If you'd like to use Oculus Link to connect your Quest to a PC, please start by reviewing the compatibility requirements.
Oculus Link requires a high-quality USB 3 cable. We'll be releasing our Oculus Link cable later this year, but for the beta period we recommend looking for a high-quality USB C to C or USB A to C cable with proven performance.
Points to keep in mind:
Where can I buy a cable?
While quality can vary across cables, we've tested the Anker cable internally with good results. Click the appropriate link below to buy the Anker cable in your region.
NOTE: Many of the Anker listings on Amazon are sold out of the recommended cable size of 3 meters (10 feet).
We're using this beta period to continue to test and optimize the Oculus Link experience for PCs that meet the current recommended specifications for Oculus Rift and Rift S. The following table lists the current PC requirements for Oculus Link.

Note: We’re working directly with AMD to support as many of their cards as possible by the time the beta period ends.
To use Oculus Link, you need the Oculus PC app. Once you've downloaded the PC app, make sure that the Oculus PC software version is up to date and your Quest is running the latest operating system. More information on setup can be found in Setting up your Quest with Oculus Link.
