Bring back livestreaming.
With v30 Go Live has been removed. Being able to livestream to Facebook is a big feature for many users. Please bring it back.
They removed it to focus on the casting, and stated that live streaming wasn't used very much compared to casting. That's a stupid reason in my book, I always streamed to my Facebook, having this removed really upset me cause now you have to record then upload.
Instead of removing the tool, you could fix the tool, improving image quality and allowing us to see the comments in a non-broken way.

bring it back. I already convinced a few of my friends into getting a headset because they saw me streaming, so it's a useful feature for facebook. no point in removing something if they benefited from it.
A group of my friends all agreed to buy a quest 2 after watching me stream on facebook live. It was really fun and now I cant do it :(

Please bring it back. It's one of the features that makes people choose oculus rather than other brands
Taking practical features(like GoLive) away and replacing them with ads. Yup...that's definitely a Zuckerberg move. Greedy *****.
Please bring back live streaming. It is a feature widely used for gaming and provides a key feature in using the Quest. I have had friends buy a quest from my live streams so it is a benefit to you as well. Ease return this feature to us. We enjoy watching others play and I enjoy live streaming. It has expanding our social interaction.

Please, please, please bring back livestreaming with v31! I have used livestreaming to introduce hesitant friends and coworkers to the marvel of Oculus. It is also proving to be a vital social component of VR. My daughter even recently had her first “social media” experience livestreaming to a community of dedicated In Death: Unchained users; the sheer delight it brought her, and me, was purely indescribable. Please reconsider the decision to remove livestreaming.

So many promotional opportunities Oculus will be missing out on if they insist on getting rid of the livestream. I know at least one or two people who actually BOUGHT a Quest after seeing one of my livestreams, and I know of several who bought Oculus apps after seeing me stream those. So getting rid of it is a lose/lose proposition. Please reconsider.

Im sure there was some technical reason, short coming, or possible misuse that caused the deprecation of this feature. However, it's a top notch feature that, while might not be growing at the rates that FB is used to, has the potential to really impact the industry as a whole if allowed the time and nurturing that it would need to prosper.

Please bring back live streaming. It has been very helpful when deciding on purchasing a game and for in game tutorials.

I can't even imagine why you would do this. Please bring it back

What a silly feature to remove. It’s a free advertising platform for you. Users who use this help get new users on the quest platform

Please bring back Live streaming and commenting being seen in the headset. I've been missing watching my favorite streamers who have beer waiting for the commenting feature to be reenabled. Removing live streaming all together is a bad idea.
We in the Wander VR travel club have used live-streaming to engage in virtual tours and group chats. Cutting off the live stream feature makes sharing our enthusiasm for VR travel so much more difficult. It’s a great disappointment as the alternative of casting will not allow real-time commenting or the opportunity for social engagement due to the lag time and cumbersome setting up processes. Why did this feature get removed? It takes all the joy out of what should be a shared experience and turns it into another isolating solo video game.
