If you don't see the VR option in the in-game settings menu, try a different Roblox world.You have an old or beta version of Roblox: Try uninstalling Roblox and downloading it again directly from the Roblox site. It may also help to install the app as an administrator if you have that ability.You may need Steam VR: Try using your Quest with Steam VR. Link your Oculus Quest or Quest 2 to your PC using the instructions provided above, but launch SteamVR before you perform step 15. Once Steam VR is running, you can launch the Roblox game of your choice, and it will automatically open on your Quest in VR mode.
