Horizon Worlds VR creation, Meta's virtual reality production and interaction platform is now available to users in United States and Canada. This move will introduce VR to many new Meta VR users who will receive the headset as a Christmas gift this year.

Horizon Worlds, the main city, lets users invite others and join experiences. Also, Horizon has a variety of applications and alternatives where users may meet up with friends, play games, take quizzes, and more. Based on projections, the expansion of the Horizon Worlds comes at a critical time, with Quest 2 headset sales are already being three times higher than previous VR devices.

While Meta hasn't provided any official sales figures, it has gained a lot more traction since Facebook changed its name to Meta. Horizon Worlds could be the next evolution of social media interaction, as more people adopt VR, notes the article. Advanced sandbox games like "Grand Theft Auto" are expected to make their debut soon.
