Key leader and vice president of virtual reality at Meta Horizon leaves Meta

A spokeswoman for the firm revealed on Friday that Vivek Sharma, who served as vice president of virtual reality at Meta Horizon, will be departing the company.

According to CNBC, Sharma has been employed by Meta, the company that is the parent of Facebook, for the past six years. During that time, he has held senior positions in the departments of digital stores and games. Additionally, Sharma is the head of the most important business unit at Meta Horizon, which is concerned with Metaverse technology.

In his role as vice president of Meta Horizon, Sharma, who is located in Seattle, handled a variety of virtual reality (VR) initiatives. One of these projects was the Horizon Worlds service, which is comparable to the virtual reality online game Second Life.

Other products from Horizon include the virtual reality office collaboration tool known as Horizon Workrooms and the live event app known as Horizon Venues. This summer, Horizon Venues was integrated into the main Worlds app.

“Thanks to his leadership, the Horizon product group has built a strong team with an ambitious vision,” a Meta spokesperson said in a statement. “Metta continues to be a resource for developing great leaders, and we look forward to Vivek’s next chapter.”

The Metaverse is a collection of digital worlds that can be accessed by users using virtual reality. The company Meta is wagering that this will be the next step and the future of computers.

On a recent edition of Joe Rogan’s podcast, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg revealed that his company will release new virtual reality (VR) technology in October. October is traditionally the month in which Meta hosts its Connect VR conference.
