Spaces use the virtual subtext to let users teleport around the globe, share photos and videos using virtual pop-up screens, and perform a number of silly tricks like doodling sunglasses and hats to wear. Facebook will now let Spaces users stream its existing library of 360-degree video.

Facebook says you’ll also be able to illustrate within Spaces using the VR tool Quill, a stylized drawing tool created to help with the VR.

The social media giant also announced 3D Posts at the Oculus Connect 4 VR conference. It is a new type of News Feed post that lets people create 3D objects, then post them directly to Facebook. All Facebook users will be able to view and interact with the 3D objects — even without a VR headset.

Also at the conference, Facebook announced the new Oculus Go headset, a new price tag for Oculus Rift and many other things.
