You can prepare to use your new headset prior to its arrival and create your Meta Account. If you have already received your new headset, you will begin with these steps.
Create your Meta account on your mobile device using your Facebook/Meta, Instagram or email account as shown in the video below.
- When selecting your Meta Username, keep in mind that this will be visible to other Meta users when interacting with them in Meta apps. We highly encourage fun, playful usernames that will make you feel empowered to explore the world.
- If you are setting up your Meta account before your headset arrives, you will need to select “Not Now” when they ask you which headset you are using. (see image below)
- The app is a nice companion to the headset, but after the initial set-up it is not required. People generally like to use the phone to cast what they are seeing to another device to share with their loved ones. Please use the keyboard feature to type out app names or friends’ names. When you select an app for download or a friend to connect with from the phone it is automatically added to the headset.
Once your headset arrives, please go here to complete your headset setup.
