San Francisco: Tech giant Meta, formerly known as Facebook, has announced the launch of a digital clothing store – Avatars Store – which 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 begin rolling out next week in select countries and will initially feature digital outfits from Balenciaga, Prada and Thom Browne.
The tech giant hasn’t revealed any pricing information for these digital outfits.
Recently, Meta added parental controls to all Quest VR headsets that will allow parents to keep tabs on underage users’ screen time and receive approval requests for purchases.
The company said it is starting to roll out parental supervision tools to all Quest headsets.
