These features and enhancements will become available starting the week of March 5, 2024 and will be pushed to Meta Quest 3, Meta Quest Pro, and Meta Quest 2 headsets. Please note that you can find the most up to date release notes on our release notes article and you can check out our v63 blog as well for more details.

Quest Cash

We’re expanding our payment method offerings with Quest Cash, Meta Quest Store credit that you can use to buy or gift Store content. 


Lying down (Quest 2 and Quest Pro only)

We’ve added a new feature that allows you to use your Quest 2 or Quest Pro headset while lying down. Kick back, relax and recline for casual experiences including media playback and stationary immersive gaming. You can enable this feature by going to Experimental in Settings and selecting the toggle next to Use Apps While Lying Down.  


Once enabled, you can use this feature by laying down and then pressing and holding the Meta or Oculus Menu button to reset your view.

Why are there no known bugs and fixed issues? I would love it if Meta had more transparency.

Where's the debris error fix? No one cares about Quest Cash and other such useless bull**bleep**.

Just money milking **bleep**. I am NEVER buying anything from the store. PCVR only!!

And where are the patch notes for v63?

No patch notes! Why are you ignoring bugs like the debris error?!! Instead releasing features that are trivial?!?! 

Quest Cash? Laying Down? Seriously?!?

Fix the debris error ffs!!!

What an incompetent company.

I would like a response from an actual person not from an automated bot ffs.

Et des fonctions pour gérer les données privées ? Comme la suppression des éléments synchronisés dans la bibliothèque ou la suppression d'applications/démo non achetées??

Vous ne tenez vraisemblablement pas  compte des demandes sur le forum, sinon les priorités seraient toutes autres.

Le planning sera revu quand la CNIL vous tombera dessus,..

@fabien.leymarie 

Agreed. Bug fixes should be first priority.

So laying mode for quest 2 and pro only? Meta cash cool but can you gift cash if you dont have the quest app. Because if not then kinda strange and pretty much the same. Security wise it makes sense that parents are required to have an app on their phone controlling the childs app and hmd and is a requirementuntill they are of 13 or 14, even though the headset shouldnt be used used by anyone under 13 they still are so might aswell impliment a child account that still has restrictions like 2 hour maximum playtime ect. Are the bugs on v62 fixed? And can we please get a button on our wrists to disable the pinching and stuff so we still get vr arms and hands in vr mode but so it doesn't grab untill we enable the reach cursor thing. Eating some snacks and clicking on the video with hand tracking even at a distance is annoying af inface can we just put the meta and menu buttons on the inner or outer wrist

Do not update v63 if you are using airlink for pcvr,the stability is getting worse than v62.

Like the other poster said above - where is the fix for the liquid/debris issue that is bricking our Quest 3?  I can't even use the charging port at all anymore!  I've had this thing for less than 3 weeks and have been very meticulous about keeping it away from any food/drink.  The latest update turned our headset into a paperweight!  Throw us a bone here!  There is an article with over 500 replies of people waiting for this nonsense to be sorted for their $500 headset!

@GetMess "Do not update v63 if you are using airlink for pcvr,the stability is getting worse than v62."

I've read in other threads that v63 will get pushed out on the 14th of March even if you've turned off updates and disabled the Oculus updater service. Is this true?

Just like v62? Because it feels like a beta. I don't see v63 being any better. 

Is the debris error fixed? And there aren't any other issues that will cause us to not be able to use it?

I really want the Lying Down mode for Quest 3. The Quest 3 is a billion times better than the Quest 2. And it's three years newer. But instead of giving Lying Down mode to Quest 3 users, you are excluding us and only giving it to Quest 2 and Quest Pro users? Come on! I really thought that the Quest 3 would have Lying Down mode included, but it's been five months now and there is still no talk about it coming to the Quest 3. So what? I have to wait another 3 years for it to come out on a Quest 4? Why would you make a long article about Quest Cash and Lying Down mode for Quest 2, and not take a few seconds to write another sentence or two on why Lying Down mode won't be available for the Quest 3? Did it ever occur to you that millions of people might want to know why? There really should be a Lying Down mode for Quest 3 in the 63.0 version. At the very least the 64.0 version, but don't keep us in the dark. Tell us why it's not coming to the Quest 3 yet, and give us an ETA on when it will come (if it ever comes).

