How to update your Oculus Quest headset in 2 different ways

OculusIt’s easy to update your Oculus Quest.

The Oculus Quest receives updates often, and many of these updates include brand new features. But in order to ensure you’re receiving these new features, you need to make sure that your Oculus Quest is updating.

You can set your Oculus Quest to update automatically, or if you’re running version 9.0 or later, you can look for updates manually in the Settings menu on the headset, so you can always be sure you’re using the newest software available.

Here’s how to set up both.
