Virtual Desktop is a utility developed by an independent who allows you to connect your Oculus Quest 1 or 2 to a PC with a cable, via a Wi-Fi connection and even via the Internet. It allows you to take full remote control of your PC via your Oculus Quest 1 or 2 headset. The image is displayed on a virtual flat screen that can be giant or embedded in a variety of environments ranging from movie theaters to a game room, to stylish and modern apartments. In practice, Virtual Desktop lets you watch movies and TV, browse the web, and basically do whatever you would do with your PC if you were sitting in front of it. As it is well optimized and generates very little latency, it is quite possible to play with its classic games on a virtual screen which can be really very large. But its real strength is to allow you to play with your PC games. VR (SteamVR, Oculus, Viveport, Epic Game Store…) wireless. And once the freedom offered by this system has been tried, going back to a wired mode is really difficult.
For the little story, Virtual Desktop had been cut off from the wireless connection functionality on the Store Oculus Quest, car Facebook considered that the experience offered was not “satisfactory”. To unbridle it, it was therefore necessary, until today, to switch its headset to developer mode, to install Sidequest and patch it via the version available on this store alternative. With the latest update (1.20), this is all a thing of the past and works without having to tweak anything. Our tutorial is coming!
Here is the official list of features supported by Virtual Desktop 1.20 :
Connect up to 4 computers and switch between them in seconds;
Support most PCs and laptops running Windows 8.1 or later. (check the website for the system requirements);
Support Bluetooth mice, keyboards and gamepads;
Support 3D content (side by side or above / below) on screen;
Allows to switch between its monitors (for those with several);
Allows the use of the Quest microphone for the PC (passthrough microphone);
For better quality and latency, it is recommended to connect your wired PC to your box and to have a minimum 5 Ghz AC Wi-Fi connection;
Also works via the Internet (activate UPnP on your router).
Facebook therefore continues its openness to independents that began with the arrival of theApp Lab – of which we detail the content in real time here – and has just taken another big step with the acceptance of an additional technical functionality which is not of its making and on which it is working on its side. Virtual Desktop is therefore now available to everyone for € 19.99.
I hope you are in health and well.
