Oculus Quest


At the time of purchase the Oculus Quest it was not required to own a facebook account. Meanwhile it's - unfortunatelly - required to have one. Since that decision were made some may cry and remember to promises made by Oculus founder Palmer Luckey. But all I found was a guarantee on reddit only related to Oculus Rift. Beside of that, facebook changed the game and theres nothing to add.

First steps

Install the Oculus smartphone app and pair the device via bluetooth.

Developer mode

The Oculus Quest provides a developer mode for developing applications. To enable the developer mode browse to Oculus Dashboard and create a new organization.

facebook's NDA is a nightmare. Think about it.

Open the app, select the Oculus Quest, go to settings and enable "Developer mode"

In some place of the agreements there was a note about potential account locking based on non-defined activities. As for now I'm pretty not sure what may end in a account lock and how they're monitoring such things. Maybe it's only related to online activities like cheating. Maybe it's based on an stuff you wrote that becomes popular.
