Permit K830 to be used with Air Link
In v28 Oculus added the ability to pair a Logitech K830 keyboard to your Oculus Quest 2. When you pair your keyboard to your Quest 2, users see a 3D representation of their hands and keyboard within VR for easy text entry and system navigation while in the Quest 2 Home environment.
However when users initiate Air Link or Oculus Link the K830 disconnects and cannot be used for input. That means that users accessing their PC monitors through Air link or Oculus link are forced to use keyboard entry on a different VR keyboard by pointing at VR keys with the Quest 2 controllers rather than by typing on the K830.
Permitting users to continue to use the K830 for input on the Air Link menu would mean that users can enjoy use of all apps on their PC for productivity purposes by bringing up their monitors in Air link. That way users would not be limited to apps on the Quest 2 in terms of infinite office capabilities. They could access all apps on their PC while still enjoying the benefits of VR including easy repositioning and resizing of screens, working in a different part of the home where a Wifi connection back to the PC is still available etc.

This is an absolute disappointment from oculus and almost seems intentional.

I whole heartedly agree with this. I was using AirLink and wanted to try a couple things and while I could type with the K830 the mouse no longer worked which made several things difficult. I'm able to use AirLink just fine across my house from my PC. So being able to use the K830 inside AirLink would be amazing. It being touted as designed for the Quest 2 was part of the reason I got it and it's mostly been a disappointment since it doesn't seem to work in any app outside of Home really.
