Meta accounts have finally arrived. You no longer need a Facebook account to use your Quest headset. However, you must create a Meta account and a Horizon profile.
Meta announced it a few weeks ago and it is now done. The American giant’s virtual reality headsets are (finally) losing their dependence on Facebook as it is no longer mandatory to use a Facebook account to use these devices. A very good thing, certainly, which however requires creating another account.
Meta accounts have finally arrived. As of now, Facebook’s parent company, Meta, is making the new login system available to Quest headset owners. “The update will be done globally gradually. In other words, if you do not yet have the possibility of creating a Meta account and a Horizon profile, you will receive the update in question very soon”, can we read in the press release from the company.
You no longer need a Facebook account to use your Quest headset
If your headset is currently linked to an Oculus account, you will need to register with a Meta account to continue using your device after January 1, 2023. The company announced this new system last month, bringing the company back to Menlo Park on his highly controversial decision to require a Facebook account to use an Oculus headset.
Although you don’t actually need a Facebook or Instagram account anymore, you can still use these services to create a Meta account. Conversely, if you have already linked your device to Facebook, you can delete your profile from your new Meta account and use an email address instead. Once this is done, you will need to create a complete Meta Horizon profile, with a unique username in particular, to be able to take full advantage of the vision of the metaverse according to the American giant.
