Apart from Facebook, companies like Microsoft and IBM are also working on their metaverse. The Meta branding was first seen on the beta versions of WhatsApp for Android and iOS. After that, the branding of Meta can also be seen on Facebook Messenger, Instagram, and Facebook app.

Metaverse may have suddenly come into the limelight today, but it is a very old word

However, it is not yet clear whether there will be any change in the features of the Facebook app apart from the new branding. In the year 2019, Facebook’s branding was associated with Instagram and WhatsApp. The first branding happened after the acquisition of Instagram and WhatsApp by Facebook.

What is Metaverse?

Metaverse may have suddenly come into the limelight today, but it is a very old word. It was mentioned by Neil Stephenson in his dystopian novel “Snow Crash” in 1992. In Stephenson’s novel, the metaverse meant a world in which people connected with the digital world in the game with the help of gadgets such as headphones and virtual reality.

Companies like Microsoft and IBM are also working on their metaverse.

Metaverse is already being used for gaming as well. Cryptocurrencies are used in the metaverse. Simply put, the Metaverse is a new world of the Internet where people will be present even if they are not present, although the Metaverse will take a long time to complete.
