Quest build v39 release notes

These features and enhancements will be rolling out soon.

Virtual Workspace

We’ve added a section to our settings page so you can customize your virtual workspace to fit your needs.

  • We’re also adding a mountain study environment complete with snow capped peaks and serene redwoods creating the optimal environment to enjoy peace and quiet while you focus on your work.


We moved all Multitasking features from the experimental settings panel. Soon, everyone will be able to simply utilize multitasking by default. We also added the following new features:

  • We've expanded the ability to use side-by-side app windows to additional 2D apps. Previously, side-by-side multitasking was only available through the experiments panel or for Browser via multiple tabs. Now, you can have three side-by-side windows for additional supported apps.
  • From the universal menu you can easily switch between multiple windows to launch, focus, minimize, and close any open apps that support multitasking. You can also switch to specific instances for apps that support multi-instance experiences (like Browser).
  • We've also made some general multitasking improvements to let you switch between your apps more efficiently.
  • Please note, these updates to multi-tasking will be gradually rolling out over time to ensure the best possible experience for all Quest owners.

Feed redesign

We’re redesigning notifications to make it easier to manage both in VR and in the Oculus mobile app.

  • In-VR, you can now sort notifications by time or by app.
  • In the Oculus mobile app, you can swipe across a notification and tap the Settings Icon to quickly unsubscribe or change notification settings for that app.


You can now share links from your mobile browser to your headset via the Oculus Mobile App.

  • When you share a link, it’ll be opened in Browser the next time you put on your headset.
    • We previously introduced this feature to Android devices, and now we're bringing this to iOS devices.
  • We’re updating the logo for Browser to better reflect our vision for the product.

User Reporting Improvements

  • Simplified the user reporting process, reducing the number of steps required for users to submit reports.
  • Added a freeform field for users to add any additional details to their report.
Help others find great discussions and answers by adding kudos and marking solutions to your questions.

Level 4

I am PTC member and I still haven’t seen the Virtual Workspace options in settings yet. Any timetable as to when we can expect that @Ryanality ?

Level 4

I was last on PTC v39 before I left that channel to get normal updates again. The PTC program has since been full and not joinable for me.


Will I be getting this normal release even though it's the same version number, v39? Or do I have to wait until v40?


I just really want to get back on normal software to see if my PTC issues are fixed.

@Kuraray   I left the Quest PTC when I was on v37 PTC and I got a final v37 updates no problem.  After that, I got the normal v38 updates. (including a small one yesterday).  For me the current Quest PTC makes no sense because it's not reversible like the Oculus Desktop pc app.  If this changes in the future, including opening it up to all users, I may look at opting into it again.  For now, I'll stick to public Quest releases.

i9 13900K water cooled, RTX4090, Z790 MB w/wifi6e, 32Gb 5200 ram, 2x2TB SSD, 1000W PSU, Win 11, QPro w/Air Link, Vive Pro

Thanks for that report. I also plan to stay on public releases after this.

Level 3

Since the Quest 2 automatically installed this update I can't control the refresh rate anymore. It is hard locked to 72hz and all options to change that are gone. Doesn't matter if it's native on the Quest 2 or using airlink. Everything is locked to 72hz. Also the screen sometimes stays black. This update absolutely made things worse. It's horrible.

Are you on the PTC v39 or regular v39? 

Since I never opted into any Betas, I assume it's the regular one.

Disappointing to hear. I was on the PTC v39 when I first got the 72Hz lock and I was hoping it was be fixed before they pushed out the regular v39.

100% agree I am having the exact same issues hope they fix this major bug soon.
