We know that some of your favorite VR apps may have been created for Oculus Go or Gear VR. Here's what we're doing to bring those same apps to your Oculus Quest.
The apps in this section were originally designed for Oculus Go or Gear VR, but can now be used with Oculus Quest as well.
The apps listed here include any Oculus Go and Gear VR apps currently supported on Quest.
You can access your eligible Oculus Go and Gear VR apps from the Library tab in your Oculus Quest headset.
To access your Go or Gear VR apps on Quest:
Put on your Quest headset.
Press the Oculus button on your right controller to open your Universal Menu.
If you have compatible Go or Gear VR apps, you’ll see a device drop-down at the top next to Apps.
Select Go/Gear VR from the device drop-down.
Choose the app you want to install on your Quest by selecting it.
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:
Navigate to the Oculus store online, or through the Oculus mobile app.
Browse either the Go or Gear VR sections of the Oculus store for any apps listed on the compatible apps list.
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’re a Quest owner and you purchased a paid version of the Oculus Go or Gear VR apps listed below before September 25th, 2019, you may be eligible to upgrade to a Quest version for free. Free upgrades will run until Dec 31st, 2019 and will begin the week of September, 30th 2019.
The following apps support free upgrades on Quest:
Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes
Virtual Virtual Reality
VR Karts: Sprint

To get your free upgrades:
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.
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.
