Meet Wol - Niantic's first mixed reality experience powered by 8th Wall

May 30, 2023

While Wol can be engaged with on iOS and Android smartphones, it was optimized for use on the Meta Quest Pro which blends your physical and virtual environment together with full-color mixed reality passthrough. Leveraging the room setup feature on Quest, the Wol experience understands where the walls and surfaces are within your room and uses them to transform your space into the redwood forest. When your visit comes to an end, Wol will fly back into the redwood forest until you return for another conversation. “We are excited to see great content like Wol being built for Meta Quest devices using the 8th Wall platform. It’s a great example of what is possible with WebXR and mixed reality,” says Nilesh Patel, Product Lead (Developer Platform) at Meta.
