Meta Quest build v44 release notes

These features and enhancements will become available starting the week of September 15, 2022.

Advanced Creator Settings

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:

  • Image Stabilization: Choose how much to reduce the appearance of headset movement in your videos.
    • Increasing image stabilization decreases the field of view.
  • Aspect Ratio: Choose your default format and resolution for photos and videos.
    • We heard your requests, and are happy to add that 1920x1080 or "Landscape" is now possible.
  • Frame Rate: Choose your default frame rate for videos.
    • Higher frame rates can negatively impact app performance.
  • Video Compression Quality: Choose a default bit rate for videos.
    • Higher bit rates improve video quality but also increase file size.

Parental Supervision

We continue to add features to our Parental Supervision tools for VR. Two of the newest additions include:

  • Block Developer Mode: Parents can now block teens from using their headset in developer mode through Parental Supervision tools.
    • Blocking developer mode will prevent teens from installing apps on their Meta Quest that may not be available on the Meta Quest App store using a connected device or computer.
  • Note, this will be rolling out gradually.

Unlock Pattern for Apps

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.

  • You can find this feature by selecting Settings > Security Settings > App Lock.

Hi @Ryanality When will be the next stable release for Oculus Quest 2 as current update does not support navigation from normal android activity(2D) to VR Screen (3D) which was working with previous OS version.

Level 4

Hi, this issue needs to be looked into. I have only seen it since V44 but others seemed too before, more than one is seeing it and I have confirmed that 120hz utilising Virtual Desktop the issue isn't present so it's definitely Oculus software induced.

Where are the advanced features???? Is no one going to address this? 

Level 3

I've noticed that when I try to use 2D apps with passthrough enabled the entire passthrough view becomes extremely choppy after a few minutes. It doesn't seem to matter what app I use or which combination of apps - and I did not get any of the new experimental features, the height was all messed up and 2D apps were crashing on both headsets as soon as they started up with update v44 installed. Why is no one at Meta responding to these issues? I can see that I am far from the only one experiencing these bugs. Was this some kind of alpha preview that accidentally got released into the wild? Y'all need to do a v45 fix like yesterday. Maybe you should just let the Oculus guys go back to running Oculus? This is ridiculous - especially after increasing the price by $100

This isn't all update, it's a pile of bugs thrown in our faces

Does the v44 version not support OpenXR?

@SuperHwan  I’m using OpenXR toolkit with msfs 2020 with my Q2/rtx3090 and it works fine with Air Link.

Apk files containing OpenXR won't run on Oculus Quest2 after v44 version update. It runs fine on devices that have not updated v44.

I'm not in the PTC.

Level 15

Seems to be a forum problem right now.  I have posted a reply to the previous post and it keeps disappearing.

Another bug found. When I power on or restart my quest 1 and leave it sitting it doesn't go to sleep. Can hear fan spinning and white power light still on. When put headset on screen is blank.


Once I press power button on/off it goes to sleep fine then.


Just tested it works fine if I'm wearing headset while powering on or restarting.


Just happens when power on without headset on.
