Hi, I just bought an oculus quest and I want to connect it to my camera Insta360 EVO, but the app (Insta360 VR) appear only for Go. Should we wait for the update or is there some way to install Go apps in Quest? Thanks

    Would be interested buying the insta360 evo but only if it was compatible with the Oculus Quest

    I just ordered the Insta360 Evo, I'm sure the app will come available sometime but in the meantime instead of wirelessly transferring videos and pics, we can move them from the camera to PC and then to the Quest I believe.

    Insta360 EVO is the best consumer-grade 3D cam out there in my opinion.  I love it.  I use it with my GO for right now, but I agree it'd be great to also use Quest.  However a bit pointless as the EVO is 3D, not VR, so you have 3DoF, rendering the touch controllers pointless. It's perfect for GO though. Sure there's an app coming.
    Rift-S, Quest 128GB, GO 64GB.

    I side loaded the GO version by using ADB to pull the package from the quest, I then installed the APK on the Quest.  It works however the headset is the pointer (dot in center of screen)  aim head, pull trigger. Kind of annoying I am hoping Insta makes a Quest version.

    How did you get this to work. On my quest it launches and then crashes right away

    I just picked up this camera this week and its really cool, Pretty blown away by the 3D effect. (though the locking mechanisms stink) I need to get this working in the quest (do not have a go) so I can show everyone. Psyched to be able to get 3d video/picks of the kids for the on coming AR world we will be in 10 or so years from now

    One way around it right now , if you have a PC, you can download the Insta360 Studio Software (it's free) move the pics and vids from the camera to the software and it will convert pics to jpeg and videos to mp4. Move the pics and vids to the quest and it will recognize them, although I can't get it to recognize 180 pics, it sees the 360 pics, 180 and 360 videos.

    I wrote to Insta360 and they told me that Oculus rejected the Insta 360 App on the Quest Store.

    I’ve raised a ‘Suggestion’ to complain about this on Oculus’ Feedback website oculus.uservoice.com here...


    https://oculus.uservoice.com/forums/921937-oculus-quest/suggestions/38128405-the-insta360-app-should-not-have-been-rejected-on


    It’s in the ‘New’ view/section.


    Please register and vote for this post.


    I recommend having a trawl through this website which highlights all that’s good and problematic about the Quest.  


    Interesting ‘Top Ideas’, worth my vote are...

      • Make the sit down guardian system adjustable in size
      • Ability to wirelessly transfer media to the Quest
      • Add cut and paste

    So I did this tonight and got the player loading rather than just insta (ha) crashing. First thing is first you don't want the Insta360Moment.apk 20MB you need to be looking for the insta360VR.apk @ 80MB. A friend of mine had a samsung gear so pulled the app for me..... But you can do this (cant link to new) into youtube  "NO GO REQUIRED! Downloading Oculus Go APKs DIRECTLY to your PC (without an Oculus Go)" Sideload the APK and bobs ya uncle. Good luck. happy to help.

    Actually I have Insta360VR running on my oculus quest very smootly and it's awesome!
    It connects via wify to insta360 one x to play recorded videos directly and even downloads them locally on the Quest.

    You have just to enable developer mode and sideload insta360VR.apk.
    Just search for "NO GO REQUIRED! Downloading Oculus Go APKs DIRECTLY to your PC (without an Oculus Go)" on youtube. Watch all of the vid (give credit to this guy!) but in the end just look into the comments, order them by date and look for the comment from Bob (around early march 2020) and youl'll find that Open Pc reviews kindly answered him with the direct link to download the apk.
    Have fun! One X + Oculus Quest are TOP!

    @Karmaquest I can't find the comment you are referring to from Bob. There is one from Bob McDonald but it does not refer to the downloadable file (neither do the replies).
