How Do I Update my Quest and Quest 2?

Meta (Oculus) Quest is designed to update itself using its built-in Wi-Fi connection, but that doesn’t mean the process always works as intended. If you suspect that your headset is out of date, you can check for updates and force an installation any time you want.

Note: You will need to wear the Quest headset to perform this procedure. Either read the procedure in its entirety ahead of time or get someone to read the instructions to you.

Here’s how to check for updates on Quest and install them if necessary:

Automatic Updates:

In many cases, the Oculus software is set to automatically check for updates and download them in the background when your device is connected to Wi-Fi and charging. However, you can manually check for updates using the steps above.

Oculus App:

You can also check for updates using the Oculus app on your smartphone. Open the app, go to the Devices tab, select your connected Oculus device, and look for the update option.
