We’ve made improvements to the in-VR settings that allow you to better personalize your VR experience.

Please note, the experiments section includes features that are still being developed, so you may encounter anything from minor-issues to app-crashes.

We’ve made system updates that improve performance when running some applications.
We’ve created new icons and optimized our iconography for consistency, improved performance and enhanced readability.
Touch controller vibrations during the update scared the sh*t out of me. Home alone, watching a movie in a darkness when suddenly something vibrates in the darkness. 😄
The advent of computers and the subsequent accumulation of incalculable data has given rise to a new system of memory and thought, parallel to your own. Humanity has underestimated the consequences of computerization.
Yeah, funny, they suckered us right in with the "you can manually update" thing, it only means that if you would have already gotten the staged rollout, not that you could actually, you know, update it whenever you knew an update was rolling out. LoL Patience is a virtue, guess it's time to exercise miine. LOL
