We’re adding support for 3DS credit cards for the Meta Quest app store in VR. This additional security protocol adds a layer of protection in online payment transactions when you make a purchase.
App developers have to opt-in to enable 3DS credit cards for in-app purchases.
Unlock Pattern for Apps
We’ve added a new capability to our existing unlock pattern allowing you to lock individual apps on your Meta Quest headset. This allows you to use your device unlock pattern to control access to existing apps in your library.
End-to-end encryption for Messenger in VR
We’re transitioning all 1:1 communication (messaging and calling) on Messenger in VR to use end-to-end encryption. This provides an additional layer of security when using Messenger in VR.
Keep in mind, to use end-to-end encryption, both you and the person you’re chatting with will need to have the latest version of Messenger on your respective devices.
Audio Accessibility Settings
We’ve added additional audio features to help everyone hear every sound in VR. These include:
Ability to adjust the left-right audio balance.
Option to switch between stereo and mono system audio.
You can find these settings in the Accessibility section of your in-VR settings panel.
With this release, we’re moving controller settings out of experimental status and into the settings panel to make it avaliable for everyone.
Controller Settings were added to your adjustable settings to give power users more options, improve accessibility, and address issues that may arise with wear and tear.
The setting that you can adjust include Thumbstick angle, and Thumbstick Range and Deadzone.
