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!

  2. Panel pullout exclamation mark

    The headline says it. at first the panels were only pullable from 1st monitor and 2nd one gave instant exclamation mark. Now the panel pullout isn't working from the 1st monitor either? The virtual desktop works itself though and can be pinned normally, only the windows' can't be pulled out with the instant exclamation mark. So, please fix this, it didn't work on 1.38 version either, while 1.39 worked like a charm.

  3. App in the Home to read text messages from your phone

    A simple In-Game App that is compatible with Android and iPhone that lets you hit the Oculus button while in game and read (and hopefully reply) Text messages without having to remove the headset.

  4. oculus home broadcast screen interaction

    would be great if you open a screen broadcast and actually be able to click on the screen and do stuff rather than just having it there to look at

  5. Create a way to test external 3D objects BEFORE importing them. Or gine an option to REMOVE definitely unwanted/unworking objects.

    I imported some objects into my home.
    Unfortunately some imported objects didn't work well, so I decided to remove them from the [...]\Oculus Home_Import\ExampleUGC directory, but I still can see them into the home imported objects list.
    The issue is -- not all the external objects seem to work.
    Some of them didn't work at all: in this case, you will see them in the Imported Objects List shown as a Red Sign. Then you can simply delete them from the [...]\Oculus Home_Import\ExampleUGC directory and they are gone. Ok.
    Some other objects have a difefrent behaviour: they ARE listed into…

  6. Make Oculus Virtual Desktop work for Windows standard users. Currently it works only with the legacy power user permissions.

    Currently Oculus Virtual Desktop works only with legacy power user permissions on Windows 10. This problem has been discussed in the forum in January 2018 and nothing changed since then. I found out this only by a time eating investigation:
    https://forums.oculusvr.com/community/discussion/72826/bug-cant-perform-mouse-actions-on-virtual-desktop-in-home-with-standard-account

    I use a standard user account because this is the way to use a PC secure.
    I don't want to elevate my account to legacy power user group.
    Based on less information from the internet the Power user group has similar permissions like the standard user group but something must be different, because the Virtual Desktop works with that…

  8. Text Messages

    Please give us the possibility to send text messages to our friends. Not always they are online or if they are online may be can't receive a call. Having the possibility to send text messages when they are online or offline would be great.

  9. Multiple broadcasts on Home movie/tv-screens and fix for the multiple monitor window pinning

    If i put broadcast to my widescreen movie screen in Home, i can't add another broadcast to other screens i.e. wall screen. We need more sources at a same time than just one.

    Also, the pinning of the windows's doesn't work from the virtual desktop. When tried i.e. from the 2nd monitor, it only produces yellow oval with exclamation mark every time while pinning the whole display works.

  11. Make an offline installer and allow it to use it offline

    Here where i live internet is really slow and expensive sometimes even you cant access it, so oculus becomes a useless piece of hardware collecting dust if you dont have internet

  12. Customize Home Avatar Hands (Skin / WHITE GLOVE / Cyber options maybe)

    Hello!
    I recently bought a Rift S and have been using it for a few days now. However, I haven't been connected to the internet until today. When I connected and used the Oculus Home, I noticed that my hands changed from white (like gloves / hologram) to a fleshy pinkish that persist even when back offline. How do I revert / edit my hand appearance? I'm probably missing something but I didn't see it in the avatar mirror.
    I included a screenshot of the fleshy hands as comparison with the white hands I want back.

    This is my screenshot…

  13. A local home

    It would be possible to have a home that is completely independent of the internet. A home that is private and nothing in it is uploaded to the Internet. For now, each item is uploaded to the internet for the sake of sharing the place with others, but it would be better if it were 100% independent. It is also good to repair because there are no stable surfaces in the present. If you place an object, it may be on the floor, not on it. It is so difficult to arrange the items correctly. It wasn't like that before.…

  14. Have standard joystick locomotion as an option in settings (with strafing)

    I’d love to see the capability to control using the left stick for movement and the right stick for turning, as opposed to teleport locomotion. I understand that some users may experience motion sickness this way however, so perhaps an option in the settings?

    Hey all – we’re marking this idea as started, as joystick locomotion was implemented in a previous software update. However, from the comments, it is clear that this idea has morphed a bit to include the specific request of strafing being included in the control scheme. I’ve updated the idea title to include the request for strafing controls. Thanks!

  16. Turn off background music with older controller too

    Oculus Home background music is pretty annoying after a while, if you are trying to talk to someone. But the music can only be turned off with the Touch, but not with an older single palm controller. I would suggest a Menu, where all items (but at least the very basic ones) are accessible with any controller type. Or simply turn off background music by default, with an option to turn it on.

  17. Add prize box rewards for spending time in Oculus Home, not just in other Apps/Games.

    Currently time spent in Oculus Home does not earn you prize box rewards... increasingly, Home is becoming a social hub where I meet people, meet up with friends, share ideas and home designs, even watch videos and play little Home-created mini games. However no prize rewards are giving for the time we spend hanging out in Home, we only get prizes boxes for launching into other apps. Give Home the credit it deserves, and offer rewards for it just like other apps.

  18. Custom imported objects was an awesome update! Now let us share them with others.

    Finally allowing us to create and import custom made objects into home was a great step into making our VR homes truly unique. Now you should add some sort of community section for sharing those objects. Some people aren't that technically inclined/artistic or simply don't have time for the hours of work it takes, but allowing them to easily download awesome content from other users who are and do is a must. Personally I'd love to share some of the objects I've made already with other users. Like Longclaw (jon snows sword from GOT) and I'd love to see what…

  19. Allow games from Unknown Sources (Steam) as Cartridges and Boxes

    Adding to that, allow us to add game images (StoreAssets) to said Steam games from the desktop app.

  20. Dim the lights in Rift Home

    The lights in Home 2.0 are too bright to comfortably watch TV with the broadcast feature. Would like to be able to dim the lights.
