Globe Telecom has announced a major update to Virtual Hangouts, its interactive platform. Initially created to provide a digital experience that acts as a “passion portal” for the younger generation of users, Virtual Hangouts will soon be delivering an immersive “phygital” experience in the metaverse.
Using technology to bridge the physical and digital worlds, Globe Virtual Hangouts metaverse promises unique interactive activities that visitors can explore. Users can create their avatar and chat and do video calls with their fellow Gen Zs inside the portal.
Surprise celebrity guests and special prizes, among them a Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 Phone, also await everyone inside this new platform.
The event will also have a 360 gallery featuring “Timplada: The Art of Ilonggo Cuisine,” an exhibition of 10 artworks inspired by Ilonggo food from the Iloilo Museum of Contemporary Art (ILOMOCA), the first art institution in the Visayas and Mindanao. The pioneering exhibit on Virtual Hangouts was first showcased in the last quarter of 2021 in collaboration with the National Commission for Culture and the Arts.
Globe Virtual Hangouts started in 2020, where Gen Zs can hang out with each other, showcase their passions, and see all the happenings that Globe Prepaid has in store.
Early this year, it created the Passion Portal where Gen Zs got to turn their passion into a profession through Globe Prepaid’s Virtual Hangouts Masterclasses.
