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. Auto Error reporting after a crash from the desktop app

    I went thru 2 days of hair pulling after the desktop app updated and then started crashing and reloading.

    I tried updating the graphics card, total re-install. (which takes forever). Looked in the log files, didn't get any useful info out of it.

    After almost giving up. I looked to see what was the latest version of windows which was 1908. I was just a few rev's behind. This is what fixed my problem.

    But you at least need to put up a pop up box, that states "WHY" the app is auto-closing. And give a few suggested things to…

  2. Please make Firmware updates available for download on your website

    it would be super awesome if you guys would have oculus firmware downloads as optional links/things on your website. readily availble for people who the store/app doesnt work well for. ive had a lot of problems with your desktop app and this is the most major one. as well as a way to manually download them outside of oculus detecting it.

  3. Changing Real Name

    In the Oculus software or online website, add the option to change your account name. Being trans and having my dead name displayed is not nice.

  4. Uninstalling removes the other folders that is stored ProgramData and AppData, and removes all of the registry keys

    When the program gets uninstalled, it should remove the Oculus folders and OpenVR from AppData and in ProgramData.

    When I uninstall the program, and try to reinstall, the install gets corrupted and I have to reboot and after rebooting, still doesn't work.

  5. REGARDING : January 14,2020. Windows 7 Support End-License.

    My question is about the fact that Oculus wont support windows 7 anymore.... So do you just remove DirectX 11 ? .... i mean I'm not very happy with this as i hate Directx12 <3... But mostly i wonder WHY since ... you dont need to remove directX11 .. Why just not keep it as an Extra package :D? you'd save 10 Sec of Compiling .. Not like it can be a big deal at any level BUT For LowEndSpecs PC... and Hard Enthuziams like me who NEED to run as efficient as possible with less power used

  8. Crucial to have Subtitles in games.

    Enforcement all games developers to have Subtitles includes please. For our equality and our rights.

  9. Guardian configurator

    Taskbar ability to switch guardian settings. Or auto map guardian based on what game is running.
    Perfect for seated games vs standing room games and not having to navigate menu to change this all the time.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  13. Allow different language to be the official workaround when installation gets stuck.

    I've tried to install the desktop app many times, however I found that downloading in espagnol/spanish in most cases fixes the installations fails.
    Some people it's french and others Dutch.

    The point is, the desktop app installation process is clearly problematic having so many people asking for help and downloading over 4 times the files.

    Out of 7 installation made on both French and English windows 10 64b (clean and "used", it has worked only one time with the french installation on an english one,never with english. The rest ,spanish were the way to go.

    On top of that at…

  15. Fix FOV multiplier in Oculusmirror

    --FovTanAngleMultiplier setting on Oculus Mirror(.exe) makes the graphic in the Mirror screen barreled (like the actual lens view), even if 1.1 multiplier is used while the Dash is showing as it should. Please fix for the streaming purposes! (Version 1.40, I5-8600K, 32 gb, 2080 etc etc.)

  16. Please add a long press option for the left Controller like you did for the right. We can't play fast games without pressing that menu.

    Your Long press option for the right Touch/Controller is a great idea. I do not mind the extra few seconds to wait for the menu.
    Now the left touch/Controller menu button is a constant trouble maker. No one in my house which is 6 can play Beat Saber or faster pace games with out hitting that menu giving all of us a horrible experience. I have not played with my Oculus Rift in a few months and have completly forgot why I stop. My brother came for a visit and wanted to try the Rift and so I loaded Beat…

  17. Help with unblocking your PIN

    When you type your PIN in to fast to many times it blocks you. Instead of saying go visit the help center for support and not having jacksh*t on there. Maybe actually giving the person help or a number to call instead of them having to wait A WHOLE DAY to receive an email back. How bout that.

  18. 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

  19. Click on An App's Version Number to see the most recent Patch Notes

    Some other people here have had similar ideas, but on the store page there is a clearly visible Version Number, but no way to access the Patch Notes from the store pages, unlike other app stores like iOS or Android. A simple solution would be to have a link to the Patch Notes attached to the Version Number on each App page, so when a user wants to see the Notes they just have to click on the Version number.

  20. Invasive Occulus Update: refocuses current window.

    Stop automatic refocus of oculus software on update check.

    this has happened a lot lately and im just before the point of uninstalling the oculus software completely.

    While playing other games such MC that are in no way related to oculus The oculus software will periodically check for updates this check is bringing me out of my other games that I am current playing and makes itself the main focused window. this is extremely aggerating and a little invasive and really starting to cause problems.
