    The future of VR?

Easier ways to distribute apps outside of the Oculus Store.

In early 2021 we’ll offer a new way for developers to distribute Quest apps.

This will enable developers to share their apps to anyone with a Quest, without having to be accepted into the Oculus Store, and without the need for sideloading.

Sideloading
    A term used mostly on the Internet,
    similar to "upload" and "download", but in
    reference to the process of transferring
    files between two local devices, in
    particular between a computer and a mobile
    device such as a mobile phone, smartphone,
    PDA, etc.

    Typically refers to media file transfer to
    a mobile device via USB, Bluetooth, WiFi
    or by writing to a memory card for
    insertion into the mobile device.

    When referring to Android apps,
    "sideloading" typically means installing
    an application package in APK format onto
    an Android device.
