Welcome to the Android Mobile Alpha release! Additional information on the Android Mobile Alpha can be found in this blog post.


  • Initial release of VRChat for Android Mobile devices!!
    • You must have an active VRChat Plus subscription to use the Android Mobile Alpha.
    • Click on this link on your mobile device to install VRChat Android Mobile Alpha.
  • We've implemented a new set of touch controls for Android Mobile!
    • You can use a virtual joystick to move around. You can also just touch and drag on the screen to walk forward and "steer" yourself!
    • You can use virtual buttons to jump and crouch/go prone.
    • You can pick up items by tapping them.
    • These controls work in landscape and portrait mode!
  • Even when VRChat isn't running, you'll get notifications when you get friend requests and invites!
    • This also works when you're playing VRChat on another platform! Super helpful for keeping up when you're away from your PC or Quest!
  • Added several new settings in the menus for mobile usage.


  • Very Poor avatars cannot be used or force-shown on Android Mobile, and will always be replaced with Fallbacks
  • Android Mobile users will have "Android" next to their nameplates, similar to users on the Meta Quest platform.

Known Issues

  • You're able to see your own Very Poor avatar if you're wearing one, even though nobody else can see it
  • Switching between WiFi and mobile connections will cause disconnects
  • Low-end devices might struggle to run VRChat.
    • We recommend "mid-range" devices with at least 6GB of RAM. Any flagship from the last ~3 years should have no issues.
  • The "unlimited" FPS option currently does not work as intended.
  • Audio can sometimes stop working.
  • Bluetooth audio can occasionally cause the application to crash.
    • This can also happen when connecting/disconnecting Bluetooth devices
  • Sometimes interacting with certain UIs causes the camera to move unexpectedly.
