In today’s episode of the AR/VR Magazine Podcast, I talk about how Facebook is changing its company name to Meta, as well as a recap of the rest of the announcements from Connect 2021.

Well… as we hinted at in our previous podcast, the rumors turned out to be true. Yesterday, at the annual Facebook Connect 2021, Facebook announced that it is officially rebranding its company name to Meta, to reflect its future strategy which focuses on building the metaverse.

They also announced some new devices, some platform changes, some new games as well as further detail about its vision for the metaverse.

LOT’s of exciting changes in the future for Facebook, so you will definitely want to tune into this episode!
