(Relevant) If there’s one thing we’ve all missed during this pandemic, it’s meetings.

On Thursday, Facebook CEO and friendship expert Mark Zuckerberg unveiled Horizon Workrooms.

If you’ve already got your $300 Oculus Rift headset, the app is free, and represents Facebook’s biggest attempt to shift VR technology out of niche markets like gaming and into the mainstream.
