If you own an Oculus Quest 2, you’ll know that downloading and playing games on it is an absolute breeze. However, what happens when there’s an update available for a game you already own?

Well, updating your Oculus Quest 2 games is just as easy as downloading them in the first place. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process step-by-step.

Step 1: Turn on Your Oculus Quest 2

The first thing you need to do is turn on your Oculus Quest 2 headset. Make sure it’s properly charged and connected to Wi-Fi.

Step 2: Go to Your Library

Once your headset is turned on, put it on and navigate to your library. This is where all of the games and apps you’ve downloaded are stored.

Option A: Automatic Updates

Option A: If automatic updates are enabled for your games, any available updates will automatically download in the background while your headset is charging or idle. This means that when you go to play a game, it may already be updated without you even realizing it.

Option B: Manual Updates

Option B: If automatic updates aren’t enabled or if you want to manually check for updates, follow these steps:

  • Select the game that needs an update.
  • You should see a notification saying that an update is available.
  • Select “Update” to start downloading the latest version of the game.

Step 3: Wait for Download and Installation

Once you’ve selected “Update,” all you have to do is wait for the download and installation process to complete. The time it takes will depend on the size of the update and how fast your internet connection is.

Step 4: Launch the Updated Game

Once the update is complete, you can launch the game as usual. You’ll now have access to any new features, bug fixes, or improvements that come with the latest version.


Updating your Oculus Quest 2 games is a simple process that can be done in just a few steps. Whether you choose to enable automatic updates or prefer to manually check for updates, it’s essential to keep your games up-to-date to ensure that you’re getting the best possible experience.
