Quest 2 Controller Non Pairing? This Is Why…

Quest 2 controller pairing process should complete in a couple of seconds
after you lot have pressed the buttons provided in the Oculus mobile app pairing instructions.

If yours didn’t and you are stuck at the pairing screen then don’t worry – all promise is not lost!

The virtually common reason why the Quest 2 controller is not pairing successfully is that the controller is non turned on
(not receiving power from the battery).

Check that the battery is inserted correctly and is fully charged.

It might also be the case that you take done everything correctly and it’south actually the weakened spring on the
controller battery contact that fails to properly complete the electric circuit. I have discussed these and other
troubleshooting steps
in my previous article.

Tin can your Pair Quest 2 Controller without Oculus Telephone App?

Unfortunately, it is not possible to pair Quest two controllers without the Oculus mobile app.
The app is required for pairing the controllers both during the headset initial setup also as when y’all have purchased and want to pair a new controller.

See also the official answer to the question from an Oculus back up team representative:

Not possible to pair Quest 2 Controller without mobile app.

Simply Oculus (Meta) has indeed shown over fourth dimension that the production and the platform are beingness improved constantly. So who knows, pairing controllers directly from the headset might become a reality someday.

Anyhow, that is all from me. I hope you found the commodity useful and got your Quest two controller successfully paired! Happy VR adventures!
