Oculus announced that its Rift SI version 1.26 has started rolling out to its Public Test channel, which is an opt-in pre-release version of the Oculus software for users to test ahead of the full public rollout.

Aside from the usual performance and stability improvements, the latest Rift SI version 1.26 now brings ‘Events’ to the Rift. This new feature allows users to discover and join public events that are taking place across the Oculus platform—such as multiplayer games and tournaments, social gatherings, tech talks, and more.

Below are the full change notes for the Rift SI version 1.26:


  • You can now discover public events on Rift, such as tournaments, social gatherings, and free weekends. Browse and subscribe to events via the Oculus desktop app. Once subscribed you’ll receive a desktop notification when it’s time to jump in and join the fun.
  • Developers can submit and schedule events for their apps and games through the Developer Dashboard.

Rift Core 2.0 Beta:

  • Added improvements to Oculus Desktop usability in Dash.


  • Graphics: improved performance across all applications.

Hosted events by Bigscreen, AltSpaceVRCatan VR, Eleven: Table Tennis, and Brass Tactics are just a few of the VR titles that will be showcased in Oculus Home for Rift users to participate in over the coming month.
