Horizon Worlds Reaches 300,000 User Milestone
Updated · Feb 24, 2022
The VR platform achieved the figure three months after it launched last year.
Horizon Worlds, the social VR platform created by Meta, has hit 300,000 users, the company’s chief product officer told employees in a virtual meeting. The number represents a 10x factor growth since December.
Joe Osborne, a Meta spokesperson confirmed the CPO’s report to The Verge. According to Osborne, the figures included users of both Horizon Worlds and Horizon Venues, but not Horizon Workrooms. Venues is a virtual and augmented reality-powered offering for attending live events from the comfort of your home.
The Horizon Worlds is a step towards actualizing Meta’s vision for the metaverse. The expansive, multiplayer platform offers access to a digital environment that people can explore using user-identifying avatars. Like hugely popular online game Roblox, Horizon World users can build their own immersive worlds within the platform.
The company initially launched the app in beta to selected US and Canadian users in 2020. Testers were Oculus VR headset users and had to accept an invitation to hop on. However, in December last year, the tech giant announced a broader launch to cover all Oculus headset owners.
So far, the platform hosts over 10,000 private worlds.
