How to Join The Metaverse

How to Join The Metaverse

The metaverse is fairly new to the tech world. A virtual space that simulates real life, it sounds great, almost as if it’s from a movie. However, to get into the digital space does require a process.

You will need a few things to get started, like a virtual reality headset, a stable internet connection, and probably a cryptocurrency wallet for good measure. The metaverse isn’t just an online video game, it’s an immersive experience in any virtual environment you can think of.

But first, let’s figure out how to join the metaverse and get the best experience possible.

The Virtual Experience Awaits

Access to the metaverse differs depending on the platform. You can visit gaming metaverses as a guest user using only a computer or smartphone, but to properly play, you’ll need a Windows PC and a cryptocurrency wallet. Other platforms necessitate the use of augmented reality glasses or a virtual reality headset.

Even if your PC is game-ready, it may not be enough. A metaverse platform hosting millions of people necessitates significant computing capacity, and for some metaverses, a standard computer is insufficient. That is why firms are attempting to build technology such as smart glasses to make it easier for people to connect to the metaverse.

To travel into the Metaverse, platforms such as Meta’s Horizon series require a VR headset. Meta’s Oculus Quest 2 headset has tracking cameras for rendering 3D scenes, as well as a directly integrated graphics card and storage component for processing needs. Really cutting-edge stuff.

What Hardware You Will Need

The most immersive method to view the metaverse is through a VR headset, such as the Oculus Quest 2. You just need to download the app for a suitable platform if you have a headset.

Here’s how you use the Oculus Quest 2 headset to visit the metaverse:

  • Turn on your computer and put on your Oculus Quest 2 headset.
  • From the Universal Menu, select the App Drawer (use any controller). Your list of installed apps will be displayed.
  • Choose your app.
  • Start the game/app.

Now you can dive into a full-fledged metaverse.

Are VR Headsets Necessary?

To reach the metaverse, you don’t always require a VR headset. A number of metaverse platforms are browser-based and do not necessitate any extra hardware. Some, such as Decentraland and Roblox, require only a computer or a smartphone.

Here’s how to get inside various metaverses without using a VR headset:


A popular marketplace where people can develop gaming experience Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) to buy and sell is Sandbox. While a headset is not required, it is advised that you have the MetaMask crypto wallet.

Here’s how you can get into the Sandbox metaverse:

  • To sign in, go to the Sandbox website and click the Sign In button in the upper right corner.
  • Connect your cryptocurrency wallet when requested (MetaMask is recommended).
  • Fill up your username, email address, and password.
  • On the left, click the Create button.
  • Download and install GameMaker on your computer.
  • Sign in to the app after opening it.

You may now play and create personalized Metaverse game experiences that you can mint into NFTs – just keep an eye on screen time for your children and yourself, as these experiences can be extremely absorbing (and addictive), which is great and bad at the same time.


The Decentraland metaverse is one of the immersive space’s most popular 3D virtual world platforms. Here’s how to get to it:

  • Navigate to the Decentraland website and click the Start Exploring button in the upper-right corner.
  • You have two choices: play as a guest or use your wallet.
  • The game will now load if you play as a visitor. If you choose to play with your wallet, you will be prompted to connect your crypto wallet before the game begins.
  • Guests in Decentraland can only explore the terrain and customize their avatar. You may actively participate in playing, buying land, and generating assets if you play with your pocketbook.

Facebook’s Metaverse Plans

Facebook is now known as Meta, a strong sign of how heavily the firm has bet its future on the Metaverse. Their Horizon Worlds series of metaverse platforms, similar to Facebook, are centered on user interactions and provide virtual places for events, hangouts, and collaboration.

However, this is merely the beginning of Meta’s journey into the metaverse. The firm has already committed billions of dollars in creating metaverse technology, and it’s evident that CEO Mark Zuckerberg believes in the metaverse and its potential to dramatically change how we work, play, shop, and live online.

The Metaverse Experience Will Change Daily Life

The metaverse is heading to new frontiers. At first, it was just an online gaming platform, but now it’s paving the way for a metaverse economy where there will be remote working environments, virtual property, digital assets, and so much more. It’s the perfect combination of a social network with a virtual land, and an extended reality.

It turns out Neal Stephenson’s imagination and the movie Ready Player One weren’t just for fiction. Tech companies are pushing the growth of these popular metaverse platforms by investing millions of dollars into it. Right now, celebrities like Travis Scott are making the most of this social platform by hosting virtual events, and major fashion brands are now releasing their new lines of virtual clothing.

Now that you’re equipped to enter the digital universe, make sure that you get the best of it.
