The event can be live-streamed directly from the Facebook Connect events page here, or on the Facebook Reality Labs page here.

What To Expect

There is a lot to expect at this conference, particularly around VR and AR technology.

Oculus Quest 3

A recent leak appeared to show a series of VR headset tutorials that could potentially be for a new Oculus Quest, however, there has been no official announcement as of yet to confirm this.

If we do get a glimpse at a new Oculus, we're hoping that we'll also get an indication of the all-important specs, especially what the Oculus Quest 3 resolution will be and if it will support 120hz.

The 'Metaverse'

We're likely going to hear more details about the new 'Metaverse' which was announced recently, and we're very excited to hear more.

The “metaverse” is said to be a set of virtual spaces, where you can 'create and explore with other people who aren’t in the same physical space as you.'

According to Facebook, 'it’s about making the time you do spend online more meaningful.' rather than spending more time online in general.

We're expecting more a deep dive here, and we're looking forward to hearing more.

AR Glasses

Recently, Facebook partnered with Ray-Ban to create a new set of Smart Glasses (Ray-Ban Stories), that allows you to capture, record, share, and listen to music all through your sunglasses.

It's highly likely that we'll see some news on where this is going and what form it could take at Facebook Connect, so keep an eye out come Thursday.
