The Passthrough feature was originally designed to create the Guardian Network that links your virtual gaming environment to real space. To this end, Quest 2 transmits the image from the tracking cameras to the VR headset screen.
Meta introduced more features with later updates. For example, if you double-tap the VR headset case, you’ll see a live feed of your real environment. Meanwhile, Passthrough also makes it possible to integrate a real desk, keyboard or sofa into virtual reality, making the augmented reality mode increasingly important.
Play Stored 3D Video
There aren’t many video apps that let you download a 3D movie and play it on any device you choose.
This means that most of the videos you see in Rift are either 3D home videos or from a slightly illegal source.
Can you play Oculus games on Samsung Gear VR?

So what is SBS (side by side) and OU, Half-OU or top-bottom 3D and how to play them on OculusGear VR?
The whole concept of 3D is to show an image to each of your eyes separately, and since you have 2 (I mean eyes), you have two images displayed on the screen simultaneously. Without special glasses and reading device, two separate images would still be two separate images to you, but once you wear special 3D glasses, each eye would only see one image and view the dimensional video.
SBS’s 3D technology provides two images displayed side by side: side by side is what’s behind SBS. OR 3D or sometimes Half-OR 3D stands for over-under, the technology when one frame is up and the second is down. They are essentially the same technology, although some devices may not play both and can only play SBS or OR 3D.
