Why Transfer Games to Oculus Quest 2?
Before we get started with the process, let’s take a look at some of the reasons why you might want to transfer games from your PC to your Oculus Quest 2.
One reason is that you may have bought a game on Steam or another PC gaming platform, and you want to be able to play it on your Oculus Quest 2.
Another reason is that some Oculus Quest 2 games are actually cheaper on the Oculus Store than they are on Steam or other PC platforms. So if you’re looking to save some money, transferring games from your PC can be a good way to do it.
Finally, there are some games that are only available on the Oculus Store and not on Steam or other PC platforms. So if you want to play one of those games, you’ll need to transfer it from your PC.
Now that we’ve looked at some of the reasons why you might want to transfer games from your PC to your Oculus Quest 2, let’s get started with the process.
How to do it?
Oculus Quest 2 is one of the best VR headsets out there, but it only supports certain types of games. So, if you want to play something that’s not on the Oculus Store, you’ll need to sideload it. Here’s how to do it.
First, you’ll need to enable developer mode on your Oculus Quest 2. To do this, go to Settings > Device > Developer Mode and turn it on.
Once that’s done, you’ll need to connect your Quest 2 to your PC using a USB cable. Then, open up the Oculus App on your PC and go to Settings > General and enable Unknown Sources. This will allow you to sideload apps onto your Quest 2.
Next, you’ll need to download ADB Drivers from the Oculus website. Once that’s done, unzip the file and open up the folder. Then, open a Command Prompt window and type in “adb devices” (without the quotes). This will show a list of all connected devices. If your Quest 2 is listed, then you’re good to go.
Now, you can download the games you want to sideload onto your PC. There are a few places you can get them from, but we recommend using SideQuestVR or Oculus VR Homebrew Website. Once you’ve downloaded the games, unzip them and put them into a folder on your PC.
Finally, open up a Command Prompt window and navigate to the folder where the games are located. Then type in “adb push [game name] /sdcard/Android/obb” (without the quotes) and hit Enter. This will install the game onto your Quest 2. Once it’s done, you can launch it from within the Oculus app on your PC or from within the Library tab on your Quest 2 headset.
Which Games are Compatible?
Not all Oculus Quest 2 games are compatible with the PC version. To find out which games are compatible, please consult the Oculus Quest 2 Compatibility List.
How to Move Games from PC to Oculus Quest 2
1. Connect your Oculus Quest 2 to your PC using a USB cable.
2. Open the Oculus app on your PC and click “Settings” in the left menu.
3. Click “Quest” and then select “More Settings” from the drop-down menu.
4. Select “Storage” and then click “Transfer Files from Oculus Quest 2 to Your PC”.

How to Check if a Game is Compatible?
To see if a game is compatible with your Oculus Quest 2, follow the steps below:
-Start the Oculus app on your PC.
-Click Settings in the left hand menu.
-Click the General tab.
-Under What games can I play?, select Rift compatible or Quest compatible.
-Games that are Rift compatible can be played on Oculus Quest 2 using the Oculus Link cable. Games that are Quest compatible can be played on Oculus Quest 2 without the need for a cable.
You can also check if a game is compatible by opening the game in the Oculus app, and then selecting More > Check Compatibility.
Why Some Games aren’t Compatible?
Oculus Quest 2 is not backwards compatible with Oculus Rift S or Quest content, meaning you can’t play those games on the new headset. Some older Oculus Rift titles will work with Quest 2, but not all of them. The reason for this is that Quest 2 uses a different chipset than its predecessors. The Qualcomm Snapdragon XR2 chipset is more powerful than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 used in the original Quest and Oculus Go, but it’s not as powerful as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 found in the Oculus Rift S.
If you’re having trouble moving your games over to your Oculus Quest 2, there are a few things you can try.
– First, make sure that your Oculus Quest 2 is connected to your PC via USB.
– Next, launch the Oculus app on your PC and go to the Settings menu.
– Under the Devices tab, select your Oculus Quest 2 from the list of connected devices.
– Click the drop-down menu next to Quest 2 and select More Settings.
– In the new window that opens, select Gamingprivileges from the left sidebar.
– Click the button labeled Move Qualifying Games and Apps to this Device.
– A list of games that are eligible for transfer will appear. Select the ones you want to move over and click Move selected items.
