Quest / Go / Gear VR Build 11.0 Release Notes

edited December 6 in Oculus Quest
Search
We’ve made the following updates and enhancements to in-VR search to help you find new content faster:
  • Improved discoverability to make it easier to find new content.
  • Enhanced navigation functionality to make it easier to scroll and use the search feature.
  • Added an autofill Search bar that populates when hovering over an autocomplete tag.
App Installs
Any pending or in-process app installs will now complete before your headset goes to sleep. This means that if you started a download and then took off your headset, your app should finish downloading before the headset goes into sleep mode.

Environments for Quest
We’ve added the new Environments feature to Quest. Environments allow you to change the world that surrounds you while in your Quest Home.
  • You’ll be able to see your environment when you first put on your headset, use the Oculus store, update your settings, or browse your library.
  • You can view and change your environment from your Settings panel. To do this point at your bottom toolbar and select Settings > See all > Virtual Environments. Then point and choose the environment that you want to apply.
  • Please note this feature will be rolled out gradually over the coming weeks to ensure optimal quality and stability.
  • Once the feature is fully rolled out, look out for additional environment options coming in future releases.
Miscellaneous
  • New High Score Shelf in VR (Beat Saber) - See high scores from friends in your VR Feed when playing Beat Saber. Please note that this feature is part of a test and, as result, is only available to a percentage of users at this time.
  • Achievements in VR - See achievements (new levels, trophies, etc. in games) from friends in your VR Feed. Please note that this feature is part of a test and, as result, is only available to a percentage of users at this time.
  • Personalization in VR - You can now favorite or hide apps/genres, which will either boost or remove them from your Explore Feed.
Oculus Link
  • Remote rendering is now available! Check out our blog post and support center articles for details on connecting Quest to your compatible PC. Please note that it may take up to 24 hours for the feature to appear within your headset. If you still do not see the feature after that time, please reboot your Quest headset and log out and back into your account on the Oculus PC software.

    Very nice! Will we have the ability to import our own environments?

    Something that would be great if the oculus go can be used at least as a DK2 with joystick, to be able to natively play games of oculus in the store or Steam, wirelessly. That would make everyone happy.

    What about Link and Passthrough+ ? I thought they were supposed to roll out in the 11 update, but are not mentioned in this post. Are they delayed or did you just not mention them? I have to fix a hardware limitation before I can use Link, but I would really like to have the Passthrough+.

    No link, no passthrough+, no comments from Oculus about why these are not included? Come on that is why everyone was looking forward to the 11 update!

    I have release 11 update on my Quest, Pc Oculus software updated today as well but no idea about link, I’m very confused. Should it show on PC as Quest alongside Rift and Rift S?

    I am sure that it is in the firmware already. But since all firmwares are rolled out in waves the start of Link will probably be in a week when it is completley rolled out. But just what I guess.

    Only way to know is to test yourself. Oculus release notes are more PR gimmick then anything else, and contain maybe 10% of actual technical changes made. They seem to think that it is a good idea for users to have to randomly test functionality to figure out what's changed since the last firmware. The alternative is that they don't even know themselves, which would explain a lot...

    Hi, I just updated to version 11 and I don't see anywhere about Settings> See all> Virtual Environments. I also have Oculus Go in which this menu is. Thank you.

    You may need to do a full shutdown and reboot to get the new features to show up. I know that's been the case for me for the past few updates.

    I cannot seem to get mine to update but I can see environments on V10 which is weird. I changed it from the dome but now I cannot find the setting to change back. I will be pissed if I have to factory reset to get the update.

    When did you switch the environment? A few days ago? Some people on Reddit somehow had the ability earlier than they were supposed to, but then it disappeared from their settings menu. The environment change remained though. My guess is wait for the update, then you'll be able to switch back and forth.

    Thank you. I just restarted, and then I turned it off and on again, but the menu still doesn't come out. It will not be necessary to restore it to factory state, right? In that case I would lose all the information I have saved.
    Thank you very much in advance.

    @EduLoc key bullet above. This feature is not yet available to everyone, so it expected that some users will not see it at this time.

    Just a heads up though, it's called Environment, not Virtual Environments.



    edit: that's weird...my screenshots are smaller now

    Strange I am not seeing this update. I left my Quest on overnight and the button to update doesn't show the update. Do you have to be part of a beta?

    Thank you very much for the clarification. I see that I really like this function that I have in my Oculus Go. I hope it appears soon  :)

    You just have to wait for it to roll out to your area or serial number, or however they split it up. It will come.

    since the latest update if I disable the guardian then use alvr it seems to reset the quest after a few mins, very annoying although I only disabled it before as it use to keep crashing to quest home whenever it was on. Just hurry up with link! although alvr runs everything including dirt absolutely fine now.
