Meta’s Horizon Worlds has so many quality issues that even the team-building app doesn’t use the metaverse much, according to an internal memo obtained by The Verge.
Meta Horizon Worlds’ VR social network — the company’s flagship “metaverse” app — suffers from several quality issues, and team building doesn’t get much use for it either, according to internal notes.
In a staff memo dated Sept. 15, Metaverse Vice President Vishal Shah said the team will be in “quality insurance” for the rest of the year “to ensure we fix our quality glitches and performance issues before opening the horizon to more users.”
Horizon Worlds allows people to build and interact in virtual worlds as a legless avatar, just like Roblox meets Minecraft. It’s a major initiative after Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s change to Meta; The company spends billions annually building its vision of the Metaverse. The multiplayer platform on the Meta Quest headset was released in December last year. It reached 300,000 users earlier this year and is expected to arrive soon on mobile and desktop devices via the web version, though reminders from Vishal say the web launch could be delayed.
It’s still very early days for a major Meta metaverse
“Since its launch late last year, we’ve seen that the central thesis of Horizon Worlds — a synchronized social network where creators can build immersive worlds — turn out to be powerful,” Shah wrote last month. But the feedback currently coming in from creators, users, testers, and many of us on the team is that the cumulative burden of paper cuts, stability issues, and bugs makes it very difficult for our community to experience the magic of Horizon. Simply put, for an experience to be enjoyable and retention-based, it must first be usable and designed. well “.
While the Meta expected it to work on more realistic avatars, Horizon’s current graphics quality pales in comparison to some non-VR competitors like Fortnite. Zuckerberg himself was recently fancied after posting a screenshot of his Horizon avatar to celebrate user launches of Horizon for Quest in France and Spain. He quickly posted a follow-up photo of a more advanced selfie, saying he’ll be sharing “major updates to avatar art and avatars” at the company’s annual Connect conference scheduled for Oct. 11.
