Oculus Go: Lockdown to one app

sourcenitysourcenity Posts: 11 Oculus Start Member
Hi everybody,

a client is sending out Oculus Go to schools for demonstration. They would like to lock the device down such that only one preinstalled, non-store (sideloaded) app is playable, or even better, simply just starts when the device is used.

Has anyone done something similar? Is it possible, and if so, how?

Thanks,

Philip

    I need as well.  Any help?
    Even autoloading and limiting to Skybox or Plex would work for me.
    Need to play back network stored video files.

    NinjaGaijin thank you for your response. Has there been any feedback from the dev team?

    A related question is whether it is possible to show a sideloaded app in the main library (i.e. with images and all, not only as an item in a list). Thanks!

    That is not possible. For an app to show up in the main library, it has to be downloaded from the store.

    @oculus_gabor Yes, I am aware that it is not currently possible. My question was whether you would consider changing it to be possible in the future.

    @NinjaGaijin Do you have any feedback on my "lockdown" request? Is there anywhere else I might go to request this feature and/or get additional information?

    Thanks,
    Philip

    I also like to distribute Oculus devices (GO \ QUEST) for education with one app.
    Is it possible to have a default app to run on startup?
