An update on creating events in Meta Horizon Worlds As we’ve refocused our development in Worlds on improving the overall quality of the platform, we’ve taken extra time to review some deprecated features that don’t meet our newfound quality standards.
As part of this effort, we have made the decision to discontinue the event creation tool. As of today, May 9, you will no longer see the option to create events in Worlds. All existing events that would take place after today can continue as planned.
While events have been a powerful way for some of you to connect with your engaged communities, we’ve also heard your feedback. It is clear that our current event system is not meeting the needs of our community at large, so we are making the difficult decision to discontinue this feature in Worlds. It’s too early for us to say what the long-term future holds for creator events in Worlds, but when we have more to share, our creators will be the first to know.
As an embodied and synchronous space, we continue to envision Worlds as a place where people can come together, spontaneously or at coordinated places and times, to have great experiences with their communities. Although the event creation tool is going away, you will still see some official events in the UI. Over time, we will continue to test and learn from these events, which can help inform what the future holds for events more broadly.
Thank you for all you do to make Worlds the vibrant place it is today.
