What You Need to Know Before Meta Connect 2022

What is Meta Connect and how do I watch it?

Meta Connect is our annual conference for developers, creators, tech enthusiasts and others who want to hear about our latest efforts to build the future of connection within virtual and augmented reality.  

Anyone can join this free digital event on October 11, 2022 at 10 AM PT. All Meta Connect content will be streamed live and available afterward on the Reality Labs Facebook page.
