10 tips to make you an Oculus Quest 2 master

Oculus Quest 2 makes setting up in virtual reality easier (and cheaper) than ever before. If you’ve invested in the hottest VR device right now, you’ll want to know how to get the most out of it. We’ve discussed many VR accessories and our favorite games here, and they work for both the original Quest and the new Quest 2. Below are our top tips and tricks to specifically maximize your time on Quest 2.

1) Switch to hand control

There are hand tracking features built into the Oculus Quest 2, and while it can be said to be a work in progress, it can definitely be used. You can make sure hand controls are enabled by going to the button equipment Section in the main Settings menu on your Quest 2.

You can then open Hands in your main app list for a tutorial on how to choose, and so on. We’ve found that keeping your hands further away from your body works best. If an app or game doesn’t support hand tracking yet, you’ll be notified when you launch it.

2) Align the focus correctly

The Oculus Quest 2 changes the way you adjust the headset to take into account interpupillary distance (IPD) – basically the gap between your eyes. There are three configurations to choose from on the new device, which, according to Oculus, cover 95 percent of the population.

To make an adjustment, simply grasp the sides of one of the eye lenses and move it to the left or right (the other lens will move accordingly). You may need to spend a few minutes playing a few games to find out which of the three settings is best for you.

3) Find your comfort level

Our brains still struggle when our eyes tell them we are moving, but the rest of our body tells them we are standing still. This can lead to motion sickness in virtual reality, but it depends to some extent on your own vulnerability and the game you play.

If you find this to be a problem, when browsing apps, find the convenience rating and choose accordingly: It will be Cozy (Green), Moderate (yellow) or Violently (red). Some games also have their own settings to limit the risk of motion sickness.

4) Connect your computer

Oculus Link is now officially out of beta, which means you can expect a better experience when you plug the Quest 2 into a computer with the Oculus software. This gives you more graphical power and access to all high quality VR games on the Rift headsets.

In addition to the Oculus App for Windows and an Oculus Quest 2, you only need a premium USB cable. Oculus has some advice on how to find one here. Of course, the longer the cable, the more freedom you have when moving.

5) Adjust the tracking sensitivity

The touch controllers that came with Oculus Quest 2 are better than ever, but if you’re having problems, you can try adjusting the tracking sensitivity from the Settings panel: Open the device Then search for the menu Tracking frequency In the list.

Your choices are Automatically, 50 Hz, or 60 HzBy manually setting the frequency, you can avoid interference with the lighting in your room. If your lights are blinking at the same frequency as the tracking frequency, it can cause controller detection gaps.

6) See the real world

Like its predecessor, the Quest 2 has a passthrough feature that allows you to see both the real world and VR elements: to see them, you can either go to the edge of the game boundary or to walk Virtual environment Section in the main menu of Oculus Settings.

You can also double-tap the side of your headset to activate passthrough when you activate this feature via Experimental functions in the settings. One of the handy uses of passthrough is to look for particularly bright areas that can cause device tracking problems. It’s also useful to make sure pets


7) Transfer VR to your TV

The Oculus Quest 2 has a built-in casting function, with which the processes in the headset with the Chromecast (or Android TV) connected can be sent to any large screen. It’s perfect for parties where you have an audience of friends and family.

To enable this, all you have to do is open the sharing option from the main menu and then select it occupation (Compatible devices on the local Wi-Fi network will appear, so select the one you want.) One of the options is to transfer the stream to the Oculus app on your phone.

8) Keep your headset clean

Many of the cleaning and maintenance tips that apply to the first Oculus Quest also apply to the Oculus Quest 2: wipe the lenses in the headset with a dry optical lens microfiber cloth and avoid using chemicals inside components.

Non-abrasive, antibacterial wipes can be used to clean the straps and foam around the headset. However, do not use alcohol or an abrasive cleaning solution. Make absolutely sure that your Quest 2 is never exposed to direct sunlight, as this can cause permanent damage very quickly.

9) Change your living space

You will spend a lot of time in your virtual “home” in the Oculus Quest 2 user interface. So it pays to choose an environment that you like. If you go to the main menu Settings and then Virtual environmentyou can see the gallery and make your choice.

Some of the environments need to be downloaded before they can be used. Therefore, you may have to wait a few minutes. We especially like the futuristic Cyber ​​City and the cozy winter lodge, where you can sit and relax and watch the cable cars go by.

10) Invest in accessories

With the Quest 2, Oculus is making a concerted effort to back it up with official, high-quality accessories: we particularly recommend the $ 79 Elite Strap, which provides a more secure fit for the headset and has an adjustable tension wheel on the back.

If you’re particularly cashless, you can pay $ 200 for the Elite Strap, an extra battery (to play longer), and a carrying case – perfect for VR on the go. You can also pick up differently shaped faceplates for the headset from the Oculus Store if the one in the box does not fit properly.
