After Apple, It's Facebook's turn to make some announcements for the start of the school year. For this edition 2020, Facebook Connect obviously focused on augmented and virtual reality, but not only for Oculus. Indeed, Facebook in person is also thinking of getting into this sector by offering connected glasses in partnership with Ray-Ban. GAFA is also reportedly working on a more advanced augmented reality model which appears to be called Aria. Let's see what were the main announcements to remember during this Facebook Connect conference.

the first one, and not the least, is the presentation of the Oculus Quest 2. This headset is the unification of the entire range offered by Oculus in a single product. For simplicity, the Quest 2 uses the screen of the original helmet, while incorporating the many improvements made to the Quest, dont Oculus Link. otherwise, the Oculus Quest 2 becomes the first virtual reality headset to require a Facebook connection, and not only to Oculus.

Yes, the Oculus Quest 2 conquered you, the helmet is now available for pre-order in 22 pays, and should be shipped on 13 next october. for the version 64 go, It will take 299 dollars and 399 dollars for the version 256 go.

If Facebook announced the end of the Rift S, Company Continues To Promote PC VR Games As Respawn's Next Medal of Honor : Above and Beyond. Oculus relies heavily on the Link functionality announced on the Oculus Quest 2, which allows users to connect their headphones to PC via USB-C. According to Facebook, the Link function should arrive in beta this fall. For this occasion, an update should support a refresh rate of 90 Hz (instead of 72 Hz) and therefore benefit from the higher resolution of the Quest 2.

For several years now, GAFA's F has been talking about connected glasses whenever he can. So far nothing very concrete, but yesterday things changed. Facebook has announced a partnership with Ray-Ban which should eventually lead to the completion of this project as early as next year. Facebook was very vague on the subject, but we know that these famous glasses will not offer classic AR features.

In parallel, Facebook also featured Project Aria. According to the American giant, this initiative should ultimately make it possible to offer a much more optimized augmented reality experience.

Oculus is gradually starting to no longer want to focus solely on gaming. During the presentation, the video above shows the Oculus Quest 2 as a real working tool in its own right. Almost like a replacement for your computer. But Oculus goes even further by presenting a multitude of use cases of its headphones. Whether to play sports, to communicate with your friends or customers, And much more.

What particularly caught our attention was the presentation of the Infinite Office. As we can see in the video, this web designer manages her projects with the tips of her fingers, no matter where she is. This function should be launched next winter.

If Oculus no longer wants to rhyme only with video games, the company remains clearly attached to this sector. Facebook therefore took advantage of the event to present a long list of new games for the Oculus Quest. 2. This list includes the sequel to The Climb, Warhammer 40,000 Battle Sister, Myst, Assassin’s Creed, et Splinter Cell. We also got a quick glimpse of Star Wars : Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge.
