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. 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!

  2. Clocks.

    You can get the time up from settings, but I would love to have a variety of functional clocks that show the system time - possibly even ones that can be set to a time offset for gaming with friends in other timezones.

    Grandfather clocks, carriage clocks, futuristic clocks, even some funkier things, like waterclocks and hourglasses that can be touched for the time.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Please continue selling Rift CV1 spares for a reasonable time after sale of last CV1 (March 2019)

    Rift CV1 owners are concerned at the recent decision to stop selling the Rift CV1 accessories only 6 months after the sale of the last headset. Of particular concern is the lack headset cable which is probably the most fragile component. The expectation that we should buy a whole new headset if this $50 part fails is a major concern.

    Many circumstances can occur outside of warranty conditions like

    * pets can chew this cable
    * accidental twisting over time fatigues the cable
    * accidental falls can pull the cable from the PC

    All these circumstances are not Oculus' fault…

    -snowing..
    -stormy
    -seasonal effects
    -sun/moon cycle..depending on your local time

  9. Add two-hand gestures to resize windows

    Grabbing a screen with the second hand should allow you to resize the window horizontally or vertically.

  10. Integrate smartphones into dash.

    I hate having to remove my HMD to check for calls or texts. A virtual big phone with a mirror screen of my phones actual screen would be awesome.

  11. Allow objects to be resized

    You can rotate objects but you can't make them bigger or smaller!

  13. Option to show the center of the play-area in-game.

    Some games offer this option, but it would be very useful to be able to permanently display the center of the play-area using the Guardian settings.

    Allow us to set the size, color and transparency for bonus points.

  14. 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.

  15. Add 'Quick Launch' tab for Desktop Apps

    Right now, if I wanted to open say, Spotify, as a "pulled out" app, I have to, go to the Oculus Desktop tab, navigate my desktop, go to my windows start menu, open Spotify, then 'grab it out', then close Oculus Desktop.

    Lots of manual effort, very clunky.

    What I'd like is a tab to the left of Oculus Desktop called 'Quick Launch', where I can add my favorite apps (eg. Chrome, Spotify, Discord, Netflix) as a sort of "speed dial".

    Kind of like the Windows Start Menu, except it's within VR, and when I launch any of these apps…

  16. Link with Spotify

    Not sure if would be possible, but it'd be cool if we could link our account with Spotify and have a virtual stereo in the room which plays our music, or when people visit our room it shows our current listening.

  17. Allow more customization of Guardian

    Allowing more customization of the guardian wall would have a positive impact on user experience. Many of us already know the bounds of our playspace, and don't need the thick, bright guardian wall popping up all the time, but also want more notice than the floor square. This is especially true now that the sensitivity of when the wall appears has increased with the Core 2.0 beta. Some welcome customization options would be the following:

    1) Guardian wall sensitivity slider
    2) Guardian wall opacity slider
    3) Guardian wall line thickness slider
    4) Guardian wall color options
    5) Guardian wall texture…

    Hi all! Thanks for submitting and voting for this idea.

    We recently added the ability to adjust the Guardian sensitivity, which you can find in the settings menu while in VR.

    Since this idea is a bit more expansive in terms of what is being asked for, we’re going to leave this open for voting. We hope you enjoy the new Guardian settings that have been added in the meantime!

  18. 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 :/

  19. Create a "Clean House" option to reset interactive items to a default position

    The 1.21 "Lock" functionality is a good start, but needs to be extended.

    Interactive items - guns, swords, books, etc.- should have an initial default position, but still be movable even in "Lock" mode. This lets you (and Home guests) shoot hoops, knock down domino trails made of books, etc., without accidentally moving furniture.

    Then, offer a "Clean House" button which resets the interactive objects back to the previously-set default positions with a single click. This allows you to create a weapon rack, or put all the ping-pong and golf balls in a neat spot, have your cartridges ordered how…
