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.

Where is app filter of v41? Nobody got it... 😅

Hi @tanubon, I've checked in with the team on app filtering and they've confirmed that feature hasn't fully rolled out to everyone yet. Some features don't get fully turned on until they've been through the ringer of vetting and testing (even after the release they were "included" in).

Level 4

My Quest 2 just updated to v44, massive issue with height when guardian is disabled, that being it's fixed waaaay to high and you can reset it, seems fixed in place unless you enable guardian and set a boundary. This wouldn't be such a big issue but I don't even use the guardian as I sit in a fixed rig and use the Quest for Sim racing. Any suggestions? I tried toggling the height setting and whilst it makes a difference it still doesn't correct the height being fixed, just lowers it.

Level 2

My quest 2 is on v44 and there are no recording settings 

You need to enable advanced camera setting in experimental.

Level 2


Updated to latest fw (, I still have no "Advanced camera settings" option in experimental. How to resolve that?

Level 3

Like some of the ppl here, got upgraded to v44, but no toggle for recording options in experimental. Even after multiple reboots and "experimental setting" resets.

Had the feature been pulled?

No "Advanced Camera Settings" in "Experimental settings", even after factory reseted. Sad.
