Add new VR applications

For customers on OS V23 of Oculus Quest or Oculus Quest 2, there’s an additional way to add VR applications into their App Libraries. With Business Channels, ISVs can privately deliver VR applications directly to customers’ App Libraries while still giving company admins control of their deployments. Business Channels also make it fast and easy for ISVs to provide apps to potential customers. Oculus for Business customers can contact an ISV to request a demo and provide their Device Manager ID to start the process.
For information on business channels visit our developer site.

New in-headset pause behavior

Users can soon experience a new behavior when they pause a VR app, whether they press the Oculus button on a controller or — when hand tracking is enabled — use their dominant hand to make the system gesture. Note, ISVs or developers must update their VR apps in order to enable the following feature.
Currently, when a user pauses an app, they’re sent out of the app to the home environment to access the Universal Menu. They have to re-enter the app to resume the experience.
Provided that the ISV or developer enables this change, when a user pauses an app that enables focus awareness, the Universal Menu will appear as an overlay and the user can make a selection from the menu. When the user is finished, the overlay will disappear and the app experience will resume.
For more information on the updated pause behavior, visit our developer site.

Device Manager search and sort

UI enhancements make it even easier to navigate the Device Fleet tab. Admins can now use a Search bar and column sorting functionality to eliminate scrolling and get fast access to details about specific devices.

March 2021

Expanded App Library display

With the new Sideloaded Apps setting in Device Manager, admins can control whether users see applications in their headsets’ App Libraries that were not installed via Device Manager. This enables users to see and launch applications that were sideloaded via a USB cable and the ADB command or installed via Mobile Device Management (MDM) systems.
For information on app management, visit our support site.

January 2021

Simplified app management

Admins now have greater visibility into the status of applications on their organization’s headsets. The Device Manager shows whether an app is downloading, installing, or successfully installed, and it provides details on any deployment errors that may have occurred.

January 2021

Device naming

With this new feature, admins can give a name to each headset in their fleet so it’s easy to identify individual headsets in the Oculus for Business Device Manager.

More apps

We're making several Oculus apps available in Device Manager as a complimentary benefit of your subscription. The apps are designed to help users get up to speed as they navigate VR for the first time. You can find them on the More Apps page and add them to your App Library at no additional cost.
For information on these apps, visit our support site.

Hand tracking

Interact with VR experiences more intuitively and naturally using hand gestures — no need to learn how to operate controllers. Hand tracking eliminates the need to transport and maintain controllers with your headsets, and it can be enabled with a simple toggle switch in the Device Manager.
For instructions on enabling hand tracking, visit our support site.

September 2020

OS update scheduling

IT admins now have more control over the timing of Oculus for Business software updates. By setting block-out periods, they can prevent automatic updates from happening when headsets are likely to be in use. Once a block-out period is over, the software will update.
For information on scheduling updates, visit our support site.

September 2020

The Universal Menu reimagined for enterprise

With no social features or Oculus Store links, the updated UI makes it easy for users to stay focused. And a new Admin mode enables IT staff to give users access to a single application or all applications on a device.

Oculus browser to boost productivity

Boost efficiency and collaboration with a new in-headset browser. Open web apps such as Google Docs and Salesforce.com during virtual meetings, access WebVR content, and log into LMS accounts to launch training experiences. The browser includes enterprise capabilities like security patching and website compatibility, but it eliminates distracting consumer features like store apps.
