New Oculus Quest update adds multitasking and wireless streaming for the original headset – .


Facebook is rolling out its v30 update to the Oculus Quest and Quest 2 VR headsets. As announced earlier this week by Mark Zuckerberg, v30 includes a new multitasking interface for Infinite Office that lets you put multiple apps side by side, including browser, Oculus TV, Oculus Move, Store, and more.

Like many new features in Oculus Quest, it’s found in the Experimental section of the settings menu as a first step. Once multitasking is enabled, apps can be moved up from the menu bar or app library and put into place.

The v30 update also enables Air Link for the original Quest headset. Air Link arrived at Quest 2 in April and lets you stream VR games from your PC to your headset wirelessly, unlike Oculus Link which does the same via a USB-C cable. Previously, Quest owners could stream PC games wirelessly with the third-party Virtual Desktop app.

Other new features include the addition of an accessibility tab to the settings menu which, among other things, allows for height adjustment, so games can be experienced from a standing perspective while seated. . Oculus has also added the ability to switch the headset’s built-in microphone between system-wide group chat and the app you’re using.

As always, the update might not hit your headset immediately due to the phased deployment process, but Facebook says it’s coming.
