    No auto update here yet.  Is there a way to manually update?

    Hi, I have checked on the settings on my Quest, it is the New OS version. I got no update messages or popups. It did it alone in background ?

    But now the Home looks more blurry, and also 360 youtube videos even on 4k, it is very blurry (youtube from Browser or from youtube VR app) but also with less antialiasing, what happened ?
    Could WE know exactly what is the changelog did ???

    Thank you !

    Are you sure about the blurryness? Can someone else confirm this?

    Not sure if it is the update but  all fullscreen things (backgrounds, 360 vidéos even in 2k or 4k....) Looks more blurry than Yesterday... Maybe it is my eyes that are tired, but 360 youtube videos looks more blurry now.... Maybe it is my eyes ( of course the headset is well fitted to my head and aligned to my eyes).
    Also little more aliasing on edges I noticed.
    I'm also waiting some other feedbacks.

    My headset has updated.  I've looked at the Home screen and personally can see no difference from before.  I had a quick look at YouTube 360 but I'm not familiar enough with any content to be able to compare with what went before.

    I updated and had no screen tearing and white flickering so far. 
    That sounds good.  I was only referring to blurriness when I said I see no difference. By that I mean it looks fine to me!

    I notice that blurry effect more in youtube on the Browser (not the youtube VR app, it was already a little blurry), and only for the fullscreen 360 videos.

    Before it was clear and near perfect on 2k and 4k.
    Games like beatsaber seems to not be affected.

    It is like a New codec for video is used or something like that and it is limiting the quality selected on youtube.

    And now YouTube via the Browser looks the same quality than the youtube VR app. Yesterday, youtube via Browser was on much more good quality for fullscreen 360.

    Thank god the guardian fix came quickly! Haven’t had a chance to test it yet, but hopefully I can go back to setting my wall to normal dimensions and not set it off with every fast movement.

    Like others.. mine hasn’t updated itself either.  How do you trigger the update?

    cheers, Steve

    I’ve just checked my quest and the update has been installed but I still have the download queued problem with my updates and a game I just got.

    Mine has not updated- can you explain how to do a manual update...many people are asking

    Update has seemed to fix all the screen tearing and graphical glitches. Also I have not had and crackling in the built in speakers  yet but it’s a bit early to tell. We just need a update to fix the hissing when using headphones.

    Still have some pops in headphone but the screen seems to be ok now.

    Hey there oculus, is the update regional? some of us didn't get it yet, or do we need a certain battery percentage for it to update? Thank you!

    Great! But, are these the only release notes? What "Various performance improvements" are we talking about?

    Need release notes for sure. Take some inspiration from Epic on detailed release notes.

    Still waiting for the update to roll out on my unit. No auto-update yet. How to manually trigger the deployment?

    It seems that the 360 video quality on youtube is good again. And I have also some New options on the settings menu, for dev (frequency)...

    Strange but all is ok again, and update done fully

    Hey all - this update was out to 100% of users as of yesterday late afternoon (PST). The updates happen when your device is on, but not active (i.e. sleeping). It's very likely many of you have received the update, but didn't notice because it's a silent process. To confirm you're on the latest, please head to the Settings > See All > About menu and check the OS update. As mentioned in the title, you're looking for 256550.6170.0.

    as of now 1:16pm EST on 6/7 i'm still on the previous version.. i've restarted several times. The update has not pushed.  Why isn't there a way to check for updates.
