Quest Headset Owners Can Capture Gameplay Using their Phones

Meta’s Reality Labs unit is rolling out one last major software update for the Quest and 2 before the end of the year. It will be one you want to download as soon as you can because it adds some handy features

The update also includes several features Meta said were coming “soon” at its Connect conference in late October. Users can now make voice calls through the Messenger app on Quest and 2 headsets. The feature allows you to not only call other Quest users but you can also dial up your Facebook friends.

Some games will also allow you to back up your saved data to the cloud.The feature may not be immediately available on the Quest headset after downloading the update. Reality Labs says it’s rolling it out at a slower pace to make sure it works correctly. Additionally, it’s an opt-in feature for developers, so not every game may support it even after it’s broadly available.

While not new to the Quest platform, today’s update also removes the experimental tag that had been applied to the multi-user and app-sharing features that were introduced at the start of the year.Users need an iPhone XS or above with iOS 11 or higher to use the new mobile mixed reality camera. With today’s release, about a dozen games support the feature, including Superhot VR, Pistol Whip, and Synth Riders.
