It would be nice to be able to toggle Passthrough on-demand like you can with the Rift S to be able to quickly see the world around you without having to pull the headset off of your face.

How does this work? Is the headset touch too?

Will this be expanded upon before it moves out of experimental? It is a bit too sensitive right now. Simply adjusting the headset on my face triggers it for me sometimes. Even a sensitivity slider would be helpful.

Double-tapping works like magic. Fantastic and helpful feature. Also astonishing what the Quest can do with existing sensors and software update. Great job.

Nice work @Jimmy I have just posted a few improvements to this in a new request. Not recentering the experience, double tap sensitivity (@ Michael Perfeito), and no more black after to much distance from play space.

Glad to know our thoughts are being considered. Regardless of whether or not this feature was intended in the first place, this is still a great idea. Amazing job team Oculus!

Unfortunately, on demand passthrough does not work when Guardian is disabled.. Any thoughts on this?

this exists. you can go into settings and turn on an option (i cant remember wich one 😕 ) and then touch the side of your headset for passthrough.
