Meta has taken a significant step towards enhancing the overall mixed reality ecosystem by opening up its Horizon OS platform to third-party hardware manufacturers. Built on top of Android, Horizon OS provides a robust foundation for developers to create immersive mixed reality experiences. This strategic move positions Horizon OS as a potential Android equivalent for mixed reality platforms, akin to Apple's visionOS. By embracing an open ecosystem approach, Meta aims to foster innovation and accelerate the adoption of mixed reality technology across a broader range of devices and applications. Developers now have the opportunity to leverage the familiarity and extensive resources of the Android ecosystem while tapping into the cutting-edge capabilities of mixed reality hardware from various manufacturers. This decision could catalyze the growth of a vibrant mixed reality ecosystem, driving competition and offering consumers a diverse array of mixed reality experiences tailored to their preferences and needs.
