Oculus Rift S and Rift

Thanks for helping us improve Oculus Rift! We're now taking all suggestions on our Oculus Community Forums. All suggestions, votes, and comments from here have been migrated, along with matching accounts. We appreciate you taking the time to share, and are looking forward to seeing you on our broader community.

As a reminder, topics are labeled in the following areas:
  • Companion App: This category is for feedback relating to the Oculus mobile app, specifically for how the mobile app interacts with the Oculus Go platform.
  • Core Software: All Oculus Go main menu, navigation, and settings feedback should be left under this category.
  • First Party Apps: This category is for in-VR apps created by Oculus, like Venues and Rooms.
  • General: Use this category for any feedback that doesn’t fit neatly into one of the other more specific categories.
  • Store: The place where all VR app purchasing takes place.


  1. Preset move locations

    Allow creation of set teleport locations within home

    For example, I would love to set a point near cartridge table that is conveniently placed relative to my real room. Just so I wouldn't have to readjust the teleport location when i bump into walls.

  2. Allow naming of sensor devices.

    I would like to name my sensors so that when an issue is reported I don't have to play the randomly unplug sensors game to find out which one is having an issue.

  3. Touch shortcut for keyboard show/hide

    Finding the show keyboard button is a pain. A method for showing/hiding the keyboard - say pressing B or Y - would be useful for quickly pulling it up.

  4. Remove 'Controller' icon from devices when Touch is set up and no gamepad is connected

    A gamepad hasn't been included with the Rift for many months now, so it shouldn't be considered an essential component anymore.

    When you have Touch installed, but a gamepad off, the Gamepad is still listed in devices, annoyingly. Just as 'Off' though.

    This behaviour doesn't exist for the Remote.

    It's annoying because with 3 sensors it means that the Gamepad spills onto a new line.

    (Just a minor visual thing, but still annoying)

  5. Christmas Tree

    Any chance we could get a Christmas tree and some Christmas decorations before Christmas? I know this is not something EVERYBODY would want, but it would be a nice seasonal addition for our homes.

    I am loving the new update so much! Thanks for all the hard work!

  6. add "recenter" option

    There is no option to recenter orientation in Oculus Home.
    It's fixed to a specific position according to the sensors.

    Should allow recentering via push&hold of one of the touch's joystick like in most games

  7. Move window control bar to the top

    The black control bar with window controls (pin, minimize, keyboard) is currently at the bottom of all windows.
    It is commonly hidden behind the dash panel when sitting down.

    Potentially move it to the top of the window and the controls to the center of the bar.

  8. 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!

  9. Vertical monitor orientation support

    Portrait mode vertically oriented monitors appear rotated with a wrong aspect ratio, and tear-out window panels display the wrong part of the desktop sideways.

  10. Show Windows Notifications as notifications in Dash

    Would love to see the ability to get Windows app notifications in the same way we get friend invite notifications within Dash. Would be even cooler if we could select one and have it open the notifying app while we’re in VR

  11. Pin window to Touch controller

    currently, desktop windows seem to be pinned to the real playspace area.
    when playing shooters, this gets in the way :/

  12. Keyboard presses wrong key when one of the controlers hasnt released trigger yet.

    When typing on the keyboard with two controllers while pressing the trigger to type a letter with let's say right controller and before releasing right trigger you press left trigger it registers another press of the right controller letter.

  13. Always show nickname instead of real name

    It's difficult to remain anonymous while streaming VR using Oculus software because your real name is shown in multiple places with no way to hide it. A simple toggle should replace your real name everywhere with the nickname you've set.

  14. The controls on how to interact with Oculus Home is initially blocked by tons of objects such as UI

    When first entering Oculus home, When looking down at my controllers to see what buttons were mapped to, the UI blocked it and I had to almost crouch or bend around to see what was going on. Perhaps force a short tutorial in beginning instead of just throwing people into it.

  15. I was a bit confused with how to switch between desktop and library

    As I was in the store app on Dash, I had the desktop app open as well. When I tried to change to my library, it said please wait as it was trying to close the store app. This looped until I just turned off my rift. I also don't think its a good idea to be able to move the desktop screen closer and further away because new users can accidentally do that and not understand what is going on.

  16. Save Home customization throughout the Beta > Public process

    The last thing I think any user wants is to lose any items or customizations to their Home space throughout the Beta update process. Please make sure that when updates get released to the Beta track (and then finally to Public track) that we don't lose any of what we created in our Home space!

  17. 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.

  18. Separate Cartridges and Boxes from Library Objects

    It is cluttered having 2 objects for each game in one category.

  19. Don't hide prices for applications that you already own

    It would be nice, if when you view the store page for an item, if it would still show you the price/discount for things that you already own. This makes it easier to recommend good games to friends (hey, my favorite game is only $10!), and it will help out when game gifting is inevitably added. I understand why it is currently replaced with the 'Start' option, but then it should just put the price somewhere else on the store page.

    Also, woo, the first feedback!
