The ManageXR Home Screen is a customizable app launcher for your end-users. It enables you to streamline the user experience and lock a device to your approved applications.

All Devices

You can customize the shortcuts and the display language on the Home Screen toolbar by:

  1. Heading to the Configurations tab and selecting a configuration

  2. Device Experience

  3. Click ManageXR Home Screen

  4. Settings Toolbar

From here, you can toggle off/on desired toolbar settings, change your display language, and edit your Admin PIN.

💡If you're not using the ManageXR Home Screen, and your end users need to access these settings, you can still do so by using our Shortcut Menu for Kiosk Mode.

Gaze Control

With gaze control, users can select an item on the Home Screen by hovering over it for 1 second. Gaze-based selection unlocks VR without controllers by allowing the headset to act like a controller, giving you the ability to target and launch content or menus using a headset pointer. Gaze control is especially convenient when delivering immersive content that doesn't require user input, like a 360 video. To activate gaze-based selection, your controllers must disconnected, sleeping, or powered off (taking the batteries out works as well).

💡Only available on Pico 4 and Quest 2 (Quest 3 coming soon!)

Hand Tracking - Meta Quest Devices Only

🛑 This feature is in beta and is not officially supported on the ManageXR Home Screen. Results may vary from firmware version to firmware version.

To set up Hand Tracking on the ManageXR Home Screen for Quest devices:

  1. Go to the Meta Quest settings

  2. Click on Movement Tracking

  3. Toggle on Hand Tracking

💡 To set up Hand Tracking, your device must not have Kiosk Mode/Home Screen enabled in ManageXR. Here's a guide to temporarily disabling kiosk mode.

After turning on Hand Tracking for the first time, a brief Meta tutorial will launch. You can now use Hand Tracking on the ManageXR Home Screen. Check out Meta's Getting Started with Hand Tracking guide for a list of gestures and other helpful information.

Passthrough Mode - Meta Quest Devices Only

Users on Quest 2, 3, and Pro devices can toggle on/off passthrough mode from their Home Screen toolbar.

⚠️ Double tapping the side of the headset for passthrough will not toggle passthrough in ManageXR Home Screen/Kiosk Mode

Passthrough mode enabled

Passthrough mode disabled
