GearVR dual app

Hi all,

So, I'm looking into the possibilty of having a non-vr component to a gearVR app, essentially so that the user can take off the headset for authentication and etc. where it's easier, and then return to the VR for the app's main experience.

I've seen talk about apps being able to be "dual" instead of "vr_only", but the response from devs is always that it's not ready.

Since one of the official Samsung apps (Samsung Internet) was changed to be a dual app somewhat recently,
I'm wondering if there's any new word on when that functionality might be available to developers? or if there's any documentation I've missed or other ways to implement something similar?

    Hi,

    Welcome to the Oculus Developer Forums.

    Regarding this:

    I'm wondering if there's any new word on when that functionality might be available to developers? or if there's any documentation I've missed or other ways to implement something similar?

    I'm seeing that this was proposed for implementation by this time 2017, and am currently checking into the status of this and when/if this is possible for developers to do.


    Edit: it appears this is on track for the second half of 2017.


    So... is this still the case because I can't seem to find any support for it anywhere?
