But what if you want to use Discord while playing VR games on your Meta Quest 2? The Quest 2 is one of the best VR headsets available right now, with a powerful processor, a sharp display, and a wireless design. It has a lot of great games and apps that you can enjoy in standalone mode or with a PC connection.


Unfortunately, there is no official native Discord app for the Quest 2 (at least not yet). So how can you use Discord voice chat while playing VR games on your headset? In this article, we will show you two ways to do that: one for standalone mode and one for PC VR mode. Let's get started!


How to Install Discord on Quest 2




In order to use Discord on your Quest 2 in standalone mode, you have to sideload it on your headset. Sideload means installing an app that is not available on the official Quest store, using an Android application package (APK) file. To do that, you need a few things:

FAQs




What are the advantages of using Discord over the built-in voice chat in VR games?




Some of the advantages of using Discord over the built-in voice chat in VR games are:



  • You can chat with your friends across different platforms, devices, and games.



  • You can create or join servers, channels, groups, and bots that suit your interests and preferences.



  • You can customize your audio settings, such as volume, input/output devices, noise suppression, echo cancellation, etc.



  • You can access other features of Discord, such as text chat, screen sharing, camera, emojis, stickers, etc.



Can I share my screen or use my camera with Discord on Quest 2?




No, you cannot share your screen or use your camera with Discord on Quest 2 in standalone mode. This is because these features require access to the system-level functions of the headset, which are not available for sideloaded apps. However, you may be able to share your screen or use your camera with Discord on PC VR mode, if you have a compatible webcam or capture card connected to your PC.


How can I access Discord text chat or other features in VR?




To access Discord text chat or other features in VR, you have to use the Oculus button to open the universal menu or Dash menu, and then select the desktop view of Discord on your PC. From there, you can use your mouse and keyboard or your VR controllers to interact with Discord. However, this may not be very convenient or immersive, as you have to switch between the game and Discord views. Alternatively, you can use a third-party app like OVR Toolkit or OVRdrop to overlay Discord on your VR game, but this may affect your performance or compatibility.


What are some alternatives to Discord for VR communication?




Some of the alternatives to Discord for VR communication are:



  • Oculus Party: A built-in feature of Quest 2 that lets you create a party with up to eight friends and chat with them in VR. You can also invite them to join you in compatible games and apps.



  • Bigscreen: A social VR app that lets you watch movies, TV shows, and videos with your friends in VR. You can also chat with them using voice or text, and customize your avatar and environment.
