The Meta Quest 2, commonly known as the Oculus Quest 2, features some great home environments. By default, users can access almost 12 of these home environments. However, there is a way to download custom home environments for the Oculus Quest 2 and Quest Pro.
These custom environments are made by designers and shared through the SideQuest app. However, using Sidequest requires an Oculus developer account to sideload apps on the Oculus Quest 2 and Quest Pro. Ensure the headset is updated to firmware version 35 and use the new standalone environment.
Original Oculus Quest owners can also download these custom environments by downloading the SideQuest app on their PC. For more information, check out our guide on installing the SideQuest app directly onto the VR headset.
Since there are hundreds of custom home environments, we have picked some of the most downloaded custom homes on the Sidequest library and some of our personal favorites.
