Thank you so much @Tony PH Lin  , this will make debugging Android applications so much more helpful.

I was trying this out earlier today with the 5.1 sample project.  The ability to rely on this rather than having to enable/disable the OpenXR Android plugin for testing purposes will be a useful asset.

The one issue I do have at the moment is with Wrist Tracker debugging.  At the moment, Wrist Tracker integration seems to work in packaged shipping builds when I managed to make a package in Unreal and transfer it to and launch from my XR Elite headset, but I can't seem to see Wrist Trackers work in the Unreal Engine editor (the rings don't move). 
Do wrist trackers only work in packaged builds, or is there a missing component that I need to enable in order to see trackers work in the editor?

Thank you so much once again in advance!

Here are some updates for the feedbacks.

1) For wrist tracker support, yes it's working in packaged builds but it's still not fully working under Unreal Editor. We will put this as future improvement plan.

2) Also we clarify the use case of wrist tracker running on Vive Focus 3/ Elite via PC Streaming may need an upgrade version of VBS/VS (current public version may not work), which these release schedule are under plan and will keep posted.

Thanks.

I am trying this new plugin version with Vive Focus3 using VBS 1.11.8c beta, SteamVR 1.26.6 and UE 5.1 to use OpenXR in a Windows PC application. Unreal does not recognise the connected headset, VR Preview is not available. I tested the sample application and other OpenXR projects (SteamVR plugin disabled) as well.

Also tried previous Vive OpenXR 1.6.0.r2 version and older UE4.27 version with no success.  SteamVR set as default OpenXR provider. 

At this moment there is no way to get the headset recognised by Unreal through OpenXR , only if SteamVR plugin is enabled. Please advise how to setup OpenXR for Unreal 5.1 to run Windows PC application. 

Thanks.
