The meta makes life even more difficult for Horizon Worlds creators
An update on event creation in Meta Horizon Worlds As we’ve refocused our Worlds development towards improving the overall quality of the platform, we’ve taken extra time to look at some legacy features that aren’t up to our renewed quality standards.
As part of this effort, we have made the decision to discontinue the event creation tool. Starting today, May 9th, you will no longer see the option to create events in Worlds. Any existing events that were already scheduled to occur after today may still continue as scheduled.
While events have been an effective way for some of you to connect with engaged communities, we’ve also heard your feedback. It is clear that our current event system does not meet the needs of our community at large, so we are making the difficult decision to discontinue this feature at Worlds. It’s too early for us to say what the long-term future holds for creator events at Worlds, but when we have more to share, our creators will be the first to know.
As an embodied and synchronous space, we continue to envision worlds as a place where people can come together, either spontaneously or in coordinated places and times, to have amazing experiences with their communities. Although the event creation tool disappears, you will continue to see some official events in the user interface. Over time, we will continue to test and learn from these events, which can help inform more about what the future holds for events.
Thank you for all you do to make Worlds the vibrant place it is today.
