Oculus Home Voice search features

How well does Oculus Voice Search work?

The feature set is enough to enable you to quickly find a game rather than scroll through pages within your library. Certainly, this does speed up finding what you are looking for.
In most cases, it did understand me, except when I searched for "DeoVR" which is a VR video player. Instead, the software returned "Do VR"

The feature has been gradually rolling out to users and should be available to you now.
