Oculus Go support

Not applicable

Fired up my old Oculus Go the other day, after not using it for a long time.  I know it now requires meta account, so I created one before I switched it on.  Suprisingly the Oculus go worked straight away and I could use aps without the need to link with meta account or whatever, but once internet was activated I was stuck in a loop of 3 white dots on black screen.

Did a factory reset as oculus go app/account is not accessable anymore, but it still asks on boot up post reset to login on phone to oculus account (which doesn't exist anymore)

Any ideas on how to get it to work, or should I just bin the brick?  I know if I buy another VR device it won't be a meta one.

Hey @Anonymous! Thank you for taking the time to share your issues regarding your Oculus Go device. The Oculus Go was an important stepping stone in the lifecycle of not only Oculus but VR as a whole. It brought to life a new world for millions of people, and introduced them to what VR was, and could be. We would like to thank you for being an early adopter of this new reality, and for taking this journey with us for so long. Unfortunately, all things must come to an end, and our focus has since shifted to ensure that we can keep focusing on pushing what is possible in VR. While support for the Oculus Go has ended, we hope you can still find plenty of experiences, wonder and fun with the apps that continue to thrive on the Oculus Go, and hope to continue to see you in the Metaverse. Have a legendary rest of your day!

That's not entirely true AlmightyFalcon, I did have some fun smashing into the unit with my strongest screwdriver.

It's going to electrics recycling now, so no need for further replies.  Salvaged the lead, strap, controller to give away etc nowt much inside the unit, a tin front panel, few small micro chips and layers of plastic.  Only used it around 10 times, so not great value, little Occy I hardly knew thee.

I will cancel my meta account too if I can as i'm never gonna need it.  Thanks for responses, tho the first one maybe an AI bot 🙂


Well, actually, the Ocukus Go devices still work. You can always create a new account of your old one doesn't exist anymore. Unfortunately, Meta has a problem authenticating the paid apps, but there are solutions on the internet. Just google what you can do with Oculus Go / Gear VR (they are the same) in 2024 and you will see that not all is lost.

Question on this... 
If it is no longer supported by Meta, why are you still selling products/DLC thru your site for the Go?
Yesterday, I was able to buy another table for PinballFX2 on my Go thru Meta...
Why are you selling things for a product you know you don't support?
Doesn't that seem kind of odd?
