Newly datamined info about Discord integration in the Meta Quest App

Though it is not known how this integration would work. But it is speculated that Discord will most likely be integrated through the Meta Quest app. As this info was datamined from the Meta Quest app.

This feature will help Meta in its efforts to mainstream Metaverse and VR gaming. As gamers widely use Discord all around the world. The dataminers also found mentions of QR code pairing. It is a feature long requested by the users.

Meta, through its subsidiary, Reality Labs, has been at the forefront of VR technology for some years now. They are far ahead of other competitors like Sony, which is now looking set to catch up to Meta with the release of PSVR2, and Apple, which is still finding its feet in the market.

Because of the ever-growing competition, Meta has to be on its toes. It works to provide the best experience to its VR headset users. Integrating Discord and adding QR code pairing features into its VR headsets is part of those efforts. It is unclear when this feature will be officially released.

It is also not clear whether these features will be available on all Meta Quest headsets or just the Quest 3. But there is a possibility that the feature might only be released for Quest 3 as there were also mentions of Eureka, the codename for Quest 3.
