FOV stands for field of view, or field of vision. This is the range of what a user can see. For example, your FOV in a video game is how much of a given level you can see on your screen at once. Meanwhile, your FOV when wearing a VR headset determines how much of the landscape ahead of you is visible when you’re wearing the headset.
