'Horizon Workrooms' is a virtual meeting room where even people working remotely can gather in the same place.

You can share your ideas on the whiteboard that comes with your room.

What you typed on your keyboard is ...

The same input will be made on the virtual keyboard brought into the virtual meeting room by scanning earlier. You can take notes and check the files at hand during the meeting.

It will be reflected on the virtual whiteboard.

You can leave the contents of the whiteboard as it is for as long as you need it, and you can output it as an image to your PC at any time.

Also, if you don't have a VR headset, you can join the virtual room with a video call. The maximum number of people in the meeting room is 16 for VR and 50 for video calls.

You can use the 'Horizon Workrooms' service for free, but you need a 'Workrooms' account in addition to your Oculus and Facebook accounts.

We have received several reports from Japanese users that it is quite convenient.

A video of Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook responding to an interview in a studio set up in a virtual space is also released.
