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. Import models from medium

    the ability to import models from medium or from your pc into your home would be great.

    While you are not able to completely remove a game or app from your account, you are able to hide items, which we believe should help you ultimately accomplish what you’re trying to do with this idea. As a result, we’re marking this idea as complete.

    To hide a game or app, locate the item within your Library, click the three dots next to the item, and select ‘Hide’. This will hide that item by default within your library. Using the filters option within the top right of Library, you can choose ‘Hidden Apps’ to view all the otherwise hidden items. We hope this helps!

  3. Add a quick way to mute the microphone

    Please add a quick way to mute the microphone. I live in a noisy house and I don't want to bother anyone in a multiplayer game when my kid starts crying, my dog starts barking, my wife has to ask me something or I have to answer the phone.
    The noise might be annoying to other people in a multiplayer game and sometimes I'd like to keep an real-world conversation private.

    My preferred way for this to work would be to hold down the "Dash" (Universal Menu) button on the right controller for 2 seconds to mute/unmute the microphone.
    Double-pressing…

    Thanks for submitting this feature request! In the November 2018 Rift software update, our team added a new Dash rollover menu. Hover your pointer on the right side of the belt for instant access to mic volume (allowing you to mute), audio volume, Touch status, and to re-center your view. We hope this helps improve your Rift experience!

  4. Add a 'Mirror' in Home

    Would be brilliant to add a 'Mirror' so we can customise avatar in our home, it would add excellent immersion, every home needs a mirror right!

    Thanks for the idea! I can confirm that an Avatar editor mirror object for Oculus Home was added as part of the July 2018 Rift software update. We hope you’re enjoying it!

  5. Being able to save more than one Home

    I would like to customize different home to fit with the environment. For example, when I use the space background, I would like to set my home in a science fiction style but I would like a fantasy style for the one with the boat.

    Plus I could let my kid create his own environment without completely screwing mine like he does right now.

  6. Allow messaging between friends

    A messaging system like steam that is both available from the desktop app and in Dash.

  7. Lower or raise the dash bar

    The dash bar consistently gets in the way, and since touching a button activates it, I accidentally trigger buttons this way all the time.

    Thanks for this submission. The ability to raise or lower the Dash bar was added as part of a previous software update. You can grab it and move it to your desired height. Enjoy!

  8. tab

    Have a tab in the home switcher to visit "public" strangers homes straight
    from the ball menu!

    I love the idea of being able to visit your friend's Homes through the left menu by cracking the photo spheres, but there's no way currently within Home to visit homes set to "public". I'd love a public tab along with "your home" and "friends" that lets you visit other homes you haven't yet friended, but that are tagged as "public".

    We recently added the ability to mark your home as Public so that anyone can join. You can also see some cool Public Homes by checking out the Popular Places menu inside Home. Enjoy!

  9. Give my Home a public plaintext address or URI

    So I can post a link in any website, and any rifter browsing the site or ceveiving a private from me, could click on it can visit my Home (if open or authorised), or any other VR space (permanent or temporal).

    Mainly an idea to quickly setup VR chat groups from common web tools, chats, websites, reddits, etc. especially when multiplayer Homes are a reality. I'd like too throwaway/instant VR spaces and URI's created for this same purpose.

    Now that we have desktop in our space... leverage this and integrate!!!

    Great news! You can now share a web link for your homes in order to help others navigate them. Within the Oculus desktop software, click Friends in the bottom right, and then click your username to navigate to your user profile. Then click the three dots next to the “Visit Home” button in the top right and select Share Home. This will allow you to distribute a web link for your primary home. Enjoy!

  10. Multiplayer: connecting Friend's spaces

    Please allow us to create doors to our friend's spaces - this would be an amazingly immersive way of connecting with others through this wonderful virtual world you're letting us craft.

    I would love to be able to see into the "next" room fairly seamlessly, even if there was a load to actually go there.

    Thanks for submitting this idea! In software update 1.36, we added Gateways, which allow you to create an easy link between your own Home and other Homes. Place anywhere in your Home to expand your space and connect different themed rooms or public Homes. You can find Gateways in the Special Items section of your inventory!

  11. doors to games

    Instead of just cartridges, also add each game as a DOOR you can pin against a wall. Walking THROUGH the door starts the game.

    This way you can pin a bunch of games/demos you want to show to friends and family and it's very easy for them to wander over and step THROUGH each door into a new world

    Thanks for voting for this idea! As part of the July Rift S and Rift software update, we added the ability to launch into an app from Home by utilizing the Gateway object. Simply find the Gateway object in your Home inventory, place it in your Home, and link it to an app from your library. Enjoy!

  12. Design your own decor

    now that having your own home is a thing, it would be nice to import .obj's or have an option to add models you've already made in VR

  13. Customizable Home Floor Plan

    Currently everyone's Home is just the same room with different skins and items. Instead, we should be able to completely customize the floor plan, make different rooms/floors, etc.This would allow for much more interesting and personalized setups.

    Good news! The ability to import custom home environments / layouts was added as part of the February 1.35 Rift software update. Just like importing your own custom items, you can place a .glb file in your My Imports\Custom Homes folder and use that object as a template for brand new Homes!

  14. Add a way for users to add non-oculus content to their home room.

    Similar to anarchy arcade on steam,which was basically an early indy version of steam vr home, where you can place arcade cabinets, and customize what the cabinet launched by selecting an .exe from your computer, and add artwork by pasting a URL to an image, and even give the cabinet a preview video. you could also place screens around that could display a custom whatever, be it an image with a url, or a video from youtube via url, that could be clicked on to play. just add a way for us to add custom content from the internet. in…

    Marking this as completed, as the majority of this can be done through a combination of importing custom UGC objects and the Oculus provided Special Items.

    Thanks for this submission. As noted in the comment below, you are able to launch VR apps from Steam and other 3rd party sources by utilizing the unknown sources functionality within the Oculus software. We’re going to mark this item as completed. If you experience any issues utilizing this feature, please contact Oculus customer support! Thanks!

  16. Guardian system is now way too sensitive.

    It was not this sensitive before. Mine is on 99% of the time. It wasn't like this before the new update. Please reduce the sensitivity.

  17. Show reviews in web browser

    Usually I will browse the store in a web browser, and for some reason the user reviews don't show up. It's annoying to have to open the desktop app just to see reviews.

    Thanks for submitting this feedback. User reviews should now be visible on each app’s page within the browser version of the store. We hope you like it!

  18. Dont force oculus client to open itself

    No matter what I tried, the new Oculus client would reopen itself every time I closed it. I could see the screen in my rift light up, and hear sounds as I was loaded into home, with my rift sitting on a shelf, nothing triggering the proximity sensor (that im aware of). Eventually I was forced to roll back to stop it.

    Thanks for submitting this feedback through UserVoice. The behavior described in this post should not be occurring.

  19. Ipd status popping up during fast head movement

    When I'm playing superhot or space pirate trainer and do a fast dodge oculus displays my ipd for a split second. I played space pirate trainer a few days before the beta and never saw it happen.

  20. Provide more rooms in home

    Provide different basses for your homes main layout, allow users to add new rooms with different options for size and shape. As well as provide rooms for different functions (ex. Rift Games, movie, store, toy room, ect.)
