“From new social apps that let you attend live events from the best seat in the house to more intimate experiences that explore pressing social issues, Oculus Go will change the way you watch, play, and hang out with friends while offering you new perspectives,” Facebook said in a statement.

At F8, Facebook also unveiled Oculus TV which will be launched later in May with partners like Pluto TV, Red Bull TV, and the Facebook video app for TV — and even more partners like ESPN coming later this year.
