    Re: Oculus enables Air Link PC streaming feature

    I gave this a test - it works...but there is still too much latency for most of the PC titles I tried out (Half Life Alyx & Star Wars Squadrons).

    I think i'll stick with my long USB-C cable for now Still nice to see them offer the option - for the less motion intensive titles I think it will work fine and nice to have an officially supported method!

    Re: Oculus enables Air Link PC streaming feature

    Would be interesting to see how this compares to Virtual Desktop. I literally have a mesh wifi spot (primary one plugged into the router) 3 foot from my head, So I should expect excellent wifi strength. Virtual Desktop works great but is has a few hundles to go through, especially during first time set-up. So a simplier, integrated solution would be welcome if it can run just as well.

    Gutted it won't work on my Q1, never tried virtual desktop as only really wanted to play Alyx! I'm assuming a cable is still the way to go?

    Rob_B to be honest Virtual Desktop is superb and very easy to use once you've done the initial set-up. Well worth the effort and small cost.

    Re: Oculus enables Air Link PC streaming feature

    Anyone got any thoughts on the 120hz mode this update also unlocks? I haven't used mine in a few weeks but honestly that seems like a bigger deal than the wireless streaming, since VD already had that covered for me if I ever didn't want to use the cable.

    I doubt Alyx would work on a Q1
