Creators can find the new rating option in the World tab in Build mode, which can be adjusted anytime.

The change comes as Meta unbundles Facebook accounts from the core experience of its Quest VR headsets and replaces them with Meta accounts which require a name and “date of birth so we can verify your age,” the report said.

Facebook required people to use the name “they go by in everyday life” with its earlier policy, but that’s not the case for Meta accounts.

Recently, Meta announced a new setting known as Voice Mode in Horizon Worlds that gives users more control over their experience.The feature allows the Quest 2 VR headset users to choose how they hear people who are not on the friends list, including the option to not hear unwanted conversations at all.
