We recently launched Horizon Workrooms on Oculus Quest 2. It’s a new way to collaborate remotely across the world, through the power of virtual reality. And today, we’re excited to announce we’re teaming up with Zoom to integrate Workrooms even more deeply into your everyday workflows, starting next year.

Regardless of physical distance, people can meet up inside Workrooms and feel like they’re in the same room together. With immersive features like avatars and 3D spatial audio, and the ability to access your desktop computer and keyboard seamlessly from VR, Workrooms is designed to improve your team’s ability to collaborate, communicate, and connect. And starting next year, we’ll be taking Workrooms to the next level, letting you easily join Zoom Meetings and use Zoom Whiteboard all from within VR—we’re showing a sneak peek of what it could look like today at Zoomtopia, which you can check out here.

Integration with Zoom Meetings will make it easier than ever to meet with your colleagues outside VR, through the tools they already use: Just dial into any existing Zoom Meeting right from Workrooms in VR. And with Zoom Whiteboard integrated directly into Workrooms, you can sketch out and brainstorm ideas with everyone on the call, across devices.

The way we work is changing, and we’re excited that Zoom and Workrooms are coming together to help you and your colleagues defy distance to stay connected and productive, across realities.

You can expect to see Zoom Meetings and Zoom Whiteboard come to Workrooms on Quest 2 next year. For now, you can try out the Workrooms beta and learn more on the Workrooms site.
