On Monday, Tencent announced that it has begun testing a Music Zone "virtual room" on its QQ Music app, as well as non-fungible tokens as profile pictures (PFP ​​NFTs). These PFP NFTs are two-dimensional animated figures based on Zhixin Chain, a blockchain developed by Tencent.

QQ Music will introduce the "Music Zone" virtual room feature, allowing users to invite friends' avatars to visit and listen to music in the same space. According to Tencent QQ's official music account, Android phone users can already test the PFP NFT feature and virtual room. Each PFP costs 0.88 yuan ($0.13) and has a total circulation of 40,000 copies.

Tencent founded the extended reality (XR) business by citing Steven Ma, senior vice president of the Chinese tech giant's Interactive Entertainment Group gaming division (IEG). Over the next four to five years, Tencent will create "benchmark" virtual reality (VR) products, including software, game content, OS, software development kits and hardware, Ma said.
