Oculus Home now has the opportunity to upload your environment

Update. The function has arrived in a stable release. Upload files with a .glb extension to the My Import / Custom Homes directory. Below you will find the original news.

A fresh Oculus Home test update with the Public Test Channel brings support for virtual environments uploaded by users to the platform. This suggests two things: first, Wormslayer was right; secondly, Facebook really socializes its virtual reality business, bringing it closer to the social network.

The process began at the end of 2017, when a major rework of Home added a number of functions to the environment to set up the environment. In June 2018, there appeared support for user-loaded objects, and then support for animation. And later, the platform opened social interaction in real time for users: up to seven people can visit your room at the same time.

However, until now, the architecture of Home has remained unchanged and the same for all users. Now you can not only change its appearance, but also customize the soundtrack, interior and exterior lighting.

Valve’s competitive SteamVR Home software has been supporting user environments since 2017.
