The results of the code indicate new features for Meta Quest 2 and Horizon Workrooms, as well as a stylus for Cambria controllers.

The lines were found and posted by a Twitter user named NyaVR. NyaVR found a code in the Oculus smartphone app that suggests official Discord support. According to the strings, users may have the ability to share their gaming activities in Discord and search for what others are playing in Discord.

It’s unclear how far the Discord integration will go. NyaVR recalls that Oculus employees asked Reddit users about their use of Discord a few months ago. Discord can be transferred to the VR headset as a 2D app and used in VR. An official Discord integration could simplify installation and improve the user experience by connecting Quest users with the rest of the gaming community.

Meetings of large workshops

NyaVR also found suggestions on two new modes for Meta’s Horizon Workrooms meeting app. An unspecified “breakout mode” and a mode it supports larger conferences with numerous participants. Currently, up to 16 VR avatars can meet in Workroom.

NyaVR also discovered the code that confirms the rumors of a stylus attachment for Cambria controller. In July, VR leaker Brad Lynch revealed numerous technical details of the new input devices, which may be compatible with Meta Quest 2 and sold separately.

The controllers could support special accessories, such as stylus tips, Lynch said. A new pressure sensor at the tip of the handle could provide more realistic drawing and writing in virtual reality.

By holding the Quest controllers upside down, the tip of the handle can be used for drawing on whiteboards, whiteboards or tablets in work rooms. According to Nya’s findings, a accessory stylus called Olympus it could be included in the Cambria Project.

Finally, NyaVR uncovered clues to two new Messenger features called “Smart Reply” and “Smart Dial”, which could offer pre-written replies or auto-complete sentences when composing a message, as known from Gmail. Since typing in VR is quite boring, such a typing aid would be very welcome.
