Oculus Mobile Godot plugin

This is a work in progress which requires a few unsubmitted changes (PR #29824) in the core of Godot, and has a few remaining issues.
Check back here soon when we're a little further along!

This repository contains the source code for the Oculus Mobile Godot plugin. See demo project as an example for how to use the plugin.

This is an Android only plugin that is only supported on the following Oculus Mobile devices:

  • Oculus Quest
  • Oculus Go
  • GearVR

The use of this plugin require Godot 3.2 or later.


  • This project is released under a MIT license.
  • Please check the Oculus Mobile SDK license for information about the Oculus Mobile SDK used in this project.


After cloning this repository make sure to initialise the submodules with git submodule init. When you've pulled a newer version make sure to run git submodule update.
The project uses cmake as its primary build system, which you can configure by following the setup instructions for the Android SDK & NDK.

Android SDK & NDK

  • Download and setup the latest version of the Android SDK.
  • Add the Android SDK cmake binaries directory to the environment path. The directory can be found under <android_sdk_location>/cmake/<cmake_version>/bin.
  • Download and setup the latest version of the Android NDK.
  • Set the environment variable ANDROID_NDK_HOME to the Android NDK location.

Godot headers

By default the project is configured to checkout the godot_headers repo as a submodule under the godot_headers directory. You can edit the GODOT_HEADERS_DIR cmake variable in the CMakeLists.txt build file if you'd like to provide a different source for the Godot headers.
Note: At the moment, the godot_headers repo does not have the necessary dependencies to build this plugin. As such you'll need to update your Godot fork to patch in the missing dependencies:

  • Clone the Godot repo, and patch in PR #29824
  • Open the platform/android/java/AndroidManifest.xml and add the following meta-data entry above the org.godotengine.godot.Godot activity entry:
    • <meta-data android:name="" android:value="vr_only"/>
  • Rebuild the Godot Android shared libraries
    • Optional: build the export templates for your Godot fork by following these instructions
  • Update the GODOT_HEADERS_DIR cmake variable in the CMakeLists.txt build file to point to the location of the updated headers (e.g: <godot_fork_root_dir>/modules/gdnative/include)

Oculus Mobile SDK

  • Download the latest version of the Oculus Mobile SDK into a sub-directory of the ovr_sdk_mobile directory. It's recommended to use the SDK version as the sub-directory name (e.g: ovr_sdk_mobile/1.23.0/ for version 1.23.0 of the Oculus Mobile SDK).
  • Update the OVR_ROOT_DIR cmake variable in the the CMakeLists.txt build file to point to the Oculus Mobile SDK root directory.


Note: Ensure you're using the Android SDK's version of cmake.

In the project root directory:

  • Navigate to the build directory: cd build
  • Run:
cmake -GNinja ..
cmake --build .

Once the build successfully completes, the plugin and its dependencies shared libraries can be found in the default output location: demo/addons/godot_ovrmobile/libs/<arch>


When exporting the project apk, make sure that Xr Mode under the Android export Graphics section is set to Oculus Mobile VR.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
