    Hey guys,
    I am working on VR Game for multiple devices like vive, focus, rift, quest.
    I want to use Keyboard for typing (for multiple language).
    Is there any way to display and use native keyboard (keyboard used by VR environment) of these vr devices?

    In general, no. You'll need to either make your own keyboard (using Canvas) or find an asset that does this for you.

    Thanks for the reply.
    HTC Focus and HTC Quest run on Android OS. Can't we open android native keyboard in these devices using native call?

    I don't have any experience with those. Maybe, but I rather doubt it. Oculus Go runs on Android OS too, and you certainly can't do it there.
