How To Play Oculus Go Games On Your Oculus Quest

Looking for how to play Oculus Go on your Quest? You’ve come to the right place.

Last week Facebook brought a selection of Oculus Go games to Oculus Quest. Quest and Go have different content libraries, meaning Facebook’s newest VR headset is missing some of the best mobile VR apps. But with last week’s update the company is starting to reverse that situation. If you’ve ever owned a Go or even Samsung’s Gear VR, there’s a good chance you have at least one or two games or apps that can be played on Quest.

So how can you play Oculus Go games and apps on your Oculus Quest? Read on to find out!

How Do I Install Go Games On Quest?

Buy Compatible Oculus Go Games And Apps

First off, a very important note: you cannot run any Oculus Go go Gear VR game on Quest. Only a select number of titles currently support the headset. Before buying any software to play on Quest, consult our list of compatible titles at the bottom of the page (or find them here).

Buying content is just a little tricky in its current form. You cannot buy Oculus Go games and directly from Quest. Instead, you’ll need to decide what Go games and apps you want from the list below. Then you need to buy them either from your Oculus companion app, on a web browser or inside Go itself. Note you do not need to own Go itself to buy Go games and apps.

Make Sure Your Quest Is Up To Date

Once you have some Go content that supports Quest (the full list is below), boot Quest up. Make sure that the headset is up to date (version 9 at least). To check this, go into the headset’s settings and press ‘See All’ then ‘About’. You should see the version number at the top.

If you’re on an earlier version, you’ll need to update. To do this, stick your headset on charge, leave it on standby (do not turn it off) and place it on a flat surface. Leave it for a while then check back to see if it’s updated. If not, keep repeating until it has. This is far from elegant, but update 9 adds in support for manual updates, so it’s the last time you’ll be doing it.

Find And Launch Your Go Games And Apps

Once you’re sure that you’re up to version 9, head into the Navigate section inside Quest and select Library. At the very top of the menu on the left you’ll see the Quest icon and name. Click that and you’ll see the ability to switch to Go/Gear VR. Press that.

Don’t panic if you don’t see any apps listed straight away; you need to head to the Not Installed tab. There you should see every Go game you own that can run on Quest. Simply download the ones you want to play and then head back to the Apps section to boot them up!

Do Oculus Go Games Support Quest Tracking?

As you may well know, Oculus Quest has more advanced tracking than Oculus Go. Go allows you to turn your head in any direction and point in VR by tilting a single controller. Quest lets you actually move your head through virtual space and has two controllers you can reach into worlds with too.

Only some of the Oculus Go games and apps on Quest support the full range of tracking. From what we’ve tested, Ustwo’s Land’s End lets you fully move your head through space. You couldn’t do that in the game before. Coatsink’s A Night Sky, meanwhile, fully supports both head and hand-tracking.

But not every game and app supports these features. Zombie shooter Death Horizon, for example, is just a straight conversion that plays exactly like it did on Go. We don’t have a full list of what does support full tracking and what doesn’t.

Can I Upgrade Some Of My Go Games To Their Quest Versions?

Pending a few important points, yes! Some games are available natively on both Go and Quest. If you owned the Go version of some of these titles ahead of this scheme’s announcement on September 25th 2019, you can upgrade to the Quest version for free provided you upgrade before December 31st 2019.

The full list of upgradable titles is below.
