What is Immersed VR?
Immersive is an immersive productivity and meeting app for the Oculus Quest platform.
Immersive combines the power of virtual realities with the power of your computer, merging them together into one powerful tool for working.
Who is Immersed For?
Immersed is a platform looking to turn your Oculus Quest VR HMD into your daily computing device. As such, Immersed is for anyone interested in doing computer-based work inside virtual reality.
What Does Immersed Run On?
You can install the app on any operating system (Windows, macOS, or Linux) and use a combination of real and VR monitors from within your Oculus Go.
Immersed is one of the few VR productivity apps available for both Windows and Mac computers.
You need both the computer and the Oculus Go to be connected to the same local Wi-Fi connection so they can see each other.
What Are the Features of Immersed?
Immersive accommodated both inputs using either the Oculus Touch Controllers or by having the user’s hands tracked. Most users would still need to use a computer keyboard and mouse for their primary interaction.
Immersed allows users to visually see their virtual hands typing on their virtual keyboards, which are perfectly synchronized with the positions of the physical keyboards.
It uses a combination of mapping the computer’s physical keys into virtual keys, along with its own internal tracking capabilities.
Immersive has even created an app for iOS devices that allows them to be immersed in VR with you.
Immersive lets you choose from a variety of virtual environments where you can experience your session.
You can be in
- a spaceship circumnavigating the Earth
- in a cave with a waterfall running through it
- in a lively Coffee House with jazz music in the background
- in the Immersed Café
- a large, open setting best experienced with friends or colleagues
- other Immersed users who can share the public spaces.
Immersed does accommodate meetings and collaboration where you can meet in private in the space of your choice as well as share your screens.
Here are just some of Immersive’s key capabilities. It’s exciting to see where it will go next.

- Currently, Linux only allows for external monitors to be connected via USB ports.
What Mac OS versions are supported?

Immersed supports 64 bit Ubuntu 16.04+ Linux distributions. Raspberry Pi is currently not supported by Immersed but we’re working on adding support for it.
How do I download the Desktop Agent / Streamer app to each of my computers?
On your VR device, open the Immersive VR application, then go to the Computer menu and select “Pairing Code.” Enter your e-mail address to get a code for each computer you’d like to pair to.
Open the next email on the computer you wish to connect to.
Why can’t I connect to Immersed?
Make sure that you’re connected to the same network for both your VR headset and your computer.
Make sure that you aren’t blocked by firewalls, proxies, or virtual machines because they could be interfering with your connection.
Make sure that your drivers are up to date on your computer.
My VR app tells me that I need to update to the latest version before I can continue.
Make sure that your VR application and the desktop client are running the most recent version available.
If this issue still persists, uninstall and then re-install your VR app.
How can I get multiple monitors in VR?
You can use virtual desktop environments (VDEs) on Windows PCs and Mac computers, external monitor plug-ins, or headless display emulator software. For more information, read our guide here.
Why do I get a black screen when trying to watch Netflix, Hulu, or another streaming service?
Some websites use digital rights management (DRM) technology that prevents them from being recorded by screen capture software. Using Firefox removes this limitation.
Why do I get a green screen when trying to use the webcam feature?
If your Oculus avatar isn’t properly configured, go back into the Oculus Home settings menu and reset your avatar, and then restart the Immersive VR app and your PC.
