Currently you can't use Quest in the dark at all. Technically 3DOF tracking should work (just like the Go), so people can watch videos even in a dark environment. Just add a notification like "Tracking error. Would you like to use Quest in 3DOF mode?"

I'm actually shocked this isn't already in place. Id say this was merely an oversight, but there is a video of an Oculus rep stating that this very feature was already in place. For it not to be, means it Oculus 'was' aware of this need, and pulled it for some reason.

Should be an option for this not just night mode. I. E. Playing videos on airplanes.

3DOF mode would also be useful in bus transit or while someone else is driving !

Also, let us use only one controller for media viewing in the dark (or light). If we leave a controller in another room, we get the sitting guardian wall violation/red marks all over the media we're watching. There should be another mode (roomscale, sitting, and media) that is just minimal 3dof tracking with no guardian like on the Go.

Yeah this was very disappointing. I don't need the controllers to work to watch Netflix.

Yes Oculus - please add this! I would like to watch 3D movies in bed at night.
