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. Improve Rift S Touch Controller tracking

    Tracking of the Rift S Touch Controllers seems to fail despite the controller being in plain site. In the attached video, you'll see that the initial loss is caused by (intentional) occlusion; however, the previously occluded controller isn't picked back up again despite no longer being occluded. In order to be positional tracked by the cameras again, it must be moved significantly. Note: this seems to happen if two things occur:


    1. Occlusion of one controller

    2. Synchronized movement between occluded controller and visible controller

    This causes issues with FPS games so far, specifically ones where a two-handed pistol grip is being…

  2. Let us mark where real objects are in guardian

    For example I always keep my keyboard in the same place in my room. It would be nice to be able to mark where certain objects are in guardian for easy access. A rectangular prism for my keyboard that exists in a fixed place just outside my boundary for example, or a cylinder for my beverage that I could quickly add in or reposition on the fly from the dash menu. These would only be visible when your guardian walls are.

  3. Add Oculus Venues

    Since we paid the most for your headsets, why does this have to be such a big deal. Just add Venues to Rift. We couldn't watch the oculus connect 5 livestream in VR.

  4. Trade in Rift S for Quest

    I feel that after the announcement that Quest will have the option of using PCVR, this has made the Rift S a much worst value.

    I and many other Rift S users would instantly exchange our Rift S for a quest and gladly pay for the Link since it gives you more versatility and the option of PCVR and wireless. The improvement that the Rift S has over the quests are not worth the price of admission. Four months after launch and I deeply regret buying a Rift S.

    The Rift s is simply not worth 400 usd on the…

  5. Create a version of Rift S with hardware IPD slider, for those with IPD issues.

    The rift S is clearly a product many are interested in, but for some of us the IPD limit is an issue.
    I am sure many of us with ipd issues would love a version of the rift s, that might be more expensive but would have IPD slider.
    Then the normal Rift S could be left as it is, and the more expensive with ipd slider for those that cannot use the normal rift s.

  6. make oculus medium and other creation tools multi platform so artists can choose what HMD they find most comfortable/affordable.

    Hi I’m a digital artist and you guys just happened to make the best 3D sculpting program out there(oculus medium). It is literally the only thing I use VR for. BUT I am a HtC user and I am constantly being stopped from doing my work after “revive” gets the boot from updates. And I don’t make enough money to buy another VR setup to just use 1 art program. So I beg of you to open your platform just a bit more. I understand having exclusives, but I don’t understand making art tools an exclusive. Let the people create…

  8. Set maximum height for Guardian system

    I'm sure I'm not the only person who has slammed into their ceiling fan a few times. It would be excellent if the guardian system could be set with a maximum height so that the grid appears if you raise your hands too high. Simply add a step to the guardian setup where the user holds the controller at the max height and presses the trigger.

  9. Allow a trade in from Rift to Rift S

    I purchased a rift about 5 months ago and I heard about quest and rift s about right afterwards. After looking into them more, they look amazing, and an ability to be able to trade in a rift for at least $50 off of the rift s or quest would be amazing. Thank you oculus team, this would help out!

  10. 72hz mode for watching movies in Rift S

    Watching 24fps content in Rift S currently features quite a bit of judder, due to its 80hz refresh rate not being divisible by 24. Enabling a 72hz mode on the headset would allow for perfectly smooth 24fps motion. This would be a huge benefit when watching Netflix in the dashboard, or movies in Bigscreen.

  11. Gamma, white balance and color saturation adjustmen

    Games are designed for OLED screen of original Rift. There are issues in dark games. We need to calibrate gamma, brightness (no backlight) and color for correct results.

  12. Limit the number of Oculus Rift S one person can purchase to improve distribution until the stock shortages are resolved

    In light of the limited stocks and the current global situation where many people are stuck in quarantine, it would be a big gesture of Oculus to assist in helping to get VR into the hands of as many people as possible. This includes individuals stuck in quarantine, educators, researchers, etc.

    There are major issues of distribution with a significant number of units being snapped up by resellers and scalpers, resulting in many units stuck in the warehouses of these non-users. As of this writing, there are 5169 listings for "Oculus Quest" + Condition = "New" and 2471 listings for…

  13. Using The Oculus Rift S in bed.

    I have medical conditions that do not allow me to sit or stand for long periods of time, Therefore I usually use The Rift Laying on my back. As you can imagine, this limits my use to basically watching TV and movies.

    My suggestion is the option to rotate the Y axis while setting up the floor settings. This would allow people with disabilities or anyone just relaxing in bed to prop against some pillows and enjoy the Rift as if they were standing. The settings should not be too difficult, as it would just rotate the Y axis and…

  14. please stop leaving the game because of low controller batteries

    As a Elite Dangerous gamer I don’t need the controllers. But every time when the batteries of the controllers becomes low I get a notification which left the game and turn to oculus Home. I’ve lost some high end PvP event cause of this situation.
    My Idea: let the Oculus software tell you once inside the headset without leaving the game that the batteries are low.

  15. Fix issues related to running Oculus Home behind a proxy and/or make the runtime work in offline mode.

    This feedback ticket is targeted for the use case of using the Oculus Rift in a business environment, but the requested feature can also benefit consumers.

    Business customers can’t install the software in common network environments. Most businesses use a proxy to communicate with the internet. The Oculus installer does not respect the proxy settings of the system, causing an "e.ishttperrorcode is not a function" error when trying to create a user account or logging in with an existing one. This is not the only bug when trying to install the Oculus software from within a restricted network environment, but…

  16. Implement TRM to improve performance 37%+

    https://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/research/rainbow/projects/trm/

    Basically, send every other frame on each eye at lower resolution, it can improve performance without perceived quality loss (might be better than fixed foveated rendering, and can be combined with it for even more performance).

  17. Allow use of Oculus Browser on Rift S

    I would like the ability to use Oculus Browser on Rift S in the same way I do on my Oculus Quest or Oculus Go devices. I recognize a user may easily access the Internet using the attached PC, but the Oculus Browser tool is more private.

  18. Subtract from Guardian boundary area.

    After painting the Guardian boundary area, allow users to SUBTRACT from the boundary area, as well as add to it. Adding to it is great, but if you make one mistake you have to start all over which is extremely frustrating.

  20. Profiles for sensor and Guardian setups

    Myself and several other users I've come across have a play area where they can't leave the third sensor in place all the time because it obstructs passage through the room or just looks bad. But, unplugging or moving a sensor currently means having to redo the sensor configuration and Guardian setup.

    I propose a profile system so that we can have multiple configurations saved and easily switch between them depending on how and where I'm playing. If my third sensor is unnecessary for whatever I'm doing, I could then select a profile where the third sensor is disabled and…
