Description: Pluto is creating a new way for you to connect to anyone from anywhere in the world by enabling more natural virtual communication. It runs alongside SteamVR apps for direct, contextual, and comfortable connections that transcend text, voice, and video.
Review: While I can see why people might use Pluto for working on games or possibly virtual meetings, but most of us will have no use for this whatsoever. I am willing to defend the game for its “always-on” policy as that is the best way to make it more compatible with other games and systems (especially the VR eco-systems). But most apps and games have their own communication systems built in so there really is no need for it. At the end of the day, this app works and gets the job done, but it’s ultimately pointless these days.
