In this article, we will go through:
This year’s Meta Connect XR conference will take place on October 11th at the following times 1 pm ET / 10 am PT / 7 pm CET.
Here is a breakdown of the specific times:
Like last year’s Meta Connect event, the XR developer Connect conference will once again be online to the benefit of people interested in participating. Livestreamed keynotes and sessions will show “the building of the metaverse and the future of augmented and virtual reality” and can be viewed on the Reality Labs Facebook page.
As confirmed on Joe Rogan’s podcast by Mark Zuckerberg, the headset formerly known as Project Cambria, now officially named Meta Quest Pro, will be announced at the Connect conference. Similarly, we should expect further details of its features, design, shipping date, and price.
It is doubtful that any other headsets will be alluded to or announced, despite the impressive hardware roadmap Meta has for their virtual and augmented reality products.
What we should expect at Meta Connect this year is live-streamed developer sessions and keynotes covering innovative prototypes and their mixed reality technologies. One is Holocake 2, featuring a combined lens solution of pancake VR optics with a holographic waveguide for superior mixed reality results.

Meta’s ultimate goal is building and realizing the metaverse. Because of this, we are likely to see a more elaborate plan on their Horizon platforms. Horizon Worlds was announced and released in Beta in December 2021. It is a social VR platform for people to connect as virtual avatars.
In August of this year, Mark Zuckerberg teased that Horizon Worlds would get a graphical improvement of their avatars, making them more realistic. This further coincides with the face and eye tracking capabilities expected on the upcoming Meta Quest Pro headset.
At this year’s Meta Connect conference, online attendees can expect to see updates on Meta Quest Pro (former Project Cambria), developer sessions on Reality Labs’ innovative mixed reality technologies, and further details on Meta’s Horizon VR platforms. The conference will be live-streamed on October 11th at 1 pm ET / 10 am PT / 7 pm CET.
