How to add friends to your Oculus Go

As the Oculus Go (OGO) rises in popularity the community grows as well. Because of this, there are going to be plenty of people wanting to play co-op games with you, or even just share the experience of VR together. With so many things to do together, you should definitely add more people to your friends group. Here's how to add people to your friends' list on the Oculus Go!

Suggested friends

By scrolling down your entire friends list on the OGO it will show you suggested friends that are based on the friends you already have. There are "people you may know", and here's how to access that.

  2. Scroll to the bottom of your friends list.
  3. Hover over the icon with the stick man and a + symbol.
