Add tours on Oculus Go storage

First run VR Tourviewer at least once, so the ‘VRTourviewer’ folder can be created on your device.

For Windows:

  • Connect your Oculus Go to your PC with a micro USB cable.
  • In your headset, you will have to give your PC permission to gain access. Select Allow Access to Data.
  • Once you are connected to your PC, the Autoplay feature should open. If it does, select Open Device to View Files.
  • If Autoplay does not start, you can manually browse to Oculus Go Storage through File Explorer. It will be named VR-Headset.
  • Once you have your VR-Headset open, select Internal Shared Storage.
  • Open the folder named VRTourviewer.
  • You can now drag and drop (or copy and paste) your tours directly into this folder

For MacOs:

  • Download the File Transfer Tool from Android and install it on your Mac.
  • Connect your Oculus Go to your Mac with a micro USB cable.
  • Open the File Transfer Tool you just installed.
  • In your headset, you will have to give your computer permission to gain access. Select Allow Access to Data.
  • A folder named VR-Headset should automatically open
  • Now open the folder called VRTourviewer.
  • You can now drag and drop (or copy and paste) your tours directly into this folder.

If the VRTourviewer folder doesn’t exist on the Oculus Go, then it’s possible that the app doesn’t have read/write permissions for storage. To enable this: wear the Oculus Go and go to the Oculus Library. Find the tile/preview image of the VR Tourviewer app and click the three dots … at the lower right of the image, and click ‘Permissions’. Then enable the ‘Storage’ permission and restart the VR Tourviewer app.

Note: make sure to use the original Oculus Go USB cable, or an USB data cable. A USB charging cable doesn’t always have data wiring.
