Now Playing: Facebook is making its voice control for the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset available to everyone at the end of September, but its not yet clear when you’ll be able start using it.
We learned about the feature a few weeks ago, and now we know more.
According to a Facebook post, “we will begin rolling out a voice control feature for the Rift at the beginning of September.”
You’ll be asked to enter a username and password to get started.
The company says the feature will only work with the Oculus headset and will not work with other devices like the PlayStation VR.
The announcement comes as Instagram is also rolling out an Oculus-compatible version of its app.
While Instagram says it’s planning to make the feature available to all users in the fall, that hasn’t happened yet.
If you’ve already started using Instagram, you can still do it.
For now, Instagram is rolling out the feature in beta and will begin to roll out it to the general public in October.
This should make the Facebook-owned app a much better fit for the virtual reality headsets, but it’ll be interesting to see how the feature stacks up against Instagram’s other features like Instagram Stories.
If you’re planning on using Facebook’s Oculus headset, you’ll also need to use Snapchat, which is the Facebook app that you’re using to keep up with your friends and keep up on the latest in social news.
The feature will allow you to set up a Snapchat account with the same username and/or password as the one you use for Instagram.
You can also use Instagram to send your friends reminders about upcoming events.
This will be great if you want to send someone a photo of a party, and you can then use Snapchat to get it sent to them right after.
Instagram also lets you add your photos to the Feed and display them on the top of posts that you make.
