Solo gaming has a soft spot in our hearts, but sometimes you want to squad up for some co-op adventure, face off with some competitive multiplayer action, or just hang out with friends (and maybe make some new ones). Thankfully, it’s easier than ever to jump into a game with other people in VR. In this summer’s v31 software update, we rolled out two new features to help you organize gaming sessions with friends in VR.

First up is the “Invite to App” button, which you can access directly from VR. Located in the Quest universal menu when you’re in a supported VR app, you can use it to send a pop-up invite notification to friends, people you recently played with, or in-game connections. If they accept, they’ll be whisked right into your multiplayer session—and you can now view and manage the group of people you're playing with right from the universal menu as well and rejoin them if you get separated. We’re also making it easier for you to set up multiplayer sessions outside the headset. Navigate to the Social tab in the Oculus mobile app on iOS or Android, select the VR app you’re planning a session for (you’ll be able to pick from any supported apps that you have installed), and it will generate a custom Invite Link for you. Send the Invite Link to your friends on Messenger and anyone who has the Invite Link can join in the fun with you.

Today, we’re highlighting some of the multiplayer gems that let you make the most of these features on the Quest Platform.

Racket: Nx
Racket: Nx is a new kind of game that challenges the limits of what you can do with a racket and ball in VR. The game is played inside a giant glass dome, the walls of which light up with targets you must destroy with the ball—but this is no ordinary ball. ​​Hit it with force and it will slam into the wall, rolling across it and bulldozing everything in its path! Use your racket's tractor beam to pull it back, or simply to line up your next shot exactly where you want it as you learn to control the ball to perfection.
