Is it possible to push a Unity build to the Quest via WiFi?

Is there any way to push an apk to the Quest without having it connected to
the PC?



In the docs on https://developer.oculus.com/documentation/quest/latest/concepts/mobile-device-setup-quest/ it says: "Note that developers should swap the provided USB cable with a USB3
cable."



I assume they are talking about a USB Type-C to USB-A cable? (which
unfortunately I don't have access to right now)

I've been using the cable included with the Quest to push the apk.

But yeah, I definitely would prefer to push test builds to the Quest using wifi instead.

Hi, you can technically connect your Quest over Wi-Fi with ADB. This also makes it easier to profile and get debug output from your projects running on the device. But loading larger builds might take longer than over USB3.
The steps of how to achieve this are pretty much the same as with the Oculus Go.

Hi all, thanks for your answers. Connecting to the Quest via Wi-Fi using adb works fine. The only thing that's impractical imho is that you still need to plug in a USB cable to set up the Wi-Fi connection.

The Quest came with an USB Type-C cable, but I don't have an USB Type-C port on my computer. My question was if I can somehow get around buying an USB Type-C to USB A cable (like this one: https://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-Type-C-USB-Male-Cable/dp/B01GGKYN0A/ref=sxin_2_pb?__mk_de_DE=%C3...)

In the end I still bought the cable. It's quite short, so I'm still using adb over Wi-Fi most of the times

Can someone please tell me how I can do this without having a USB-C to USB-A cable. My iMac 2014 doesn't have the USB-C port.

Thanks in advance!

You can use App Lab to do it without a cable. However, it's a bit of a hack as App Lab is meant as a low-restrictions store. App Lab will require setting up app signing, maintaining a version number, and a well formed application manifest; all things you don't have to worry about when using `adb`. https://developer.oculus.com/blog/introducing-app-lab-a-new-way-to-distribute-oculus-quest-apps/
