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. 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…

  2. 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.

  4. Add an option to Lengthen the Timeout when tracking is Lost Due to High CPU load

    When I load (NOT PLAY, Just Load) X-plane it uses 100% CPU for a minute or 3
    When this happens Guardian setup pops up
    can you add an option to tell the Oculus software to be Patient while it loads !
    AND/OR
    have the Oculus Software not CLOSE the game which I launched from the desktop not Via the oculus software just because the oculus software is having issues !

    Very Frustrating!

  6. Please make an option to rollback the oculus software to an older version. Currently stuck on the latest and cant get past setup

    I have had the oculus rift s for almost a year now, it has no issues until the latest update which has now bricked the headset. I can no longer get past the setup as the senor check always goes to "Sensors Can't Track Headset". I tried it on an old pc with old software and worked great, but once I updated the software, it couldn't track anymore. Please make an option for us users to be able to go to an older version of the oculus software, that way when a update comes out that breaks the headset, we…

  7. Should be allowed to connect with Android and Apple smartphones

    The Company should promote an app which could allow non-pc users to connect their not only smart phones but also PC and should add a recording function so that people can easily record their Vr experience and especially for smartphone users will have no issue if he/she doesn't have a desktop pc and Oculus Gear would become more portable and could work anywhere around the world

  8. Make it easy to download the Oculus software. I go to the website, and it is extremely difficult to find oculus software download.

    It is ridiculously difficult to find the oculus software download. I go to the website, and there is no clear download for the oculus software. took 10 minutes to find the "Download Oculus Software" at the bottom of the page in the help section. Make the download easier to find.

  9. Have multiple versions of a game downloaded at the same time.

    Some games have different versions (Such as onward) , and some times you quickly want to switch between versions at the click of a button, but with the current system you have to Re-download that version, wasting precious time that could be spent playing.

    The proposed fix for this would be by allowing 2+ versions to be downloaded, and when you press Start to play the game there would be a popup asking you witch version you want to play.

  12. Oculus app recognise multiple headset connected to the same computer at the same time.

    In short:
    1) allow the desktop App to recognise all the headset that are connected to the computer
    2) allow the configuration of all of them on the same computer
    3) allow the selection of the active headset (the one you want to use right now) directly from the app.

    It would be great that the headset work like any other peripheral device and that multiple peripheral device get detected and recognise instead of having to physiquely disconnect it from the computer.

    Do like the audio system is doing, list all the option and the acces to the peripheral device…

  13. 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.

  14. Don't Make Gaming "Social"

    I liked how gaming used to be where your game account wasn't tied to your social media account... for the sake of privacy.

  15. Please make it possible to disable the automatich Oculus software updates

    Updates are not always needed for every single user. They broke my software multiple times while i didn't need the update. Every time i had to do a full reinstall of the oculus software to fix the problem.
    For this we need an option to disable the automatic updates of the Oculus software so we can install them if we need them.

  16. Don't install Virtual Audio drivers on Rift systems

    The Oculus software now includes a Virtual Audio Driver which is used by the Quest for Oculus Link. This driver serves no purpose for Rift users but it is still installed and in the process stomps all over your existing audio devices and configuration. When the drivers are updated, this virtual device is re-installed and re-enabled even if previously disabled, repeating the offence. This installation behaviour is unwanted and a nuisance. This only became a problem when the Rift & Quest software versions were merged.

    Please change the installation logic to prevent this, or provide an advanced installation option which…

  17. Please bring us full Linux Support for both Users and Developers...

    Windows 10 is not the only Operating System nor is it the best for everyone...

    I'm aware this has been requested before but I'm afraid VR might go down the same path that Flat Screen Games went down for a very long time...

    Linux has proven to be more optimized then Windows 10 making it a developer friendly system that even every day users have grown to love...

    Currently the only HMD's on the market that natively support Linux is the Valve Index and the HTC Line up, the only issue is that most other VR platforms don't support Linux…

  18. Fix you lock out procedures!

    I was recently locked out of my Oculus account because of a period left in the email that was impossible to see on the projector we were using, which resulted in me being locked out due to trying too many passwords. This caused me to be locked out for an hour with no way to resolve, which is not ok! Even more ridiculous is that it's not just my account that was locked, but the entire application so I couldn't even use a new account to set things up if I wanted. This wouldn't have been so bad except I…

  19. vr stadiums

    Hi i'm a 13 year old kid in a base ball family and i think that it would be great if there were a few cameras around the stadium and you could pick your faivrout seat in the whole stadium. Im not just saying baseball im saying every sport in the world. This could be for all vr headsets.this was my thought.
