Optical handtracking for Rift S
Please make sure that - alongside Quest - Rift S will also get optical hand tracking. Parity between the headsets should be a high priority. Currently there's no clear commitment either way and Rift S users shouldn't be left out if there's not a serious, technical reason.

The user base has to show interest for the Rift S and more importantly ... MONEY... On the quest the oculus store is your only option, just like on iOS you only have the app store and thats it. On the Rift S you most likely will buy steam geams and from other sources. In the other hand the quest locks you into the oculus ecosystem. In the long run this is the backside of Facebook as a parent company. You can beg for Oculus to change their mind, but facebook probably not interested in satisfying the VR enthusiast market. Valve makes games, valve's primary audiance is gamers so thats what they are focused on. Facebook wants the general audience and candycrush as their most interesting game for the quest.

Dear Kind & Esteemed Oculus Team,
I believe all of the Rift S owners are wondering why we dont have the Hand Gesture to test out yet. We have put alot of trust and faith in the Oculus brand and we have been supporting Oculus through good times and bad times in these number of years. You have always given us the VR technology edge over your competitors.
The Rift S is an amazing VR headset that should not be left out of your Research and Development. I hope that this request reaches to your management team and please provide your loving and loyal user base with a simple and everlasting kind gesture to us. We appreciate all efforts as the consumer and privileged owners of the Oculus Rift S and would like to thank you from the very bottom of our hearts.
Thank you and God Bless your team and your families for taking time to work and provide your user base with your dedicated support and more oculus devices during these uncertain pandemic times.
It's certainly a strange choice to use hand-tracking on the Quest before the Rift S, especially if you're supposedly just testing it out. Wouldn't it make more sense to test it out on the technical predecessor? On top of that, the Rift S should have fewer limitations in regards to tech.
Hand tracking would objectivly make the rift S a better VR experience than the more expensive valve index.
It would be an absolute game changer.
Please please please include handtracking on the Rift S.
i will be sad if it not will come
for rift s

Yes, WE THE PEOPLE need handtracking! Please deliver Oculus, I would love to play DCS with hand tracking, other hand tracking solutions cost more than your headset.
I am thinking about buying a rift s because it’s so good but if you ain’t gonna ever care about the rift s then I am buying a vive or index please don’t make me have to do that

I'm did buy the best option, to have the best experience and updates. But we don't have that, we were forgotten... This is a big disrespect with your clients that did buy the best product. I'm very disappointed with OCULUS company and if the comunit of Rift S not receive more relevant updates and Handtracking, I believe that a lot of us we will change the VR company option.

It would be a big mistake to forego bringing hand tracking to Rift S. If you didn't want to support two platforms, then you shouldn't have released two!
Still waiting for hand tracking
The Rift S seems to be treated like the black sheep in the fold. I hope I don't regret buying it.
Hand tracking needed for flight simulation.
Hand tracking is a must, for sure. If it can be done, it should be. Thanks
I agree with many others, and came here just to vote on this. I just bought a Rift S, specifically because it's PC powered & has (had??) better support for other apps. However, it really seems like it's now been forgotten and everything is about the Quest.
