How to fix Oculus Quest 2 apps not showing?
With that being said, Oculus Quest 2 isn’t really immune to bugs. A major server outage last year had a lot of people reporting the “apps not showing” issue. So, if you are unable to see the apps you own in your library, it’s most probably a problem on the server-side. However, there are a few workarounds that you can try to fix this:
1) If you have been using the Oculus Companion app on PC, sign out of the same. Next, download the Companion app on your phone and sign into it. You should now be able to see all your apps in the library.
2) If you are unable to see your apps on the Companion mobile app, simply sign out of the app and sign back in. This should fix the problem for you.
3) If the previous workarounds didn’t help, try rebooting your Oculus Quest 2. To do so, make sure that the headset is on and then hold down the power button on the right side of the headset until a ‘shut-down screen’ shows up. Select Restart to trigger a reboot.
4) Update the Oculus Companion app, if available.
5) Try reinstalling the Oculus Companion app.
If none of the above works, you’ll need to factory reset your Oculus Quest 2. This may be an inconvenient step as you’ll need to download all your apps again. But the officials suggest doing so, in case nothing else works. If you need further help, you can contact the official support for Quest.
