Auto startup app on oculus go

Hi, i need to develop an app for a museum with oculus go. I need to automatically start my application at 9:00 am at every day.
In a previous version with Gear 360 i do that creating a service apk that runs my apk. Than my app uses a server-client protocol to connect to a tablet and from that tablet i can control all the system with an app.

So, can I install that service on oculus go to? Or there is any way to run my app remotely from a tablet or computer or phone?

    @NinjaGaijin any progress on this update? It is a very important feature when developing for B2B. We have multiple clients that we would like to switch to Oculus GO and the feature is crucial for the easy use of the solutions.

    Also, do you plan to enable using Oculus GO without a controller? For many solutions starting an app and using gaze control is enough.

    Please let me know.

    Just as long as there is a simple override. 

    It would be nice to have an auto start option, but how long before someone messes up and you need to hardware reset. Or even more likely, some a*hole decides to create a virus or form of ransomware.

    So, yes to an option but it *MUST* have a simple way to override it and thus easily prevent any malicious behaviour or accidents!

    Did you manage to get around the auto start issue in the end? we have managed the tablet control once in our app but still have the remote to contend with.

    I am also very interested in any suggested solution to this issue. Teaching a classroom of VR newcomers to use the Oculus Go remote for the sole purpose of getting the app started is not ideal.

    Anyone figured out a solution for this yet? I'm also very interested in auto start for classroom use to save time getting started.
