Meta rejects Google’s request to collaborate on virtual reality

According to a story published in The Information on Friday, Meta Platforms (META.O) has chosen against partnering with Alphabet (GOOGL.O) to use Google’s Android XR platform for its Quest virtual and mixed reality headsets.

According to the story, which cited a source involved in the discussions, Google had proposed that Meta collaborate with its new software platform, which is being created for virtual reality, augmented reality, and mixed reality headsets.

However, the report suggests that this kind of collaboration would impede Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s ambition to “own the next computational platform for AR, VR, and mixed reality.”

Unnamed Meta personnel were quoted in the report stating that Meta is already in discussions with hardware companies, such as LG Electronics (066570.KS) in South Korea, about developing new VR devices with Quest’s software.

Alphabet, LG Electronics, and Meta did not reply right away.

According to the article, an open-source version of Google’s Android operating system is now used by Meta’s Quest devices.

The mixed reality headset Vision Pro was unveiled by Apple (AAPL.O) last month.
