Bring Oculus Gallery to Quest2
On Quest1 there is a native Gallery app to view photos/videos. On Quest2 this app is missing and personal media can only be viewed through Oculus TV. The issue is with a large amount of files, OculusTV is impractical to use because you must scroll to the right to find files. Gallery allowed media to be grouped by directories. Files can be sorted in different ways with thumbnail and list view. For users with hundreds of photos and videos please either bring us Gallery or integrate the folder grouping and file sorting features into Oculus TV.
I just raised a complaint with the BBB. Hopefully with enough complaints they may give this a serious thought.
WhenI contacted support i was advised to vote for this. This cant be a democratic vote. This is a feature we paid for when we bought it . They simply cant take it away. And no we should not be required to vote if we need it or not. They cant take this feature away without providing a functional alternative.
I am very surised that oculus gallery was never supported I try to have the same results with oculus TV
but this apps is less friendly.
Pity that this application disappears
Hope you give to yus a better app than oculus TV in the future
Totally unusable not being able to connect to dropbox facebook or google drive to view my 360 vr images - this does not now work for the purpose i bought it - bring back gallery!!

I have a Quest 1 and cannot access my Dropbox,
Seriously WTF!???!!! You take away the gallery app and now require the TV app to view content, and have to use that TV POS app on the internet mind you!!! The gallery is so much easier for viewing 360 pics, 180 VR pics, and the video was ok but Skybox was better. Now there is no where we can easily view pics that we DON'T want to share thru the TV app publicly and have to wait for it to freaking load slowly thru Facebook???? I will be getting rid of my Oculus and going to another better VR headset...F U Facebook you are literally a POS!!!
Bring it back to the Quest 1 ! Do you pay interest in the people use of your product? lot of professionnals in design are using the quest gallery for their customers. YOU make me lose money if i can’t show the projects in VR! i bought an oculus to OCULUS, then Facebook bought it and make a **** of it!
Hello Oculus, any news on this? Very frustrating.
Bring Gaklery to Quest2!!!!!

Don't forget the exchange functionality via Dropbox etc. This allowed me to transfer VR pictures from my smartphone and PC to my Quest and my friends could easily access them from their Quest too. It was a fantastic way to exchange personal immersive pictures and videos. For me and some of my friends this was one of the main reasons to buy a Quest. I realy don't understand why Oculus is removing those fantastic features and not pushing it further...maybe in cooperation with VR camera companies like Insta360.
Why the **** this app is not in OQ2? I just buy this OQ2 with 256gb, because want put my pictures to vr device. I have 360 camera and only change watch pictures with photo folders.
there is 8gb video on my vr quest2 storage but i do not have any access to delete them 😤what the **** is going on???
Yes I need a decent 360° AND 3D viewing app on the Quest 2.

its simple, sideload one.
Gallery was my #1 app. That's where I could view my 3D photos and videos on Dropbox and even watch together with friends on their Go's. Now I don't have anywhere in the cloud I can store and watch my media alone or with friends. I've got a VR180 camera which is gathering dust and I'm cut off from my friends who still own a Go because Big Screen can't update the code for the Go.
I almost sent back my Quest 2. I've put my faith that someone will fix this. At least bring Gallery back into you have replaced the function with something else.
Not being able to view and manage images in the Quest 2 is just plain stupid

One of the main reasons I bought my first Quest (1) was, that I wanted a Headset to watch my personal stereoscopic 3D and 360 images and videos on. And to show this content to friends and family. So the Oculus Gallery was one of the most important apps right from the beginning. Also I could easily transfer content via Dropbox and share it with friends who had a Quest. I considered to buy the Quest 2, but without this very important functionality it does not fit my needs anymore and I will stick with Quest1.
It makes no sense at all to replace it with Oculus TV... Those are two very different Apps. It's like watching family pictures on my PC via YouTube... I don't know who came up with this idea but for the moment it's a big downgrade.. At least for Quest2.
Gallery was my favorite app. First it disappeared on my gear after Samsung updated my Galaxy so I purchased the Quest 2. It's awesome but incomplete without accessing my own content. I have thousands of photos and videos that I take and can't see any of them. Very disappointed.

Totally agree. Oculus Quest 2 deserves a good, versatile media gallery app, with decent features and user friendly interface for local content. The original Oculus Gallery would be an acceptable option, but the very best solution would be the return of the Samsung VR app, with its more than 20 different rendering types and straightforward user interface for local media. I've been using Samsung VR on my Gear VR since 2016 and it's a shame this "ancient" gallery technology is missing from my brand new Quest 2.

Agree... this app is a must... I am a quest2 user and I am missing it
It shouldn't have to be such a hassle migrating from GO using Galley to any other app on Quest 2 (TV? - I haven't even loaded it, and I'm aggravated already).
