Using the Oculus Go browser: how to enable Private Browsing on Oculus Go?
Oculus Go does not come with a special browser pre-installed. It runs on software just called ‘Browser’. After further experiments we managed to find that it does run well, similarly to Windows Explorer. It is not quiet Google Chrome, but it is not Opera either.
How to open the Browser?
- Choose the Browser button in the menu at the bottom of the screen.
- Choose the G option for the Google Browser.
- Type in the address you would like to visit and hit Enter.
Browsing on your Oculus Go allows you to use the controller as a navigation stick. Selecting something works a bit differently than when selecting with a mouse. When you want to select something with your Oculus Go controller, just hover over the option and click the button. You might have to press harder on the controller button as some users have reported diminished sensitivity.
