Facebook, Google, Apple and Microsoft are working on a mobile app for Oculus Rift that will allow users to use their Facebook accounts as virtual reality headsets.
The social network has not announced any details, but Facebook is already testing a VR version of the Oculus Rift headset for a limited number of users, according to The Verge.
Users who sign up for Oculus VR will also be able to access Oculus Rift content and the Oculus app.
The Facebook VR app is slated to launch sometime in early 2018.
Facebook said that it has received a number of applications from developers interested in developing applications for Oculus.
In a statement, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said, “The Facebook VR platform is built to support all of the VR experiences available on the Oculus Store, and it will be available for all users on all of our platforms in the near future.”
Facebook VR is being built by Oculus VR, a virtual reality company founded by Facebook cofounder and CEO Brendan Iribe in 2015.
Facebook says that Facebook VR will be the first VR platform to be built entirely on Oculus, rather than its proprietary Facebook app.
Facebook has been working on VR technology since 2012, when it acquired Oculus VR.
Oculus VR currently sells VR headsets, camera accessories, controllers and other virtual reality accessories.
