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. Old void looks much better

    The old void with 'infinite' grid looked much better.

    It was cosy, futuristic and felt comfortable and safe compared to the new gray void.

    Thanks for submitting this feedback. This is an overdue update, but the grid style void has been implemented. The previous blank gray void should not be visible at this time. Thanks!

  2. Allow organisation of library through categories.

    Simple really.

    Please let us categorize our games. Example: Favorites, multiplayer, creative, app, vr experience, arcade shooter, simulator.

    My library has become so large & it's not getting any smaller.

    Thanks for submitting this idea! Categories have been introduced to the Library section of the Oculus software in the form of the Filters feature. In Library, click the Filters button in the top right to see a variety of different categories that should help you better navigate your games and apps. We hope you like it! There is a separate idea for marking certain items as ‘favorites’ here: https://rift.uservoice.com/forums/918556-oculus-rift/suggestions/32691043-set-apps-in-library-as-favorites-with-ability-to-s

  3. Let us completely delete games and apps from our oculus account..

    Having the games stay on your account as "not installed" when you want to completely delete them is stupid, please fix this i love u bois

    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!

  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. Dash cannot interact with Discord.

    Can't interact with Discord at all with Dash. Will be the most common reason I remove my Rift to use.

  6. Add Mirrors / closet room

    In the old home you could customize your Avatar and be taken to a closet room with a mirror to see yourself.
    Implement that in a style like RecRoom VR.
    Let us place a mirror which opens up a menu when touched to customize the avatar. That would make the room more "alive" so you can choose a new outfit before "heading out" into the World.

    Good news! An avatar editor mirror was added to Home as part of a previous software update. You can find this item in your inventory and place it anywhere in your Home. We hope you like it!

  7. 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!

  8. 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.

  9. Translate Desktop App to more Non English languages

    One year after Touch Launch, the Desktop app still doesn't support some of the languages with more speakers in the world as Spanish, Mandarin, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Japanese, ...

    You have made a really great work with the update, but the non English Speakers can't enjoy it at 100%. Please, listen the non- english speakers and translate the Desktop App and Dash to those languages. Thank you.

    Thanks again for submitting this idea! As mentioned below, we added nine additional languages last year. You can set the Oculus software language by navigating to Settings > General > Language Preference. These have exited the beta phase and are now fully implemented. Our team continues to work towards on adding more languages over time, and we greatly appreciate your patience while this work takes place. If you have any feedback on our language options, please let us know!

  10. 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!

  11. 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!

  12. 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!

  13. Add a door system and the capacity to create different room of different sizes

    when you teleport to the door that you placed you get teleported to that new room you created.
    i would definitely want to create one room specially for watching movie and in future (when we got better resolution) would make an office space as well.

    Thanks for voting up this idea. This functionality can be achieved using the Gateway from your inventory. Simply create a second home, add a Gateway to each that links to the other, and your spaces will be linked for easily travel between the two! You can also take advantage of the Home templates to have one of the Homes be a dedicated theater. Enjoy!

  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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.)

    - Adding outside environment (360/Panorama or ordinary photos as background outside windows/openings/doors.)

    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!
