Meta is bringing Horizon Worlds out of virtual reality finally. The 3D social platform has prior to this been exclusive to its VR headsets, but Meta just announced on Thursday that Horizon Worlds is beginning to roll out on mobile and the web but in early access.

“To start, a small number of people can now access Super Rumble through the Meta Quest app on Android, with iOS rolling out in the coming weeks,” Meta stated. “Early access is also available on any web browser at” (When I clicked that link, I was able to get on the waitlist.) The company promises that “as we roll out more worlds over the next few months, you’ll be able to hang out with friends, laugh it up at comedy shows, and enjoy free concerts and events from any web-connected device.”

What Players Should Expect With the New Development

This in question all means that at least to kick things off on mobile and the web, you will only be able to play Super Rumble, Bryan Pope, Meta’s spokesperson confirmed to The Verge. More worlds will be rolling out “soon,” Pope stated. That simply means that this is ultimately a very small launch; in the VR version of Horizon Worlds, players reportedly have access to a host of experiences that are made by Meta as well as by other players.

What This Move Means for Meta’s Metaverse Ambitions

Still, this very initial rollout in question could prove to be a very important moment for the broader metaverse ambitions of Meta. “The metaverse should be available to everyone — no matter what device they’re on,” the company stated. “And while Quest headsets are the most immersive way to access the metaverse, we believe there should be multiple entry points. Bringing Worlds to more surfaces is a step toward delivering on that vision and opening up the experience to more people.”

Meta’s Horizon Worlds Mobile and Web Launch

The mobile and web launch has been for a long time coming. The company began discussing it publicly in the previous year, and Vishal Shah, metaverse VP of Meta, has now stated that the company had a working version of the mobile version in the previous year that it didn’t end up shipping. “It was a little bit too much of a VR game on mobile as opposed to a mobile-native experience,” Shah in an interview with Lowpass stated.

Meta’s Connect conference

I’m guessing Meta will be talking more about Horizon Worlds as well as its metaverse efforts at its Connect conference scheduled to take place on September 27th and 28th.
