Disable camera snap on Quest 3

So much as the title says. How do I disable the really annoying 45° horizontal camera snap when playing a game? Currently playing Asgard’s Wrath II and considering the whole point of VR is to be immersive, I really can’t understand why they’ve chosen to have this jerky camera movement as part of the navigation system! Unless I’ve missed something in the settings and it’s entirely my fault of course. I’ve looked through the settings and can’t find anything that will allow me to disable this camera behaviour. 
I’ve seen a video that explains how to do this when playing Roblox, so I assume there has to be a way for any other game?

HELP!

How the camera turns is determined by the developer of each game, there is no overall system setting for it. Some games give you a choice, some don't.

The reason for snap turning is it tends to cause less vr sickness than smooth turning, the snap doesn't feel like motion happens so it doesn't conflict with your inner ear as much. It's the same with teleport movement instead of smooth walking, the instant jump is less sickening.

 

Most games do have the option for both turn methods these days. I haven't tried Asgard's Wrath 2, so I don't know if it does or not.

Thanks for the insight. Frustrating to say the least I have to say. Ideally it should be always down to the player to make this choice and ought to be an option in the headset menu IMO. It certainly spoils the whole immersive aspect
