If you don’t own any Oculus Go or Gear VR apps, you can still purchase or download apps from the compatible app list to use on your Quest.

To do this:

  1. Navigate to the Oculus store online, or through the Oculus mobile app.

  2. Browse either the Go or Gear VR sections of the Oculus store for any apps listed on the compatible apps list.

  3. Once you download a Go or Gear app that is compatible with Quest, you’ll be able to access the app from your Quest Apps in-VR.

Any Oculus Go or Gear VR app that’s supported works through an emulator that is designed to re-create a similar experience on Quest. While supported apps on Quest were built to mirror the original experience as closely as possible, there may be some performance difference between the different headsets.

If you already bought a Quest app that is eligible for a free upgrade, you'll receive Oculus Store credit in place of the free upgrade. You will only receive Oculus store credit if:

  • You purchased the Go or Gear VR version of an app listed here before September 25th 2019.

  • AND
  • You purchased the Quest version of that same app before September 25th 2019 under the same Oculus account.

If both of these conditions are met, you’ll automatically receive an Oculus store credit in your account. Everyone who is receiving Oculus store credit will be notified via email when the account credit is applied.
