Facebook brings WebVR to your newsfeed


WebVR is going to be huge for virtual reality because it lowers the barrier for content creators to jump into the space and ship something to people with all VR headsets without needing to learn specific tools like Unity. 

Facebook just announced that thanks to its work on ReactVR, you'll be able to see rich VR experiences directly from your News Feed without installing an additional app. The feature is currently in testing, but should roll out to everyone in the near future.

This is fantastic news because it makes it easier for content creators to build experiences and for existing users to enjoy VR with zero friction. We think this will significantly improve how many people are willing to put on their VR headsets on a regular basis.
