Meta Quest Is Getting a New Travel Mode. Here’s What It Does

    Meta is making its Quest 2 and 3 virtual reality headsets more travel-friendly, introducing a new Travel Mode for both models.

    In a blog post, Meta stated that Travel Mode is an experimental feature on Quest 2 and 3 headsets. To enable the function, users must first navigate to their headset’s settings and then to the Experimental Features area.

    As one might expect from an experimental feature, Meta admits that Travel Mode is presently “optimized for use on planes,” but it intends to expand support for other types of transit, such as trains. Any program or video game that requires internet access, such as Xbox Cloud Gaming or Rec Room, requires the user to connect to the plane’s Wi-Fi. More curiously, Meta observes that if you use your headphones before activating Travel Mode, the gadget may automatically recognize that you are on a plane. It is advised that you enable Travel Mode before using.

    As UploadVR previously said, anyone who wanted to use their Meta Quest VR headset on a flight had to disable positional tracking.

    While the notion may appear ludicrous to some, using Travel Mode on a VR headset, particularly the Meta Quest, isn’t so farfetched. The Meta Quest 2 and 3 specifically have native apps for streaming and video services like as Netflix, Peacock, and YouTube, as well as an ever-expanding collection of VR games that are routinely published on both devices and do not need a lot of movement, such as Real VR Fishing and Moss: Book 2.

    Travel Mode may seem familiar, as it was previously available in Apple’s high-end spatial computer, the Vision Pro, announced earlier this year. In recent months, Meta has been adding additional functions to its VR headset that were previously available on Vision Pro. In addition, Meta has incorporated Vision Pro-inspired capabilities to the Quest series, such as Laying Down Mode.

    Meta Quest 2 and Quest 3 owners may enable Travel Mode by going to the “Experimental features” section in the Settings app. Once activated, Travel Mode is easily accessed through the Quick Settings menu.

    In addition, Meta claims to have collaborated with Lufthansa on a new relationship in which the airline would use Quest headphones for in-flight entertainment for passengers in the Lufthansa Allegris Business Class Suite.
