Passthrough on demand

I've seen a number of people asking about Passthrough on demand and asked myself, with no reply. Maybe I can get a reply if it is its own discussion. 
Why isn't it available yet?

    I just bought a quest two days ago. I also strongly require passthrough on demand. Could someone tell us when it is released? I heard it was in the end of 2019.

    I just found the way to use the passthrough, here it is. Click the oculus button and go back to Home menu. Then click the roomscale button which is up on the navigation tab so you are able to see around without taking off the HMD.

    Yep, that's the only way to do it so far. The Quest REALLY should have the same ability as the Rift-S: double click home to get pass through.

    My guess as to why they haven't is they don't want people (for safety reasons) walking around outside with pass through on. But I would say being able to quickly check your surroundings is even more important for a mobile headset.

    Gosh, this is needed badly and I was expecting it to be released by the end of last year. I swear that it was announced for a late 2019 release....

    According to Oculus, it's going to be added within this week.
