Native 120Hz and Infinite Office support
the Oculus Quest 2 currently runs at 90Hz by default, but Oculus now offers gamers and developers the option of using a 120Hz display refresh rate. This feature will also be available in Experimental mode and, although it won’t there aren’t any apps that support it yet, that will change shortly.
Quest 2 system software will continue to run at 90Hz and Oculus Link support for 120Hz will be available in a future release.The last big feature of the v28 update is for Infinite Office. This is a feature that allows you to operate your desktop, keyboard, and mouse in virtual reality while using an Oculus Quest headset.
While the ability to add a Bluetooth-enabled mouse or trackpad to VR was added in January, this new update will let you literally bring your desktop to VR. By launching in experimental mode, you will be able to place a virtual desk on your real piece of furniture that will allow you to see it and use it in your home environment.
You will also be able to pair your physical keyboard with your Quest 2, which will allow you to view a 3D representation of your hands and keyboard in VR. The first keyboard to support this feature is the Logitech K830, and more will be added in the future.
This v28 update will be rolling out gradually, but Quest users should see it coming in the near future. It is important to note that the Quest 2 and the PC must be running v28 for everything to work.
This news precedes the very first Oculus game showcase on April 21 which will include updates to Pistol Whip, Lone Echo 2, Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge, and more.
