Oculus Quest 2 gets official wireless support for PC VR with Air Link

The best thing about the Oculus Quest 2 is being able to play games untethered, flailing about in Beat Saber without worrying about tripping over the cable or yanking it out of your PC. That only works natively for games installed on the headset, however, and if you want to play PC VR games like Half-Life: Alyx you need to either plug in a USB cable, or fork out $20 for a third-party solution like Virtual Desktop.

That’s about to change with Air Link, a new feature announced in the latest Oculus blog post. Part of the v28 software update rolling out this month, Air Link is “a completely wireless way to play PC VR content on Quest 2 using WiFi” that you’ll be able to opt into in experimental mode.
