As VR content expands beyond gaming, Facebook is bringing support for subscriptions on the Oculus Quest platform.
The ecosystem of games, apps and VR experiences on the Oculus Quest platform is constantly growing, and more developers are expanding to new content beyond gaming. This new push has more and more developers building productivity, social, and fitness tools – and creating businesses around their content with subscription services.

Facebook is now bringing support for Oculus Quest subscriptions to support these business models, giving users the ability to subscribe to more content, tools, and features. With the new feature, users are able to unlock premium content from apps like FitXR, Rec Room, Tribe XR, TRIPP, vSpatial, and VZfit in VR.
The only prerequisite to purchasing and using app subscriptions is that your Oculus Quest’s operating system is v27 or higher.
App subscriptions are different depending on the app title. For example, some titles require a subscription to access their service. Others might use a subscription as an option to unlock premium content and features.
Users who already own titles that are now introducing subscriptions can still access all the content they purchase, but subscribing will offer new, premium content, tools, and features.
Subscription-based titles will have a free trial option so that users can try an experience beforehand. Also, they can cancel a subscription at any time to avoid a charge during the next billing cycle.
