Meta Connect, the annual product summit from the company behind Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, and the headsets formerly known as Oculus, is revealing its latest announcements.

If you’re like me, you’re probably wondering — how exactly do I watch it? Because Meta hasn’t been 100 percent clear on that point until just now, as the event was supposed to begin, announcing a 30-minute delay.

The answer: it’s right here, live on Facebook.

Meta Connect 2023 was scheduled to kick off at 10AM 10:30AM PT / 1PM 1:30PM ET, and the company pitched it as “a two-day virtual event focused on AI and virtual, mixed and augmented realities.” This, we all know, means the company will fully reveal its Quest 3 headset, appeal to gamers, and attempt to wash the stink of Quest Pro away.

If you clicked the big “Watch” button on the company’s Meta Connect website earlier, it simply took you to the company’s Facebook page. Ditto the link I recently saw the company share on social media. But now there’s a livestream.

I expect you might eventually find the keynote on its YouTube page, possibly its Instagram, and possibly on X, formerly known as Twitter.

Me, I will be following The Verge’s StoryStream, where we’ll not only publish our thoughts live but also drop each major story from the show.

Stay tuned!

Update September 27th, 1:10PM ET: Added a link to the livestream, and that Meta has delayed the keynote by 30 minutes.

Update September 27th, 1:24PM ET: Added a video embed of the livestream.
