When Is The Metaverse Release Date?
If you are talking about when Metaverse will be released from the world of technology altogether, then the answer is: when it's ready. It is still in its early stages and it will take time for it to mature and become a reality. And this is why the release date for the Metaverse is not known at the moment. Anyhow, it is happening!
But, If you are talking about the Facebook Metaverse, then the release date has not been announced yet. The concept of the Facebook Metaverse has already been developed, but the product is still in its early stages and it's not mature enough to be considered a real thing. Therefore, the release date of the Facebook Metaverse is not known yet.
That said, Meta CEO Zuckerberg predicted in the Connect Conference 2021 that the Metaverse "will be mainstream in 5-10 years." Indeed, we can consider Meta's VR app Horizon Worlds as the first step toward Zuckerberg’s Metaverse.
Meanwhile, Microsoft launched its corporate version of Metaverse dubbed Microsoft Mesh. It is a mixed-reality platform powered by Azure which enables people in different physical locations to join collaborative and shared holographic experiences on any device. However, it is not the same as the Metaverse.
How Can I Access The Metaverse?
The Metaverse is the Internet, enhanced and upgraded to consistently deliver 3D content. So, it will only be accessible through a Metaverse VR headset. This will give users full immersion into the content they are experiencing. However, the Metaverse hasn't been released yet. So, currently, it's not accessible to anyone.
In the meantime, you can access popular Metaverse platforms like The Sandbox, Decentraland, and Axie Infinity. No bulky VR headsets or expensive setups are required for this purpose. You can access these Metaverses from your smartphone or laptop.
