How to open the console on GO?

For GearVR dvelopment, you tap the screen with 4 fingers to bring up the console... but that requires I remove the phone from the HMD.  How do I bring up the console for development on the oculus GO?

    I haven't found a way yet to display the native UE4 console, but you can always create a 3D widget + virtual keyboard, enter your console command there, then use Execute Console Command to execute it.

    Considering the Go doesn't have an on-screen keyboard like a mobile, this might be the only way to enter console commands anyway.

    If you got to project settings there is a place for console keys.  On Oculus GO I added a bind for MotionController(R)facebutton1 (back button).  This allows me to open the console while playing my game so you can read things you logged to console.  However you can't type anything to it.

    I just ordered a $14 bluetooth keyboard from amazon that I'm hoping will allow me full access to the console while testing on my gear vr.  though i'm not sure if i'll be able to get it paired or not.
