Meta launches Quest+ subscription for VR headsets

Meta Platforms has launched Meta Quest+, a subscription-based service for its virtual reality (VR) headsets.
Meta Quest Pro VR headsetChief Executive Mark Zuckerberg, in a broadcast channel on social media app Instagram, said the Meta Quest+ subscription will be available from Monday at $7.99 per month, or $59.99 annually, for its Quest 2, Pro and soon for Quest 3.

Apple has entered the market dominated by Meta, showcasing its $3,499 augmented reality headset called the Vision Pro. Still, Apple’s headset is three times the cost of the priciest headset from Meta.

Meta in March had cut the prices of its headsets as its bold bets on the metaverse failed to make a big splash, Reuters news report said.

The US-based social media company’s flagship VR headset Meta Quest Pro is priced at $999.99, down from its launch price of $1,499.99, and Quest 2 is being sold for $299.99, according to Meta’s website.
