The Public Test Channel (PTC) for Quest and Quest 2 v49 is starting to roll out. Meta Quest Pro is not included in the PTC at this time. Let's use this thread for collecting feedback on it. Share your impressions and let us know if you see any issues. Please make sure to also send in bug reports along with posting here if you notice anything going wrong.


Thanks to everyone testing out PTC and sharing your feedback! We appreciate your help testing out the core functionality of software as we develop!

This did start rolling out last week, I was out of the office so this post is delayed. My apologies!

Help others find great discussions and answers by adding kudos and marking solutions to your questions.

I have two questions:

1 - Why are old PTC megathreads still pinned, while the new ones aren't?

2 - Why does PTC has such limited subscription system?

It almost feels like you guys don't really want feedback...

1. Just an oversight on my part when I published this one, usually when I publish the new thread I make the adjustments to the old one.

2. There's a lot of folks in the PTC, but I don't know the exact number. They wanted a good representative number of users in there, without flooding the group. The team does check out the total number of users regularly to see if we need to reopen it up to new users.


And we absolutely do want feedback! PTC feedback is extremely helpful and feedback is always a gift!

So with this update the 7% gpu speed increase is automatically enabled where with 47 I read you needed to enter standby after starting an app?

Level 4

So now we can rotate the POV even with the home UI opened? What a killer-feature! Just another punch in the face for us bedridden folks which are asking since forever for a way to tilt/rotate POV system-wide (read: in-game). VR should be all about accessibility since its very intrinsic nature but you deliberately decide to ignore this fact, even if it would cost you nothing to implement such feature; and don't tell me it's to avoid motion-sickness or whatever because you obviously could make it an opt-in feature. Keep going the wrong way Meta!

Hopefully laying down feature should be coming soon going by this tweet.

Let's just hope they don't screw it up like "only for home environments®" or whatnot

I’ve been getting a weird issue since v49. When I wake the headset, I often spawn far away from the normal home position, way outside of the home environment. It happens even more often in Link. This has been a real nuisance for development—I’m constantly in and out of the headset while working on and testing my Unity app, and many times a day, I launch my game and am immediately falling into the void because I’m outside of the map. When it happens, I have to exit Link and reconnect to get back to the proper home position (recentering myself in Link brings the menu to my location instead of bringing me back to the home position).

Any news on the ability to disable the avatar arms? I want the ghost hands back. I have barely been using my device since the arms were introduced, I just can't deal with them.
