Rift S and Rift Build 14.0 Release Notes

All of these features and enhancements will become available throughout the week of February 24, 2020.

Oculus Link


  • The Quest microphone has been re-enabled for use with Link.
  • A dedicated Oculus Link button has been added to the Oculus Quest menu bar to make jumping into Link quicker and easier. Similarly, a button was added to the Dash belt that allows you to quickly exit Link when using it.
  • Link audio and microphone volume controls have been added to Dash and the Oculus desktop app.
  • Moving forward, Oculus Link no longer requires that the Quest software and the PC software have matching version numbers. However, the two software versions must be within one version of the other. For example, Link will function when the Quest is on software version 14 and the PC is software version 15 or the PC software is version 14 and the Quest software is version 13. It will not work if Quest is on version 13 and PC is on version 15 or vice versa.

Miscellaneous

  • Fixed a bug that prevented Oculus Link from working when the resolution had been adjusted with the Oculus Debug Tool.
  • Fixed a bug that sometimes prevented Oculus Link from launching when the Link cable was disconnected and reconnected after ending a previous Link session.
  • Additional bug fixes and stability improvements

Great to see the mic has finally been enabled for Quest with Link. Also volume controls a nice addition.

Great news about the Link mic and the relaxed version-matching requirement!

Quick clarification regarding Link items: some of the new functionality listed here requires your Quest to be on v14 software. That hasn't started rolling out yet, so hang tight for that!

Does this include Link microphone, as in v14 will be needed on the Quest for mic?

will my USB-3 Connection work again ? because since the latest update ( PC ) oculus link doesn't work because it's only detecting my connection as USB-2.
Did reinstall,repair updates etc. to fix this but no success

Still waiting for hand tracking on the Rift S. Seems as though the S is being forgotten, hopefully you guys are working on something big for us and that's the reason behind the lack of new features for us PCVR users. I can only hope.
