Welcome to the Connected Church News!
This news item is part of the weekly top 5 news bulletin (from Week 4, Oct 2022) specially packaged for leaders of Nonprofits, Churches, and Faith-based Social Ventures.
In our Web3 news this week, we look at the progress that Meta as a company is making in the Metaverse space. Meta is a significant player, so we need to watch what they do and see what are some of the trends that are coming up, which could help you and me as nonprofits and ministries. Mark Zuckerberg announced the release of a new advanced high end VR headset called Quest Pro. This looks slightly different and looks sleeker and the battery is at the back, so hopefully it will have a better balance when you wear a headset instead of like the whole weight being at the front. And Mark Zuckerberg also says that it has advanced mixed reality features. So we’ll have to wait and see how this takes off. And the other interesting announcement is their partnership with Microsoft to bring Microsoft products inside Meta environment and also multiple social VR features which I will link to in the show notes. Do have a look.
