With v66, we’re reducing the amount of visual distortion in Passthrough on Meta Quest 3. We’ve put out a number of Passthrough-related improvements in the last few software updates, but this is the big one, and it will significantly improve the Mixed Reality experience. Check out the blog for all the details: https://www.meta.com/blog/quest/meta-quest-v66-software-update-reduced-passthrough-distortion-backgr...

Excited to hear about the reduction in distortion.

When should we expect v66 to roll out?

hi @J40NYR — it's a gradual rollout, so if you haven't gotten v66 yet, you should see the update come through soon

@lisajaloza 

May I ask why I can't see the full version of v66 news? I remember that I could see it here before, and the blog only has a simple introduction and does not have complete news. Can you provide a link to the complete news?

@lisajaloza A gradual rollout is fine, and to be expected, but we don't yet see where v66 is actually starting to roll out.

Please can someone explain what the hell is going on with UK releases of the PTC..? I'm on v66 and these are the following so called improvements that i've NOT gotten yet..?

1. Furniture mapping. (v65 release)

2. Multi modal. (v64 release)

3. Hide unused Apps. (v66 release)

4. Sleep timer (v66 release)

5. Improve passthrough (v66 release)

6. Voice control (v52 release)

I haven't gotten any of these on both my Q3 & QPro ? and yes i've tried both opting out of the PTC & a full reset and nothing..?

hi @M0RIATY 

I believe we did receive the improved passthrough from v64 (I think it was)

I haven't updated to v66 yet although the PTC release can be fairly watered down compared to the future public release.

Multi modal is an issue on Quest as well as the Meta glasses, I do believe this is a little more complicated regards to the regulations of each country so I'm giving Meta the benefit of the doubt here.

Hopefully we get a bumper rollout sometime soon 😂

@TomCgcmfc it says week of June 3, 2024.

Meta Quest release notes 

But you are right.....it should be said in the announcement post.

There is no "announcement post" at all... this is a "news link" only.
And... there are no (international) release-notes:

What's up with you, Meta?

wow the distortion is nearly gone for me. Fantastic work!

Yep, passthrough is now what we always wanted.

I still think back to VR 10 years ago - how far we've come!!

So have people actually gotten this release? I'm still waiting.

We are waiting for the server problems to be solved, no updates can be made, there are currently bricked devices on first setup because of the servers not responding to ota update requests

Wonderful update  My left controller won't connect now.

And passthrough is still horrible even at Meta's recommended lighting.

I am now running 66.0.0.659.370 and each time I have 6e connected when the quest 3 goes to sleep when I put it on it says wifi is connected but its not. The busy circle never goes away when searching for update, also games that need the Internet do not launch. To get it working I just disconnect wifi then immediately connect and it works. I think other wifi like 2.4g or 5g do the same.

I asked these questions a week ago and got no answer. switched back to v66 release version and apart from the wrist button and furniture mapping nothing else..!!

1. Multi modal. (v64 release) Doubt will ever see this feature either.!

2. Hide unused Apps. (v66 release) Such a simple feature to do and still not working

3. Sleep timer (v66 release) 

4. Improve passthrough (v66 release) How about doing something with the Quest Pro's too.?

5. Voice control (v52 release) Given up hope of ever getting this feature.!
