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. Local Setup Files

    Hi, i' d prefer a local downloaded installer rather than the momentary webinstallation. It would help cutting down the download time and speed up the installation process in case of any problems like the "no display port connection" problem. And i am sure that it is even possible to release a update for both the installed app and the setup.

  2. Display port not connecting!

    Fix the DisplayPort not connecting issue.!! This was my first purchase. Returning it tomorrow and will never buy your product again. I use flight and racing sims and this was my first VR purchase. If it would have gone well, I would have been a regularly upgrading customer. You know what they say about first impressions.

  3. allow unsopprted cards

    i have recently tried to play with a gtx 750 ti but it just got stuck on the update gpu driver even though it was up to date. it should allow you to continue but just with a warning that games may not work and support would be limited.

  4. PLEASE allow the Oculus Rift and Rift S update download to store to the location that we have set within the app media library default!

    This is a serious serious issue IMHO.... Please add to the Product Backlog and fix ASAP.
    In today's world, MOST of us with screaming game PCs have a C: drive for SYTSTEM-related stuff only that is usually an SSD and is not super huge BUT, wave a gigantic D: drive (usually an HDD) for games, data, pics, vids, applications, etc etc... Terabytes and terabytes of storage available there.
    It is absurd and ridiculous that Oculus has a desktop application setting that allows us to set where downloads and games and data install (media library, choose drive and/or folder for each,…

  5. Have the game files seprate from the Oculus App so when/if you need to re-install the oculus software, you do not have to re-download games.

    Have the game files separate from the Oculus App, so when/if you need to re-install the oculus software you do not have to re-download all of the games. Its a waste of time with a standard internet connection, and an expense on a metered internet connection like I have. I think each game should show up separately in add/remove programs versus everything being under the oculus software as well. Its a ridged system where it should be flexible. Will it affect the majority of people, hopefully not, but it sure would be nice for those who do run into situations…

  7. Allow an exit game overide

    There is an issue with a few games where the app will infinitely "quit" itself. This means rebooting the game will not work, as the desktop app's software thinks that it is still running. This problem mainly occurs via steam VR usage, but there should be an overide button that can be turned on in the settings, and then when the three dot options button is pushed on the app, the menu would include overide quit, it will warn you before hand and then you click ignore and it will tell the app to stop thinking it is quitting the…

  8. Stop requiring a NTSF formatted harddrives and make it easier to install to a different drive

    I'm not sure why there is a requirement that your HD be formatted into NTSF to install the Oculus software. The format of the drive should have NOTHING to do with system and I'm sure since most people buying the Rift are developers of some kind (such as myself), they have a similar setup of a OS drive and a content drive formatted in ANYTHING else but NTFS as it's not a good file system. Why was this ever made a requirement?

  9. Open oculus app without wifi

    Up until just recently I was able to open the oculus app without having to be connected to wifi, for some reason now it wont open without wifi. But if you connect to wifi, open the app and then close the wifi the app still works. So what is the point of it? Please set it back so I am not dependent on wifi to play my games that dont require wifi.

  10. Fix Oculus Client installation issues

    Users will often have games fail to install.

    We're told when this happens to reinstall Oculus.

    Reinstalling Oculus fails 5/6 times, regardless of what steps you take beforehand.

    Please fix both the installation of applications and the installation of Oculus itself.

    To that end, if third party drivers have to install, let us have an option to prevent third party driver installation altogether, as that is where failure is most frequent, both for Oculus and for Steam.

    Also make it possible to download a standalone, fully downloaded version of the setup, as downloading 5 gigabytes every time your installation fails…

  11. Make "Audio Input in VR" use the Default Communication Device in Windows

    The Oculus currently uses the default audio input device when setting the "Audio Input in VR" to "Use Windows Settings". It makes more sense to use the Default Communication Device since this settings is for supporting in game communication and would match up with how many other communication applications work.

  12. Make disk drive writing more performant

    I've noticed that when I boot my machine or start the Oculus app, the app itself pegs the hard drive super hard bringing it to 100% Disk I/O and slowing down all applications including the Oculus desktop app. This becomes super painful as Windows 10 doesn't deal with disk I/O well anyway if you are on a spinning disk. I'm on a 7200 RPM 1TB drive and so far, my only issues with performance have been disk related. This is usually due to game updates running in the background.

    I'd love to see a 'low write' mode where I'm trickling…

  13. Library: Navigating to an app's Details no longer shows me information about Sitting/Standing and input methods.

    Previously, navigating to an app's details would take me to the store listing which listed a bunch of valuable information that I liked to know in order to decide what I want to play, and how it is best played. Mainly Sitting vs Standing, Touch vs Gamepad, etc. Now it shows a new panel on the right showing playtime, install location etc. This new panel is also valuable information, but I would love to once again have a way to easily see the store listing (or at least the aforementioned important information) from an app in the library.

  14. Library: When "including Not Installed", I no longer have no idea which ones are installed.

    In my Library, under each title is some sort of timeframe "5 hours ago", "a day ago" etc. 1) I have no idea what this really refers to, 2) and it seems to have replaced valuable information which is whether or not an app is installed. Now it's very difficult to discern "hey I want to play that right now, but I better install it first".

  15. Keyboard Macros for Touch

    I built a keyboard mapping to make all keystrokes on my QWERTY keyboard available as macros on my Touch controllers, but I can't run any custom input handlers for Touch during Oculus Dash because Dash overrides them all.

    Here's my macro app (Unity) on Github: https://github.com/ajcampbell1333/DOFSCII

    I built a clone directly via the OpenVR api too, but Dash overrides all input from that one as well.

    If we can't have custom input handlers running in the background, we at least need keyboard macros. Dash is pretty useless if we can't type while we're standing in the middle of the room.…

  18. The desktop app is too big in size

    The default size is a lot bigger than before. Whenever I open the app, the vertical length is maximised to cover the entire screen (1440x900). I can resize it to roughly the same as the 1.20 Oculus app, but it doesn't retain the size upon restarting the app.

    Please make the app remember the last set size, and/or scale the default to the resolution of the screen (or just use the previous size).
