StreamVR’s latest update for windows is OpenXR., the standard that makes cross-platform AR and VR apps more common. The Khronos Group launched the OpenXR specification in 2019 to give developers a way to create a single app that can run on different devices across brands instead of having to create specific version for each of them. Valve explained its plans to transition to the OpenXR API in 2020 and made support available in SteamVR Beta at the same time.
SteamVR including support for the standard is a huge step forward for its adoption. The platform supports a lot of PC compatible heads, which means developers can reach a wider audience without having to build more apps.
They can also distribute their OpenXR apps made for SteamVR on other platforms that support the specification. As this time, the list of OpenXR-conformant platforms and devices include the Oculus Quest and Quest 2, Microsoft HoloLens 2, Windows Mixed Reality headsets and the VIVE Cosmos.
The latest Steam update also adds new settings that gives users more control over motion smoothing, automatic throttling and prediction behavior.
