The Public Test Channel (PTC) for Quest and Quest 2 v40 is starting to roll out today. Let's use this thread for collecting feedback on it. Share your impressions and let us know if you see any issues. Please make sure to also send in bug reports along with posting here if you notice anything wrong.
When sharing feedback, try to include as much detail as possible to help the team investigate.
The point is to give them more info before the patch goes out to more people. Changes are that without the PTC, even more problems would make it to the public release.
Updates will never be perfect, but they need to top pushing new features and focus on fixing existing problems for a few months.
"How do you guys think that this is acceptable?"
It is acceptable the same way any bug is acceptable. They did not break it on purpose, and they will fix it as fast as they can. Without knowing what changed that broke it, it is litearally impossible for you to know how hard it is to fix.
I agree with you that usually bugs are a minor inconvenience to the user, however, this is not a bug in the traditional sense as it is false advertising (view tech specs on the oculus quest 2 store page). A locked 72 Hz makes me nauseated to the point of not being able to use the device. I just bought the Quest 2 with the purpose of playing at 90 Hz+. I don't think I can ever recall encountering a "bug" that REMOVES the critical features.
When I'm connected to my computer with the cable, I have an "allow data access" window that now pops up every time I get a notification from my phone or when I take off and put on my headset. And it's impossible to click on it. You have to wait for it to go away at the same time as the notification. I did authorize it at least once at the very beginning
