  • This will be rolling out gradually.

Media Sync

Meta is making it easier to view, edit and share your photos and videos you capture in VR. Media will now automatically sync to the Meta Quest mobile app from your headset.

  • You can turn this off by going to Camera settings and disabling the Sync Media to Meta Quest Mobile App setting.

Meta Quest mobile app updates

Meta is improving performance across the Meta Quest mobile app and adding new features.

View and Edit Avatar in Meta Horizon Home

Meta has added the ability to view and edit your avatar in your Home. You’ll now see your avatar’s arms and hands when in your Home, and if you haven’t created your avatar yet, you’ll see a default avatar. You can also view and edit your avatar by interacting with the new mirror we’ve added to Home. This will be rolling out gradually and will be initially available in 4 environments (Desert Terrace, Space Station, Winter Lodge, Cascadia).

  • In addition, you can now move around in your Home even when the Universal Menu is open. Press your controller thumbstick forward to see a set of potential hotspots, then aim at one of the hotspots and release the thumbstick to teleport.
  • Meta is also updating the Avatar Editor. This will also be rolling out gradually.

Universal Menu Customization

Meta wants to reduce the time it takes for you to get into the action when you put on your headset. You can now pin and unpin apps from your library to your Universal Menu for quicker access to your favorite games and experiences. Hover over apps in your library and select  to see the option to pin to your Universal Menu.

  • This will be rolling out gradually.

Accept Follower Requests from Invites

Meta has made it easier to accept follower requests by adding a button to the notification you receive when someone requests to follow you.

Capture Controller Shortcut

You can now capture images and videos using a controller shortcut.

  • To quickly take a photo, hold  then press the right controller trigger.
  • To quickly record a video, hold  then long-press the right controller trigger.

Privacy settings

  • Meta redesigned, revamped and retooled your in-VR privacy settings for all Meta Quest headsets.

Khazad-dûm Home Environment

Search improvements

    • Users will be able to clear out all their popular searches at once as well as clear out individual popular settings.
  • Meta is also making improvements to the search results overall. One of the ways they’re doing this is by enabling Search to bring up your previous searches higher in the search results. This allows you to more quickly access settings you commonly search for.

Recent apps

  • Meta has made updates to the Universal Menu to provide quick access to your three most recently used apps directly from the menu bar.
    • This will be rolling out to users gradually.
