Feature request: Re-center view from the desktop app

Ok, just a small request, please add a re-center view button in the desktop app of Oculus Home.

When new people come over to try VR and they have to re-center the view, it's always a pain to do/explain. I would love to be able to sit at my desk while people are trying the Rift, and just click "re-center" for them, and voila! Would make things a lot easier.

    I second this request.  My tracking camera gets moved around quite a bit so it is always a little off when starting Oculus Home.  It would be nice to just tap a button on the keyboard or even some sort of combination on the remote.  A lot of games/experiences seem to recenter on start so that has made this issue not as bad.

    Me it's mainly because I have a simulator, I usually sit down, start the game for people then give them the HMD and they always need to recenter because of the height/stance difference...

    There was an app that made tapping the HMD trigger the recenter.  If that's put into Oculus Home that means you could recenter the view for your guests with a slap to the back of the head.
