  • WiFi 6E Comes to Meta Quest Pro: If you’ve got a WiFi 6E-capable network at home, you’ll now be able to find and connect to it with Meta Quest Pro for speeds up to 1.6Gbps.
  • Advanced Camera Settings and Stereo Audio: Advanced Camera Settings are now being moved from the Experimental Settings panel into Camera Settings. With this new update, video recordings will capture stereo audio instead of mono.
