These features and enhancements will become available starting the week of April 19th, 2021.

Bring Your Desk into VR

  • We’ve added the ability to place a virtual desk on your real desk to use while you’re in VR. You can see and use this Desk in the Oculus Home environment.
  • We recommend staying seated while using the Desk.
  • To opt in to this experimental feature, open your universal menu, select Settings, then select Experimental Features. Select Bring Your Desk Into VR to enable your virtual desk.

Pair Your Physical Keyboard with your Quest 2

  • We’ve added the ability to pair a Logitech K830 keyboard to your Oculus Quest 2. When you pair your keyboard to your Quest 2, you’ll see a 3D representation of your hands and keyboard within VR for easy text entry and system navigation while in your Home environment.
  • To begin using your K830 keyboard with Quest 2, open your universal menu, select Settings, then select Experimental Features. Select Pair next to Bluetooth Pairing.

Oculus Air Link

  • Oculus Air Link allows you to discover and pair your Oculus Quest 2 headset to your Oculus-ready PC over a secure Wi-Fi network.
  • You can opt in to this experimental feature from the Experimental Features section of Settings. Follow the instructions on our support site to set up Oculus Air Link.
  • Note: Air Link is part of v28 but it requires that both your headset and PC be running v28 software. That means we’ll be unlocking Air Link once both Quest and PC v28 releases are rolled out, which will happen soon - but you won’t see Air Link just yet, so stay tuned.

120Hz Support

  • 120Hz support is now available on Oculus Quest 2 in an experimental setting. Developers can now ship apps that run at 120Hz, allowing you to experience a higher refresh rate for any app that supports 120Hz when you enable this in Settings.
  • To opt in to this experimental feature, open your universal menu, select Settings, select Experimental Features, then select 120Hz.
  • Keep in mind, it’s up to the developer to provide support for 120Hz. While there aren’t any apps that support 120 Hz just yet, people who turn on this setting will experience 120 Hz performance in apps that choose to support it in the future.
  • This feature may affect battery usage, headset temperature and the visual quality of some system features.

Bug Fixes

  • Tracking Improvements
    • Fixed issue where in certain environments, some customers experienced tracking loss.

 

Please note, the Experimental Features section includes features that are still being developed, so you may encounter anything from minor issues to app crashes.

@CDMDalek  Ya, if I were you I would try a Factory Reset.  Like Windows 10, a good refresh is often very useful once in a while, esp. if you have a lot of problems.  Btw, I still luv my +1yo Q1 too!  Good luck and cheers

Thaaaaanks bro, it was the logout and login back who fixed it, the rest didn"t work for me.

Well, I did the factory reset as support suggested... no change, unfortunately. I am really hoping it's a software fix. Or that they can send a new lens or something. I can still play games, but I baby my Quest and want it to be perfect! I really believe in the power of VR and want to use it in different ways in the future. I just don't want a refurbished one or anything... I like mine!

@CDMDalek   Too bad a factory reset did not fix this.  I don't know but it sound like one of your Q1 screens may be faulty.  Work with Oculus support and hopefully they will offer you a replacement.  They do not do repairs or sell spare headset parts so you'll have to accept a refurbished one. 

 

Don't be put off by this because their refurbished units are just like new imho.  I had a Rift replaced a couple of years ago and it was def good as new (new facepad and not a scratch on it).  It seems to me that very few people complain about Oculus refurbished replacements.  For the most part I think these refurbished units may be extra spares that they ordered beforehand for warranty replacements.  Just note that the warranty on replacement headsets is 3 months, or to the end of your current warranty (whichever takes you out the longest). 

 

Up to you but if they offer you a refurbished replacement I would take it.  Good luck mate and cheers.

Thanks for the vote of confidence. I am waiting to hear back from them. I hoped it was a software issue. I'd love for them to offer a replacement even though I've had it since day 1. But I am a huge believer in VR and I definitely want it to work perfectly! Thanks for the info.
