Meta employees have given the metaverse app a thumbs down
Meta insiders have given its Metaverse app the big thumbs down amidst the company launching its new Quest Pro virtual and mixed reality headset this week.
Horizon Worlds, Meta’s flagship Metaverse app has been reported as buggy and is barely being used by the development team hired to create it.
In a leaked memo, Vishal Shah, the VP of the Metaverse instructed the development team that the app would remain in a “quality lockdown.”
The lockdown will remain in place until at least the end of 2022, in a bid to iron out issues.
It revealed Horizon Worlds would be made accessible to a larger audience for further testing, once the problems are resolved.
The app aims to facilitate users in building avatars so they can interact within virtual worlds.
Meta unveiled its Quest Pro virtual and mixed reality headset this week. However, the device has been criticised for its $1500USD price tag.

Its design has also come under fire. Some users complaining that the headwear is uncomfortable to wear for an extended period of time.
Once it is available for purchase, the device can be used in Meta’s Horizon Workrooms, and by some developer apps.
The device does not work with Meta’s flailing Horizon Worlds app.
The general public is continually sold the utopian concept of the wonders of its Metaverse by CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
It does not seem Meta’s current rate of technological development is in line with the bold claims being made.
The reality of the Metaverse seems to be much further away than Meta leads the public to believe.
Tech giants like Bill Gates are predicting “most meeting will take place in the Metaverse within the next three years.” However, others beg to differ.
Even when the technology of Meta’s version of the Metaverse is ready, mainstream adoption may be a highly optimistic concept within the timeframes being suggested.
