Case Summary

The Federal Trade Commission authorized an administrative complaint against the proposed merger between virtual reality (VR) giant Meta and Within Unlimited, the VR studio that markets Supernatural, a leading VR fitness app. Formerly known as Facebook Inc., Meta sells the most widely used VR headset, operates a widely used VR app store, and already owns many popular VR apps. The agency alleges that Meta’s proposed acquisition of Within would harm competition and dampen innovation in the U.S. markets for fitness and dedicated-fitness VR apps. The evidentiary hearing is scheduled for Feb. 13, 2023 at 10 a.m. ET before an Administrative Law Judge at the FTC’s headquarters at 600 Pennsylvania Ave. N.W., Room 532.
