Meta wants to style your digital avatar

Meta is slowly building its metaverse digital ecosystem where avatars can style their hair, while users enjoy better privacy controls for a secure experience.

Meta, formerly known as Facebook, is launching a digital clothing store — Avatars Store — that will allow users to purchase outfits for their avatar.

In a post on Facebook, CEO Mark Zuckerberg said he launched “Avatars Store” on Facebook, Instagram and Messenger so users can buy digital clothes to style their avatars.

“Digital goods will be an important medium for self-expression in the metaverse and a big driver of the creative economy. I’m excited to add more brands and bring it to virtual reality (VR) soon,” added Zuckerberg.

The online store will start rolling out next week in select countries and will initially feature digital outfits from Balenciaga, Prada and Thom Browne.

The company said it is starting to roll out parental supervision tools to all Quest headsets.
