The Apple Vision Pro mixed reality headset can play so-called spatial videos, i.e. videos that were actually recorded in 3D. The iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max smartphones can capture spatial videos, but the Vision Pro is the only device that can play them back in all their glory. It looks like that’s about to change and Meta’s Quest VR headsets will be able to play spatial videos.✴ Platforms.
According to online sources in the meta application code✴ Quest for the iPhone, there was evidence of a feature that suggested some form of spatial video playback. Currently, four lines of code have been identified in the application that mention this feature, including those related to the ability to enable spatial video in the camera settings and load content of this type.
The source notes that spatial video support is already available in Quest headsets, although this has not been officially announced. This will probably change sooner or later and meta✴ I’ll try to capitalize as this type of content is becoming increasingly popular. The mixed reality headset Vision Pro will go on sale on February 2nd and is expected to be accompanied by a significant increase in user interest in creating spatial videos.
