    For meta quest 2 and I have deleted images off the headset with the files app, but “recently captured media” still shows on the meta app on my phone. How do I delete it from the phone?

      Hi Josh, after deleting an image on your headset it should automatically be removed on you mobile app the next time you synchronize it with your Quest 2.
