What is SideQuest?
The Oculus Quest store does not allow developers and small teams to easily create and distribute content through it. It's very different from the Google Play or Apple App Store and much more comparable to the Playstation Store.
That's why the wonderful team at SideQuest are beloved by every independent VR producer!
They created SideQuest as a way for us to distribute our apps, allowing Oculus Go and Quest 1 & 2 users to easily install a wide range of applications.
To use SideQuest, all you need is a computer with Mac/Windows/Linux, and a cable to connect your Oculus Go/Quest to your machine.
The official Go cable is suitable and connects via USB A, which is standard on most PCs and laptops.
The official Quest cable is suitable, but only connects via USB C. Since USB C is relatively new, a lot of computers only have USB A ports, so you may need a new cable in order to use SideQuest. We recommend this USB C to USB A cable.
