How to Play Roblox on Meta (Oculus) Quest and Quest 2

Play Roblox in VR with Oculus Link

What to Know

  • Roblox isn’t available as a Quest or Quest 2 game, so you need to connect your headset to a PC using a link cable. 
  • Once you’re connected, you can enable VR from the Roblox setting menu.
  • If that doesn't work, install and run SteamVR to enable VR in Roblox.

This article explains how to play Roblox on the Meta (Oculus) Quest and Quest 2 virtual reality headsets. Since Roblox isn’t available as a Quest or Quest 2 game, you need a VR-ready PC and a link cable to connect the PC to your Quest.

Can You Play Roblox on Meta (Oculus) Quest?

You can play Roblox on Quest and Quest 2, but only with a workaround. Roblox isn’t automatically available in VR, so you need to use the headset in Oculus Link Mode. In this case, you connect the Quest to a PC with a link cable, a special kind of high-quality USB-C cable. You can use the official Quest link cable or any compatible third-party cord. Roblox runs on your PC, and the PC sends data to the Quest through the link cable, which allows you to play Roblox in virtual reality.

What if You Can’t Play Roblox in VR Mode?

If you have successfully linked your Quest or Quest 2 to your PC, and you’re playing Roblox in a virtual desktop mode on the headset, but you don’t see an option to enable VR, there are a handful of potential issues.

  • The world doesn’t support VR: Not all Roblox games support VR, and the ones that do might not support Quest headsets. If you don’t see the VR option in the in-game settings menu, try a different Roblox world.
  • You have an old or beta version of Roblox: Try uninstalling Roblox and downloading it again directly from the Roblox site. It may also help to install the app as an administrator if you have that ability.
  • You may need Steam VR: Try using your Quest with Steam VR. Link your Quest or Quest to your PC using the instructions provided above, but launch SteamVR before you perform step 15. Once Steam VR is running, you can launch the Roblox game of your choice, and it will automatically open on your Quest in VR mode.
