“We are pleased to be partnered with Pico to bring Firefox Reality to their users, especially the opportunity to reach more people through their large Enterprise audience,” says Andre Vrignaud, Head of Mixed Reality Platform Strategy at Mozilla. “We look forward to integrating Hubs by Mozilla to bring fully immersive collaboration to business.”
Mozilla will also be offering Hubs to all Pico devices, which can allow for private video conferencing (opens in new tab), with the virtual environment branded as required. Web-based access means that additional internet resources can be accessed and used as required in meetings.
