Manage your Oculus VR device with this app
Oculus is a gaming utility software from Facebook Technologies that acts as a companion to your Oculus devices. With this, you can manage all your devices, explore apps in the Oculus Store, and discover live VR events. You can also use the app to connect with your friends and enjoy the VR experience together. Note, however, that the app requires Android 5.0 and higher for you to enjoy all its features and avoid any issues during setup.
What can you do with Oculus mobile app?
With the Oculus mobile app, users of Oculus virtual reality headsets can now manage their devices through their mobile phones. You can monitor your devices and even customize the settings. More than that, you can browse and manage your VR apps without downloading a separate app. The app also allows its users to set up their Oculus Quest or Oculus Go and even cast your VR experience to your phone or any other Chromecast-enabled device.
Aside from management tools, the app also connects to the Oculus Store. With this, you can browse and explore more than 1,000 VR games directly from your phone. Not only that, but you can also buy, download, and even remotely install these VR games. Furthermore, you can enable notifications for sales and upcoming releases so you won’t be left out. You can also use the mobile app to reserve your virtual seat for live events, sports, and concerts.
As noted, the app works best with Android 5.0 and higher. Installing it on older models may cause an issue when you are setting up your device. It also needs to be connected to Wi-Fi and Bluetooth while you set up. Users would also find the app a little slow to respond whenever you tap any of the options. Finally, the app sometimes forces users to link to their Facebook account before they can launch the homepage.
Convenient if not for its drawbacks
All in all, the Oculus mobile app is a convenient tool to have if you own any Oculus VR device. Customizing settings can be a lot easier with the app. More, it offers easy access to games and even events and sales. However, the app comes with lots of issues that can be a deal-breaker for users. It also doesn’t help that the developers are notorious for their slow response and action.
