One of the most frequently asked questions we get is: "When will you be compatible with other VR headsets like Oculus Quest?" We are excited to say that our talented team is hard at work on a version of Floreo for the Quest.
While we don't have a timeline for the release just yet, we will be looking for beta testers in the next few months. Please email us at email@example.com you are interested in being a beta tester and you already have an iPad from at least 2016 and an Oculus Quest (please note, you will need both devices in order to qualify and participate as a beta tester). We hope you are as excited as we are about this upcoming expansion!
