Virtual Desktop isn’t a game per se, but it’s a VR experience that many people are after. The app enables you to access your Windows PC and anything you have installed on it from within your VR headset.
Virtual Desktop enables you to do your everyday computing tasks, such as browse the web, edit documents, watch a movie on Netflix, or kill some time on YouTube on a giant virtualized screen inside your VR headset. When Virtual Desktop first launched in March 2016, it was the first to offer such a feature set. However, we’re surprised to see Virtual Desktop hit the best seller’s list in 2018 because there isn’t much need for it anymore. Every VR platform, including Steam VR, Oculus Home and Windows Mixed Reality, offers its own way to access standard applications and documents in VR, which makes Virtual Desktop somewhat redundant.
Nevertheless, Virtual Desktop was one of the top 24 most sold VR titles on Steam VR in the first half of 2018.
