Update January 18, 2018: Effective today, everyone has access to our updated Oculus desktop app, and you can opt in to the Rift Core 2.0 beta even if you aren’t enrolled in the Public Test Channel. Click here for details.
The wait is over! Rift Core 2.0 beta is beginning to roll out to all users on the Public Test Channel now. For more on what you can expect and what’s ahead, check out today’s blog post from Oculus Head of Rift Nate Mitchell.
To get started, opt into the Public Test Channel if you haven’t already done so.
Our new getting started guide has all the essentials on Rift Core 2.0 features, known issues, tips, and tricks. We’ll update this semi-regularly, so bookmark it now for future reference.
Rift Core 2.0 is first and foremost for the community. We can’t wait to hear what you think—and what you’d like to see in the future.
We’re also trying something new this time around—we set up UserVoice, so you can suggest features, provide feedback, and vote alongside the community on changes you’d like us to prioritize. We hope you’ll create an account and join us in the discussion.
For developers interested in adding Dash support to their apps, we recently made initial API changes available. We’ll share more information and docs next week.
This is the beginning of an exciting new chapter for Rift—and that one you can help shape. Thanks for being a part of the Rift community. We’re so glad to be here with you.
See you at Home.
