How Do I Play Minecraft Quest 3?

Minecraft continues to be a gaming juggernaut, and with the arrival of the Meta Quest 3, you can now experience the blocky world in virtual reality!

But how exactly do you get started with Minecraft on your shiny new headset? Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered.

There are two main ways to play Minecraft on your Quest 3, each with its pros and cons. Let’s explore both options:

1. Minecraft Bedrock Edition with Oculus Link:

This is the simpler approach. Minecraft Bedrock Edition is designed for consoles and mobile devices, making it well-optimized for VR. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Minecraft Bedrock Edition: You can purchase it from the Microsoft Store [Microsoft Store Minecraft].
  • Meta Quest App: Download this from your PC to connect your headset [Meta Quest App for PC].
  • Link Cable: This nifty cable connects your Quest 3 to your computer, allowing you to play PC VR games.

Here’s how to get started:

  1. Install Minecraft Bedrock Edition and the Meta Quest App on your PC.
  2. Fire up the Meta Quest App and search for “Minecraft.” Install this app (it’s not the full game, but a companion app).
  3. Grab your Link Cable, plug one end into your Quest 3 and the other into your PC.
  4. Put on your headset and power it on. You should see a prompt asking you to enable Oculus Link. Accept it.
  5. Open the Oculus app on your PC and navigate to your library. You should see Minecraft listed there. Launch it!


  • Simpler setup process.
  • Generally smoother performance, especially on less powerful PCs.


  • Requires a Link Cable, which can be an extra cost.
  • May not offer all the features of the Java Edition (more on that later).

2. Minecraft Java Edition with SideQuest:

This option offers more flexibility and access to the full range of Minecraft Java Edition features, including mods and community servers. However, it requires some additional setup:

  • Minecraft Java Edition: Purchase it from the official Minecraft website [Minecraft Java Edition].
  • Java Runtime Environment: Make sure you have Java installed on your PC [Java Download].
  • SideQuest: This is a third-party app that allows you to sideload apps onto your Quest 3 [SideQuest].
  • Oculus Developer Account: You’ll need to register for free as part of the setup process [Oculus developer registration].


  1. Download and install the necessary software mentioned above.
  2. Enable developer mode on your Quest 3 (consult your headset’s manual or online resources for specific instructions).
  3. Use SideQuest to install a VR mod for Minecraft Java Edition like “Vivecraft.”
  4. Connect your Quest 3 to your PC with a Link Cable.
  5. Launch Minecraft Java Edition and select the VR profile associated with your mod.


  • Full access to Java Edition features and community content.
  • Potentially better graphics fidelity (depending on your PC).


  • More complex setup process.
  • May require troubleshooting for optimal performance.
  • Not officially supported by Mojang Studios (creators of Minecraft).

Choosing the Right Option:

If you prioritize ease of use and a guaranteed smooth experience, Minecraft Bedrock Edition with Oculus Link is the way to go. 

If you’re a seasoned Minecrafter who craves access to mods and community servers and is comfortable with a bit more tinkering, then Minecraft Java Edition with SideQuest might be the better choice.


  • Make sure your PC meets the minimum system requirements for the Minecraft version you choose.
  • Invest in a comfortable headset strap for extended VR sessions.
  • There are plenty of online tutorials and resources to help you troubleshoot any issues you encounter.

With a little setup, you’ll be exploring the blocky world of Minecraft in VR on your Meta Quest 3 in no time! Now get out there and start building, crafting, and adventuring!
