Facebook entered the VR market in 2014 with the acquisition of Oculus Go VR Inc. At that time, Oculus Rift was the king of VR headsets and can be seen as the beginning of the trend of virtual reality games and media consumption. Oculus Go VR headsets, however, have a low price for the average consumer because not only were the headphones expensive, but connections with powerful PC hardware were also required. For this reason, Facebook’s standalone VR home devices like the Oculus Go VR and especially the Oculus Quest have developed really well among consumers. Oculus Go, powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 821, is now discontinued. also read The latest model from Rad Power Bikes(Ebikes) is the thinnest and cheapest electric bike to date
In late 2017, Facebook started in collaboration with Xiaomi Oculus Go. It was a set of standalone entry-level VR headsets that only support 3 degrees of freedom (3DoF) and a 5.5 LCD LCD with 1280 × 1440 on the eyes, an update rate of up to 72 Hz and a battery of up to 2600 mAh have up to 2 hours of playing time or 2.5 hours of video playback. This was followed by the Oculus Quest, which was superior in every way, including the display (OLED display with a resolution of 1440 × 1600 per eye), a faster processor (Qualcomm Snapdragon 835), active cooling and 6 degrees of freedom. In addition, an Oculus Quest model appears to be even better by the end of the year, with features like a 90 Hz refresh rate that could lower the price of the current Oculus Quest. For this reason, there is still little space for Oculus Go, so Facebook is closing the sale of VR headsets this year. In addition, the company will no longer bring VR headsets with 3DOF to the market.

You can continue to use Oculus Go VR if you already have one, and you will continue to receive bug fixes and security updates until 2022. The device then reaches the EOL status (end-of-life). Developers will be unable to submit new apps or device app updates after December 4, 2020, and new apps will no longer be released to the store after December 18, 2020. At this point, the updates do not include any new features that are strictly bug fixes and security updates, as mentioned earlier. If you try to buy one now, you may be interested in Oculus Quest, a better and more complete device.http://facebook
New way of distributing applications
In addition to discontinuing Oculus Go, Facebook announces that it is easier for developers to distribute Oculus Quest applications outside of the Oculus Store. In 2021, developers can share their apps with anyone who has a quest without having to upload it or add it to the Oculus Store. Facebook has no details on how this will work, but they are making this announcement so developers have time to adapt their applications to the Quest application.
