Video Overview of Direct Publishing to Oculus Store for Oculus Go Distribution

Last week, we gave you detailed instructions and screenshots for the new incredibly efficient direct Oculus Go publishing methodology. This week, we’ve put together a video to show you how to use the feature. See below for video and transcript.

You’ll definitely want to use Direct Publishing, particularly if you’re using InstaVR to:

  • Push out updates to your Go apps. This will save you time as you utilize Release Channels to update your apps directly from InstaVR, without having to also go to the Oculus Store web page.
  • Using a single app to prototype your Oculus Go builds. You don’t need to create a new app each time in the Oculus Store, just use one app + direct publishing to view your prototype.
