Shortly after the launch of the Oculus Quest 2, a software update enabled Oculus Link, allowing the headset to be hooked up to a PC to play VR games. Now, Oculus Link is getting another upgrade, removing the need for a cable at all.
Today Oculus has announced Air Link for the Quest 2, which will arrive as part of the Oculus v28 software update on PC and on the Quest 2 itself. At first, Air Link will be an “experimental” feature, so there may be some early issues that will get ironed out over time.
Air Link gives Quest 2 owners the option of playing PC VR games wirelessly using a strong Wi-Fi connection. As long as your setup is within 20 feet of your wireless router, this should be a good option.
Oculus also says that Air Link should only be used on a secure 5GHz network with an AC or AX router. To enable Air Link, you can find it in the beta section of the settings menu in the Oculus PC app. To re-enable Oculus Link over USB-C, you will need to disable Air Link in the Experimental Panel.
