  • Store: The place where all VR app purchasing takes place.


  1. Option for purchase of physical installation media

    Provide an option to purchase physical installation media.

    This will help those with slow or unreliable internet connections as well as those with restrictive monthly data caps

  2. Add an option in the Oculus software to power the controllers down.

    The lights on the controllers blink when on standby, but I'd love to be able to click a button in the app to shut them off to keep them from blinking, which is a tad distracting for me while I'm doing other things, and save a little battery. I'd prefer not to give my computer a reach-around every time I want to turn the controllers off by unplugging the USB.

  3. Allow Users To change where the oculus desktop app is installed

    t's insanity that you have to go through multiple forums and discord servers asking people a simple question whit a extremely complicated step of procedures That just is not user friendly. give us the option to just switch the drive that Software is stored on before the installation process. Further More Also make it to where it dose not also have to be just NTSF hard drive just make it so any hard drive is compatible. Also You are already able to do this with in the software with video games you download. I think if Oculus is trying to…

  4. Add the RTX 2080 to compatible graphics cards

  6. Notification if friend request has been rejected

    It would be nice to get a notification if a friend request has been rejected, I tested this with some friends so we see what happens, if you make a friendship request the "Add Friend" button turns into a clock symbol or a "cancel request" button, if the request is denied you still see the clock symbol, so you can never be sure if someone has declined the request or simply hasn't seen it and clicked on it yet...really what should happen is that the clock symbol should turn back into the "add friend" button and/or you should get a…

  7. Easy way to reset orientation

    It would be good if there were a quick way from Dash to reset the sensor orientation. Something changed mine and I had a heck of a time getting it corrected.I posted this in the Oculus forum https://goo.gl/rV8CMg before finding this uservoice forum; my bad.

  10. Unknown Source Games Currently Missing "cover_landscape_image_large.png"

    I just noticed last night when I went through to change the "StoreAssets" for a few of my Steam Games and the Doom 3 BFG Mod that they do not show right in the new 2.0 home desktop app.

    The "coverlandscapeimage.png" doesn't seem to be used it seems to use one of the square images as it is zoomed in ie the top edge of DOOM is cut off as well as the Project Cars logo the top of the silhouettes head gets cut off. After poking around in the other asset folders for Oculus store games they…

  11. "Hear non-VR apps in VR" options for both in and out of Dash

    Currently there is a new option to enable sounds coming from Windows to output through the Rift headphones, but it only works when Dash is active. Why not have an additional option for mirroring regardless of when Dash is being used? Say you want to hear notifications, music, videos, etc in VR no matter what you're doing. Without such an option, one has to manually go and change their audio device in Windows every time.

  12. Option to disable second desktop (dash desktop) for compatibility purposes

    I tried playing Doom VFR and it does not work with the second display device created by dash for the virtual desktop. While I was trying to make it work I managed somehow to make desktop not working in dash (the dash bar was still coming up) and doom DID work.

    Please make it so that we can disable second monitor device (and desktop with it) for compatibility purposes. I know I can revert back to the old home, and doom works fine with that but I don't want to rely on legacy software.

  13. Play quest games using rift s?

    Play quest games using rift s?

    We know that a quest can take advantage of the pcvr titles using a link.

    I have quest games I wish I could play on my rift s.

    Can we get a quest android emulator so we can run our quest library and even the hands free feature on our rift s.

    Windows emulates android, even a couple of good android emulators out there.

    Just need you guys to make a vr android emulator so we can log in and use our quest games and features

  14. Facebook Account Conversion Prompt Displaying Every Time Headset Removed and Put On

    This is specifically an issue with Oculus Desktop. Currently, if you have not yet been able to convert your Oculus account, you are presented with a conversion prompt. The issue is that this is prompt is displayed every time the headset is put on, even if you went through the prompt a moment before. This causes significant disruption for users who have not yet been able to merge the account especially developers who frequently switch back and forth between sessions in and out of VR. An alternative behavior would be to display the prompt when Oculus Desktop is first launched…

  15. Deleting devices no longer owned straight from the app

    I recently gave my friend my Rift S to a friend because I am getting the Oculus Quest 2. I no longer have the headset and I CANNOT REMOVE IT FROM THE APP ON MY PHONE OR COMPUTER. Please give us the option to remove old hardware that is no longer owned from the app. For now, after much time spent with support, it is stuck on my app.

  16. Allow us to remove games from the Library.

    We should be able to not just uninstall and hide a game from our Library, but completely remove it from our account. There is no reason why a free game I tried that doesn't work should have to stay in the library. There could also be issues with someone's family seeing a game that a person would rather not have them see.

  17. Warn anyone on Windows insider builds or outdated Windows builds that installing a driver update might brick their PC

    I would be highly grateful if there was any kind of warning that would have occurred before my computer decided to completely brick with the error code DRIVERIRQLNOTLESSOR_EQUAL. This was because I tried installing the latest driver update on a Windows test build and there was no warning or anything that would tell me the driver would cause my PC to be unusable.

    I'm sure many people would be grateful for some kind of warning or message that would pop up about this because I ended up having to completely reset my computer and all the…

  18. Dark Screen

    I have already used on my MSI PC exactly the same helmet (same characteristics) in September 2019 at the Planeur training center in Puivert (Aude)

    Monday March 2, 2020, I decided to plug in my new helmet, bought a few days ago.
    The oculus program asked me for an update which I did immediately.
    While everything throughout the configuration seems OK, the screen of the helmet turns on, but turns off definitively after about a minute.

    I reinstalled the OCULUS software, changed USB, etc. nothing helps.
    The headphones only turn on for a short time, once the USB is disconnected…

  19. Desktop App: Fix the installer.

    First and foremost. Allow us to choose where to install this app. In today's market, SSD's are much cheaper and storage more readily available. I think it's safe to say most users have multiple internal drives.

    I'm well aware we can "force" this program to install in a different drive using CMD prompt or a Run line. However, I think it's just bad form not to have this built into the installer.

    Secondly, make up your mind on how much space it will take. When I try to install with less than 21gb of free space it will tell me…

  20. Why is the Oculus Software so chonk?

    I've been using the Oculus Desktop app since 2016 when it first went live, and I've watched it grow from a reasonable few GB to now requiring around 23GB. Can we please have an option to disable Oculus Home/furniture/etc. and reclaim all of that storage? I can't help but feel like it's bloat on what should be a rather small storefront/driver/settings combo.
