Meta introduces an experimental travel mode for Quest 2 and Quest 3, initially supporting only airplanes.

The two Quest headsets can now be used normally on airplanes without any negative effect on the tracking. Meta writes that it tuned the algorithms to account for the motion of an airplane, so you should have a stable and consistent experience now, even when looking out the window. Something Apple Vision Pro still has problems with.

If there is Wi-Fi on the plane and a variety of movies and shows available, Quest should enable you to use a browser to access and view that content on a simulated screen. Additionally, you have the option to access the Quest app library and play virtual reality and mixed reality games.

At present, the travel mode is exclusively designed for optimal usage on airplanes. Meta intends to incorporate compatibility with other transportation methods, such as trains, in the future. There are potential plans to extend this support to cars and buses too.

In order to utilize Travel Mode, it is necessary to have system software update 65 installed and reboot the headset at least once. Afterward, you can activate the option in the Settings menu under Experimental Features. The Quick Settings will allow you to easily switch Travel Mode on or off. Please note that Travel Mode is only compatible with Quest 2 and Quest 3, it is not available for Quest Pro.

Partnership with Flughansa

Meta has recently formed a collaborative alliance with Lufthansa. In a statement, Meta stated:

“Together, we will equip certain flights for customers traveling in the new Lufthansa Allegris Business Class Suite with a range of tailored MR content focused on entertainment, travel, wellness, games, and more. All of this content is specifically designed to be compatible with Quest 3 in Travel Mode. Meta Business Partner will be responsible for creating the content and ensuring device setup, distribution, management, and technical support, in close collaboration with Meta and Lufthansa. This marks a significant moment for the industry as it will be the first time an airline offers access to Quest 3 headsets in a commercial in-flight setting.”
