If you're interested in buying a VR headset, but you're not sure if a PC is required. This guide is going to show ou how to use VR apps with a PC.
Currently, there are 3 ways:
- Use Smartphone VR headset

- Download SideQuest apps
Smartphone VR Headset
Everyone has a smartphone nowadays and the Samsung Gear VR lets the user experience VR simply just by using the smartphone.
However, Samsun Gear VR has been discontinued, and the next best thing we recommend is Oculus Quest 2.
Oculus Quest 2
Facebook (Meta)'s Oculus Quest 2 is a standalone VR headset with much more capability than just using a smartphone. The apps and games users can experience offer much more fidelity and complexity than just smartphones.
There are high-end VR applications and games users can download and stream directly to the headset without any cable or PC connection.
If the user wants to connect the Quest 2 to the desktop computer, they can do it via Oculus Air Link as well.
Oculus Quest 2 users can expand the user experience beyond the default Quest 2 apps with SideQuest apps with much more cutting edge VR content, access custom indie content that isn't even available on the Oculus Store, and also sideload games on the Quest 2.
If you want to experience more than just the mainstream VR content, you gotta download the SideQuest app
It's completely free and also lets developers test VR projects.
