Are you running out of space on your Oculus Quest and wondering if you can offload games? The answer is yes, you can! In this article, we will discuss how to offload games from your Oculus Quest and free up space for new games.

What does offloading mean?

Offloading a game means removing it from your device’s internal storage but keeping its data. This means that you can reinstall the game later without losing any of your progress or saved data.

Why should I offload games?

Offloading games is an excellent way to free up space on your Oculus Quest. The device has limited internal storage (either 64GB or 128GB depending on the version), and some VR games can take up a lot of space. By offloading games that you’re not currently playing, you can make room for new experiences.

How to offload a game on Oculus Quest

1. Turn on your Oculus Quest and put on the headset. 2. Navigate to the game you want to offload in the Library section. 3. Select the game by pointing at it with your controller. 4.

Press and hold down the side button on your controller until a menu appears. 5. Select “Manage” from the menu options. 6. Choose “Free Up Space” to remove the game from your device’s internal storage but keep its data. 7. You will see a confirmation message asking if you want to free up space – select “Free Up Space” again to confirm.

Note:

Some games may not have the “Free Up Space” option available in the Manage menu, meaning they cannot be offloaded.

How to reinstall an offloaded game

1. Navigate back to the Library section of your Oculus Quest. Scroll down until you see “Not Installed” and select it.

You will see a list of all the games you’ve offloaded. Choose the game you want to reinstall and select “Install”. The game will begin downloading, and you can track its progress in the Downloads section of your Library.

Conclusion

Offloading games from your Oculus Quest is a great way to free up space and make room for new experiences. By following the simple steps outlined above, you can easily offload games that you’re not currently playing and reinstall them later when you’re ready to pick up where you left off. So go ahead and start clearing some space on your device – there are plenty of amazing VR games waiting to be played!
