VR Recording On Quest Gets A Major Upgrade

Update v44 will begin rolling out to Quest headsets over the next few weeks.

Meta today announced the rollout of update v44 for the Meta Quest and Meta Quest 2 headsets, offering gamers a number of new features designed to enhance your headset experience. This includes advanced recording settings, new parental control tools and additional security options.

Advanced video recording

Recording VR gameplay on Quest just got a whole lot better. The V44 introduces several exciting options, including the ability to shoot in landscape (16:9), increase image stabilization, and increase frame rates and bit rates.

Before this update, if you wanted to adjust any of the above settings, you had to use a program such as SideQuest. Now just switch to Advanced Camera Settings in the Experimental Settings menu.

New security tools

In addition to video recording, v44 adds several new security and parental control tools designed to give you more control over who has access to what content on your headset. Here is a list of the new options:

  • Block developer mode on supervised accounts, preventing the ability to sideload unofficial games or apps.
  • Lock multiple apps behind a single lock pattern.
  • Filter and batch lock games and apps based on rating categories (example: lock all M-rated games).

Update v44 comes only several weeks before Meta Connect 2022, a virtual event where Meta will unveil its next VR headset. Codenamed Project Cambria, the device will feature both mouth and eye tracking as well as high-resolution color streaming.

As was the case with previous updates, v44 will gradually roll out to Meta Quest headsets, so don’t be alarmed if you don’t see the aforementioned options available to you yet. For more information visit here.
