The Insta360 App should not have been rejected on the Oculus Quest.
I am a 360 and 180 video and photo enthusiast. I recently purchased an Insta360 Evo camera and was very disappointed to find that the Insta360 App is not available on the Oculus Quest, but it is available on the Oculus Go.
The Insta360 App allows photos and videos to be viewed and uploaded wirelessly between camera and the Oculus Go headset.
See the following in depth YouTube video to see this...
This App gives immediately feedback on what you have photographed.
I wrote to Insta360 and they told me that Oculus declined to give permission for the App to be in the Quest App Store. They hinted that this is on the grounds that the Go is more for media consumption and the Quest is about gaming.
I was a Go owner but I upgraded to the Quest and as a result of this I am now disappointed.
So Oculus please reconsider your policy for photography and video on the Quest.
Oculus’ App curation policies are appraised here...
I already think the games are stupid for the Oculous, to **** cartoonish for me, I want realism and immersion. The least you oculous can do is accept this app. I'm sure more people would vote If they knew about this petition.
I own two Oculus quest and I want to watch my 3d videos recorded on Insta 360 OneX . Stop preconditioning Oculus for games only. This is the best standalone VR available and should be able to do what the user wants and not what Facebook says. This is applicable for Google Earth VR, Insta360 app, Gala, etc
Please add insta 360 evo app to quest .

This is **** oculus
I want to buy a second Quest but this is part of the reason I have not yet done so.
Please let it happen
Can not believe Oculus holds back om such a simple feature on the Quest! Just make it happen.
Definitely agree the app should be available on quest. Oculus need to rethink their strategy.
it suck*s. It must work, OCULUS,
+1 for insta360 in the Oculus Quest

Es una vergüenza que la mejor cámara 3D del 2020 no sea compatible con el visor más vendido!
I agree with the OP. It's absurd this app is available on the Go and not the Quest.

I'm developing education curriculum on the Quest and using 180 3d video. I've purchased 7 Quest headset and need the capability manage Insta360 footage. PLEASE add their apps to the store!

Does anyone have a work around? I tried posting a 180vr video on YouTube, but that wouldn’t work either.
Odd Solberg commented
Im in the same boat!Just bought a insta360 evo, crazy that i must downgrade from my Oculus Quest to a Oculus Go to be able to enjoy my footage.
At least Oculus should let us use the Oculus GO application on the Oculus Quest, but that does not work either =(
