Launch Oculus or Samsung browser from within a Gear VR app

Dear all
I searched a bit and didn't find an answer, so if someone already asked, please lead me to it.
When I am in my unity based app, I want to be able to launch a link to any site, but make it launch in the Oculus or Samsung browser while still with my goggles on.
When exiting the browser, I want to be back in my app.
The browser should launch in 2D mode, and continue so, unless the user goes stereoscopic.

Can this be done?

Thanks

    Hi,

    This is currently not supported behavior for deep-linking in our platform. We are working to release this functionality in the near future, but there is no current ETA on this.

    Hi @imperativity,

    Does the Platform.ShareToFacebook work as deep-link? I need something like that but to launch the web browser to authenticate on services like Google or Dropbox.. even for Facebook.. do you have any suggestion on this?

    Thanks,

    I believe so, but that leverages Facebook infrastructure and not Oculus platform. I do not have any suggestions for the type of behavior you are looking to implement until we launch a form of deeplinking native to our platform.
