For many, remote work may be a new long-term reality. In that spirit, Facebook today announced that it will be introducing more collaboration and productivity apps to the Oculus Store for Quest soon.

The first productivity apps are said to land on the Oculus Store later this year, including Immersed and Spatial as the company’s flagship examples of full-featured social/collaborative apps specifically targeted at enterprise users.

Immersed is coming to the Oculus Store on Quest this summer, the company says. The app, which emphasizes both solo and collaborative work over standalone VR headsets and PC/Linux/mac, has been available on Oculus Quest since June 2019. The company says more XR platforms are coming soon.

Spatial also offers a real-time collaborative space, however it’s approached the task from the AR side of things first, notably supporting HoloLens (1 and 2) and Magic Leap 1. It also supports web browsers and Oculus Quest, the latter of which is on a request-only basis. Spatial is said to arrive on the Oculus Store “in the coming months.”

It’s clear the company is taking a first big step in bringing these first two apps closer into the fold by pitching them to businesses alongside Oculus for Business, a program targeted at enterprise customers and developers looking to manage VR deployments and create in-headset experiences.

“Apps like these let people experiment with VR productivity solutions on their own—and for companies ready to scale larger, there’s still Oculus for Business to help you get there,” a Facebook spokesperson says.

    Does this mean that they weren’t accepting collaboration apps before? How incredibly backward of them.

    • Glenn Ennreich

      The Facebook process for accepting or rejecting Quest applications is both secret and inexplicable. They won’t even explain why they reject an app.

        John carmack explained why at oc5

        There is always sidequest (all praise to it)

    I have been using Spatial about twice a week for the past 3 months. It’s pretty incredible and I believe it’s going to prove to be a very effective AR/VR collaboration tool in the near future specifically as headset chain of supply gets worked out.

      Are you trying to say you want Oculus to go out of business for good and get all of their employees to go bankrupt and homeless because you think Oculus is owned by Facebook and that you think Facebook is bad? Cause it sounds like you are, you HTC Vive and SteamVR fantard!!!
