    Hello! I am new to Steam Link but when I installed it on my Quest Pro it asked for permission to access the face tracking and eye tracking sensors so I am pretty sure that Steam Link can send the data to my game.

    I am developing a virtual avatar game and would like to access the finger and face tracking from Steam Link so I can add face tracking and hand tracking.

    I am currently using the SteamVR plugin for Unity but I'm pretty sure it was not intended for Steam Link.

    Is there any documentation that shows how to access the face, eye and finger tracking on the Steam Link,

    Also I noticed while using Steam Link the HMD didn't switch to finger tracking, do I need to enable anything for finger tracking to work?

    I am really excited to develop my game using Steam Link but I just can't figure out how to access the advanced data I need for the avatar facecap and finger tracking.

    Can someone please help me clarify if this is even possible? Thanks!

    Steam Link does not expose hand or finger tracking unfortunately. I don't know about eye or face tracking.
    You can put a comment here to make Valve hear us, as it would be very easy for them to add hand tracking:
