    Yes please allow developers access to this feature as soon as possible. My company needs to find out if this is a viable replacement for our Leap Motion setup. We are running out of standard Rifts and need to see if we are going to replace them with the Quest or Rift S. Please give us a way to start implementing hand tracking ASAP!!!

    I heard it will be available to devs only once it's publicly released as an experimental feature.

    But on the off chance that this thread has any influence -
    We have 2 apps in development that are a natural fit for hand tracking. Would be great to get the API ahead of time..

    I asked this in the Start forum a while back but it's pretty quiet over there. It would be very helpful, as has been said, to get at least an idea of the API so we can start testing with Leap Motion (for example) and have a consistent bridging API. Hopefully this thread justifies a response by Oculus.

    Just to add another voice to the choir, we too would make use of advance access to the hand tracking API. Opens up a lot of possibilities.

    What is available now at the system menus will work just fine as input for all our interactions. <3 Can't wait to get our hands on the SDK.

    What is the best way to find out when hand tracking sdk is available?
  • MathJeanMathJean Posts: 1
    My guess is they will post in this forum when they'll puss the SDK, they said this week. This was supposed to be next year, so I'm happy we get it early!

    Can't wait to get my hands on the new SDK this week

    Is there any way to activate hand tracking in the Quest while using it in the Link setup? I really need to be able to run on a PC but also include hand tracking.
