Starting today, you’re no longer required to log into your Meta VR devices using a Facebook account. Find out all about Meta accounts and Meta Horizon profiles on our blog post. You can now set up a Meta account using your email address or Facebook account.
If you currently access Meta VR products with an Oculus account, you can continue doing so until January 1st, 2023. After that date, you’ll need to set up a Meta account to continue using your VR device.
Meta accounts give you more choice when it comes to how you log into VR and whether Facebook and Instagram are part of your experience. When you set up a Meta account, we’ll migrate your existing information (including apps, achievements, and friends) to this account so you can dive back in.
After creating my new Meta account via email, I can no longer log-in in to neither oculus.com websites or Oculus Desktop. My device was correctly linked to the new account, so I have my Quest app, but that's it. No more desktop VR for now. I hope the problem will be corrected soon.
Meta accounts are starting to become available today. If you can't create your account just yet or are having trouble logging in after creating your Meta account, please wait a few hours and try again. Thanks for your patience!
So far it's worked smoothly. Desktop and Quest 2 now on a Meta account with no Facebook account.
In the Quest 2, it popped up a panel asking me to sign in with facebook or oculus account. I clicked the close button on the bottom left. That brought up a code to type into meta.com/devices. Once I did that, my headset was on the Meta account and did a reboot.
After updating my Oculus developer/Facebook --> Meta.com, I've encountered the same issue. Oculus PC app won't authenticate, which leads to an unresolvable website. I uninstalled and reinstalled a fresh copy of Oculus for PC and received an error message that this version is no longer supported. Given my investment in PC VR content, I sure hope this is resolved soon.
