No $80 Cable Needed: Oculus Quest Link Works Out of the Box!
Is the $80 Oculus Link cable obsolete? A stealth update in the Oculus Beta channel has enabled Link support for USB 2.0 cables, including the 3 meter charging cable bundled with the Oculus Quest! Performance is the same as with the fiber optic cable, and USB 2.0 extension cables work as well. Just opt in to the PTC (Public Test Channel) in Oculus software, restart, and you can start playing desktop VR games like Half-Life: Alyx on the Quest!
