Key notes

  • You’ll soon be able to open a Microsoft 365 app on Meta Quest headsets.
  • These apps can also be run side-by-side, as the demonstration shows.
  • Microsoft also launched the Xbox Game Pass on Quest not too long ago.

Not too long after launching the Xbox Game Pass on Quest, Microsoft took no time to roll out the basic Office suite for free on the Meta Quest Store. 

Folks over at Android Central tried Office apps on Meta Quest 3, and honestly, it looks straight out of sci-fi movies. You can even use any Meta Quest headset: Oculus Quest, Meta Quest 2, 3, or Pro. 

The report says that Microsoft shrinks the size of these apps to an impressive estimation of 1.3 MB each. Once you log into your Microsoft account, you can download Excel, Word, and PowerPoint on the store without charge. 

These apps can also be run side-by-side, as the demonstration shows.

Microsoft has been longing to team up with Meta to bring its products to the Quest headsets. Last year, the Redmond-based tech giant even announced that devices like Quest 2 and Quest Pro would be getting its Teams and Office apps. 

Meta Store is not officially selling the new original Oculus Quest now, but you can get Meta Quest 2 now on the store for $249. The deal includes a free Elite Strap during this holiday season.
