As of October, all Oculus Rift users will need to have a Facebook account in order to use Realide Virtual glasses. The decision was advanced on Twitter. Until now, users of the glasses needed only an Oculus account but since it is all owned by Facebok, the decision makes sense for the company.
However, non-Facebook users are likely to be dissatisfied to learn that they will have to create an account on the social network to use the glasses. Still, Facebook will give two years to existing users to replace the Oculus account with one from Facebook.
Officially, Facebook has warned that it will end support for Oculus accounts in January 2023. From that date, Oculus accounts will become invalid for using Virtual Reality glasses. In the future, all Oculus equipment will operate under this rule.
Regarding users who have purchases associated with the Oculus account, Facebook was not completely explicit. The company informs that it will find a solution, however, it is possible that certain games and apps will stop working with the transition, something that will not make users happy.
