Facebook Watch is a new video experience that allows you to catch up on original shows, videos from friends and Pages you follow, top live videos, recommended videos, and videos you’ve saved.
The free feature is available on the Oculus Quest via the Oculus TV app. You can also access Facebook Watch on your computer or in an app on a mobile device.
I find this feature to be interesting and unique because it allows you to socialize while watching videos at the same time. The live section has many different popular shows that you can watch from all different types of genres.
I enjoyed this experience because I enjoy Facebook and sometimes catching up on my friends lives through their videos is fun, but I think this feature is interesting in the sense that you get to watch entertainment and news videos conveniently.
For future improvements, it would be nice if the option was available to access Facebook Watch from VRV so I can have a more immersive experience.
Not including this option should be considered as a missed opportunity because it would allow audiences to enjoy the feature even further.
As CEO of Oculus, Mark Zuckerberg said: “I believe that virtual and augmented reality will be the next major computing platform”. Virtualreality is when you created an entirely digital environment that immerses the user in a virtual world. Augmented reality, on the other hand, is when you add digital objects or information to the real world.
These two technologies are still relatively new and there’s no sign yet of them slowing down anytime soon, but they’re definitely gaining momentum.I think the future of VR and AR is very bright because it can help with many different things, for example, education.
Some other thoughts are that Facebook Watch should have more original content by Pages you follow to make the experience even better. The main feature I use when watching videos on my phone is flipping through different pages to find new entertainment and it would be nice if Facebook Watch worked the same way.
I believe that I am part of the future when it comes to these technologies because they are just starting to appear in our everyday lives and will only become more popular soon.
Overall, I think FacebookWatch is a great feature for people who enjoy watching videos on their phone or computer because it gives you an immersive experience while also allowing you to socialize.
I think the future of VR and AR is super bright, especially in education thanks to features like Facebook Watch; it can help make learning more engaging for students.
