Vishal Shah, Meta’s VP of Metaverse, admitted that Horizon Worlds, the flagship programme that Meta uses to demonstrate the promise of its metaverse, still has severe usability issues. In a recent memo, Shah notes that even Meta workers aren’t using the app as frequently, and hints at the implementation of time limitations for employee presence on the platform.
Meta’s metaverse push is in peril, with executives now attacking Horizon Worlds and the platform’s flagship metaverse app. According to the Verge, Meta’s VP of Metaverse, Vishal Shah, alluded to the platform’s quality difficulties.
The executive acknowledged Horizon Worlds’ current state and proposed attacking bugs in a “quality lockdown phase” that would last until the end of the current year. The goal of this move, according to Shah, is to “ensure that we fix our quality gaps and performance issues before we open up Horizon to more users.”
Horizon Worlds is an app designed to appeal to customers who are currently purchasing the Meta Quest brand of VR headsets, which are the only means to experience these worlds at the time of writing. The corporation alluded about the launch of the platform for web environments but has not revealed further details.
According to Mark Zuckerberg, the concept of the metaverse and its future significance are critical to the company’s growth. Meta declared a $2.8 billion loss in July due to the poor performance of its metaverse division, Reality Labs. Shah believes that this thought is powerful and significant. He stated in the memo:
“Since launching late last year, we have seen that the core thesis of Horizon Worlds — a synchronous social network where creators can build engaging worlds — is strong.”
However, as of the writing of this message on September 15, employees of the organisation were deliberately avoiding spending time on the platform. A follow-up memo delivered on September 30 confirmed the situation, with Shah hinting at the implementation of quotas for employees to access Horizon Worlds.
Shah attempted to entice employees by saying:
“Everyone in this company should commit to falling in love with Horizon Worlds. You can’t do anything unless you use it. Enter the room. Make plans to do it with coworkers or friends.”
