AirLink – Wireless Streaming comes to older devices

In April they brought us AirLink. AirLink allows you to stream PC VR games over their WiFi network instead of hooking up an Oculus Link cable – as long as your connection is strong of course. Now with v30, they’ve rolled out AirLink to the original Quest.
