You know those pop-up windows that show up on your computer every time a program or an app needs to be updated? You love those updates, right?
Let’s face it, no one does. However, unfortunately, these updates are necessary because your system won’t work as well as it should with new software if it isn’t up-to-date.

How to update your Oculus Go
The Oculus Go was designed to create the most enjoyable and seamless user experience possible, and to do that the headset needs to update automatically whenever updates are available. Oculus doesn’t want to bother its users with the update process, so it handles them automatically. The only thing the user needs to do is create the right environment for it to update itself.
When you are finished using your headset, ensure that it is connected to Wi-Fi and a power outlet. Set it aside in standby mode, and if updates are available, it will install them by itself.
To check which operating system your headset is currently using, use your remote to navigate to “Settings” and then “See All,” or “Show All,” depending on your device. Select “Device” in the left menu. Check the information displayed in this section and compare it to the latest Oculus operating system listed online.
