Oculus Rift S and Rift

Thanks for helping us improve Oculus Rift! We're now taking all suggestions on our Oculus Community Forums. All suggestions, votes, and comments from here have been migrated, along with matching accounts. We appreciate you taking the time to share, and are looking forward to seeing you on our broader community.

As a reminder, topics are labeled in the following areas:
  • 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. Red Shift App API or Windows Night Shift Integration

    Windows 10 now has the ability to turn off blue light on the display at a specified time or at sundown. It's called "Nightshift". This removes blue light allowing us to get sleep despite using backlit devices. The Oculus needs to include this same functionality so that we don't have to quit a couple hours before bedtime just to get quality sleep and not mess up our circadian rhythm.

  2. 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

  3. The Rift Should Allow for a Longer HDMI and USB cable connection, even repeaters don't work.

    I've spent way too much money on trying to improve the cord management situation and nothing works. The Rift cables are too short and not even a repeater fixes the problem, it just won't detect it unless it's directly plugged in. Such a waste.

  4. Stop putting the console where my touch controllers are or

    Let us move it to where they are when we finally pick them up after putting on the headset.

  5. Fix the home area so that...

    1. It's not impossible to get back to your game. 2. You can automatically reposition/recalibrate the home area and virtual console to your position in the play area.

    Also, just to add more features to the whole experience, make it so we can see a clock or watch or time while in any game somewhere based on some universal gesture.

  6. Option to persistently disable ASW

    Asynchronous Spacewarp seems to be set to "Auto" upon restart. I want to completely disable ASW. Currently, every time I play a Rift game, I open the debug tool and disable ASW manually. I would rather not have to do this on every restart, and instead have it persistently disabled.

  7. Add setting to Deactivate oculus rift 2.0 function on Xbox controller in order to play non VR games on PC such as fifa

    While lunching fifa (nonVR game) on oculus rift beta 2.0, the xbox controller buttoms functioning as touch controller, LT zooming the screen, RT opening another screen and so on. Therefore, if you can add an option on Oculus rift setting to deactivate these function on XBOX 1 game bad will be great in order to enjoy the game using the screen on Oculus rift. Also if we you add an option to remove the pointer on the screen that moves according to head's movement as it bothers while playing the game and it does function as pointer on game selections.

  8. Have an indicator when holding the Home button

    My GF picked up the rift after I enabled the delay on the Home button. She was, however, very confused that the Home button "didn't work". I wasn't home to explain the change, and she assumed that the Dash was broken.

    Perhaps use the capacitive button to show a small blip over that controller, then when pressed have "hold to open dash" or even just a little "clock" that counts down visually

  9. Fix the keyboard issues on Oculus Dashboard

    So support has been absolutely unable to help me fix an issue with the dashboard and they pretty much shrugged it off and told me to create this here.

    A combination of random of buttons can be pressed and it will ***** up the keyboard, we need a buton to reset the settings.

  10. Make the pinnable wrist-watch more than just a stretched donut.

    I'd like to see a model more like the wristwatch in rec room as an option
    rather that the big bulky torus that shows up right now. Also, what happened to hands in dash? the whole point of dash was to let your vr hands access the menus, and with the most recent update I can't get my VR hands to show up when dash is open! That's a major step backwards!

  11. allow watch to be changed to right hand

    They have recently added an experimental wristwatch, that can tell the time, and can even be pinned to appear in apps, however, there is not an option to move the watch to the right hand. I think this could be a good feature for lefties(and me, because I like to wear my watch on my right hand, even though I am right handed)

  12. Integrate FB messenger with oculus

    A lot of my family and friends use facebook messenger to contact me IRL or call me. It would be nice if I could get like a small message (I'm thinking like a small test window up in the top right or left of the screen) or sound from the dash letting me know when friends or family have messaged me in messenger.
    Also, it would be nice to respond VIA a built-in messenger app in the dash. Like answer calls on messenger or respond to texts VIA built-in app.

  13. Revert some features

    Some of the functionality in the newest version (added a few days ago from this post) is inferior and harder to use than the previous version.

    • Having to hold 'X' for right click instead of just pressing it

    • It's seemingly attempting to load the Home in the background
      whenever you open the dash whilst in game, which plays the home
      music at all times whilst using the dash. I've noticed some major
      performance hits whilst it is attempting this as well.

    • The dash bar seems to no longer have the "Recent Games"
      functionality by hovering over the Occulus logo on…

  14. WebVR support would be awesome!

    WebVR still doesn't work in Core 2.0 outside of Supermedium... I'd like to be able to use WebVR applications without having to use Supermedium's weird interface.

  15. Hotkey Toggle

    Hotkey to pin/unpin unhide/hide the Dash monitor overlay.

    Crowded cockpits (eg. DCS World, Elite Dangerous) would benefit from the ability to quickly toggle the computer monitor display on/off, by hotkey or voice command (Voice Attack).

    It goes without saying the Dash overlay should reappear in the same place when toggled.

  18. Make the Dash buttons pop off the dashbar into a 3D button

    I've had a problem for a while now where even though Dash's bar is very easy to navigate, pressing the buttons (especially when posed with the pointer finger extended) is very difficult because the hand doesn't lock to the button and depress it, it just moves through a flat surface and then the button may or may not scale a little bit before activating. I think a way more VR-focused way of using Dash would be for the buttons to be flat when not in view, but when they are on the dash panel they extend upward off the dash…

  19. Add Friend via SOCIAL tab while in game

    In any game, should be a live list of "currently playing with" people. A "send friend request" should be a quick / simple 1 click action.

  20. Drag Dash Windows to TV's and Monitors

    Currently, the way to put stuff on the monitors is pretty good, the UI works well, no complaints there.

    But I think it'd be nice if we could drag a window we had open in dash over a TV and it would "snap" onto it. Pretty simple :)
