But with new updates that bring increased functionality, the Quest 2 still has a lot more to give.

Here's how you can take your Quest 2 to the next level.

How To Download Quest v37

To download or update to v37, you'll need to connect your Quest 2 to Wi-Fi and have it turned on.

You'll want to make sure your headset is charged too.

Leave the headset turned on, not sleeping, and it should start updating to the latest version.

Alternatively, you can manually check for updates.

See your Apple Magic keyboard

In v28, you could actually see Logitech's K830 keyboard in VR, but now you can do the same with Apple's Magic Keyboard.

This means you can view a 3D representation of the device and your hands in your Home environment.

It's a useful update, especially if you're looking to keep up the comms without having to step out of virtual reality.

Link files from Android devices to Quest 2

You can now seamlessly share links from Android phones to the headset via the Oculus Mobile App.

That means that you can search a site, ping it to your headset, and then have it in front of your eyes in a snap.

This will be great for sharing VR compatible experiences seamlessly, and it looks like iOS support is coming in the near future too.

We'll be back with you soon with all the latest VR news.
