Meta opens up VR headset software to third parties — including Lenovo and Microsoft

Facebook parent Meta Platforms Inc. is “opening up” its Meta Quest headset operating system to other hardware makers, part of an effort to boost its standing in the nascent augmented reality and virtual reality industries.

The move means other technology companies will be able to build their own headsets using Meta’s operating system, chief executive officer Mark Zuckerberg wrote Monday.

oh so they finally realized that they can't succeed with a walled garden? Who could have seen that without doing this they stifle and kill the growth of VR.
