Facebook added a live video broadcasting option to its Spaces VR application. From now on, Spaces users can position a “virtual camera” in front of them to broadcast two-dimensional views to people outside of the virtual world.

Viewers can send feedback and comments just like a normal Facebook Live video. This is part of Facebook’s ongoing efforts to overcome the gap between VR headsets of the first generation and more traditional computer platforms.

Live video streaming makes a lot of sense for Facebook. This who use Spaces are very less and few users already own one of the Oculus Rift VR headsets necessary to use Spaces.

But with Live Streaming integration, Spaces users can reach a much broader audience, and also give non-VR users an idea of what the technology is capable of.

Spaces is only available for Oculus Rift, and as it relies on body movements and body language to create a virtual presence experience, it will not be available for the lower class of virtual reality glasses like Samsung’s Gear VR.
