An Oculus Quest rumor pinpoints the VR company bringing Android apps to its VR headsets. If so, it could lead to a significant disruption of what people consider as go-to computing machines.
Despite some bespoke apps for enterprises and desktop mirroring, VR still has not become an everyday computing platform. However, the latest tales point to Oculus experimenting with bringing Android apps to its headsets, a potential game changer for VR computing.
A YouTuber, ‘The Mysticle’ found many Android apps in the ‘Preview App’ segment of the Oculus store.
The Preview App section is the section where developers can share test and preview app builds that are in the works for Oculus headsets.
Whether these prove to be full virtual reality apps that leverage the platform’s stereoscopic depth or are just 2D panes as found on a smartphone screen are still to be investigated. There is no official confirmation at the moment, though.
But the potential for apps within virtual reality could open the doors for virtual reality headsets as a workplace mainstay. Knowledge and shared workflows are very important when it comes to productivity.
If employees can get up and running with business applications in a seamless platform, then there is every possibility of the Oculus headset’s becoming the next work location.
Having said that, there are hurdles like VR headsets are still relatively cumbersome items, today’s headsets are going to be too fatiguing to be practical, etc., that must be overcome for VR headsets to become as universal in the office as computers and laptops.
