The Meta Quest 2 (formerly known as Oculus Quest 2) is a virtual reality (VR) headset created by Facebook Technologies, a division of Meta Platforms. It is the successor to the company's previous headset, the Oculus Quest. The Quest 2 was officially unveiled on September 16, 2020, during Facebook Connect 7.
The 64 GB release model was priced at US$299, a $100 decrease over the original Oculus Quest. In 2021, the 64 GB model of the Quest 2 was replaced by a 128 GB model at US$299, with the same price as the original 64 GB model.
As with its predecessor, the Quest 2 is capable of running as both a standalone headset with an internal, Android-based operating system, and with Oculus-compatible VR software running on a desktop computer when connected over USB or Wi-Fi. It is a refresh of the original Oculus Quest with a similar design, but with a lighter weight, updated internal specifications, a display with a higher refresh rate and per-eye resolution, and updated Oculus Touch controllers.
The Quest 2 received mostly positive reviews as an incremental update to the Quest, but some of its changes faced criticism, including its strap, reduced interpupillary distance (IPD) options, and a new requirement for users to log in with a Facebook account to use the headset and Oculus services.
