When I got my Quest I tried the VR Alpha and was disappointed. The connection was a buggy lottery and even when it did connect the terrible vomit inducing jitter made it unusable. I guess I wasn’t expecting it to be that Alpha.
Having tried the Beta, it works flawlessly! I can pop my Quest on and be in Steam VR just by opening the app. If you have a Quest (and a strong internet connection) Shadow gives you wireless PC quality VR.
The only thing missing now is Xbox controller support for games that need it.
