Original Oculus Quest gets Air Link for wireless streaming

The original Oculus Quest will soon receive Air Link support, which will allow you to stream VR games to your PC directly to your headset without a wired connection. In a Facebook post hinting at the Quest v30 software update, Mark Zuckerberg commented that there will be Air Link support for the first Oculus Quest headset, although he did not say when it will happen.

Air Link was recently released on Oculus Quest 2 with the v29 update, allowing you to play PC VR games not available on the Oculus Quest directly through a headset like the Half-Life Alyx. This feature is a wireless solution for Oculus Link that does the same but via a USB-C cable and provides official support for non-Oculus games. Air Link requires a powerful enough computer to run games and a good enough internet connection to stream to your headset. This feature requires a 5 GHz router; Facebook recommends connecting your computer over Ethernet to minimize latency.

The original Oculus Quest was reportedly discontinued last September, right ahead of the Oculus Quest 2’s release in October. As of the end of March, the Oculus Quest 2 has surpassed all other Oculus-branded headsets, with the exclusive Assassin’s Creed and Splinter Cell games coming to the headset in the future.
