I would like to be able to access the camera roll without internet. One of my primary GO uses is to view 360 degree photos I take while travelling (Samsung Gear 360), and I often do not have internet.
Currently you cannot launch the Oculus app (required to access camera roll) without an internet connection. It wants to "start fresh" in this case. If there could be an option to allow non-store functions (like accessing camera roll, and possibly device settings) when there is no internet connection, that would be very useful.
A bonus would be if the app could create a wifi hotspot for sharing the camera roll, as otherwise you would need a separate travel router to make a connection between the phone and the GO.
If this is too much to add to the existing app, a separate app for just this (share camera roll via wifi hotspot) would also solve the problem nicely.
I've tried 3rd party DLNA servers, but the GO does not see the photos as 360, displaying them as distorted 2D instead. You also cannot see previews which makes negotiating a large folder of photos difficult.
Either improve the trackpad, or change it to a D-pad button arrangement. The controller (the pud) is terrible.The controller needs to be attached to the headset when not in use so it doesn't get lost.Android-style app manager.Zoom the screen of the browser.3D backgrounds ffs. 2D looks totally lame.Edit ... the browser does get bigger when I use YouTube full screen mode, pretty much fills the fov.Can one do the same thing with a generic web page?
Now that I've had it for a few days, first thing I can think of is..I'm not enthralled by the Home Screen.Maybe just some customization, ability to PIN apps to it or something?I find myself powering it up and then going straight to the screen that shows my installed apps.I think I might like it best if there were a room in my Oculus Rooms that I could view/launch my apps from and have that be my Home Screen maybe???
Does anyone know if it's dangerous to use an external battery to make games and etc. last longer because of the lithium battery?
Have a clock and battery meters on the underside of the Oculus Go controller in VR. That way we don’t have to pause/exit an app to see the information.
The battery issue was not off topic. This is the oculus go suggestion thread. The numerous battery discussions were when the go 1st came out. I wanted opinions of people who have been using external batteries many months after it came out.
What is the point of the Netflix and concert apps? You can't watch a full movie in one sitting because of the battery goes dead. Can someone at Oculus explain how a user is supposed to work with those apps?
