Add apps from APK files to Admin Center

This article is only applicable to admins with relevant permissions.
Before you can add an app from an APK file to a Meta Quest for Business device, you need to add the app to your organization’s apps in Admin Center. Adding an app from an APK file is different from adding a third-party app.
Add an app from an APK to your organization’s apps in Admin Center
  1. Click Devices in the left menu of Admin Center.
  2. Click Manage apps in the left menu.
  3. Click Create app in the top right.
  4. Fill out the information to add an app from an APK to your library, including a link to the app file.
  5. Click Create.
If you have purchased the Shared Mode add-on, any apps you add to Admin Center will be scanned for compatibility with Shared Mode. There will be a notice informing you of compatibility. If you add an app that’s incompatible with Shared Mode to a Shared Mode device, the device may not function properly.
Choosing appropriate apps
Your organization may allow users 13 years or older (subject to applicable legal requirements where you reside) to use devices in Shared Mode. Ensure you choose apps that are appropriate for anyone who may use the device in Shared Mode.

Update an app
  1. Click Devices in the left menu of Admin Center.
  2. Click Manage apps in the left menu.
  3. If an update is available for an app, you can click Update available to the right of the app’s name.
  4. Click Update app.
  5. Fill out the updated information, then click Confirm.
Delete an app
If you delete an app from Admin Center, then it will also be deleted from your organization’s Meta Quest devices that use it. To delete an app:
  1. Click Devices in the left menu of Admin Center.
  2. Click Apps in the left menu.
  3. Click to the right of the app you want to delete, then select Delete app.
  4. Click Delete to confirm.
Invite a developer to share private apps
As well as adding an app from an APK file to Admin Center, you can also invite a developer to share a private app from Meta Quest Developer Center to your organization’s Admin Center
