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.

Messenger

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.

Is anyone actually getting any of these new features yet? My Quest has already updated to v43 and no sign of the ability to link Move fitness to my iPhone. Has anyone got the Display contrast feature yet?

@lensmandave   No mate I haven’t seen the contrast option yet.  I’m still on non-beta v42 (Q2 and PC).  I still haven’t even seen the app sorting option that was supposed to be included with v41, lol!  Cheers

Also got v43(.0.0.167.120.387708xxx) on my Q2, Desktop is v42.

(Air-)Link works as always... perfect 😉

 

Hopefully the battery drain will be fixed with it... present since v40 I think.

(HMD lies around, next time I try to use, it's empty :()

@Buetigame  Is that the v43 Public Test Beta on your Q2?  If so, maybe you should be posting this on the PTC v43 Thread mate.  Also, have your tried the ptc v43 on the Oculus Desktop pc app?

Not sure what battery drain issue you are talking about.  Is this with the Elite strap with battery draining if you leave it connected overnight or when you do not fully shutdown and leave it in sleep mode, or something else?

No PTC... nor at HMD or desktop - so this is the right thread, right?

And your linked thread maybe is the reason why the desktop wasn't updated 😉

 

And battery drain, leaving it in sleep mode, of course.

Why should it drain battery, when its shut down?
