The company has more than 50 games and experiences for "Oculus Quest". The all-in-one VR system comes with "Touch" controllers, so the users can interact with people and objects in a natural way.

Here is a video of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg trying out the Oculus Quest himself:

The company said it has also improved built-in audio for high-quality, immersive sound with deeper bass.

“With the introduction of ‘Oculus Quest’, we’ve completed our first generation of best-in-class VR headsets. ‘Oculus Go’ remains the easiest and most affordable way to get into VR, while ‘Oculus Rift’ leverages the power of your PC to push the limits of what’s possible.”
