Navigating the PlutoSphere Dashboard

The Dashboard serves as the core of your PlutoSphere experience. You can access it from your home computer, phone, or Quest’s browser. Just remember to disable ad blockers for a smooth and seamless experience.

The Dashboard is divided into two main tabs:


Here you will be able to see your Virtual Machine. From here you can view your Token Balance, the amount of time you have left available, Pluto Drive Storage, and the option to power on your Virtual Machine.


Here, you’ll be able to see your token balance, the amount of playtime remaining, and even buy more tokens if needed. It’s your one-stop-shop for everything PlutoSphere, ensuring you always have the best possible experience during your early access adventures.

Understanding the Dashboard’s features and layout can help you maximize its utility. This will allow you to quickly and easily navigate between sections, manage your tokens and settings, and access support resources whenever needed.

Installing PlutoSphere on Your Oculus Quest

With everything set up, you can now proceed to install the PlutoSphere app on your Oculus Quest. To do so, you’ll need to use SideQuest. Once installed, make sure PlutoSphere is listed in the “Currently Installed Apps” section, and you’re good to go! Don’t forget to enable Developer Mode in your Quest’s settings to access Windows apps on your PlutoSphere computer through the plutosphere quest client.

When you’re ready to dive into the world of PC VR gaming, simply select the PlutoSphere app from the “Unknown Sources” section in your App library. Make sure you have a good internet connection for the best experience.

Connecting to Your PlutoSphere Computer

After installing the app, you can establish a connection to your PlutoSphere computer using Desktop Vision. When your computer is online, click the “Desktop Streaming” button in the PlutoSphere Dashboard, and you’ll be transported to your virtual desktop on the plutosphere computer’s desktop with high streaming quality.

To adjust the streaming settings for Desktop Vision, follow these steps:

  1. Click the teal bar on the left side of your screen.
  2. Click the top menu item (three dots).
  3. The Desktop Vision stream provides the option of Full Screen mode. To enable this, simply select the “Full Screen Mode” option.

Connecting Your Quest to PlutoSphere Computer

To connect your Oculus Quest to your PlutoSphere computer, you’ll need to use the PlutoSphere app you’ve installed on your Quest. Launch the app and you will see a list of available computers to connect to. Find your PlutoSphere computer on the list and select it. You’ll be asked to enter a PIN, which can be found on your PlutoSphere Dashboard under the ‘My Computers’ section.

Once you’ve entered the PIN, the connection will be established. If all goes well, you’ll see your PlutoSphere computer’s desktop in your Oculus Quest headset. Now, you’re ready to start streaming PC VR games directly to your headset. Remember to maintain a strong and stable internet connection for the best VR experience.

Playing PC VR Games with PlutoSphere

All set and ready to go! Now, you can delve into the exciting realm of PC VR gaming with PlutoSphere. With your Oculus Quest connected to your PlutoSphere computer, you can stream high-end PC VR games without needing a dedicated gaming computer.

While you’re busy exploring virtual worlds, remember that you can toggle the SteamVR Dashboard while in-game by long-pressing the Menu button on the left controller. If you experience any performance or latency issues, don’t worry – you can eagerly troubleshoot them by following the instructions in the PlutoSphere support resources.

Managing Tokens and Storage

As your PlutoSphere adventure progresses, managing tokens and storage options becomes necessary. Tokens are spent when using PlutoSphere computer and are visible in the top left of the Pluto Dashboard. Keep an eye on your token balance and purchase more when needed to continue enjoying your favorite games and other Windows apps.

Keep in mind that PlutoSphere doesn’t include persistent storage by default, resulting in the need to reinstall games with each use of your PlutoSphere machine. However, you can purchase Pluto Drive to add persistent storage to your account, making your gaming experience even more seamless with pre installed games.

Troubleshooting Performance and Latency Issues

In case of low visual quality, blurry visuals, or lag in your touch controllers or head tracking, your first step should be verifying whether your internet connection meets the minimum requirement of 50+ Mbps.
