Meta Quest Pro will soon support WiFi 6E | Engadget

It will soon start rolling out its latest Quest firmware, and there’s one particularly useful feature for owners. The company’s higher-end VR headsets are gaining WiFi 6E compatibility. So if you have a compatible router and a fast enough internet connection, your headphones will support speeds of up to 1.6 Gbps.

The faster downloads could prove useful for those trying out another new feature, which will be available on all models (except the first, unfortunately). After installing firmware v53, you will have the option to automatically update all your apps before the headset shuts down. this should help avoid having to wait for an app update when you pick up the headset again. However, this could only really be effective for the most passionate Quest users. If you tend to go a few weeks between VR sessions, you may still need to update apps when you put the headset back on. You can opt out of this feature from the shutdown dialog.

Elsewhere, there’s another tool to help parents and guardians manage what teens can access on the Quest browser. The Quest browser website category filter is self-explanatory. It can be used to block websites that fall into certain categories, such as gambling or hate and terrorism. Filters are tied to accounts, not devices, and can be set from the parental supervision tab in the Quest mobile app.

Speaking of the Meta Quest browser, it will be possible to watch Twitch there (unless a parent or guardian says otherwise). On top of that, Meta is moving some advanced camera settings he’s been testing from the Experimental Settings panel to the core camera settings. Finally, users will finally have the option to record video with stereo audio instead of just mono.
