So if you’re ready to share recorded videos of your Oculus Quest 2 adventures, then you’ve come to the right place. Downloading your videos to your phone shouldn’t take more than 2 minutes. Let’s jump right into it!

And that’s it! It’s as simple as that. It’s important to note that recorded videos with longer time frames will take longer to download. You may even notice a Wi-Fi icon when trying to download a larger video file; this typically occurs when the file is too large and may need a while to fully download, or alternatively, you can cut needed sections of the video on your Oculus App to reduce the file size.
