himself was responsible for explaining what he would try with Meta: “We are talking about the physical Internet: instead of looking at the screen, we would be inside. It would be more natural and lively: screens cannot connect the entire human experience, nor can they present the idea of ​​existence. With  This new technology, it will be possible: that's what the metaverse is all about."


  And after "teleporting" and showing themselves to others in a virtual way as an example, Zuckerberg said, "They'll feel like they're really there with the rest of the people."  Sure, that sounds really interesting, especially after the pandemic that has swept the planet.  Although it is a bit worrying...


  After the show, which caused an uproar, the first official video appeared.  “metaverse is the next evolution of social networking. It is a team project that will be created by people from all over the world and will be open to everyone. You will be able to socialize, learn, collaborate and play in ways that go what is possible. Nowadays”, they affirm.

  Games within the Facebook Metaverse


  Mark Zuckerberg also announced new apps from various partners.  Although there is a game that really caught the attention of gamers: Grand Theft Auto.  According to the Facebook designer, GTA San Andreas is coming to Oculus Quest 2 and "will offer players a whole new way to experience this popular open world in virtual reality."  Likewise, there is no release date yet.

  Brands that have supported and will be in the Facebook Metaverse


  Gucci, the popular Italian clothing brand, teamed up with Roblox in June to sell a range of digital-only accessories.  Coca-Cola and Clinique sold digital products that were promoted as the basis for the metaverse.  Also, Facebook presents that they are working on a Pro version of their Oculus Quest headphones, which will be published with the smart glasses (for virtual reality vision) they will launch in collaboration with Ray-Ban.
