Was hoping for weeks, asked the question on the meta q&a, asked youtube reviewers and reddit finally got a response from customer support. The Q3 will not have lying down mode. I had told a couple crippled friends of mine we might actually be able to game again, since we can't sit up for any extended period and can't stand atall. We've all been ready to buy it if it did, to our and by the looks of it, a bunch of people on reddits disappointment, no lying down mode for us.

VR is a wonderful experience, but it also overflows with elements that can fatigue the user's mind and body, which are unintended by content creators.
Lying down mode was a revolutionary feature that mitigated these elements and enabled a comfortable VR experience.
Meta should revise its underestimation of this feature and reconsider its benefits to bedridden users and average users.

Hey there Nekotyo,

I couldn't agree more. The situation is very frustrating. Please consider signing this petition to make your voice heard in the effort to bring back this important feature.

Just in case y'all weren't keeping up. It has been added back into the full functionality of the headset. Not an experimental feature for quest two and pro. Hopefully three will be coming soon but it probably needed more tweaking.

Hi everyone, Meta Quest v64 is releasing today and includes the settings for lying down for the Quest 3 (Quest 2 and Quest Pro received the capability already). 

The release takes a little time before it goes out to all headsets, but once you've got it, you can enable this feature by going to Experimental in Settings and selecting the toggle next to Use Apps While Lying Down.  

Once enabled, you can use this feature by laying down and then pressing and holding the menu button to reset your view.
