These features and enhancements will become available starting the week of July 11th, 2022.

Move 2.0

We’ve been listening to your suggestions to improve Move in order to make it easier to track your VR fitness progress. Last month, we began to roll out tracking and viewing your VR fitness stats on your phone. iOS users also had the option to sync with Apple Health. Today, we’re sharing a couple new improvements to Oculus Move:

  • Earn Move Achievements for hitting your fitness goals. In the Move app, find the dedicated tab to track your fitness milestones, like 5000 calories burned or 100 daily goals completed, no matter what game or app you’re moving in.
  • Visualize your fitness progress compared to the previous week with Move Trends.
    • And for those interested in more fitness stats, check out your peak and average intensity (calories burned per minute).
  • If you haven’t used Move yet, learn more about Move and how it can help you track your VR fitness goals.


While in VR, you can now see how many unread Messenger chats you have directly from the app icon.

Air Link

Air Link is moving out of the experimental settings panel and will now be available under system settings. We’ve also made the following improvements:

  • We’ve added a Connection benchmarking tool to help understand and improve the quality of your wireless connection.
  • We’ve improved the UI to simplify the number of steps required to set up Link and Air Link.
  • Previously, we announced the beta release of Air Link Windows 11 compatibility. With this release, Air Link is now fully compatible with Windows 11.

Parental Supervision

We’ve added the ability for parents to enable and disable social features for any teens that they supervise. Turning on social feature supervision will prevent teens from:

  • Creating and joining parties.
  • Visiting or watching VR content together in anyone's Meta Horizon Home.
  • Sending/receiving chat messages on Oculus Chat and Messenger in VR.
  • Posting on Facebook from the VR share option.

We’re also adding a new notification for when a teen ages out of a content rating.

Display Contrast

We’ve introduced a contrast slider to help improve overall visibility while in VR. This includes text, controls, backgrounds etc.

  • You can adjust your display contrast from your Meta Quest headset by selecting Apps > Settings > Accessibility and then moving the slider to your desired contrast level.
Help others find great discussions and answers by adding kudos and marking solutions to your questions.

Level 6

Why for wired-Link now I need Wi-Fi connection ? What a hell added to "Quest Link" in System menu ?

I have the same issue. It should be possible to use wired Quest Link without a Wifi connection.

Agreed. We have a lot of events, where we would like to show our software with Oculus, but if we need wifi for it, that is usually a big blocker, sometimes even a no-go

@RodioR  I guess you could try using your smartphone's wifi hotspot to get it going.  After you're connected you should then be able to go off line if you are just using stored games that do not require wifi access.

Level 7

Some people reporting Link back to experimental from system like me. What is happening? 

Level 2

At home since 42.0, a router is no longer necessary for the Airlink connection in Wifi 5-6.


You confirm ?

Level 3

Since update I am not able to connect the Quest 2 to the PC using Wired Link. In the Occulus aplication in my PC all looks fine and I can even see the files from the explorer in windows, but in the quick settings menu in the headset, the option to connect with Link won't appear.


This is a major bug for our company since we used it to connect the headset to Unity and test our apps. Any solution?

it is wrong! In 42 Home I need now wi-fi too! And it works even HMD connected to smartphone without internet !!!)))

Level 6

Newly my Quest2 updated to 42.130 and wi-fi issue fixed now!!! 

Wired Link now works without Wi-Fi connection !

thanks for info! Now we just need to wait to get the update (not everyone gets it at the same time)
