Lying Down mode was in version 53.0. People complained when it was removed. According to one Meta employee who has since refused to respond, Lying Down mode was going to be added back again soon after the developers worked on it some more (https://communityforums.atmeta.com/t5/VR-Experiences/What-happened-to-quot-Laying-Down-Mode-quot/m-p...). But now it is version 62.0 and I have had my Quest 3 headset for 5 months, and this feature still hasn't been added back. Please give us honest, detailed answers and ETAs or progress reports concerning this matter. Thank you.

I'm almost ready to give up on this. The ability to use the headset in a comfortable horizontal position is absolutely essential for anyone who wishes to use the quest for extended periods of time. Despite an abundance of complaints about this, as of version 60 Meta has still done nothing about it and doesn't appear to be doing anything about it.

Several people in the forum that you linked to have abandoned using their Quests headsets primarily because of this and I know a few people personally who have done the same. I don't wish to become one of these people but if nothing is done about this soon, I'm gonna switch to the Apple Vision Pro when it is released in the UK as Apple had the common sense to include this absolutely essential functionality from day one. Take note Meta! You are driving people away from your own platform!

100 percent.  I was using it to play various games while laying down, and then it just vanished. It's actually something I put a request in for all the way back in the days of Oculus Rift.

I was thinking that a good way to adjust the angle such as lying down vs standing up and everything in between is to make it so we have to hold:
Left Trigger Button + Right Trigger Button + X Button + A Button

Then we could drag the "screen" to our desired angle. So it could be 90 degree adjustment. It could be 45 degree adjustment. And it could be any angle we want, not just those two. Or it could be locked to those two because at least those two choices would be better than always having to be vertical.

The reason I suggest we hold these four buttons to drag the "screen" to our desired angle is because it's not that difficult to press all four of these buttons at the same time, and no game or app is going to have a control that requires these four buttons. It would be a Meta Quest specific hotkey combination.
