Launch WebXR Links in Wolvic Browser

If Wolvic is installed on devices, webXR links launched via ArborXR Home will open in the Wolvic browser instead of the device's native browser.

Why Wolvic?

  1. Wolvic supports kiosk mode so users can't navigate away from the webXR experience and browse the web. Native browsers, such as Quest Browser and PICO Browser, do not support kiosk mode.

  2. On Meta Quest OS v55 and higher, it is not possible to enter "VR Mode" on the Quest browser when webXR links are launched via ArborXR.

Install Wolvic to Devices

  1. Download the Wolvic .apk.

  2. Upload the Wolvic .apk to your ArborXR Content Library.

  3. Install Wolvic to devices.

  4. Within Headset Experience > ArborXR Home > Managed Apps, uncheck the checkbox next to the Wolvic app. This will hide the Wolvic app in ArborXR Home. Users can directly launch the webXR Link shortcuts displayed in ArborXR Home to open the web link in a 'kiosked' window within Wolvic.
    ​

⚠️ On PICO Neo 3 and PICO G3, controllers are not rendering in the Wolvic browser so users are not able to interact with the webXR experience. This is not a bug with ArborXR and instead is a bug with the Wolvic browser. We have notified Wolvic of this issue and encourage others to do the same.
