Meta will not hold its F8 developer conference in 2022, the company announced on Wednesday.
“Similar to previous years, we are taking a short break in programming and will not be holding F8 in 2022 as we prepare for new initiatives, all tailored to the next chapter of the internet and also the next chapter of our business: Build the metaverse”, Diego Duarte Moreira of Meta said in a blog post. “Similar to the early stages of the web, building the metaverse at each stage will be a collaborative effort — with other companies, creators, and developers like you.”
Instead of F8, Moreira referred to Meta’s “first business messaging event,” dubbed conversations, which takes place on May 19th. Moreira also said there will be another Connect event “later this year” focused on the company’s “VR, AR, and Metaverse platform offerings.” At the October 2021 Connect, Facebook announced its renaming to Metatherefore, it seems likely that the company will have some important news to share at this event.
More big tech conferences will be pushed ahead in the coming months. The Google I/O takes place on May 11th and 12thwhile Apple just announced on Tuesday that the 2022 Worldwide Developers Conference is scheduled for June 6-10. Both will be available entirely online. And it should be IFA 2022 a personal event this should take place in person at the beginning of September.
