Did you mean: 

can no longer send (paste) text from phone to headset

in the Meta Quest app (iOS in my case) when you select your VR device, under the section "Manage your device", there used to be THREE options, the last one being something like "keyboard text". in there, you could copy text from your phone and paste it into the app, and it would send the text into the currently open text edit box INSIDE your VR headset. like if i have my password manager on my phone i could PASTE it into my headset.

that third option is now MISSING, now there is only "App Library "and "Headset settings".

Where did the "paste text into headset" option go???

Piggybacking this, the feature seems to have been removed for no apparent reason. This was the primary way I entered site passwords into the device, and would love to get it back.

is anyone else seeing this?

Personally, I haven't heard anything about an update removing this feature. I'd love to know if anyone else is running into this issue, would love to let our engineers know as fast as possible!

i HAVE heard others complain, and only about the Quest 3. google around and you'll see.

Hey @davecotter, I wanted to follow up and see if you were still having this issue or if the latest update solved it. Would love to get visibility on this if it's still an issue.

I have had no help at all from any "specialist team", and no, the latest update still does not have the extremely useful feature that i was depending on.

have YOU PERSONALLY looked at YOUR app to see if the feature is there? can you SEE that it is there? do you actually see it in your app? this is a yes-or-no question.

I haven't mentioned a specialist team, was this something that support had mentioned when you submitted a ticket?

The latest update solved a lot of issues some users were facing, but I remembered your thread and wanted to follow up with you to see if this was fixed as well. It looks like @JayDeeDee's information was correct in this case.

I did ask about this specifically after your reply and was informed this is a feature that is no longer available as of the v60 PTC.

this .. feature .. is no longer available as of ... v60

why on earth are you removing such a vital feature? how do we now copy and paste text into the headset?

you also removed "phone notifications inside headset".

why on earth are you REMOVING perfectly good, very much in use, very VITAL features? What business sense does this make?

Hi, just adding on that this is an important feature, and I ask Meta to reconsider removing it.
Also I would kindly ask Meta reconsiders its stance on removing useful features "to bring them back better later" (such as it's supposed to be the case with the Chromecast support), and just keep the features that exist there, and build on top of them.
