In order to create specialised chipsets for virtual reality goods, Meta and Qualcomm have teamed up.

In order to "collaborate on a new age of spatial computing," driven by Qualcomm's Snapdragon extended reality platforms, the two U.S. technology behemoths have formed a multi-year deal.

The virtual reality headsets from Meta are referred to as Quest products.

The Facebook parent company has placed its future on the metaverse, a phrase that covers virtual and augmented reality technology, since its redesign in 2021.

It makes sense for Meta to concentrate on custom processors as it seeks to differentiate its headsets and perhaps produce distinctive user experiences.

The duration of the agreement between the companies as well as its financial details weren't made public.

In spite of wider losses in its Reality Labs subsidiary, it comes as Meta prepares to introduce a new virtual reality headset in October.
