Hi everyone! I’m Reina Shah and I currently manage Entertainment content at Oculus. Prior to joining Oculus, I spent 10 years in gaming- from financing FB and mobile game companies, to user acquisition for social and mobile titles, and most recently I managed BD for Unity’s Cloud Services division. 

Fun Fact: I’ve completed at least one hike in 46 different countries.

Hello, I have couple of questions,
First i submitted to Oculus start program since February and still many to get early access to  Oculus Go but still no replay of acceptance or rejection to my Oculus start program form, how much will it take since i am right now in my late stage of developing my game and my main goal was to publish it for Oculus Go ?
2nd question is can we use consumer version of Oculus go for developing?

3rd question is whats is the current android version (API level) of Oculus go and does it support direct wifi connection between 2 Oculus go for MP game use?

Thanks

    • 1) Hmmm... You should have received a response from our team regarding your Oculus Start application. I'll ping our team internal about your status, but please also reach out to oculusstart@oculus.com. The Start team will be able to pull up your application and provide an update.
    • 2) Yes, the consumer version of Oculus Go can be used as a devkit. The devkits are the same as consumer devices.
    • 3a) You probably want the game to be compatible with Gear VR devices as well as Oculus Go. You can use the mobile hardware stats page to figure out what is the minimum version of the API to support: https://developer.oculus.com/hardware-report/mobile/ I would say 26 is a safe bet.
    • 3b) It's possible to make networked multiplayer games. See Settlers of Catan for example.

Is it planned to create more starter templates/projects for both unity and unreal?

Also, in case of unreal samples, I'd like to see the installation process get more simplified, since for now all the examples are living in oculus own fork of the engine on github. Would be cool to see them published to the unreal marketplace.

I just saw this notification and I want to take the moment to say that as a promoter of OCULUS in Latin America, I feel completely alone in terms of support from the company.
I come headsets through my YouTube channel FREEVR, currently the largest in Latin America and not just nobody listens .. I have tried to contact me with 10 email addresses and nobody is able to answer me ...
My current team, a CV1 is about to stop working .. it's the second one I buy, now I buy an oculus GO and I keep selling OCULUS ..
I need support from you, the same support that other promoters receive on YouTube. I keep spending money from my pocket to generate content.

please listen to me, pay attention to my request, it's a job.
My email is Freevrchannel@gmail.com
