The Oculus Quest tracks your movements using built-in cameras, but sometimes it assumes the wrong orientation of a room. You can easily recenter your Oculus Quest by resetting its view. This is important for games in which you'll want to face a certain way like Beat Saber. It's also useful for if you need to rotate where you're facing without moving around too much.
