  • Companion App: This category is for feedback relating to the Oculus mobile app, specifically for how the mobile app interacts with the Oculus Go platform.
  • Core Software: All Oculus Go main menu, navigation, and settings feedback should be left under this category.
  • First Party Apps: This category is for in-VR apps created by Oculus, like Venues and Rooms.
  • General: Use this category for any feedback that doesn’t fit neatly into one of the other more specific categories.
  • Store: The place where all VR app purchasing takes place.


  1. 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 :(

  2. I was watching the local news

    The control my local weather man has on the radar via green screen is unreal. He just touches a blank wall behind him. He also has a clicker gadget in his off hand. I genuinely think this could change gaming. He even has pop-up menu control

  3. Oculus news tab in dash

    Creating a tab / panel in dash for news about Oculus or VR in general would be a great way of informing consumers about latest news and featurettes.

    For example say OC7 is ongoing show highlights or even full streamed keynotes from the Convention through the Dash for people to get informed while in VR itself.

  4. 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 !

  6. 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.

  7. "Now Playing" app prompt keeps intruding other apps/windows, please stop

    Something that is increasingly testing my patience is the fact the "Now Playing" prompt window keeps moving itself in front of or even straight up replacing my primary window in my VR dashboard. I keep grabbing it and moving it out of the way but it keeps. coming. back.

    If I move it somewhere it should STAY there, I don't need it re-centering itself over what I'm currently working on every 5 seconds.

    The dashboard should either respect where I put it or put the Now Playing app controls in a designated spot on the toolbar

  8. Give us the option of choosing versions of older oculus software .

    Hello, I say thank you to read my opinion.

    Be straight to the point,I never like to change my system environment, no matter what risks are exist in old software.

    I reinstalled software 10 days ago,I've struggled to prevent "Fatal error".
    Definitely, the cause is new imposition of force to connect oculus server.
    I don't necessarily connect the internet any time.
    I understand the circumstances what relates your business,
    but, this restriction is so inconvenience.
    By the way,no one can guarantee to a company goes well forever.
    It is a tragic event if 400$ VR head set become a decorative…

  9. 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.

  10. Bring back center

    I don't know why this was removed. Now after you create a boundary you have to set the app to center. After the boundary is made and you put the rift s on in any other orentation other that your center, you have to recenter the app again. I also have the quest and you can easily hold the Oculus button for 2 seconds to recenter. you can't do this with rift s.

  13. 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

  14. Remap panel controls for Oculus Dash

    The current method of right clicking on a Virtual Desktop panel (hold B/Y) is a bit unintuitive, and I was thinking it might make more sense to have panel controls be activated through a click of the Thumbstick instead, allowing B and Y to behave as right click directly.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  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.
