Your Oculus Go needs to be connected to a private or public WiFi network to use and access most features and content for your Oculus Go. You will be prompted to choose your WiFi network during the setup process.

If you receive an error while trying to connect to WiFi, you may need to connect your Oculus Go to another WiFi network. Networks that use Captive Portals will not work with Oculus Go setup.

To change the WiFi network your Oculus Go is connected to from your phone:

  1. Turn on your Oculus Go and open the Oculus app on your phone.
  2. Tap Settings from the bottom menu.
  3. Tap the headset that you are currently using.
  4. Tap WiFi.
  5. Tap the new WiFi network you’d like to connect to and enter the password, if prompted.

Note: A captive portal is a web page that prompts you to interact with it before connecting you to the internet. Captive portals are commonly used by public WiFi networks in businesses, airports, hotels, and other venues that offer free WiFi hotspots. This type of network will not work to set up your Oculus Go, but may work after your initial setup.
