Install VR Tourviewer on Oculus Quest with SideQuest

VR Tourviewer is now also available for the Oculus Quest!

You can get it here: Download VR Tourviewer for Quest

The app isn’t available in the Oculus Store/Library yet, so to install it, you have to ‘side load’ it to your Oculus Quest. This can be done using SideQuest. This is a bit technical, so if you have any questions about this process, please post them on the forum. There’s no estimate yet if and when VR Tourviewer will be available for Quest through the Oculus Store. 

First Time Setup

Enable Developer Mode

Put the headset in developer mode to be able to sideload to it. To do this, you have to be a registered “developer”. This process is free.

Go to dashboard.oculus.com on your PC and create an ‘organization’. You’ll be asked to accept the developer agreement.

Now that you’re a “developer”, open the Oculus app on your smartphone or tablet. Make sure you have enabled Wifi, location and Bluetooth so the Oculus app can find your Quest headset. In the Settings tab, tap on the  headset and tap ‘More settings’. In the list, you should now see Developer Mode. If you don’t see developer mode, try rebooting your phone and the headset. Enable Developer Mode.

How To Launch VR TOURVIEWER

When you put on your headset, you should see a new section in your Library called Unknown Sources. This will contain the VR Tourviewer (com.vrtourviewer.vrtourviewer) app and any other VR apps you installed using SideQuest or with ADB. Click it to start the app. If you don’t see ‘Unknown Sources’ after a successful installation of the VR Tourviewer app, please reboot the Quest. The section ‘Unknown Sources’ should now show in your Oculus Library.
