Hand Tracking. No more controllers for Medium

With the debut of Hand Tracking on the Quest, is hand tracking going to be available for Medium soon?

    Medium isn't on the Quest and Oculus have said there's no plans for Rift-S hand tracking yet.

    With Medium no longer being owned by Oculus/Facebook, I can't imagine that integrating experimental Oculus-only hardware features are a priority for their small team anymore.  Even if that were the case, I don't think hand tracking would be a useful fit for Medium -- in pretty much every capacity it would end up being slower, less predictable, and less useful than using a controller because you don't have deliberate input registration of buttons and triggers being pushed.

    Yeah, I think medium needs the controller tracking accuracy, analogue triggers giving strength of application would also be a problem to replace. Maybe with haptic feedback, it would be good but that's some way off right now.
