How to use Oculus Quest 2 - instructions

Charging the headset:

To start charging, plug the charging cord into your Meta Quest headset and a power source. The charging indicator turns green once it's fully charged.

Download the Oculus mobile app and create your account:

A Facebook / Meta account is required to use your device, apps and the app store.

Adjusting your headset fit and view:

  • Gently adjust the lenses by shifting them left, then right until they click into the position that allows you to see what's on the screen most clearly.
  • Next, adjust the side straps. To do this, move the two sliders on either side of the top strap.
  • To loosen the side straps, move the sliders toward the top strap. To tighten the side straps, move the sliders away from the top strap.
  • After you move the sliders, re-center the top strap between the sliders so that the two sides are equal, and the top strap is centered on your head when you put the headset on.
  • Keep in mind, you'll need to remove the headset from your head to re-adjust the side straps with the sliders.
  • If you're wearing glasses, make sure to insert the glasses spacer. When you're ready to put the headset on, put it on from front to back.
  • Place the headset on your head, then remove it and make any additional adjustments to the side straps as needed.
  • Once you've got the side straps set, put your headset back on and adjust the top strap. You can adjust the top strap by pulling apart the velcro and re-attaching it so that your Meta Quest 2 rests lightly on your face and the picture is clear.
  • You can fine tune your headset fit and clarity by gently moving the firm arms on either side of your Meta Quest 2 up and down to adjust the angle of the headset against your face.

Once your headset is adjusted, follow the instructions in-VR and in the Oculus mobile app to complete the setup process.
