Facebook Spaces introduces live broadcasting for VR

Facebook Spaces has introduced the ability for live video inside VR with an update released today. Users can now share live video on Facebook from Facebook Spaces, allowing for friends and family to interact with and view the feed in 360 degrees.

Users have been able to stream live video through Facebook using Facebook Live, but the ability to do so in VR using Facebook Spaces opens a new avenue of interactivity for social VR.

After going live in Facebook Spaces, viewers can participate and react to what is being streamed and comment on what’s going on. You’ll be able to physically reach out and pick comments you like, turning them into physical objects that everyone can then interact with inside of VR.

Facebook Spaces is currently in beta and available at the Oculus Store, and users can start their first live broadcast inside VR starting today.
