Meta pauses its F8 conference for 2022

Meta announced on Wednesday to not hold its annual F8 developer conference this year, as it gears up for new projects in the metaverse.

Meta’s Diego Duarte Moreira wrote in a blog post, “Similar to previous years, we are taking a brief break in programming and will not hold F8 in 2022 while we gear up on new initiatives all geared towards the next chapter of the internet, and the next chapter of our company as well: building the metaverse.”

The blog post further reads, “Similar to the early stages of the web, building the metaverse will be a collaborative effort at every stage — with other companies, creators and developers like you.”

Instead of F8, Meta relies on Conversations, the company’s “inaugural business messaging event,” set for May 19th. Apart from Conversations, the corporation will hold another Connect event later this year. The said event focuses on the firm’s “VR, AR, and metaverse platform offerings.”

Since 2019, the firm has not hosted a live F8. Due to COVID-19, both F8 2020 and 2021 were only available online. This isn’t the first time Meta has bypassed F8 entirely. It had no conferences in 2009, 2012, or 2013.

However, other major technology conferences are set to take place in the following months. Google I/O will be held on May 11th and 12th, while Apple revealed on Tuesday that the 2022 Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) would be held on June 6th through 10th. Both will be completely accessible online.
