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. Provide option to disable battery warnings. Don't take over full screen if battery is dead.

    If playing a game that doesn't use a touch controller (racing simulators are the most common), if the touch controller batteries go critical it will take over your screen and ruin whatever game you are in the middle of. If a multiplayer game there is no pause option to just stop what you are doing and find/recharge the touch controller.

    It's unnecessary to take over the screen if a battery is dead. If someone is actually using the touch controllers they will know it is dead. And if they aren't using the controllers you just destroyed their ability to play.

  2. Enable a Keybind for Passthrough+

    Passthrough+ as implemented is a useful feature - however for Sim Pilots and Racers - it is not useable as we don't hold the controllers.

    Please enable a user defined bind, either a Keybind, or a DirectX joystick button or other combination (e.g. Shift + DirectX keybind) and enable it as a toggle, or hold so that we too can use Passthrough+ to find our beers..... ;-)

  4. Give the Rift S more features from the Quest

    To put it simply. Make the Rift S (which is tethered to a PC) actually worth it. The Quest although a marvel in its self has ultimately destroyed the Rift S in terms of features, which isnt really that fair seeing as they were months apart from release meaning the Rift S could have easily had some of the same features as the Quest. What feature you may be asking? Simple.

    -Manual IPD adjustment
    -The 1440 x 1600 OLED display
    -The up and coming hand tracking

    And another feature which could easily be implimented

    -90hz (or above) refresh rate (We…

  5. Multiple users/accounts for family members.. Family sharing.. If Apple can do it, so can you!

    I can't believe it's 2020 and I (as a parent) can't download a game from Oculus and have separate game data/user accounts for my kids.. Completely unsat, and I'd likely not have purchased this headset if I knew about this glaring problem for families. If Apple (The mothership of software control) can figure out family sharing, so can you Oculus!

  6. Open source the CV1

    The DK1 and DK2 were each opensourced after they were discontinued. This has allowed people to continue repairing, modifying, and experimenting with them. They do things they would never do with their current headset.

    As the CV1 is now discontinued and people are switching to the Rift S and Quest as their primary HMD, its time the CV1 is opensourced. This could open up a fresh wave of experimentation and modification to breathe more innovation into the still fledgling VR community. Additionally it will allow the community to find solutions to problems with their out of warranty CV1s to keep…

  9. MAKE A KNUCKLES CONTROLLER FOR THE RIFT AND FUTURE HEADSETS

    I believe that the next step in controllers for VR is the knuckles, since valve is already doing this. Why not Oculus?

  10. Fix Locomtion Movement as Games use, Re-Centre with 2 Thumbsticks, make a ONLINE FRIENDS LOBBY e.g. The Store, and any Room As Default.

    You need to fix this because it is just stuff that annoys us: -
    1. ALLOW STORE OR HOME OR (new) ONLINE FRIENDS LOBBY to be our Default Page to prevent the unnecessary loading.
    2. IN HOME sort out the Movement so that it has a Strafe and the turning is a same rate of turn to other directions (2 Joysticks doing same things and using 2 Joysticks to turn slightly faster is just rubbish and has no strafe!)
    3. USING BOTH THUMB CLICKS should RECENTRE as that is the usual method everywhere else!!!

  11. Remove Mandatory Facebook Link for all Oculus Logins

    Many of us are not interested in using a personal Facebook Social Media account for Oculus for a variety of reasons.
    These include, but are not limited to personal privacy concerns linking my real name, address, photos, and countless other personal information.
    While we understand that Facebook own Oculus, and the data on both accounts, we do not wish these to be linked in any way.

  13. Vibration

    I’ve had constant problems with the vibration since I got the oculus rift S. When I play a game and the controllers vibrate the hands in the game freak out and go all over the place. If you could add a many to turn off vibration it would take my experience to a whole other lever!

  15. Add Foveated Rendering

    Could we add the option for foveated rendering with the rift-s? This render mechanism is available with Turing based - gpu's and can greatly improve the frame rate within the vr environment by rendering the edge of the scene at a lower resolution than the centre.

    This is generally unnoticeable in use, and with my setup, on a now defunct Pimax headset, turning on foveated rendering gave me an immediate 10fps frame increase at zero extra cost. That's got to be a winner!

  16. Stop the rift s controllers from going to sleep when placed in a gun stock.

    The controllers go to sleep almost immediately after being placed in a gunstock and require constant movement to keep them active. This is quite a ridiculous problem to have as a lot of users have gunstocks. Please give the option to users like myself that have rechargable batteries the option to turn of the battery saving features on the controllers so we can play first person shooters the way they were meant to be played.

  17. Promote Rift S as much as you promote Quest.

    I think Quest is getting more attention because people think they need a really beefy computer to run Rift S. A whole lot of people own gaming laptops and I think they don't know that Rift S will run fine on their laptops. I think that is also a fairly good point why the Rift S is not selling as good as the Quest. Rift S is a great headset and deserves more attention from you Oculus/Facebook.

  18. Trade in discount

    I have been recommended to post this by the support staff, Is there a chance in the future for a trade policy? If we give our old oculus rifts in with sensors controllers, to get a discount for the oculus rift s? maybe 50% off or 25% off?

  19. Smooth Curvature of Guardian Outline

    I would be nice if Rift would smooth out the outline that we made to made the Guardian Cage a little more aesthetically pleasing. I know that every time I do mine there are some areas where I looked like I sneezed. Unfortunately, I do not have the steadiest of hands.

  20. Add the RX 5600 XT to the supported hardware list.

    Add the RX 5600 XT to the hardware whitelist. The card does not appear on the current whitelist and is more than capable.
