These features and enhancements will become available starting the week of 8/23/2021.

Oculus Move

  • We’ve updated the Daily Move goals to Weekly Goals to better fit into your schedule. When you open Oculus Move, we’ll prompt you to select a new weekly goal based on your calories and minutes combined.
  • Your Move Calendar view will now show your progress against your weekly goals.
  • We’ve adjusted the Light, Moderate, and High calorie and Move Minute targets.
  • When you’re done working out, you now have the option to share your workout stats directly from Oculus Move to your Facebook timeline, Groups, and Messenger.
  • If you haven’t used Oculus Move yet, you can find it in the (apps icon) section of your menu bar. You can also learn more about Oculus Move on the apps page of our support site.
    • Please note that all Oculus Move features are being rolled out progressively over time and may not initially be available for all users.

Messenger

  • You won’t have to choose between viewing your Oculus friends or your Facebook friends as they’ll all show up in a single list under the People tab in Messenger.
    • However, your Facebook and Oculus friend will still be separate, which means that Oculus friends can’t see your Facebook profile or activity unless you separately add them as friends on Facebook.
    • Please note that this Messenger feature is being rolled out progressively over time and may not initially be available for all users.
  • We’ve added a new chat settings panel that allows you to view info about the chat thread and take additional actions in group threads. These actions include the ability to leave the chat, view the members in the chat, and rename the chat thread.

App Gifting

  • You can now send gifts to your friends and family directly from your headset, without leaving VR. Simply find the app you want to gift in the app store, select the (three dot icon) menu, then choose Buy for a friend.

Media Files Sync

Experimental Multitasking

  • We’ve added new UI animations to Multitasking to make certain actions appear smoother.
    • Please note this will only be available for users who turn on Multitasking in the Experimental Features section of Settings.

Permissions

  • We’ve improved and simplified the process for editing and updating permissions preferences by adding on/off toggles directly to the permissions tablet.

Notifications

  • We’ve improved the utility of many in-VR notifications by adding action buttons that allow you to take action directly from the notification itself.

You can always find our release notes up to date on our support page here as well.

@AlexiTQ  As I suggested to you +1.5 months ago in your numerous v30 rant posts;

 

"Since you have a very well spec'd PC and do not have any problems with Air Link or Virtual Desktop it seems to me that your problem stems from your motherboard's usb ports.  If you google your MB; Gigabyte Aorus G7 motherboard ; you will a number of issues relating to this.  It seems that many have found the usb ports do not supply enough power to certain devices so that they cut off after a few minutes gameplay.  It looks like the solution for some is to contact Aorus support and RMA the MB back to them.  Updating the bios seemed help some.  Others have used a powered usb hub or separate pcie usb sata powered card.  The Q2 w/Link cable does require good power delivery because it is transferring a lot of data while supplying a charge to the battery headset."

 

@AlexiTQ  you never responded to this and I think that your problem (maybe also shared by others) could be related to this and/or Link graphics settings (including this white stripe thing, which many have already solved).  Yet you seem to think that because Oculus cannot supply you personally with a plug and play solution for your Link cable issue, even though Air Link and VD work fine, they are criminals.

USB has been working flawlessly and there's no issue with the power delivery. I can even increase the voltage on USB ports to ensure stable power delivery when many devices are connected to the motherboard. Issues with USB on Gigabyte's (and others) motherboards are mainly related to Ryzen chipsets. 

 

And no, many people have not already solved this issue. It's remains unresolved. Read the thread and get a clue.

 

I've bought the headset to be used with the Link cable and I expect it to work as advertised. This is Oculus responsibility to fix. That's what adults do by the way - they take responsibility. What I don't expect is for support to ignore customers when they're out of ideas on how to fix and issue, nor when a customer - in his full right - demands a refund on a faulty product. That's not how honest companies deal with customers - that's how scumbags act.

Thanks for jumping in @nalex66, I couldn't agree more. I edited both replies to delete the main attack in each the thread reads a bit more friendly. 

 

@AlexiTQ, I also reached out to the support team to look into what happened with your case and they may be reaching back out there. This definitely is an odd issue, and from that thread, it looks like several solutions seemed to work for different people, indicating that a stripe like that is a potential symptom of multiple issues and not a specific bug. I completely understand how frustrating it would be nonetheless. It's a shame that none of those suggestions, including @TomCgcmfc's one above, worked for you, but I'll do what I can on my end to make sure the team gets it in front of them to investigate.

So far v32 has been the best update since March for me for both my Quest 1 and 2.  For months I was restricted as to how much internal SS I could apply. Anything higher than 1536 was resulting in a garbled picture through several updates. Finally fixed in v32 for me and link is performing much better.

 

 Not sure if it was V32 but I've also noticed that when I click the Oculus button , I can now minimize both the explore window and the Oculus menu.  I appreciate that option.

I hadn’t noticed that, but you’re right. It makes a lot more sense to close both windows when you minimize the menu, and now I can sit and enjoy the view from my space station. Nice!

I noticed that there is a new settings menu called "system keyboard", although it shows blank when clicking. Is this supposed to be the case?

Also are there any news on non-US physical keyboard layouts? It's weird how the touch-input keyboard supports swedish yet physical swedish keyboard can't even type in their own layout.

Got an update today: 32.0.0.58.x to 32.0.0.77.x

No words on changes... of course.

@Buetigame  Ya, I got that small update over a week ago and did not notice any differences.  Maybe the experimental multitasking option which  does not interest me right now:
