Unable to download or install a bunch of GearVR games




I have been trying to download all my games over the past few months, just to make sure I have access to everything I have purchased, and I found a ton of games that won't download or install any more.  I've tried on multiple networks and on a couple different phones and the following titles simply won't download and install.  I know this is not a phone issue (there is plenty of space, a factory reset changes nothing).  All of the following titles download partially and then simply fail.  I realize that there was a similar topic in December of last year and we were assured that the problem was being worked on and should be fixed by now, but this isn't the case.  Please assist.


(Some of these titles are free, some are paid, none of them fully download or install)

Same here, but with DLCs. I bought "Birds" DLC for Face Your Fears late July and has dissapeared (with the rest of DLCs)... I couldn't even try it... 

Not worth the headache man. I sat there arguing with them for 2 weeks because there app is bad. They just push it to samsung knowing samsung can not help you. Tbh it's a cash grab for meta. Meta intentionally sabotaged the servers and app to force you to buy there new 500 dollar garbage.

I've just bought Augmented Empire for my Gear VR and I couldn't install it. Man, if the app is not working anymore, why the let people buy it ? why is it still on sale ? I can't understand

Thats exactly my issue. If you cant buy it it shouldnt be advertised - simple.

So someone marked this as a "solution" and, as has been mentioned a few times in this thread and others, it is *not* a solution.  This is *not* Samsung's issue, unless they were hosting the software downloads on their servers (which they are not, I am 100% certain, after looking at the URLS) or if they were coding the application (which they are not, as it's Oculus/Meta branded, requires Meta logins, uses Facebook, etc.)  Essentially all this "solution" does is put the blame on Samsung for problems that are 100% on the Meta end.  If you have decided to not fix these issues, just be honest with us, have an official representative come out and say "we're not fixing this, you're not going to be able to download and install the software you paid for, and that's final" and we'll go from there.  Otherwise, someone on the META/OCULUS end needs to take a look at the OCULUS servers and figure out why downloads are cut off partially finished, or why the OCULUS software isn't working correctly.  Again, whoever marked this as a "solution" is incorrect, period.

Dont bother with them. Even tho meta bought oculus and they own it and control it they will tell you its Samsung's problem. Meta has basically shut down everything to do with oculus to force you to buy there overpriced garbage. They overwrote all my oculus data when they transferred my account to meta. Now I can not log in to the app and all my purchases have magically been deleted but that's a "samsung problem not an oculus problem". Pro tip go to reddit and sub to the gearvr subreddit. They have a repository where you can download the apps and you just have to use an icon creator to post the app to your apps list. Then you open the app itself and plug in your phone. It's basically the only backdoor that works now to use gear vr after meta sabotaged it.

Agree with you, that is not a solution. Meta is the problem so they have to give a solution, not Samsung

Having same issue on my Oculus go. They need to pull their finger out. Oculus is a shambles at the moment. Releasing an app that stops pairing after reset and unable to download games we've purchased and they are still selling.

CLEARLY an issue with THEIR servers. My god, that's just embarrassing blaming Samsung for downloading issues that everyone is having on multiple devices.
