How to add test app to Oculus Home?

Hi guys,

I've created a few new test apps and wanted to add them to oculus home, such that it is more convenient to switch between these apps without having to take off the gear.

I remember I've already done that successfully a year ago, but I can't find any information, on how to do that, anymore.

I think it involved editing/adding a special json or xml file in/to some specific directory on the device, which contained entries which string should be shown and which app should be launched on the buttons in Oculus Home.

Is this still possible and does anyone have information on how it can be done?

Best regards,

Nico

I believe only submitted and approved apps will show in Oculus Home.

Though you can still launch manually from the phone and that should work.

Alright, thx.

So the feature to hack it into Oculus Home has been removed? Or do I remember it incorrectly?

So there is no way to check how my app looks/behaves in the oculus home until it is published?

No, I don't think so but please run the submission validator to find problems early.

How much does it cost to post a testDemo app in Oculus Home?

I need to test the redirecting to Samsung Internet browser/Samsung Store from my test app.
