Bought a Quest 2 a few days ago after reading that Meta was dropping the Facebook requirement in August 2022. I tried to set up the Quest 2 and it's still asking for Facebook... I have no option to sign in using my Oculus account that I use on my Quest 1... Was curious if anyone knew when in August 2022 the Meta accounts would launch?
Im not sure if by dropping the Facebook account requirement if they are going to transfer all to the new Meta account anyway .. Having both just seems double the workload.
In hindsight they would have been better off keeping the original Oculus account setup and just renaming it.
Maybe that is exactly what the Meta Account will be. Renamed and re-activated ?
