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:

  • 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.
  • 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.
Please do your best to ensure all ideas are original and have not been previously submitted. Thanks for helping us improve Oculus Rift S and Rift!    
  1. Add 'Quick Launch' tab for Desktop Apps

    Right now, if I wanted to open say, Spotify, as a "pulled out" app, I have to, go to the Oculus Desktop tab, navigate my desktop, go to my windows start menu, open Spotify, then 'grab it out', then close Oculus Desktop.

    Lots of manual effort, very clunky.

    What I'd like is a tab to the left of Oculus Desktop called 'Quick Launch', where I can add my favorite apps (eg. Chrome, Spotify, Discord, Netflix) as a sort of "speed dial".

    Kind of like the Windows Start Menu, except it's within VR, and when I launch any of these apps…

  2. [Bug] Combo boxes don't show up for dragged apps (like Oculus Debug Tool visible hud options)

    The combo box is shown in the desktop view but not if I pulled the oculus debug tool out as a separate app.

  3. Pointer accuracy issues

    Where I'm pointing and where it's actually clicking are different. Maybe it's just me but it's a frustrating issue

  4. Make the green cross calibration easier to reach

    Whenever i put my rift back on, i always hit the menu button and quickly check to make sure its on perfectly for clarity. Now that button is hidden behind a couple of menus. It'd be great to see a button on the dash where the touch battery and headphone volume is. Somewhere easy to reach.

  5. Add quick Text / Macros

    It would be awesome to have some "quick access" buttons that you can define on your Dash.
    For example - Add a second slide-out row below the DASH menu.

    Click on a window that is popped out and click on an action that you defined.

    Example:
    Telegram / Skype / Whatsapp etc.
    - Add quick action to send message in current window:
    - "I'm in VR right now - calling you back in a few."
    - "Hey, I'm in Teamspeak / Discord if you want to talk - Enjoying VR right now!"

    To keep it simple:
    One row of items…

  6. Prevent window movement

    When Windows are pinned and Dash is opened up, the Dash AND pinned windows are "centered" around your current view.
    This messes up aligned windows in games.

    For example I have a window pinned in Elite Dangerous - right below my right side panel.
    I hit Dash while not looking dead straight and it recenters Dash AND the windows to match my orientation. This will cause the windows to be moved to an unwanted location.

    Please add a toggle-option to prevent recentering of DASH when opened up.

  7. Allow horizontal shifting for taskbar and keyboard, expand taskbar horizontally with additional tabs

    Taskbar and keyboard should not be pinned horizontally and should be allowed to be rotated around you as a center axis at the minimum to push it out of the way. Additional icons on taskbar are currently hidden in a non-obvious way; there is plenty of horizontal room for more icons and there's no reason the task bar's length should be fixed.

  8. Speed up home transitions between store, home, and friend home

    Right now it's ~7-10 seconds and there's simply no need for it to be that long.

  9. Button to hide pinned windows when in an app.

    It would be nice to have a button or customizable hotkey to quickly hide pinned windows when in an app. Windows are great in games like Elite Dangerous but occasionally get in the way of reading menus and other content.

  10. Add two-hand gestures to resize windows

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

  12. Buggy Multi monitor. Portrait multimonitor issues.

    Firstly I have an issue where I am unable to adjust the monitors once placed. When I grip them it simply creates a new monitor thats completely black so I have a copy of the monitor but blacked out with a huge performance hit.

    Secondly I have a portrait mode monitor which comes out as stretched into a forced portrait image.

  15. Add 2nd row of dash that act as window taskbar for oculus desktop

    since searching the app you need within oculus desktop is kinda hard (especially when the taskbar is hidden automaticly), adding window taskbar to the dash directly would allow faster app switching

  16. Control the radius boundry of the automatically curved screens.

    I'd like to be able to move the desktop windows farther away but still maintain a curved screen when desired.

  17. Automatically enter WebVR when site requests it.

    I use Sketchfab to look at 3d models in VR. I wish there was a way to just open them from a web browser in Home/Store/etc. instead of having to take off the headset, find the model, open in VR, and hope it works.

  19. Touch shortcut for keyboard show/hide

    Finding the show keyboard button is a pain. A method for showing/hiding the keyboard - say pressing B or Y - would be useful for quickly pulling it up.

  20. Move window control bar to the top

    The black control bar with window controls (pin, minimize, keyboard) is currently at the bottom of all windows.
    It is commonly hidden behind the dash panel when sitting down.

    Potentially move it to the top of the window and the controls to the center of the bar.
