Eye Tracking on Meta Quest Pro
Meta Quest Pro is the first in our innovation line of VR headsets. It comes with inward facing sensors which enable the eye tracking feature. Eye tracking is used to make your avatar’s eye contact and facial expressions look more natural during your virtual interactions with other users and to improve the image quality within the area where you are looking in VR. Eye tracking may also be used as an input, meaning you can interact with virtual content based on where you’re looking. Eye tracking is not used to identify you. Eye tracking estimates the direction of where your eyes are looking, and images of your eyes never leave your headset and are deleted after processing. This means that neither Meta nor third-party apps can access these images.
Check out our Eye Tracking Privacy Notice or our white paper to learn more about how Meta built Eye Tracking into Meta Quest Pro with privacy in mind.
Eye tracking is off by default—you decide whether to turn it on.
In the Meta Quest Store, we also indicate which apps offer eye tracking, so you know before downloading them. The first time you open an app that supports this feature, you’ll be asked whether you want to turn it on, even if you’ve already enabled it on your headset. You’ll always be able to turn them off if you change your mind.
We’ve also made it easy for you to pause the feature at any time from the Quick Settings menu so that when you un-pause, you won’t have to go through setup again. All sensors on your Meta Quest Pro, including cameras and microphone, turn off automatically when your headset enters sleep mode.
