Your Oculus Touch controllers are a pair of tracked controllers that give you hand presence—the feeling that your virtual hands are actually your own. Touch controllers feature traditional action buttons, thumb-sticks and analog triggers that add familiarity to new experiences.

To pair your controllers for the first time:

  1. Open the Oculus app on your mobile device.

  2. Insert the included battery into your controller, then tap continue on the Oculus app.

  3. Tap Controllers then tap Left or Right to choose which hand you’d like to pair.

  4. Press and hold the oculus icon and buttons on your right controller or and on your left controller until the controller LED blinks and then lights up to finalize the pairing.

Once you've paired your controllers, they will automatically connect to your headset each time you turn it on, if it's nearby.

To unpair your controllers:

  1. Open the Oculus app on your phone.

  2. Tap Settings from the bottom menu.

  3. Tap the Quest 2 or Quest headset you currently have paired.

  4. Tap Controllers, then tap the controller that you want to unpair.

  5. Tap Unpair Controller.

Once your controller is paired, you can use your controller to interact with apps and games, using the buttons on your controller to do the following:

  • Trigger and buttons: Press to select.

  • and : Press to go back to the previous screen or menu.

  • oculus icon: Press to go back to Oculus Home or press and hold to reset your controller orientation.

  • : Press the menu button from your home environment to bring up the menu.

Note: Individual apps may include their own tutorials for how to use the buttons on your Oculus Touch controllers in each VR experience.
