Release notes: Oculus Software Update

Recommended Posts

You may have just seen an Oculus auto-update downloaded into your system ! As usual, no explanation was given, but for those who are curious, here it is!

Release Notes for Rift - Oculus App:


Here's what's changed in the Rift ecosystem recently.


Release 1.14

  • Features:Improved first experience for experimental 360° tracking.
  • The Oculus app now fully supports setting up three sensors for experimental 360° tracking.
  • Connecting a third sensor now automatically prompts you to set up experimental 360° tracking.
  • Improved efficiency when updating the Oculus software on your computer.

Oculus Touch:

  • You'll now see where your Touch controllers are located as soon as you enter VR.
  • Many apps, games, and experiences that previously required the Xbox One Wireless Controller can now be played using Touch controllers. These apps will use the buttons and triggers on Touch, but won’t support Touch controller tracking during gameplay. You’ll see supported apps marked “Touch (as gamepad)” in the Oculus Store. Windows 8.1+ required.


  • Fixed issue with sensor tracking setup, especially when setting up three sensors.
  • Fixed issue with app videos in the Oculus Store always starting at full volume.
