Game closing whenever you get an OVR Toolkit update? Disable 'Game Theatre' in the Steam desktop client settings!


  • Added timeline bar to Media Controls, shows song length and progress from supported media players. (Spotify)
  • Added icon gathering to Media Controls, OVR Toolkit will try to find the application icon for the current media source.
  • Added 'LocalCustomApps' folder to install directory, will be used for creating web apps and for local-only web apps.
  • Added support for local web files to Custom Apps. ('html' directory in the Custom App's folder)
  • Added file extensions whitelist when uploading Custom Apps. (Safety third, right...?)
  • Added 'permissions.json' for Custom Apps to allow the developer to specify which API calls they need access to. (User will accept this on first launch)


  • Added a 0.5 second delay that blocks you clicking keyboard controls after pressing a keyboard key. (To avoid accidental resizing/closing)
  • CPU and GPU performance improvements.

Bug fixes:

  • Potential fix for old installations that still have the Task Scheduler entry set to run at Windows user logon.
  • Staggered opening of windows to hopefully prevent a crash on first window toggle.
  • UWP Bridge should now clear notifications after sending them to the main application. (Avoids the same notification re-appearing if it doesn't timeout automatically)- Added a check for if OVR Toolkit's task is set to run at user logon. (Will attempt to remove it)- Fixed a UWP Bridge process crash.
  • Fixed re-centered windows in seated play games becoming out of place when re-centering in-game view.
  • Fixed a bug with the report bug button. (This is honestly my favourite changelog entry so far I think!)
