Facebook Spaces just got even more social. Starting today, this social VR app is adding cross-platform functionality—so you can now hang out with your HTC Vive friends from Spaces on Rift!

Learn more from Facebook Head of Social VR Rachel Franklin:

VR is such a powerful way to feel present with the people you care about when you can’t physically be together. With Facebook Spaces, we’ve always been committed to bringing the power of social VR to as many people as possible, across platforms and devices.

That’s why I’m super excited to announce that today we’re taking Facebook Spaces cross-platform for the first time, making it possible for even more people to spend time with their friends and family in VR. HTC Vive owners can now use Spaces with a Vive headset—just download from facebook.com/spaces.

In the new app, Vive owners will find all the same fun features as the Rift version—you can create your own avatar, view Facebook photos and 360 videos, play games, draw with markers, go Live, make Messenger video calls, and (my favorite) take awesome selfies. Plus it’s cross-platform compatible, so Vive users can also hang out in Spaces with friends who use Rift.

This is our first expansion onto a new platform, but it’s only the beginning: We’re working to bring Facebook Spaces to even more VR platforms and devices in the future, so stay tuned.

Go check it out and let us know what you think! Download at facebook.com/spaces.

Jump into Spaces today to welcome your Vive friends—and share your sweet selfies with us on Twitter and Facebook!
