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:

  • Companion App: This category is for feedback relating to the Oculus mobile app, specifically for how the mobile app interacts with the Rift platform.
  • 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.
  • First Party Apps: This category is for in-VR apps created by Oculus, like Medium and Quill.
  • 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. Fix tracking

    Thanks for submitting this idea. Tracking improvements for a variety of Touch controller positions were added as part of the July Rift and Rift S software update. If you continue to experience tracking issues, please contact Oculus support. Thanks!

    Hi all – thanks for voting for this idea. The static / white flash issue on Rift S was resolved with the 1.39.1 software update that went out last month. If you are still experiencing similar similar issues after receiving this software update, please contact Oculus support!

  3. Stay connected to Facebook once the user links an account

    When Oculus starts up, it attempts to link to my Facebook account. Every single time it prompts me, even though I've already linked the Oculus to my Facebook account. I could've done it 60 seconds ago, if I close the Oculus app and turn it back on, it's going to prompt me to link my Facebook account. It should just be linked until I unlink it a this point, which makes me think this could potentially be a bug.

  4. Let me play vader immortal

    Vader immortal is currently restricted to the quest. There is no reason to not put it on the rift other than to force people to buy the quest.

  5. Do not change the clock speeds of our components

    Since 1.34, clock speeds are being changed willy nilly all over the place.

    Many users report their clock speeds going down on both RAM and GPU from what they had set them to.

    This is unacceptable. Our hardware clock speeds are ours to choose, not Oculus' decision.

    Thanks for submitting this feedback. As part of the 1.35 Rift software update which began rolling out on 2/12/19, we resolved a Dash issue impacting memory clock speed on NVIDIA cards. As a result, you should no longer be experiencing decreased clock speeds. If you continue to encounter this issue after receiving the 1.35 software update, please contact Oculus Support: ocul.us/contact

  6. Long button press to get to the menu.

    Just got my Rift and while I really enjoy it there is nothing more frustrating that going to the menu for the 10th time in the middle of a Beat Saber song. An option to add a 2-3 second delay to the menu buttons would be great.

    Thanks for your submission. As mentioned in the comments below, this functionality can be enabled through an in-VR settings option. It was added through a previous software update. Thank you!

  7. CAN'T REACH OCULUS RUNTIME SERVICE.

    CAN'T REACH OCULUS RUNTIME SERVICE. FIX THIS PLEASE. I DIDN'T PAY $400 FOR A FKN BOAT ANCHOR.

  8. Open home to random users

    I don't know why, but I think it would be neat to let other users, not just friends, to randomly walk around your home if it were 'Open.' they couldn't touch anything or even say anything, they could just see what others had done and experience houses that others had created.

  9. Open all reward boxes at once

    The other day it took me nearly 15 minutes to open all of the reward boxes I had earned since the last time I checked. It would be nice to just have an "open all" button that just adds whatever I got to my inventory. Grabbing the box and throwing it is only a cool mechanic the first couple of times. After about 100 it starts to get really old.

    Great news: you now have the option to open all reward packs with a single click! We added a ‘Collect All’ button as part the August Rift S software update. Check it out, and claim those rewards!

  10. Allow Oculus Software (1.31) to run offline

    Since the forced update to version 1.31 the Oculus software won't launch if I'm offline.

    This is preventing me to calibrate my sensors, and I can't even play games that don't require internet connection.

    I understand that the new Oculus Home may require internet connection to run, but now I can't even start the software to configure my Rift.

    Please fix this issue.

    Thanks for submitting this feedback. While we cannot guarantee full software functionality without an internet connection, you should be able to open the Oculus software and launch non-internet dependent apps from your library. If you are experiencing something else, please open a ticket with Oculus support so our team can investigate more deeply. Thank you!

  11. Mobile app should be usable without oculus go.

    Mobile app should be usable without oculus go. Should be able to browse the entire store and pre-purchase stuff for my rift on pc. Kind of a easy / missed opportunity.

