Update 4/27/2020: Hey everyone - just wanted to give you a heads up that you should expect to see another software update, which will begin rolling out to a percentage of users today. This hotfix fixes a bug that sometimes caused sideloaded applications to disappear from users’ libraries. Thanks to everyone who reported the bug and for your patience while the team worked to address it!

Accessibility

  • We’ve added the option to swap the Oculus button functionality to the left Touch controller and the Menu button functionality to the right Touch controller. You can find this option by navigating to Settings > Device > Controllers.
  • You can now turn off or lower the intensity of Touch controller vibration. This can also be found in the Settings > Device > Controllers menu.
Guardian
  • You can now set up your roomscale Guardian boundaries without controllers by using hand tracking instead.
  • The Passthrough view can now be selected as your Home Environment. Navigate to Settings > Virtual Environment to check it out!
Social
  • When browsing the Facebook app on your phone, you may see an option to “Open in VR” for certain content. Clicking this button will launch that web content on your headset when you put it on.
  • Parties has received a variety of quality improvements. This includes updates to the party invite flow and clearer notifications upon joining a Party.
  • You can now send and receive clickable links through Chats. Clicked links will open in a web browser.
  • Opening a new chat in VR will automatically open the keyboard.
    • Please note that this change is an experiment that only a percentage of users will see.
  • User-created events now allow you to easily start a chat thread with all users who have been invited.
    • Please note that this feature is only available to a percentage of users at this time.
  • When unsubscribing from an event, you will now be prompted to confirm your decision.
  • A new friends panel has been added to the right side of the Explore panel.
    • Please note that this feature is only available to a percentage of users at this time.
  • The Scoreboard app will now allow you to recommend a game to a friend.
    • Please note that the Scoreboard app is still only available to a percentage of users at this time. This change will only be visible to those users and you will only be able to recommend a game to users who also have access to the Scoreboard app.
Fixes
  • A delay caused by enabling the Passthrough Shortcut in the new user experience has been reduced.
  • Fixed a bug that sometimes caused the headset to hang on the Oculus boot logo.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the app preview page to scroll when only scrolling the app’s ratings and review panel.
  • Fixed an issue that sometimes prevented Oculus Link from launching correctly after reconnecting Quest to your PC.
  • Fixed an issue that caused controllers to disappear when Hand Tracking was enabled while using Oculus Link.
  • General Link stability improvements.

    Will be interesting to see how many days it takes this one to come down the pike to my Quest this time.

    My in VR notifications seem to not work at all.  I've even reset to factory defaults and nada.  No low battery warnings, no friend reqs notifications, no app install success messages..   DND is off, and all notifications are on.  Any ideas?

    Has the system driver crash with passthrough (link) been fixed that prevents people like me from drawing their Guardians? This should be a critical fix, especially if we want to be able to use passthrough as our home environment.

    At the risk of sounding like a complete dummy, where did "Unapproved Sources" go in the latest update?

    Nvmd. I always miss the scroll bars.

    Any word on the audio bug? As in the bug that doesn't allow certain games like "lies Beneath" audio to be recorded or streamed. I was really hoping this update would have fixed that.

    The update option didn't show up in my quest.
    Is there any way to force update it to v16?

    I hope this is allowed, but here is how to manually update.
  • TomCgcmfcTomCgcmfc Posts: 2,158 Valuable Player
    I think it would be safer to wait for v16 to roll out to your area.  Usually only takes 4-7 days.  Just check your settings/about and if it is available the update button will appear.

    Following up I just wanted to report that I manually updated to 16 with no issues. Just follow the guide. If you are computer illiterate though, better wait. ;)

    I got 16 but wow it is super glitchy. Sometimes I am super tall and sometimes sideways sometimes part of the last app follows. Anyone else.? I think there will need to be a patch.

    I was already having problems with oculus link such as stuttering and sometimes completely blacking out to 1 screen
    now within the first 5 seconds of trying it to see if the bug was fixed made it worse? if there is a way to downgrade to v14 or otherways can someone help me?

    There is also a glitch in the past few updates that disconnects the battery while using the Quest. When it happens the screen slightly jitters, and after that when switching to the dashboard view, it shows the battery is no longer connected. If you try to turn the battery back on after the glich it will stay on for three seconds, then disconnect again. This happens until you reboot. I was hoping update 16 would've fixed this, but it's still happening. It was working up to two updates ago and the Quest would stay cool and battery at 100% for very long sessions. Please fix this in the next update if possible. Thank you!

    Can anyone else who was having the stuttering issue confirm whether this is still a problem?  I still have a ticket open with them for it and they're at the point where they want to replace my headset; I honestly think the new one's going to have the same problem as it reeks of a software issue.
