I am the technical director for FIVARS, the first Canadian Festival of International Virtual and Augmented Reality Stories. Been trying to contact Google Spotlight Stories in a number of ways to discuss showcasing Pearl, and Help. If you are interested please let me know.

My email is jcellsworth at gmail dot com.

Why is Spotlight Stories not supported on the Moto X Pure Edition (3rd Gen)???
 
I just discovered the Moto X Pure 15 is not a supported device for Spotlight Stories. Somehow that just seems so very wrong.

Realizing your son's love for is unexplainable!, like poetry you've read them all, the one that is ultimate to me is that of my son!, he is the poem that a poet has yet not written🐻

I have a story (book) called the Incredible Miss Vicky and I think it would make a great spotlight story.
How can I get started with getting in contact with the people who can make it happen?

I am looking for developers to help make an interactive ios and android app and also to create a digital experience of the book for google stories.  I am just a writer and cannot create these things, so i need artists and developers.

I am looking for information on the Story Dev Kit. As usual I missed the google I/O ticket drawing and this is something right up my alley. If anyone had an opportunity to chat this the spotlight team could you share information please.

I wish they had this app for all smartphones. They can use the compass and the accellometer as a substitute for a gyroscope.

I've experienced the HELP story on my friends phone, but I can't download it on my own (HTC M9). Download always fails after a certain %. I tried various Wi-Fis, and even used data. I also tried the "Force Close" trick, but to no avail. I have enough space.

Any other suggestions that might assist? Honestly I'm down to try anything. HELP was that good.

Sorry about all the trouble! We are very close to shipping an update with
new stories and fixes to a bunch of these download issues. I will ping the
thread when it's up on the Playstore.
Thank you!

Problem with 'Duet' on my 2nd gen Moto g.

After totally failing to download 'Help', I tried something smaller - 'Duet'. This get as far a4s a butterfly which repeatedly loops from top left to screen centre and our the top of the screen. Sometimes it doesn't even get this far.

Now I find the file can't be deleted either.

Is there a Delete key somewhere?
Has anyone run 'stories' on a moto g successfully?
Is it worthwhile staying with this seemingly interesting app or just wait for v1.1?

Mickey dances with 7 different colorful backgrounds. Touch him on the belly to transition to next scene.

I was finally able to download the help story after reading some of the tips on here. I even watched it a minute or so. Now this morning all of my stories say your phone is not compatible! What the hell Google. This app has a mind of its own. Very frustrated!

Google owned Moto when they made the Turbo. They do not now. I bet that's why...

Has anyone else has trouble downloading the Help story? Every time I've tried it so far, it gets to ~2% and gives up with this error message. I have great WiFi signal and I've successfully downloaded/watched other stories. It's just this one that's not working.

Edit: The entire message says "There was a problem installing 'HELP'. Please try again later."

As it turns out, that was just due to a slow WiFi connection at work. When I got home, I tried clearing the app data again and downloading again, and it worked fine.
