Tech writers and experts wished that the Meta Quest Pro headset, which costs $1,499, could have captured mixed reality when it was first released so that they could show us what they saw during testing. Version 47 of the software, which grants access to that feature, has already begun to be made available to some users and will soon be available to all of them.
Cameron Faulkner of The Verge explains that you will be able to hit record with this software that combines your real and virtual worlds. The graininess of the image can be seen in the video below. It is positive that this feature was included so quickly after the headset was released.
The other upcoming feature that will be exclusive to Quest Pro is background audio playback. In order to listen while playing games or attempting to connect with coworkers in Horizon Workrooms, you can use the headset to load a browser-based version of your streaming service.
In Meta’s collection of virtual reality headsets, the Quest 2 has been swiftly downgraded to a supporting role. This software update virtually eliminates all new exciting features for the $399.99 (or $349 for the holidays) headset for the first time. Faulkner trust this isn’t a pattern that proceeds; Perhaps these particular additions cannot be accommodated by the aging hardware.
However, a few minor updates will soon be made available to Quest 2 and Pro users. While you change the way your virtual reality avatar looks, you’ll be able to see how you look in a new mirror in your home.
Meta has also updated the mobile apps for iOS and Android, focusing on making it easier to see when friends are online. The headset is taking on a more widget-like appearance to make it easier to share what you’re seeing with others.
According to a statement released by Meta, “We’re bringing your VR friends front and center on the Meta Quest Mobile app, so it’s simple to see when they’re online, what they’re up to, send them a message, or start playing together.”
Meta added, “You can make your Wishlist on the Meta Quest Store public to make things easier for the gift-givers in your life so your friends and family know what virtual reality (VR) games you’re hoping to snag this year.”
