Thanks everyone for your participation this month! The team gathered up your questions and now we've, got answers. Without further ado, let's dive into them:

1) Full Question: When are we going to be able to remove demos and trials from our own App Library? - @Sporefreak

Demos and trials are a fantastic way to introduce friends to get started in VR. At this time, there's no timeline on when customers will be able to remove them from the app library, but we can understand that having more options to manage your app library would be ideal.

2) Full Question: Why cant we remove the "People" "Store" and "Feed" apps from the universal menu bar? @Sporefreak 

We're currently tracking the interest in having more options to pin your favorite apps on the universal menu bar. We'll be sure to include this thread in our report.

3)  Full Question: Does Meta plan to create it's own core apps (3D photo viewer, it's own augments, cinema etc) or is the plan to leave that to 3rd parties? It got rid of a photo viewer and cinema and hasn't replaced them.@Hiro_Protag0nist 

We want to build a more open Metaverse and believe that third-party developers will play a crucial role in helping us achieve this goal. While we may develop some core apps in the future, we recognize the importance of fostering an ecosystem that allows for innovation and creativity from external developers.

4)  Full Question: 
Similar to my last question - accessories - will there be new colours/designs of the Quest 3? Earphones? Peripherals - guns, haptic vests and anything else you can think of?

Or is that also being left to 3rd parties?@Hiro_Protag0nist 

This is a fantastic idea! We currently have first-party accessories for Quest 3 that offer facial interfaces and come in orange and blue. We're definitely interested in exploring more options for variety and colorful styles and peripheral accessories for your headset. Keep an eye out for updates.

5) Full Question: Will there be a way to delete the Meta horizons worlds avatar. Not the avatar picture in the headset menu or the meta site avatar picture, but the complete avatar for those that are never going to use the horizon worlds app?@oculusness 

Currently, there are no plans to allow the deletion of the Horizon World avatar, but we're always working to make Horizon Worlds a fun experience, so we hope you’ll try it out in the future.

Those are our Top 5 for the month. If your question(s) came in after June 14th, please ask them again next month! Thanks everyone!

When are we going to be able to remove demos and trials from our own App Library?

I don't particularly care to see an app I played for 20 minutes without purchasing, hated it, and now have to be stuck looking at it when I cant decide what to play. I mean, we don't see refunded apps listed. And surely there is a way to track games we have trialed without showing them in our library.

Also, I know I have 1 minute left to trial an app, I don't need notifications about that every other week. 1 minute is not enough time to do anything except change my movement type. Please stop notifications for trial apps if there is less than 10 minutes or something.

Hi @neurodivrgent  - does Meta plan to create it's own core apps (3D photo viewer, it's own augments, cinema etc) or is the plan to leave that to 3rd parties?  It got rid of a photo viewer and cinema and hasn't replaced them.

Big PC, all the headsets, now using Quest 3

I had another question I almost forgot about.

Why cant we remove the "People" "Store" and "Feed" apps from the universal menu bar?

They should/could be under their own pop up menu instead of 3 different spots. It would be nice to pin more than 2 items of our own. Or at least have one of them a folder that opens when clicked that lets us put multiple apps there instead of browsing through the library of all apps. Much like how mobile phones let you have a folder for apps.

 Hi, I had a question.
If you plan to add new features to the UI in Meta Quest 3. I'm particularly missing two options:

  1. A mode where you can choose whether the screen is curved or not ("uncurved mode").
  2. A function that allows hiding the borders in applications ("hide apps borders").

I am attaching a picture to better illustrate what I mean. Being able to disable these borders would provide a more immersive experience.

Best regards!

Quest 2 & Quest 3: If you're interested in joining our MVP program, reach out to the team!

Question about hardware, with the rumoured Quest 3 lite about to be released soon, how about a Quest 3 plus with basic eye tracking ? there is a start-up company selling a add on kit for both the quest 2 and quest 3 for about $150 but that includes development costs and says the components only cost about $10!!! I'm sure a lot of people would like forvated rendering for an extra $50 to $100 on top of the normal price of the quest 3 headset for it to be built in ? this would really push graphics to the next level.!
