A new package of apps in the Oculus Quest seems to indicate that the device can receive a function called “Oculus Assistant” in a future update.
The app appears in the IOS Quest v10 specified on the tab “Unknown sources” library for those who turned on the developer mode on your device. The package is called “Oculus Assistant Service” (com.oculus.assistant), as shown below.
At the moment you can open the package and it will ask permission to audio. If you allow the request, it opens a grey screen similar to the one pictured above, in the user interface of the Oculus Quest house that is completely empty, except for a small rotating loading circle. In the upper part of the window there is a header banner with the title “Assistent”test service.
Presumably, this pack is for part of the new system functions, which is currently being developed for the Quest. The name “Oculus Assistant” similar to other services voice commands and helpers such as Google Assistant, and we already know that Facebook is developing an AI assistant for their headsets . Given that the package of the test application also queries the audio resolution when you run, it is likely that this feature will become an assistant for Оculus Quest, which is controlled by voice commands.
Voice assistant goes well with the upcoming system update tracking fingers Quest — in a pair can just turn on the Quest and use their fingers and voice to control the device, controllers are not required.
