Meta’s working on a fix for Oculus Air Link on Windows 11


What you need to know:

  • Oculus Air Link is Meta’s wireless alternative to plugging a Quest into a PC to play VR games.
  • Windows 11 introduced a number of performance issues for Air Link, including frame rate drops.
  • A developer from Meta has promised that a fix is on the way.

Initially released in 2021, Oculus Air Link (opens in new tab) allows players to wirelessly connect their Quest headset to a gaming PC, making cordless PC VR a reality. It wasn’t without its issues, especially since the service hinges entirely on the user’s router speed, but Windows 11 has been causing a number of issues for Air Link users.

A VR indie studio by the name BattleAxeVR (@BattleAxeVR), Tweeted about the issues some of its team were facing, specifically citing frame rate and stuttering. John Carmack, a consulting CTO at Meta, responded, saying that there was a fix in the works, but didn’t provide any specific details about when those fixes would come for the Quest 2 (opens in new tab).
