      technotic this is NOT anything like virtual desktop. virtual desktop does offer a personal desktop stream to your headset, but primarily it is used for, along with vridge and alvr, for playing PC VR games wirelessly on your Oculus Quest headset. Bigscreen is a desktop sharing app that allows you to create a virtual room and share your desktop with multiple friends. the only thing they have in common is that they both involve the oculus quest

      ALVR streams VR display output from your PC to Gear VR / Oculus Go via Wi-Fi. This is similar to Riftcat or Trinus VR, but our purpose is optimization for Gear VR. ALVR provides smooth head-tracking compared to other apps in a Wi-Fi environment using Asynchronous Timewarp.
