So what’s the use using sidequest wirelessly?

When you download any games and apps through sidequest typically you need to keep connected to your computer using a USB cable and while you’re connected you can’t use the main function that the Quest is built for which is using quest as a standalone VR headset.

STEP 2: Connect Your Headset Via USB

Now, Connect your Oculus Quest to your PC using a USB cable. After connecting, put on your Headset and two pop-ups will appear on your Quest.

  1. “Enable Oculus Link”, Click > Not Now
  2. Directly Afterwards, another prompt will pop up asking, If you to allow access your Data, Click > Allow

Allowing that prompt will connect your oculus quest to the Sidequest and you can see the “GREEN LIGHT” at the top left corner of your Sidequest application.

STEP 3: Click “Enable wireless” Located At The Top Of SideQuest.

STEP 5: Voila! Unplug The Headset And Use Sidequest Wirelessly!

If you’ve done all the steps correctly then Sidequest will show “Purple Light” instead of Red or Green. Which means that you’ve connected two android devices to your PC because your PC is connected to the same Oculus Quest Twice: Using USB and Wirelessly through WiFi

And to solve this little problem, just unplug the USB cable from your Quest and you can see that the Purple Light turned back to Green.

And Voila! Now you can install any Sidequest Games and Apps Wirelessly! Just navigate to the games page that you wanted to install and Click > Install Latest or Install To The Headset. And it’ll directly install those games through your PC to your Quest

You can also download those games within the Headset. Navigate through Sidequest website using the internet browser, find the game and install it as you do on your PC

***Keep in mind that every time you close the Sidequest Application on your PC, you need re-connect your Quest every time via USB and turn on “Wireless Mode”.***
