<article>
   <section class="page">
<p>Facebook is making it possible to hang out with your friends in virtual reality using Spaces, a new app the company launched Tuesday for the Oculus Rift. The app will allow people to join a shared, immersive video call, represented by a personalized avatar.</p><p>Using Spaces, people can hang out around a virtual reality table, share three-dimensional drawings and use the Rift’s built-in microphone to chat with one another. Users can also surround themselves and their friends with 360-degree photos and videos from Facebook’s library of content.</p><p>People who don’t have a Rift headset can also be included in a Spaces hangout by using Facebook’s Messenger video calling functionality. Users will be able to view a Space from their smartphone, and have their video call shown inside the virtual reality environment.</p><p class="jumpTag"><a href="/article/3190796/virtual-reality/facebook-wants-you-to-hang-out-with-your-friends-in-vr.html#jump">To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here[/url]</p></section></article>