If the Lying Down mode not coming to Quest 3 has something to do with Quest 3's mixed reality, that doesn't make much sense. Quest 2 also has mixed reality, although the passthrough is black and white and a lower resolution. But anyway, the dozens of games I want to play lying down don't even have any mixed reality, passthrough, or AR. So I don't get why you don't just let Quest 3 users have this awesome feature. Quest 2 is like the Pinto of headsets, and the Quest 3 is like a BMW. Why you would give this awesome feature to Pinto users instead of BMW users just doesn't make any sense to me.

@gaveitatry the debris error remains. Which makes the device difficult to use. Who cares about a new feature when the headset doesn't work properly?!?

I don't understand why the quest 3 doesn't have the laying down feature, given its the most recent device..

@Massacher- You should reevaluate yourself and make adjustments to your mentality and attitude. I never even knew what a debris error was. But I saw many complaints about it in the last few days. I looked it up and found a Reddit thread on it. I only glanced at the details, but it does seem serious. Something about headsets being bricked and unusable because the headset will say that the charger has water or debris in it. I definitely think that should get top priority and that they should address it as quickly as possible. If I was one of the people experiencing the debris error, I would want it to be fixed as soon as possible too because it would affect me a lot. Why would I want a $533 headset to not work and not be able to be used?

But this v63 Release Notes is about Lying Down mode. I am on topic by sharing my thoughts, feelings, and feedback concerning that Lying Down mode. It might not be important to you, but it's not right of you to go around telling people that features that exist, features that people use, features that people want or need... are worthless and not worth existing or being talked about because you are narrow minded and you only care about yourself and whatever things that affect you. But of course, by me responding and sharing this bit of common sense with you, I've not done you or me the slightest bit of good because you won't appreciate what I feel is pure wisdom and you will just continue being ugly about it and will even get worse. Why are you picking fights with other people and saying things like "who cares?" I have every right to talk about the Lying Down mode on a post strictly about the Lying Down mode. It's the only opportunity I will ever get to talk about it since it wouldn't be right of me to talk about it on some unrelated topic thread. Don't get other people roped in on your "I am the most important person here and if you don't agree with that than you are public enemy number one" logic. Just mind your own business and talk to the Meta Support directly instead of trying to pick fights with other people and telling other people that they shouldn't or can't discuss whatever they are discussing.

@TomCgcmfc Not for now...
Got the 2nd update for v62 two days ago (after 2 weeks holiday).

With v62 I've got the firmware update one week later, after beeing announced.
(which was pretty fast... sometimes it lasts up to a month with Q2)

If I should guess: next tuesday/wednesday 😉

@gaveitatry Well what does having features matter when the debris error keeps popping up? Making the device UNUSABLE for anything.

Do you hear yourself? Saying I'm selfish. You are doing the exact same thing. You want lying down mode. Guess what it won't matter because of the debris error. I want to play PCVR but it doesn't matter because of the debris error. We all want to be able to use the $799.99 device that we paid for. But we can't because of Meta's incompetence. They keep adding features and changing data collection and other bull**bleep** but they won't fix the debris error. They are stupid. What is the point of all that when everyone's device is bricked?

Its like someone asking how are you and you tell them that you like waffles. Completely unrelated and irrelevant.

It's come to my attention that this thread has gotten a bit off topic. Let's please keep our comments respectful and on topic to the thread, as we want those who are looking for information on v63 to be able to easily find the information they're looking for. If you think that another user's posts do not belong in a thread, please utilize the report feature so a moderator can take a look. If you're experiencing the USB Debris/Water warning on your headset, please look for updates regarding the resolution of that issue in the (Not Resolved) Known Issue - V62/63 USB-C Debris/Water Warning  thread. Please keep in mind our rules as well: Forum Rules. Thank you!

Buetigame
Expert Protege
I didn't even know what this "USB-C debris/water warning" was all about.
 
I use Q2/Q3 with the original link cable (power only when needed during AirLinking and standalone use) or a standard USB-B/C cable in combination with the Anker power bank. So this problem only occurs for some users, not all or most (there are millions of devices!).
 
