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. Inner & Outer Guardian Boundaries for Accessories (+Editor)

    While there are tools out there that allow you to edit the guardian boundary (to make it nice and pretty for the OCD like me), I'd really like to see a built in guardian editor that additionally allows smaller, custom outlines to be placed inside or outside the main guardian boundary.

    As an example, when guardian is showing, I'd like to able to mark additional areas where non wired accessories such as keyboards, mice, etc. may be placed. This would be incredibly useful for those who have a dedicated remote VR room that is not connected to their main gameplay…

  2. Add HAL 9000 with Voice command

    you could ask HAL 9000 to start a game, search video on YouTube, invite your friend to your virtual home ( like a phone call hologram ) and so on...

  5. Integration of Twitch Streamer Settings

    Not a lot of options right now in regards to streaming VR setups.. it'd be awesome if Home could have a few settings in regards to streaming & communicating with Twitch & Twitch Chat.

    The chat pullouts right now are fantastic, but this need to be expanded into support for Steam games as well in order to make it fully functional. As of right now it only works with Oculus games (with the game dev updaing their support.) Not all games are on home, and not all home games are on steam either - the best ones will be cross…

  6. Make New Friends

    The Make New Friends option in the Home desktop app should be easily accessable with dash while in a game.

  7. Separate rooms for separate profiles

    It would be nice if sharing the Rift with the family meant they had their own Avatar in Home, and if not their own house, then maybe their own rooms. By that I mean that if you go into that room, you can launch Rift games from there and you'll have your own settings and save games. Would make sharing the Rift with guests a lot better too... Just go to the guest room.

  8. place and pin an image of keyboard

    Dear Oculus, maybe you can implement this: outline your keyboard using Touch controller... take a picture of it and place it as overlay there using Touch controller. Then no need to track as long as it stays still

    Would also love to do this with, say, picture of keyboard instrument of choice

  9. Master control list and button mapping.

    I would really like a master list of the controls and a button map. I am not always sure if I'm missing a feature or doing something wrong because not all functions are obvious.

    How do I use right-mouse button with left-right agnostic touch controls?
    Is there a way to click middle mouse button on touch?
    Are there gestures or combinations of buttons to keyboard/mouse functions?

    Separately, I really want a way to remap buttons on my touch controls to make the most of the buttons available.

  10. Now Playing icon in Dash tricky to use

    If you have something other than the currently playing app visible in the "center" screen, I would expect pressing the button for the current app to show me the window with Recenter/Quit. Instead, it quits Dash and I have to open it again.

    I would think quitting Dash would be unnecessary because it's easy to just use the Oculus button.

  12. Some kind of tool or system for aligning and distributing arrays of objects.

    Lining up hundreds of achievements and game boxes could take seconds, but instead its hours of painstaking hand placement? XD

  15. The store in its current form is either redundant or slightly feature poor.

    The store space is now a separate one from our home spaces but still accessible there in a menu. Why not keep them more closely linked and at most make the store space a dynamic doorway/portal instead of a fully separate (yet non-interactive) instance. I would prefer everything to be quickly accessible instead of having to go through a loading screen that leads to a redundant and slightly barebones storefront. I would also prefer the behavior in both to be consistent.

    So either let us walk/teleport around and interact more in the store, or beef up the store menu in…

  16. Guardian Disable by app/game

    Make it so you can set a default by game so when you play a seated game you dont have to go manually turn it off every time.

  17. A library for desktop programs.

    Basically being able to choose certain programs that can launch in a seperate window instead of having to go to desktop then open a program, then create a window.

    So you could allow certain programs, this way they won't require as many steps, and you could control what programs someone can use if you're demoing it.

  19. Positional audio for desktop windows and app windows

    Audio is not positional for pinned windows. (I.e., it sounds like I'm in a small home theater, but it won't change when I'm moving my head or moving the windows).

    It'd be great if desktop windows and desktop apps could have positional audio, such that if I have a video playing to my right I can hear it in my right ear. But if I turn around I can hear it move over to my left ear etc
