Charge the headset

You’ll first need to charge the headset. Plug the charging cord into your Quest 2 headset and a power source to begin charging it. The charging indicator turns green once it's fully charged.

The Oculus Quest 2 charge time is approximately 2.5 hours from zero per cent to full battery. It is safe to use the Oculus Quest 2 while charging. In case your Quest 2 is slow charging, we have some tips to speed it up in the linked article.

Adjust your headset fit and view

Next, turn it on and adjust your headset. You'll want to gently adjust the lenses by shifting them left, and then right until they click into the position that allows you to see what's on the screen most clearly. Afterwards, adjust the side straps by moving the two sliders on either side of the top strap.

If you're wearing glasses, make sure to insert the glasses spacer. When you're ready to put the headset on, put it on from the front to the back. You can fine-tune your headset fit and clarity by gently moving the firm arms on either side of your Quest 2 up and down to adjust the angle of the headset against your face.

Download the Meta Quest mobile app and create your account

Once your headset is adjusted, download the Meta Quest mobile app. If you're new to Meta Quest, a Meta account is required to use your device, apps and the app store. You’ll be asked to create a Meta account on the first screen of the device setup process in the Meta Quest mobile app.

Follow the instructions in-VR and in the Meta Quest mobile app to complete the setup process.