But what does this have to do with releasing new firmware?
Especially when there is a dedicated thread accepted as a “(unresolved) known issue”?
Complaining about this in other threads is just poor minded, so please stop that now.
 
Thanks.
 
I'm much more surprised that the two features even justify a new release... compared to all the previous ones, it's rather "thin", right?

@Buetigame "But what does this have to do with releasing new firmware?"

The firmware caused the debris error. And they've released another update (this one v63) and its still not fixed. That's what it has to do with it.

When people come in this thread they'll see the incompetence on display from Meta. And potential buyers will not purchase the device.

I think it's clear that the Quest 3 will get the laying down mode, I think people need to understand they are different devices using different technologies, each having unique hurdles. It could be the Quest 3 just has a stubborn bug which needs fixing or perhaps the laying down mode will be more expansive and rolled in to a larger update such as the airplane mode

Yeah, nobody likes waiting but it's better to have a better quality update than a shoddy one which is fixed down the road, because that's just tech-debt and that sucks for everyone involved.

Can anyone tell me the exact verison number is ? It seems like my Quest 3 updated last night, although i already had opted in for PTC, i got all kinds of weird stuff happening. Opted out, nothing happened. Factory reset my headset. Headset still on V63. I guess everything is working OK, but i have a feeling  like its stuck at the PTC V63 and not the official release. I have constant issue with my appdrawer crashing whenever i click on it. In that i have to open it once, crash, then again.

This was never the case with v62.

@S1MONSAYS  I'll let you know my v63 version is final when I get.  In the meantime I sggest you should disable meta quest beta, then wait for V64.  Trying to jump the que with beta-anything is not always a good idea for most imho.

@TomCgcmfc Thanks! Yeah this is what I've learned the hard way. Won't opt in for PTC in the future.

I got the v63 vor some days now and since yesterday I got a wifi drop every 5 to 10 minutes. It is on both of my accesspoints. My other 2 devices with v62 don't have that droppings. It is a Fritzbox and an Asus router. I don't know if my wifi is broken or there was an additional update causing these troubles.

Good news I turned on my headset for a couple minutes to check if it would download the v63 update and it can't!! I am never going to let it. (Today was when it was to be pushed out regardless if you turned it off in settings). But I disabled the service and its ability to connect to the internet!

@Buetigame  Ya, nothing really needed, for me anyway.  I’m not having any so-called common v62 issues with standalone or pcvr using Link or Air Link with my Q3/QPro/rtx4090.  Still, it will be interesting to see if v63 improves anything.

@TomCgcmfc Didn't have any issues with v62 either (Q2&3/rtx4070ti).
As I've understand threre are no improvements with v63, maybe one or another bugfix.
But I can confirm, that with v62 the battery time while (air-)linking inproves very much!

Hopefully v63 wouldn't make things any worse 🤣

OK, I got v63 (non-beta) earlier today on both my Q3 and QPro.  Both report versions 63.0.0.400.363.  Also got a meta link pc app update (again, non-beta) to 63.0.0.216.361.  My Q3 update included firmware (usual little firmware update icon) but my QPro only included software and controllers updates.

Tested with standalone and PCVR with Link and Air Link using Quest store, Rift store, and SteamVR.  All seems to be working fine so far.  Going in and out of stanalone to PCVR seems a little faster and more solid now.  Otherwise, everything seems to work about the same as v62, which was already working well, for me anyway.

I'm always pretty happy when updates don't break things, lol!  Thanks Meta and cheers.

I can confirm the firmware-update @ my destination... for Q2 and Q3.
Same versions (incl. desktop app), metioned by @TomCgcmfc .

Everything works fine so far, also PCVR.

But what about the "lying down" feature for Q2?
Or this uminosis "layout app" which should come with v62?

@Ryanality That would be really interessting!

Can you please fix the water/debris error and stop wasting time on stuff like Meta Cash?

Either let us toggle it in experimental features, in developer mode or just push an update that turns off the pop up. Simple.

It's been six weeks and I'm getting the bug in standalone, on V63. I'm not talking PTC either. This is literally with the official update.

I was also not getting the bug with V62 and got it within minutes of V63. You have pushed the bug on me with the official V63 update. I'm not even in the test channel!
