VICE - Metaverse is not just one virtual world, but lots of smaller free-roaming worlds made by different developers with different concepts. Google, Facebook, Amazon, Apple and Microsoft all have investments in some form or another in the metaverse. Still, we're very much in Nokia 3210 era just now. In December, Tinder CEO Renate Nyborg told Reuters that the company has "been talking about a Tinderverse internally, which is more about blurring the boundaries between offline and online". Ross Buchanan from Vice has recently tested Metaverse to see if he could find a date. He joined Planet Theta's Saturday night beta test. Planted Theta the world's first ever VR dating app. There will be four different types of places users will be able to visit: the micro-date, the coffee date, social areas (like a nightclub) and the dating areas (think: virtual apartments or "enchanted walks").
