I haven’t made an avatar so my character just shows up as a grey man. I don’t care what the avatar looks like, but I don’t want to have to see the arms or torso! Is there any way to disable the avatar or go back to the original oculus transparent hands?

I also want to express my desire to disable the horrible new arms. They trigger some sort of motion sickness, since they do not match the movement of my real arms. Please just let us use the ghost hands as previously. I did not ask for this feature and bought the device with the expectation of using the ghost hands.

The new arms in v47 are distracting and induce motion sickness. Please allow us to just use the ghost hands, as previously.

Howdy! We see you have a question regarding your new updated Avatar! As they provided the new features on the avatar at the time being we don't have a disabling option and believe this is a very good idea! You can however, post this is our Ideas Forums that way your voice is heard. We are always looking for new ideas and suggestions and would love to have you be part of it!

It's a terrible idea. Please add an option to disable the arms.

The arms and body look horrible and spoil the immersion of the home environment. Please add an option to disable it.

If they are going to have arms always on, they need to at least improve the IK.

Updated my headset today... was rather horrified by the arms. I thought there must be an option to to back to just ghost hands but there's not... I really don't like the arms why isn't there at least a toggle?

What the hell happened with not sticking this horrible stuff under the experimental category and give us a choice. Same thing with the mirror I now fear reaching my headset, I don't want to look at myself. Put things where they belong and give us the choice.

Why can't I "give kudos" to the posts I agree with that say you need to give users an option to turn off these arms we do not like? Did you invest too much into this feature to error correct?  That might be a systemic problem.. hope not.  Love my quest.  Don't break it please 🙂

Looks like people have spoken up. This is all due to the crappy "metaverse" idea, but it's implemented in a way that's absolutely horrible. You're just running users off at this point. Screw the Metaverse. I've tried your stupid Meta Horizons and it's loaded with little kids! I thought the age limit was 18!!

I refuse to use your metaverse, so I don't want arms or anything. I just want to be left alone to play my games.
