Oculus Go Kiosk Mode
Ability to run 1 app from start. Option to disable controller calibration.
And now the oculus go is gone. We'll never find out how it would perform in a kiosk situation. Just more devices for the trash. Shame on you oculus!
should include reports on how much time the video was played..also remote downloading of videos

Meanwhile I stopped waiting for a Kioskmode from Oculus. This is not a reliable company for business use cases. I found the PicoVR Headsets:
Here're the most important facts:
- business only! you can't order at amazon, but they send me a testdevice within days
- here're the docs: http://us-dev.picovr.com/document/doc
- android based
- shipping ready for kiosk mode
- the pico g2 4k has a great display, much better than the go
- SDK for unity
- responsive technical support
This is how my device works now: starts up, when usb is powered. Direct after boot it launches my app. If the app would crash, it launches the app again (=home launcher). If user presses Power Button or Home Button, nothing happens. It's impossible for the user to exit the app running in the headset . It's a perfekt kiosk mode for VR. I programmed a special button combination, to enter the great settings menu (android 2D Settings) which gives you access to nearly all settings possible.
This is a must have, I have many customers waiting for this. Oculus, you're our only hope !
waiting too for this mode!!!!! ;)

We think simulations running on Oculus Go or Quest can have a broad audience in education, cultural events etc. but it does need a Kiosk mode!! And I agree with other that Oculus for Business sounds great but is too expensive for this. As a case in point at VR Lab we recently developed a simulation of a WWII Allied Forces dugout in the City of Nijmegen in the Netherlands. This simulation was used in an exhibition that ran throughout September. As we were not assisting the audience ourselves we needed a solution that was as simple as possible. As we also required moving around in the virtual dugout we chose the Quest. Though this worked out well, the volunteers that ran the exhibition had various issues, most of which would have been tackled with a proper Kiosk mode.

We also need this feature. Asking oculus via forum/mail/twitter since 2017 but no solution yet.

We create apps for museums and schools and currently some customers don't start VR projects, because it's too complicated. And they're right: Starting 10 devices, explaining which app to start, long press the lower button, "not this, this one! but don't press it again... where are you now?"
The upcoming "oculus for business" is no real option. Good for big companies, but usage for culture, education, etc. the higher price and annual fees are too high.
