Facebook has today announced it has started rolling out Messenger to users who have logged into Oculus Quest and Quest 2 using their Facebook accounts. This allows users to chat with their Facebook friends anywhere they have Messenger, even if they’re not in VR.
“Bringing Messenger to the Quest Platform gives people another way to connect and share experiences together no matter where they are.”
The feature is tied to Oculus Party creation so you can jump into a game together from a conversation. Moreover, choosing to communicate with your friends with Messenger on Oculus doesn’t change your existing privacy settings.
You can message your Oculus friends using Oculus Chats with your existing Oculus username. If your friends and family want to borrow your headset, you can sign out of Messenger at any time in your Messenger settings before sharing the headset with them.
To sign back in, simply select your Messenger profile and re-enter your password. For more information about Messenger on Oculus, visit this link.
