The answer to this has to be YES. Yes, you can play Oculus Go games on the Oculus Quest headset, and if you are wondering how you can do that, then keep reading as we would discuss everything about it in this post.
The Oculus Quest VR headset is a recent release(2019), and the Oculus Go was released last year in May.
Now, both the headsets are standalone headsets, but the Oculus Quest has way better specs in comparison to that of the Go.
If you are someone who owned the Go, then you would have questions if you could play the games that you purchased for the Go on the Oculus Quest.
Well, you can play the games, and it is pretty easy to do so once you update your Oculus Quest software. If you are looking for a detailed explanation of how you can do so, then follow the guide below!
Can you play all Oculus Go games on the Quest?
NOt yet. There are Oculus Go games that are supported by the Oculus Quest, but not all of them.
Make sure that before you buy an Oculus Go title, it is compatible with the Quest.
You do not need to own the Oculus Go to buy games, and you can do it from the Oculus app.
If you already own some, then there would be no issues as all you have to do follow the steps below to get started with playing all the games on the Oculus Quest.
Make sure that your Oculus Quest is updated…
Before you get all excited to play games on the Oculus Quest, you have to make sure that the software updated to the latest version(version 9).
In the case it is not updated, then plug your headset on charging and leave it on standby so that your headset gets updated.
This can be a little annoying, but since manual update options are not yet there in the Oculus Quest, this is the only way to get the job done.
The latest version of the Oculus Quest software does have a manual update, so it is going to be worth it.
Once your software is updated, then follow the steps below to enjoy the Oculus Go games on the Quest.
How to play Oculus Go Games on Oculus Quest?
Once you have updated software, you need to go to the Oculus Quest home screen and click on Library.
On the top left of the screen, you are going to see Oculus Quest, and you need to click on it so that the drop-down menu opens up.
You can go to the Uninstalled section, and there you can see all the games and apps that you have bought and can run on the Oculus Quest.
Go ahead and download teh games and enjoy playing them on the Quest.
Oculus Quest Tracking
Something that can be a doubt to many is how it would be to play an Oculus Go game that came with 3DoF on Occulus Quest that comes with full 6DoF.
So, while you could turn your head around and point the Go controller in the Oculus Go headset, the Oculus Quest gives you more freedom to move around in the virtual environment and interact with objects.
The Oculus Go games do support the full Oculus Quest tracking, but it might be limited to a couple of games.
You can upgrade most of your Oculus Go games the Quest version for free before December 31, 2019.
I hope this answers most of the questions out there!
