With Meta Quest Pro, the company plans to introduce the VR experience to a broader base of people that was primarily just used by a realm of gamers. The headset comes with the latest technologies, like an advanced mobile snapdragon computer chip, which was developed by Qualcomm, that helps this device to produce more advanced graphics. It comes with embedded sensors to improve the touch controllers. 

These headsets also provide better hand tracking and improved reading experiences for users. It also consists of what the meta calls a “full-colour mixed reality experience,” which uses the camera on the helmet’s outer sides, letting people see the world around them through the device.

The mixed-reality features in this new headset blend the elements of the physical and virtual worlds. During its launch, Zuckerberg mentioned that this feature would enable people to access the digital world with VR and AR headsets. 

Microsoft Ceo Satya Nadella, who was present during this online event, also discussed a partnership with Meta, which is intended to bring some of Microsoft’s work collaboration apps to Quest VR devices. Microsoft Team’s chat app, the Microsoft 365 suite of work, and Microsoft’s Xbox cloud gaming service will be available on Quest devices. Nadella mentioned, “You will be able to play 2D games with your Xbox controller projected on a massive screen on Quest.” He added, “It’s early days, but we’re excited for what’s to come.”

However, the launch of the VR headset was not very well received by investors. Meta shares were down by almost 4.5% in mid-day and trading at $127.85.
