While prospective users might worry about bandwidth issues—who hasn’t suffered wifi outages and bad Zoom connections in the past six months?—Facebook says the Oculus Browser requires no more bandwidth than a computer. Its 3D content does require more, “but it’s still about equivalent to what you’d run with a regular [Oculus] app,” Fernandez Guajardo says.

Surprisingly, Infinite Office doesn’t offer the functionality that is most touted when it comes to VR, and that most people miss about the office: talking face to face. For now, Oculus has several third-party apps that people can use for meetings, such as Glue, Spatial, and MeetingRoom.

“We’re feeling lonely, and we know VR can do more to help—and we’re working on it,” Fernandez Guajardo says. “But in order to take full advantage of social presence, we need to give you the tools and capabilities to do things. So what you saw this week with Infinite Office is sort of the foundational layer, initial capabilities to help unlock productivity and utility from Quest.”

Infinite Office is free with Oculus Quest 2, which starts at $299 and starts shipping next month, though the software itself won’t be available until the winter in the US. The company anticipates that the earliest adopters will be those already using VR for gaming and other purposes, who would be more comfortable using it for work, too.
