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. Ability to opt out of new "lifelike avatars"

    I recently accidentally clicked on this mirror that had appeared in my home (entirely unsolicited) which is an interface for setting up a new "life-like" avatar. The issue is that as soon as I clicked on the mirror a new randomized avatar was created and forced on me. I do not want this avatar, I do not want ANY of the new "life-like" customizable avatar; I want the old "ghost hands" default back. There appears to be no option to undo this change, but I absolutely hate the new avatars, they're deeply annoying.

    Please allow the option to disable the…

  3. Support original Rift users by letting them buy replacement controllers and accessories

    Facebook did a great job providing accessories for the original Rift until recently. Now I can't buy a replacement controller or headset wire from the store. Wires are going for $150 on amazon. Is this because of manufacturing problems, or because Facebook decided to stop supporting Rift just three and a half years after launching oculus touch? Facebook: support your hardware for at least 10 years if possible!

  4. A program to help people in nursing homes who do not have the ability to communicate with their care giver.

    Having used the oculus for the last 2 years he came to me that this technology could be used to help elderly people who are incapacitated on able to speak or communicate with their care givers. A simple platform that would allow the person to wear a Headset and through the program and the use of just their eyes be able to answer simple questions yes or no things or things that they may want or need. My mom is in a nursing home in her late eighties and is totally in capacitated unable to speak or use her hands…

  7. More audio control for both Dashboard and Home

    Please, please , please! Add audio controls for the music from the Dashboard! I cannot be on the desktop and listen to this music while watching a video from the desktop feed. Either I couldn't find it, which is bad, or its not there, which is ver very bad.

    And from the Home, I can turn off the music but the ambiant sound his still there, so I turn off sfx but now I loose the interactions sound, these are not the same! Who is in charge of the audio over at Oculus!

  8. Hold Menu Button on the Controller for x seconds to access it (prevents accidentally opening up the oculus home screen)

    How about implementing a Feature in the Options Menu to let's say "keep pressed the Oculus Home Button for at least 2 Seconds to activate the Menu"?

    Same maybe for the left button (since this opens up Steam VR Settings).

    I think this shouldn't be a big thing to implement and I guess I'm not the only person on earth with this "problem".

  9. Ok, lets try this again...

    I have already left a message once, now that I am reading into the ant+ standard and figuring out the components of the touch controller , I am hoping to start disecting the firmware depending on what programmer I need and when I get the parts to do it. The same chip exists in al three devices and the controllers could be used independantly with a firmware update. If you have no interest fine, but people have a right to repair, and considering that they can be purchased seperately, I think your business model is unfair. If I want to…

  11. Mouse support (Technical principle)

    Like the gamepad support lastly added (wishing more controls over the activation options for that though), a mouse support following the aim mechanism of the head-aiming with gamepad, but with the difference of the origin point of the line :

    taking the head position variables at the recenter/reset moment, and discarding the head's inclinations, the mouse moves the target point of the line on a the sphere surface with the center of origin matching the head's one . The trick would be disabling the mouse aiming as the line targets the dash's desktop screenspace when activated. (colision detection possibly avoided…

  12. Make a Displayport to HDMI or to USB C, or Update Firmware to Support 3rd Party Adaptors

    Make a DisplayPort to HDMI or USB C adapter as many third party ones dont work and may people have "VR Ready" gaming laptops but dont have display ports/MiniDP which dont allow them to use their Rift S. dont know why the company havnt made a fix for this issue over the years, but now with new technological advancements many laptops are able to witstand large amounts of power (core i7 and up and even RTX 2080+ but cant use the rift S simply because of ONE CABLE, and many laptop comanys making the switch over to USB C outputs

  13. by releasing the independant drivers for the sensors/cameras and the touch drivers to use seperately of the headset.

    the nRF51822 chips should work independently of the headset(if you must know mine broke) and your set up would be a lot handier if it could be integrated into setups and reach a larger market. it would save me a lot of headaches and determine what level i continue to use your hardware. I am a just a guy with a will,soldering iron and a fair amount of tech knowledge, i will admit i am on a learning curve here but i will give it a go, it would be preferable to have help or a company with a kind…

  14. Option to set "pass-through" mode as default home environment, just like in Oculus Quest (1 and 2).

    Using the oculus virtual home would be great for productivity work if able to keep a general sense of actual surroundings. In this way, the user can experience an Augmented Reality type of workflow with virtual desktops, browsers, etc. while also able to freely navigate the physical space without the need to remove the headset.

    I've used Microsoft HoloLens and loved the potential, but the screens were more difficult for me to see albeit with an unobstructed view of the real world. I would rather have better quality screens at the expense of real-world detail, and I realize this is…

  15. Facebook Account Conversion Prompt Displaying Every Time Headset Removed and Put On

    This is specifically an issue with Oculus Desktop. Currently, if you have not yet been able to convert your Oculus account, you are presented with a conversion prompt. The issue is that this is prompt is displayed every time the headset is put on, even if you went through the prompt a moment before. This causes significant disruption for users who have not yet been able to merge the account especially developers who frequently switch back and forth between sessions in and out of VR. An alternative behavior would be to display the prompt when Oculus Desktop is first launched…

  16. To get more tracking options

    So i have an oculus rift dk2 but i can't afford the touch controllers. I happen to have a few smartphones, a kinect and wiimotes laying around the house. What i have tried for now is driver4vr but it requires steamvr and it doesn't work with roblox vr. Smartphones have a lot of potential, there is games like just dance that have enabled phone controller support and it works really really well. If you could do something like this, i would be super thankful. It would be also a nice replacement if somebody accidentally breaks their controller and can't get…

  17. Fixing the compatibility issue of new Nvidia drivers with Oculus Mediums stamp creation

    Oculus Medium´s stamp creation does not work with graphics driver versions 436.30 of the RTX-series and up and causes crashes upon attempting to make a stamp. From what the linked forum post says it also concerns other graphics card series of Nvidia.
    https://forums.oculusvr.com/community/discussion/81009/medium-crashes-stamp-creation-or-import-help-solved#latest
    This issue has been confirmed upon sending a full crashlog to the Oculus Support.
    Since the update can not be indefinitely avoided it would be very needed to fix this incompatibility.
    Thank you!

  19. Match the G2 graphics or surpass them. The oculus graphics are so ****** I can't tell a P-47 from a BF-109 from a very short distance away.

    Improve the refresh rate. If heat was a concern, instead of cheaping out and limiting it, think out side the box and find a way to cool it. Or use parts that are not so heat sensitive. Perhaps you don't realize how many people want VR for flight combat sims. You can not effectively play if you can not see enough detail to ID a plane because the screen is to blurry.

  20. Allow us to buy individual pieces

    Please make small parts available for purchase such as battery covers, cables and head straps. These are the most likely parts to be damaged and should be able to be replaced.
