Facebook is going all-in on the Oculus Quest 2, having already stopped producing the Rift to focus on the standalone VR headset, instead. And with the upcoming Air Link feature, it will be easier to play PC-based VR games on the Quest 2 without being tethered to your computer.
Coming with the v28 software on Quest 2 and Oculus PC VR via Experimental Mode, Air Link is a new feature that lets you stream PC-based VR games from your computer to the Quest 2 headset. This will make it easier to play game like Half-Life: Alyx on a Quest 2, provided you have a capable PC.
The feature is essentially a wireless replacement for Oculus Link, which lets you do the same thing with a USB-C cable, and it acts as an official version for the user-created solutions we’ve seen in the past, like Virtual Desktop.
