Meta New Quest Pro Hits Store Shelve

Meta has introduced the Meta Quest Pro, a highly anticipated mixed-reality headset. The elegant and sophisticated piece of gear made its debut, October 11, at the company's annual Connect conference.The Quest Pro's strong mixed reality capabilities give it an edge over the comparable less expensive Quest 2. Quest Pro users can view the outside world in their peripheral vision thanks to a larger lens design that uses passthrough cameras, so they don't need to remove the headset to carry out daily duties.

The App Lab has also surpassed 2,000 apps and 400 on the official store, with nearly one in three bagging millions in sales.

Pico Interactive, now a subsidiary of Chinese tech giant ByteDance, presented the Pico 4 and then the Pico 4 Enterprise variants of its next-generation headsets shortly after Meta Platforms unveiled its Quest Pro. Due to similar price points, users are likely to favour the competition. The Quest Pro and Pico 4 Enterprise retail for approximately £1,499 and £900, respectively.

Meta, ByteDance Headset Rivalry

There are rumours that the Pico 4 Enterprise will have finer pixels per eye while the Quest Pro would have overall better specs. Additionally integrating Microsoft and Zoom's collaborative technologies, Meta's most recent business headset will give employees access to the Office 365 productivity suite.
