Meta is bringing two of its virtual spaces together: Horizon Venues and Horizon Worlds. The former is the virtual venue where Meta offers VR viewing of events from music concerts to sports matches.

Previously separate, it will now have a ‘dedicated space’ inside the bigger Horizon Worlds, which is where Meta is focusing a decent chunk of its metaverse-building resources.

“We’ve experimented with portals between Horizon Venues and Horizon Worlds over the past few months, and we’ve seen just how powerful it can be when you can seamlessly jump between a game world to a hang out space—then head right into a big show with your friends,” is how Meta explained the move.

There’s a catch: Horizon Worlds is only available in the US and Canada, and the standalone Venues app is shutting down on 6 June, so people elsewhere in the world will only be able to watch Meta’s events in highlights form.

The company says it will be expanding international access to Horizon Worlds this summer though.
