Note: This guide assumes you already have an Oculus account, the latest version of the Oculus mobile app, and have already gone through the initial setup of your headset. https://www.oculus.com/setup/
To install the Zoe VR App, you must have a Zoe account. Individuals can create a free account to use the software for non-commercial projects. To use Zoe within a company or educational institution, you must own an Institution license that can be requested here.
Option 1: Automatic Install with Oculus AppLab
Once your Zoe account is created, log in on your mobile device’s browser and click on the
Open in Oculus App button located on this page. Accept the ‘Open in Oculus’ message.
Once in the Oculus App, Zoe’s page will be displayed. Click on the
Free button at the bottom, and Zoe will be added to your Oculus library. You can now install Zoe from your headset.
Option 2: Manual Install with SideQuest
In case you need to manually install Zoe with an .apk file (which might be the case with beta or custom builds), we recommend using the free software SideQuest; click here to download it for Windows or Mac. Connect the Oculus Quest to your computer (Important: If your Quest does not connect, you might need to accept file transfer in the headset).
Once your Oculus Quest is connected, click on the “Currently installed apps” icon at the top-right corner of the Sidequest window. Then, simply drag and drop the .apk file in that window: the install process should begin. Instead, you can also click on the “Install APK file from folder on computer” icon and select the .apk file.
Once installed, you can disconnect the headset from your computer.
