Quality of Life Improvements

General Enhancements

World Detail Page Improvements
Meta is experimenting with enhancing the world detail pages to provide users with comprehensive information before they decide to visit a world. The detail pages will now include:

  • World description
  • Number of likes
  • Genre
  • Number of current users
  • Creator information
  • And more!

This additional information aims to help users make informed decisions and find worlds that match their interests more effectively.

New Meetup Invite Links
The new meetup invite links feature is designed to make it easier for you and your friends to gather in specific worlds, whether in VR or on mobile. Here’s how it works:

  • In VR: Travel to a world, open its detail page, and click “Invite.” If you’re part of the test group, you’ll see an option to “Create a meetup.” Share this link with your friends or community.
  • From Mobile: Search for the world, open its detail page, and click the “Invite” icon. Select “Create a meetup” from the dropdown menu and share the link.
