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.

Beowulf22 you write your Laptop and your Quest2 are in the same 5GHz network.
This is a wrong setup. The PC ( Laptpop ) must be connected with a network cable to the router !

This seems to be the case with me also at least. Other features register except for Airlink (on the Quest 2 Experimental menu). I can only assume they are rolling it out, though don't quote that Release Update, please--it's as mysterious as every other convoluted update or rollout Oculus handles. Do they not make enough at FB to do things right? It's just baffling...: (

 

The latest VD update now runs so well for me I've only a bettor's interest in seeing how well Air Link works. One day I'm sure they'll catch up, but I doubt it will be on this first pass @ wireless. Again, baffling how FB can't manage better.

Just seems like shockingly bad company policy, I don't care how hard the update process is. If you don't have it ready, don't tell me it's coming...sort of...later...? Great! : (

did you try doing a factory reset through the phone app? that fixed it for me. it showed up on the quest. not even the actual v28 update made it show nor did doing a factory reset through the headset, had to do it via phone app.

Link is still broken in some games, with display glitches/white horizontal stripe showing up. It's obvious at this point that Oculus doesn't give a **bleep** about fixing these issues.

After some more testing I'm having these issues in all games. On top of that, horrid performance with low fps and huge latency spikes as well as crackling audio. The issues have gone from really annoying to a completely useless headset.

Still no fix for ASMedia usb controllers.

My ASMedia win10 driver dated 16/11/2020 is working fine (power savings disabled of course) with my official link cable.  This is the usb3.1 gen2 type-c port (only have one of these) on my asus maximus hero xi motherboard.  I also have a separate startech 2x usb3.1 gen2 type-c ports (sata powered) that also seems to work fine but I get better usb test speeds and a little better performance with my MB port (2.5Gbps vs 2.0Gbps.  Go figure?
