All Oculus Quest developers MUST PASS the concept review prior to gaining publishing access to the Quest Store and additional resources. Submit a concept document for review as early in your Quest application development cycle as possible. For additional information and context, please see Submitting Your App to the Oculus Quest Store.
Unity offers three graphics tiers, Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3, to customize the built-in shader compilation and rendering quality, and they correspond to target platforms for which you’re developing apps.
Android apps developed in Unity, by default, load shaders from only Tier 2. Though shaders from Tier 1 and Tier 3 are built, which increases the build time, the app does not load any shaders from those tiers. The shader stripping mechanism lets you easily skip unused shaders from compilation to significantly reduce the player build time.
If you choose to strip unused shaders, at the time of shader compilation, the system starts by checking the Oculus device platform. If Android, it modifies the list of shaders to remove Tier 1 and Tier 3 shaders and compiles shaders from only Tier 2.
The shader stripping feature is only available for Oculus devices that run on Android and supported on Unity versions 2018.2 and higher.
