The Ultimate Guide to Sideload APKs on Oculus Quest 2 and Quest Pro


How to Download APKs on Quest 2




The Meta Quest 2 is a standalone VR headset that can run games and apps without a PC. However, the official Quest store has a limited selection of content, and you might want to try some apps or games that are not available there. This is where APKs come in handy.

What are APKs and why you might want to download them




APKs are Android package files that contain apps or games




The Quest 2 is an Android device at its core, so it can run any Android app or game that is compatible with its hardware and software. These apps or games are packaged as APK files, which are essentially ZIP files that contain all the necessary files and resources for the app or game to run.


APKs can be downloaded from unofficial sources to access content not available on the official Quest store




Some developers create apps or games for the Quest 2 that are not approved by Meta for various reasons, such as being experimental, unfinished, or violating some policies. These apps or games are not available on the official Quest store, but they can be downloaded from other websites or platforms, such as SideQuest, which is an alternative store for Quest apps. By downloading these APKs, you can access content that is not otherwise available on your Quest 2.


How to enable developer mode and install SideQuest




Developer mode allows you to sideload APKs onto your Quest 2




In order to download and install APKs onto your Quest 2, you need to enable developer mode on your headset. This is a setting that allows you to bypass some security restrictions and install apps or games from unknown sources. You also need a USB-C cable to connect your Quest 2 to your PC or Mac.


SideQuest is a platform that lets you browse and install APKs easily




SideQuest is a platform that lets you browse and install APKs easily. It has a website, a desktop app, and an in-headset app that you can use to find and download APKs for your Quest 2.
