Oculus Rift S and Rift

Welcome to the Oculus Rift S and Rift feedback forum! This is the location to provide all your feature requests and ideas for the Oculus Rift platform. We're looking forward to hearing from you on the following areas of the product:

  • Companion App: This category is for feedback relating to the Oculus mobile app, specifically for how the mobile app interacts with the Rift platform.
  • Dash: Oculus Dash is the in-VR command center the pops up when you hit the Oculus button on your Touch controller. Dash allows you to access PC Desktop apps, your VR Library, and other system settings and services from anywhere in VR.
  • Desktop App: This is the out-of-VR Oculus application on your PC that allows you to do things like browse the store, manage your settings, and view your friends list, among other things.
  • First Party Apps: This category is for in-VR apps created by Oculus, like Medium and Quill.
  • General: Use this category for any feedback that doesn’t fit neatly into one of the other more specific categories.
  • Home: This is your customizable in-VR home where you can show off your unique style and decorations.
  • Store: The place where all VR app purchasing takes place. The Store category covers both the out-of-VR and in-VR stores.

  1. Option to disable/limit CPU hungry Dash features for users with low spec machines

    A number of users with under performing computers are having issues with Dash 2.0 taking away performance from VR games.

    If the CPU/GPU hungry features had an option to disable or limit Dash 2.0 impact it might help.

  2. Allow users to manually set height.

    If I want to sit when I'm interacting with Home, or with any of the demo programs, my POV is far too low. I'd like to be able to tell Oculus that I'm sitting and that I want my POV to be set for someone my height. Some games allow this, but I'd like it baked-in.

  3. Wristwatch Button Customization + Keyboard key macro on the wrist

    --Wristwatch Customization

    The wristwatch is still an experimental thing, it is good, but to be really useful it should have a way to customize the functions, size and position of the buttons.
    Each person has a priority for each type of function they want easy access.

    Here is a reddit post I made exemplifying the MIC ON/OFF as the main button because we don't have a simple way to push to talk and/or turn the mic on and off.
    **Notifications are extremly easy to access, making the function useless in the wristwatch

  4. Extend screentshots to support 360 capture

    You have support for screen capture in the dash, but can we please extend that to produce a 360 image. Then allow us to import them as backgrounds in home. I also have a vested interest, that I would like people to be able to use them in my Jigsaw 360 game.

  5. Let pass through camera on Rift S to see my physical keyboard.

    I can't do any of the keyboard shortcuts for photoshop, and won't be able to fully have any productivity on virtual desktop. The only thing I"m missing is the keyboard. HTC vive has a program called "FragmentVR" that allows a window. Even better would be to identify the keyboard, and show a photogrammetry version of the keyboard with clearer keys, and shadow of the hand overlapping it.

  6. Allow us to pick the colourful avatar skins from the old Home.

    The new avatar system obviously still supports the old avatar materials, we should be able to pick them.

    I miss my old avatar :(

  7. Show wrist-watch even when Dashboard isn't up

    The wrist-watch is a cool way to see the time, but it currently only shows up when the Dashboard is up, and Dashboard already shows the time. It would be a lot more useful to be able to be able to see the time even when the Dashboard isn't up.

  8. Always show nickname instead of real name

    It's difficult to remain anonymous while streaming VR using Oculus software because your real name is shown in multiple places with no way to hide it. A simple toggle should replace your real name everywhere with the nickname you've set.

  9. music controls for Spotify and other apps built into dash/menu screen

    It would be convenient to have a little panel in the dash with music player controls for popular streaming services and local files, much like you get on the lock screen for your phone or in the Windows 10 Game Bar - much more convenient than having to pull up the desktop and find the app window just to pause or skip a track.

  10. Integrate smartphones into dash.

    I hate having to remove my HMD to check for calls or texts. A virtual big phone with a mirror screen of my phones actual screen would be awesome.

  11. Custom settings for streaming

    Hello, please add an option to set custom settings such as resolution, bandwith for Facebook streaming.

    With a poor DSL connection it's not possible to share without using OBS

    Regards.

  12. Option to disable to dimming on applications when opening dashboard.

    Many artists use applications in VR to simulate travelling to real locations in order to practice their drawing skills (usually via a virtual desktop overlay running photoshop), but currently to do so, we need to use paid third party tools such as OVRdrop, as the dashboard and native virtual desktop dims the background notably. Having an option to disable or even adjust the amount the dashboard dims the background by would be a huge help to many oculus users who use the dash's native virtual desktop as often as I do.

  13. Option to disable fade in/out from Oculus menu to/from game

    I dislike the slow fade in/out from/to a game to Oculus Dash when entering/exiting Oculus Dash. It used to (a few months ago) be an instantaneous transition from the game to Oculus Dash, but now there is a fade in/out, which in my opinion is unnecessary and just takes up time. I'd very much like it if I could disable the fade in/out and simply have an instantaneous transition.
    Specifically I'm talking about games which Oculus Dash doesn't overlay, so it's an instantaneous transition from the game to the white grid room with Oculus Dash.

  14. Add two-hand gestures to resize windows

    Grabbing a screen with the second hand should allow you to resize the window horizontally or vertically.

  15. Allow native streaming to Twitch.TV via Dash

    Rift can already stream to Facebook via Dash, so it should be possible to add a button to allow us to stream to Twitch.TV (of course we would need to connect our Twitch account to Oculus).

    Additionally, with the recent Facebook Portal and Amazon Alexa collaboration, I don't see why Oculus can't collaborate with Amazon Twitch.TV (since Amazon owns them).

    This would be a very useful feature that would instantly increase the brand awareness of the Oculus platform !

    Thanks !

  16. Could we get a warped virtual keyboard that could be docked to Dash?

    Strange that nobody seemed to mention this before, but for me it's pretty annoying, that since the keyboard is a straight rectangle, and Dash is a warped one, it will have overlaps if trying to bring them to usable distance. Its visually displeasing.
    Every now and then the keyboard skin is changed, which is fine I guess, but focus on the elephant in the room, that the keyboard and dash are both input devices occupying the same space, and are incompatible.

    Below is a quick photoshop hack if the concept isn't clear

  18. Ahhh sweet transparency.

    I'd like vd pullout panels with transparency so I can game and watch videos at the same time or keep up with my stream etc easier without the pinned window getting In the way.

    I'd also like to pin windows and still be able to use them (as an option) but only by touch not laser.

  19. Add option to disable headset pointer when using Xbox Controller when playing non-VR games through Virutal Desktop

    When I try to play a game that uses the Xbox controller when I'm using Dash's Virtual Desktop to create a virtual monitor, it automatically assumes I want to use my headset as a pointer and cancels out my directional input from the controller.

    I don't see an option to disable this and only use the input from the Xbox controller anywhere. I just want to use my Rift S as a display, not as an input device.

  20. So you have your default Home, but with the Rift S, I want to use this as my Home office, I need a default Office as well as Home. Template?

    I bring up my three monitors and the keyboard is good enough to use this as my Office, I can move my monitors around, but the Home template isnt really Office friendly, be good to have either a template I can select for Office. Plus options to record the session, I know there is oculus mirror, but to be able to record next to the option tto take a screenshot.
