If you'd like to use Oculus Link to connect your Quest to a PC, please start by reviewing the compatibility requirements.

Cable 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:

  • The USB 3 cable should be approximately 3 meters (10 feet) for an optimal and comfortable experience.
  • The charging cable that came with your Quest won't work with the Oculus link software. The Quest charging cable is USB 2 while Oculus Link requires a USB 3 cable that can support both power and data.

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.

North America | Canada | UK | Japan | Australia | Germany

NOTE: Many of the Anker listings on Amazon are sold out of the recommended cable size of 3 meters (10 feet).

Keep your eyes on the official Oculus blog for Oculus Link announcements. You can also sign up to be notified of availability on the Oculus Quest accessory page.

Software Requirements

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.
