Back in January Facebook pulled its 3DOF headset, Oculus Go, from the business platform and began offering Oculus Quest as part of the new Oculus for Business initiative. However, it has only been in closed beta until now.
Facebook has some details about the Oculus platform for Business in blog posts on the Oculus website and landing page, Oculus for Business.
When a business buys Quest through the Oculus for Business platform for $ 1,000, they don’t get a consumer device. Instead, this Quest is specifically designed for their company with company-focused features such as kiosk demo mode and two years of corporate quality support via telephone, live chat, or email.
Quests Business Edition features a special operating system that does not access the typical Quest store to download games and other content that consumers face. Instead, businesses get unique features such as multiple device settings, the ability to load headsets with their own content to launch directly, and even remote access.
Multi-device settings will help speed up business at the event and for internal use. Using a separate version of the Oculus mobile application, businesses can manage and update multiple headsets at the same time with the application as a central hub.
When using Oculus for Business Search, the user interface is also different, placing company-approved content at the front and center rather than the need to download or access stores that are not designed for company use cases.
