Companion App: Battery Notification + Refresh
Two things that could make the companion app better:
1) An alert to my phone when the battery is charged to X%
2) The ability to refresh my view of the headset. When I look at the settings of my headset in the current app, I can see the current battery percentage, but if I check again, I have to force-quit the app to see updated information.

Will the headset show on the app when it is powered off and charging? From my understanding, you should have power off when charging so it wouldn’t be able to connect with the app anyway.
Great idea. Make it so

yes! This is a feature i really hope gains traction and that we'll see in a future app update.
Currently you can get an overview of the battery charge status by going into the Oculus app -> Settings and waiting a second with the headset in range for it to connect. This is nice, means I can check without having to put the headset on or move it at all from its charging place.
However, I think it would be really convenient if the app could push a notification when the Quest is done charging. The app could of course ping the headset at a defined (long) interval for a status update to keep power draw low if that is a concern.
