Roblox has over one million downloads on Meta Quest
Roblox, a popular online gaming platform, recently launched an open beta for Quest 2 and Pro devices, available via App Lab. Within the first five days of its launch, the open beta on Meta Quest devices has surpassed one million downloads, as announced by Roblox CEO David Baszucki.
During the open beta of Meta Quest, users aged 13 and older can access Roblox, but they currently cannot purchase Robux, the in-game currency. However, they can still buy items in the game.
Meta (formerly known as Facebook) sees this open beta as an opportunity for the Roblox developer community to optimize their existing games for Quest and create new ones for virtual reality (VR). It also allows developers to gather input and feedback from the Quest community to refine their VR experiences. This experimentation and learning process will continue until it is fully released on the Meta Quest Store.
Its cross-platform capabilities enable users to connect, play, and socialize with friends across various devices, including Xbox, iOS, Android, and desktop. Parents can utilize existing Meta Quest parental supervision tools to ensure a level of safety and supervision for their children while using it.
