These features and enhancements will become available starting the week of September 15, 2022.
We want to empower creators to capture and deliver high quality experiences to help connect and grow engagement from their audiences. As such, we’ve added Advanced Camera Settings that can be enabled from your Experimental Settings panel in VR. Once enabled, you’ll have access to these additional camera settings:
We continue to add features to our Parental Supervision tools for VR. Two of the newest additions include:
You can now lock multiple apps with a single PIN entry. With this update, you can also filter and lock apps based on rating categories.
I got v44 on my Q2 and PC app today. All seems to work ok. I see the system/camera settings if I enable camera options in Experimental. Not something I use or care about though. I still do not see any app organisation options yet. I see that the Oculus logo has now been removed from the power/reset panel.
Only small bug I've seen so far is that when I startup my Q2 I initially see my home environment with the dashboard menu up high. It then flashes to the usual confirm guardian panel. Seems to work fine after that, just a bit annoying. I have reported this to Meta.
Edit; now it seems to show red points of objects around my stationary boundary and asks me to move these out of the way, go to room setup, or continue. Pressing continue seems to advance to my Q2 home ok. Not sure if there is a way to turn this off. I've never turned on space sense or ever used room scale guardian.
Otherwise, I don't really see any significant differences in performance compared to v43 (standalone and with Air Link). I'm always grateful when updates don't brick my Q2, lol! Thanks Meta.
C'mon guys seriously literally after every update I have to factory reset my headset. I was using the headset yesterday and everything was running ok, I updated to v44 and immediately after that the guardian system got ruined. The dashboard is very high when guardian is off and I always had it turned off. Clearing the guardian doesn't help. It's literally unusable. I have to climb a ledder to be at the same level with the dashboard. If I turn the guardian on the dashboard height is ok but I'm way too close to the floor even though I set the floor distance correctly. Clearing and redoing the guardian doesn't fix it. Neither restarting. So I did a factory reset again because factory resetting became my hobby, which of course didn't fixed it. If only we'd have an option to never update the headset again.... The headset is amazing but those updates...man...
