Our latest update is packed with improvements: a better way to experience WebXR on Quest, broader support for remote screen streaming and more!
Launch WebXR links in Wolvic Browser (Quest)
WebXR enables users to access immersive content through internet browsers. By default, devices open WebXR links using their built-in web browser. With this update, we're giving you easy access to an excellent alternative browser: Wolvic.
On Meta Quest devices, you can now use Wolvic as the default browser for WebXR links. Wolvic is an awesome, open source web browser. Wolvic browser is easy to use, reliable, and built for XR.
Go to Configuration > WebXR Links to set Wolvic as your Default Browser for WebXR. Selecting Wolvic will automatically install the browser app on your devices. Then, your devices will use Wolvic to open all WebXR links
3 reasons to use Wolvic instead of the native Quest browser
1. With Quest Firmware v55, the native device web browser is unreliable; choose Wolvic for a stable WebXR experience
To prepare for new firmware releases, we routinely test existing functionality. When testing Meta Quest firmware v55, we experienced issues launching WebXR links with the native browser. Specifically, devices on firmware v55 may intermittently crash when opening WebXR links with the built-in Quest web browser.
Wolvic browser offers a stable and smooth alternative. Avoid unwanted interruptions and maximize high impact time in XR with a browser you can count on.
2. You can restrict users from browsing the web with Wolvic (No Search)
You can lock users into a single WebXR link and block them from surfing the web by selecting Wolvic (No Search) on your configuration. When users open any WebXR link from your custom VR Home Screen, it will launch in a safe, simple, and focused window.
EASY TO USE
3. Wolvic is built for XR
Wolvic makes using WebXR easier. Beyond providing better stability, Wolvic has a delightfully simple interface. For example, you can:
Quickly adjust browser size, brightness, and toggle passthrough
Use controller shortcuts to get Youtube VR links into 360 mode faster
Adjust language and translation settings

Remote streaming on all non-Quest devices
Device screen streaming allows you to see what's happening inside your devices from anywhere in the world. Streaming first became available on Pico devices. Now, you can remotely stream any non-Quest device on ManageXR (Pico, Vive, DPVR, Magic Leap, Vuzix, and more!)
Like many of you, we're eager to add support for remote streaming on Quest devices. Once Meta makes this functionality available to MDMs, you'll have it
