Virtual Desktop with steam VR support !
Remove the ban for Virtual Desktops steam VR WiFi support ! This feature is the best feature since the launch of the Quest and WE WANT IT !
Thank you for this submission. As mentioned by Jason Rubin on Twitter (https://twitter.com/Jason_Rubin/status/1139645545713041408) , we asked to have the update containing this feature rolled back. We accept experiences vary, but in our testing we found that this feature compromised comfort, safety, and quality to different levels for various people. Our developer strategy team will continue to evaluate all apps and features to ensure the best possible user experience for all.
Thanks for helping me to decide that the Reverb G2 is going to be my next purchase.

Why not be honest and say you wanna sell some LINK?
>3.000 Useres are fine with comfort, safety and quality, but there's no money in Virtual Desktop steaming with an 80$ cable standing besides..
"his feature compromised comfort, safety, and quality to different levels for various people. " Shouldn't it be up to us to decide? I do not believe this response is truthful.
Bring it back. Every single person who plays VR signs a waiver about comfort and safety. More than that, having the cable to play PC VR games is nice, but if you play Steam VR wired, it's more dangerous, not less, than playing them wirelessly. This is simple greed, with Oculus wanting everyone to buy games through their own store to play them wirelessly. Nothing more.
Please enable this support.

I'm pretty bummed the wireless access to Steam got pulled, all I wanted was to play Skyrim wirelessly out in my covered courtyard as the inside of my house is too tiny to play anything safely without smashing things. Now I can't play the one game I really wanted and I'm absolutely crushed. :(
I make a point to purchase most of my games through the oculus store to support the devs but some games will never be possible to run directly on the Quest such as Skyrim.
The fully wireless option was why I purchased the Quest in the first place so if I'd known this was going to happen I probably wouldn't have bothered. I mean do you really expect me to drag my entire PC outside with me every time just so I can plug in the cable when I could just play wirelessly with perfect freedom?
PLEASE allow Steam support again.
Interesting that you have blocked votes so that no one can know how popular this is. Even you.
Sorry admin, This is a lie. I have purchased two Oculus Rift sets and was considering two more Oculus systems. In my system I use both Steam and Oculus for my content. I sign a waiver for comfort and safety. As for quality, if you made Kindles and banned books because of "quality" you would soon have an uprising. It is fine to not publish books your platform, but to ban them because you do not approve of quality is pure and simple wrong. Your only reason for this is pure and simple to have a captive audience for your software sales which is also wrong and similar things have been deemed illegal in other hardware platforms.

I'd love to buy an oculous quest but I might have to consider the HTC vive instead.
What a poor excuse for obvious greed. Steam VR is a great platform with huge VR content, not letting us access to it so that you can charge me again for content I have already purchased through Steam is pure greed...
Adding a vote.
It is at your own risk that you use it. A great feature was lost.
We are grownups, we do not need kindergarden level of protection but this really sound like it all being aboute ste store, nothing else.
Oculus could have at least allowed the marketing department help with the bad response...

This is still a mistake, a user acknowledgement should suffice we're all adults here.
If i am unable to stream the VR games I already own on Steam then i shall simply refund the Quest and buy from your competitor as they will allow me to do this and I would imagine I am not the only person to do this.

Was going to buy Quest for my kid until I found out about this. Lemme know when I can use the quest for Steam VR....
Wish I would have seen this before I bought my quest. If you have a product then great. You don't. Let us have this while you figure out how to complete your product that has been released for almost 6 months?
The quest is AWESOME gear. Very disappointing that I have to re-buy ALOT of software (even stuff I bought from the store) and I feel especially targeted by having my steam games investment be destroyed.
I'm holding off on purchasing until this is clarified. I'd use the Quest with its native games when out and about and to show off for friends etc. but at home I'd like to be able to use my PC's superior graphics hardware! Why not? Embrace this idea Occulus/Facebook!
Ya, I was super excited for this feature. Waiting to buy a Quest until it can stream PC VR.
I was going to buy a Quest, but after hearing this news I have changed my mind. I will no longer do business with Oculus, seeing as how they've revealed their restrictive, anti-competitive colors. I will be warning my friends and family about the nature of this company as well.
