What you need to know

  • Third-party VR app store SideQuest can now be viewed on Oculus Quest and Quest 2 headsets with a beta app.
  • Users who wanted to sideload games would require a PC or the SideQuest mobile app to install each game.
  • A PC or the mobile app is still required to enable sideloading, but is only necessary only one time after everything is set up.

SideQuest, the third-party app store for Oculus Quest virtual reality headsets, can now be accessed while wearing the VR headset instead of using a PC or the Android mobile app. SideQuest allows users to download VR apps and games that are not available on the main Quest Store through sideloading.

Before today, Meta Quest 2 users who wanted to try out new experiences like the recently released Shadow of the Colossus VR or unofficial VR ports of classic games would need to install the games via the platform’s website on a PC or the mobile app.
