Impressive steps for Virtual Reality Headsets.
Oculus has announced new features that will be rolling out to Oculus Quest headsets, one of them being Air Link - a way to experience VR content completely wireless.
The press release gives a lengthy explanation of what Air Link is and how it works, but in layman terms, the software update will allow Oculus owners to connect to their PC's via Wi-Fi and the new Air Link steaming pipeline.
Oculus notes that users will require a strong and stable Wi-Fi connection, and that not every network or PC setup will be ideal. Guidelines suggest playspace should be within roughly 20 feet of the Wi-Fi router, with the network operating on 5G.
The update will also include the option to enable 120Hz display on the Oculus Quest 2, leading to a much smoother gameplay experience.
