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. Optionally add a recenter circle when you step outside of it.

    I would like a guardian option to display a center point (or circle) when your not in the center of your room. I have 10x10 foot room. I like that I can move around, but often, trying to figure out where the center of the room is, I have to lift my hmd, or walk into a wall. I don't want the full guardian to popup... but just a dot on the floor or a circle on the floor... so when I want to recenter... I can, in game... without having to force the guardian up... or take my hmd…

  3. Allow more customization of Guardian

    Allowing more customization of the guardian wall would have a positive impact on user experience. Many of us already know the bounds of our playspace, and don't need the thick, bright guardian wall popping up all the time, but also want more notice than the floor square. This is especially true now that the sensitivity of when the wall appears has increased with the Core 2.0 beta. Some welcome customization options would be the following:

    1) Guardian wall sensitivity slider
    2) Guardian wall opacity slider
    3) Guardian wall line thickness slider
    4) Guardian wall color options
    5) Guardian wall texture…

    Hi all! Thanks for submitting and voting for this idea.

    We recently added the ability to adjust the Guardian sensitivity, which you can find in the settings menu while in VR.

    Since this idea is a bit more expansive in terms of what is being asked for, we’re going to leave this open for voting. We hope you enjoy the new Guardian settings that have been added in the meantime!

  4. Hands going to orbit after recent update

    The title of this idea sounds ridiculous but hear me out... This is not a problem that I've ever had to deal with until the most recent update that was to improve tracking on FPS games and boxing games.

    In the past- If your hand went out of tracking, the hand would freeze there until it had tracking. This was much more preferable to how the old Rift handled it which meant your arms would go into orbit, however this now seems to have plagued the Rift S as a result of the update and is generally annoying for games…

  5. OCULUS HOME/DASH must improve! Movement, UI, RECENTRE VIEW, WATCH etc.

    OCULUS HOME/DASH - has the worst movement of all and even uses 2 Touch that are the same at it!
    - No Strafe!
    - 2 Touch to turn at 2x snail pace which is still SLOW!
    - Whilst trying to position yourself in front of the Avatar Mirror the Left/Right Joysticks move the Menu Panel!
    - We can walk through all our Objects/Furniture we add even though the room obstructs us e.g. a Fire Place!
    - RESET VIEW is in 3 different places yet does not utilise 2 Thumbsticks as most Games/Apps do so leave those unbound!
    - The WATCH…

  6. Leave blind-of-and-eye people improve the performance

    Hello. Being a Rift user since 2015, and I'm blind in my left eye, I have made some times the question some times the qestion if it is possible to use the Rift CV1 rendering in only one screen (or mirroring exactly the same image in both screens) to improve performance. Thanks.

  7. Oculus Rift improvement.

    I hear that the Oculus Rift S doesn´t need sensors, and that´s good. However, what I believe will be a total succes for the Oculus company is to be able to design an wireless Oculus Rift, since, to be honest with you, for the costumer the wire is much more annoying than having to install the sensors. I mean, I know the Oculus Quest uses no wires but is not as complete and advanced as the Oculus Rift. Having no sensors is fine but not needing a wire connected to the PC will be quite the achievement.

  8. platform wide switch for left and right handed controls

    The touch controllers are perfectly symmetrical. There's absolutely no reason why there couldn't be a setting in oculus home to mirror ANY games control scheme. So if the game says "A" Button, with the oculus home switch toggled it is now "X" button. There should never be a situation where a left handed person has to endure because of a right handed controller mapping.

  9. guardian

    When in game, 3d obstacles that are inside your forcefield should be layered on top of the forcefield. Lets say I'm playing CREED, the guy I'm fighting should be inside the forcefield with me. this helps for both safety and better gameplay experience as I will have a more realistic understanding of my placement inside my room. Right now the wall behind my opponent appears in front of my opponent giving the illusion that he's further away and bigger than he is while he's right in my face. see what I'm saying? I have no IT understanding but I hope…

  10. create a controller that lets you use all fingers and have pressure sensors so you can move diffrent hands on items in game

    create a controller that lets you use all fingers and have pressure sensors so you can move diffrent hands on items in game

    This Would make the experiance on a oculus way better than the vive

  13. VR training

    I am an OB nurse manager and I have an idea that may help healthcare workers train by using VR. I would love an opportunity to discuss this with someone.

  14. Freeze the image when headset off

    Whenever we need to take off the headset (mostly in non full vr games) would be very convinient to have an option to freeze the screen. So no matter we move headset, the image keeps still in monitor.
    With this feature, the still image can be seen in desktop monitor, so we can write easier, read and copy from other apps, check data etc.. and when its done, return to vr.
    As an example, copy setups from web for driving games, check routes for flying or space games.

  15. El ecositema de Oculus para otros HMDs, que no sean de Oculus, tiene sentido

    Buenos dias Oculus.

    Desde el inicio de Oculus en su KickStarter apoye el proyecto y en 2016 adquiri la Oculus Rift cv1. Mi experiencia ha sido muy positiva, las cv 1 me fascinaron y por ahí en 2018 queria un upgrade de hardware y todos esperábamos las CV2... no salieron y con el tiempo salieron las Rift S y me ilusioné, hasta que vi sus carencias, la que mas, la falta de un ajuste de IPD mecanico o el sonido, entre otros. Yo entiendo ese movimiento y entiendo el porque de eso... ahora bien, me vi "obligado" a buscar alternativas…

  16. Frustration free coil-less wire for Rift S please !!?

    VERY dissapointed at the sheer useless cable for the Rift headset. It knots up and curls up like a dried worm and ruins experiences. I was hoping for a wireless PC headset, but i guess that is a way off yet ? Quest is what i would have gone for, but i want more PC gaming.
    Anyway, i am pleading with Rift, PLEASE make the cable/wire for Rift S braided, or some material that does not coil up like a snake, PLEASE !

  17. Make oculus a scientific tool

    If the company gives some price discounts and tools to get the data from the sensors, scientific research could benefit a lot from it.
    Not only the researchers would have benefits, but the creation of a standard headset would be sold everywhere in the planet because we scientists always try to get the tools the most close possible from other papers.

  18. Another fix for "Unable to Complete Update"

    I have been unable to update my headset. I tried all the fixes provided but the one that worked was not listed.
    You need to unplug all your USB devices and then ONLY plug in the Oculus rift headset and sensors. After the update you can re-plug everything in.

    How about a Batman versus TMNT game from the hit animated DC movie? I was so blown away watching that.

  20. Support help

    When you have to do a bunch of updates because of a new product you put out.
    Hire some backup support so we are not waiting all week or more to fix a bricked headset.
