Oculus Go Kiosk Mode

Is it possible to put the Go into a Kiosk mode, as in to only play a single application automatically upon turning on the device.

For apps a kiosk mode would add more value to the Oculus Go for businesses! For 360° video's we have developed a kiosk-style video player. 

EZ360 is an easy way to show 360 videos. It automatically starts a video when someone puts on the headset. When you hand the headset to someone else the video resets and the next person can view it from the beginning. If you have any questions, please let me know!

I am curious if anyone has got any reply to this? Seems strange that on this forum most questions raised are answered by Oculus staff except on this point... Anyone got and concrete NO/YES the feature is coming?

Until 2 days ago I've been using kiosk mode to run on the OculusGo only my app. I've used a 3rd party service which allowed me to do that.

Now after the latest OS update that Oculus have just released this option is not available anymore. You can't start your own Launcher..

So not only that they don't provide this service to their clients / early adopters - they are now actively BLOCKING it and forcing us to develop on other headsets instead..

Why did you block it?

We managed to create a minimal "KioskMode" Android Launcher.

Download KioskMode .apk here: http://oculusgokioskmode.undef.ch/

This launcher is a workaround since oculus still does not provide any function to implement a proper "kiosk mode".


I see they blocked this, was our option to do the next show. You guys looking at trying to do a fix or a lost cause?