    Good news! This has been implemented! You can now use the Oculus companion app to browse apps for Oculus Rift S and Rift. Enjoy!

  12. Add a more aggressive guardian option and make it easy to switch between guardian modes

    Sometimes the guardian system's light blue grid is too gentle when I'm quickly moving my arms and body in certain games (like ping pong, sword fighting, etc.). It feels like a suggestion not a warning and it's easy to reach past the bounds. In certain games, it would be very helpful for peace of mind if the guardian turned more forceful when reaching past the bounds for certain games - it could turn the grid red, sound a loud audio alarm, vibrate the out of bounds controller, or begin occluding vision completely. If it feels like a warning I will…

    As part of a recent software update, we added the ability to adjust the sensitivity of Guardian. These options can be found within the settings menu while in VR and will allow you to adjust for your desired experience. Thanks for submitting this idea!

  13. Custom room layout & Scenery tool

    Would be nice to recreate real room layouts.

    Entering;
    - Basic floor layout.
    - Setting wall hight.
    - Adding Windows to walls (hight/width/distance from floor level)
    - Adding Doors to walls (open or closed/hight/width)
    - Adding Openings to walls (square or round/hight/width/distance from floor level)
    - Adding outside environment (360/Panorama or ordinary photos as background outside windows/openings/doors.)

  14. More Homes/Artifacts!

    In order to accommodate new custom artifacts from Medium, etc, and in anticipation of additional exterior “Surroundings”, we definitely need more Homes than the current 4 and we need to have the object limit raised from 500 to, say, 750. I have easily reached 500 items on 4 homes without displaying any game cartridges/boxes.

    Thanks for submitting this idea! Earlier this year, we upped the amount of Homes one user can create from 4 to 12. Enjoy!

  15. Invite friend to home (so that we can see each other)

    Currently, I can visit a friend's home, but we can't hang out together.

    I wish we could invite someone and then be able to see each other as well. So that we could play around with all the gadgets together or just hang out.

    Thanks for submitting this idea. The ability to visit and hang out with a friend in a Home was added as part of a previous software update. Enjoy!

  16. Patch notes

    In the Library/Updates view there's a place for patch notes with every app update, but the Oculus system updates never have any patch notes. Instead the patch notes are posted on the Oculus forums. It would be nice to see what I just installed without going to the forums.

    Facebook Spaces is another repeat offender. It seems so strange, since having a place to put the notes is your own feature.

    Thanks for submitting this idea. Patch notes have been added to the Oculus system software updates. To see what’s new in the latest Oculus system software update, navigate to Library > Updates and click the ’What’s New’ button under a recent Oculus system update.

  17. Let me Place the Home-Hopping Crystal Balls as Objects

    As someone who has really enjoyed setting up multiple homes, I think it would be awesome to be able to move between different homes without opening the Oculus Home Menu. For example, being able to place the "home-hopping" crystal balls as decorations on a desk or table would be great. Alternatively, being able to place wall-mounted portals through which we could teleport between homes might be even better.
    If such an object or portal could be set up between one of my homes and a friend's home, that would be better yet.

    Thanks for voting for this idea! Earlier in the year, we introduced Gateways, which let you link other Homes. These can be your other Homes or even a friend’s Home! You can find Gateways within your inventory while in Home. Enjoy!

  18. User-Created Wall Art

    Create blank picture frames of various sizes that the user can import their own photography/art into and be able to decorate their Dash 2.0 home with.
    More simply, allow the users to import their own photography/art into their Dash homes.

    This can be accomplished through a combination of importing UGC objects and utilizing the Oculus created Special Items. Marking as complete.

  19. Snap Turning

    Teleporting in home is ok since the area is small But it definitely needs Snap Turning to make it feel smother and more comfortable.

    Thanks for this submission. Snap turning in Oculus Home was added as part of a previous software update. You can control options in the Settings menu while in Oculus Home. Thanks!

  20. Import models from medium

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