Virtual Reality is certainly an innovative solution to mental health problems. However, some reviews in Oculus Store show that there are still many advancements needed. Virtual Reality is a new thing, and the learning curve is steep. Customers, especially those with physical or mental disabilities, still find it hard to use compared to mobile apps. In other words, it needs to be more user-friendly. In addition, many people complain about the quality of the paid content and show regret in purchasing the lifetime access.
The good news is that the company recently acquired a world-building platform, Eden, which will improve the quality of artworks and soundscapes in the digital world. In addition, it will also enable users to customize their experience and build strong connections in the metaverse. Therefore, it is expected that there will be a great improvement in the user experience in the future.
