Can you open a link to another app in the Oculus store from within your app?

Just wondering is there a method for opening the Oculus store on a specific app download page from within our app? The custom app is built in Unity.

    Hi,

    Welcome to the Oculus Developer Forums.

    I have confirmed that this is allowed behavior for applications published on the Oculus Store.

    Let me know if you have any further questions.

    Can you point me in the direction of the API call? Maybe I wasn't clear, from within my Gear VR app I want to click a button which opens the Oculus store in VR on the store listing of a different app, all without having to leave VR and take off my headset.

    I hear you there---I thought you were asking if this was allowed behavior on our store. We don't have any documentation on this from what I can see, but I'll ask around and see if there is anything I can source for you for an example/API call.

    Hi, we are looking to put some documentation together regarding this ability to link to a store page for another application within the current application being used. I will update you guys when this goes live. Sorry for the delay here!
