Is it possible to download and install an APK from a web link?

I want to give some Oculus Go headsets to some participants and give them a web link to download an APK. They are scattered in different locations and are not expected to learn how to sideload via USB. I figure the easiest way to have them all download the latest versions of a build is to just have them click on a web link (think Dropbox/Google Drive links) in the Oculus Go browser that will install the latest APK. Uploading to Oculus Store and updating the build there is not an option.

    Not by default, no.
    I have heard that there might be some apps you can sideload, and those apps (was it ES File Explorer?  Can't remember; h aven't done it myself) let you install APKs from within that app. 
    But not sure..

    Thanks. I'll look into it. I spent some time trying to find a workaround to download and install how you traditionally would on an Android device, but those steps just don't work on the Go.

    Hi ! I'm also interested by this, as I'm facing the same issue.
