These features and enhancements will become available starting the week of June 14th, 2022.

Meta Horizon Home

In this release we’re introducing early access to Meta Horizon Home; your personal VR social space. With your new home in VR, you'll now have a central place where you can seamlessly:

  • Invite friends and family over to hang out together as Avatars
  • Speak with one another using spatialized audio
  • Coordinate and group launch into supported multiplayer experiences together

Watch Oculus TV together with friends in Meta Horizon Home

We know that sharing things you love is a great way to spend time with friends and family, but distance can make that challenging. Defy distance and share experiences by watching Oculus TV together with friends in Meta Horizon Home, where you can do things like:

  • Host a virtual movie night for friends and check out feature films from Lionsgate
    • Note: Lionsgate films are available only in US
  • Travel to space and experience life on the International Space Station
  • Get a front row seat at an on-demand concert for you and your closest friends

Parental supervision

We’re launching our initial suite of parental supervision tools. Teens initiate the request for their parent or guardian to supervise their account. Parents can accept these requests from the Oculus mobile app. Once parental supervision is set up, parents can access the following features:

  • The parent will be able to block specific apps that may be inappropriate for their teen, thus preventing the teen from launching those apps. Apps that can be blocked include apps like web browsers and apps available on the Meta Quest Store
  • The parent will be able to approve their teen’s download or purchase of an app that is blocked by default based on its IARC rating
    • Teens 13+ can submit an app access request, which triggers a notification to their parent
    • The parent can then approve or deny the request from the Oculus mobile app
  • The parent will be able to view all of the apps their teen owns
  • The parent will be able to receive “Purchase Notifications,” alerting them when their teen makes a purchase in VR
  • The parent will be able to view headset screen time from the Oculus mobile app, so they’ll know how much time their teen is spending in VR
  • The parent will be able to view their teen’s list of Oculus friends
  • The parent will be able to block Link and Air Link, which will prevent their teen from accessing content from their PC on their Quest headset

Note that Parental Supervision tools will be rolling out gradually.

Link/Air Link Windows 11 beta support

We’ve improved performance and stability for using Link and Air Link with Windows 11 systems.

  • The console window workaround is no longer required

App Library filter and sort settings

We’ve added a new panel in Settings that lets you control your default filter and sort order within your app library.

  • This will be rolling out gradually

In-headset color

We've improved color accuracy for Oculus Home, System UI and other 2D panel apps for Meta Quest headsets. We've also provided a Color Space setting that allows you to choose how you want the colors to appear in your headset in these areas.

  • You can check out the new Color Space options in your Experimental Settings panel.
