Quest 2 / Quest Build 26.0 Release Notes

Oculus Community Manager
Oculus Community Manager

These features and enhancements will become available starting the week of February 18th, 2021.

Bring Your Couch into VR

  • We’ve added the ability to place a virtual couch on your real couch to use while you’re in-VR. Now, after an energetic game of Beat Saber, you can head over to your real couch, see it in your virtual space, and easily take a seat and catch your breath while you watch Netflix in-VR.
  • Virtual couch boundaries are automatically saved and detected so you don’t have to re-add them each time you put on your headset.
    • We recommend staying seated while using the couch.
  • You can opt-in to this experimental feature by selecting Settings > Experimental Features
      • Please note, the experiments section includes features that are still being developed, and so you may encounter anything from minor issues to app crashes.

Hand Tracking

  • We’ve made improvements to the point and pinch gesture to make it easier to highlight and select things while using hand tracking in-VR.

Level 2

Any signs when the microphone is going to fix ie: when I record and talk to the teammate on the recording you cant hear my voice or when I go live you can hear only them mate but not your own voice ????

Level 7

That was a fast follow up to the last patch.  I like the idea of the virtual couch.
