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. Add hot-keys for accessing Dash and Passthrough with the keyboard

    Add the ability to use a keyboard hot-key instead of the Oculus button on the handcontrollers for accessing Dash and Passthrough. Also make it possible to move the pointer and click on buttons inside Dash with the mouse so we dont need to use the handcontrollers. If you dont add the mouse support it would be enough with the Oculus button and a couple of the other buttons on the controller so Dash could be used with those keyboard shortcuts togeather with moving the pointer dot with the head.

    Make note of the following:

  2. Add keyboard hand tracking (passtrough) on your real keyboard if you sit behind a desk

    If we could use a keyboard, (shown in vr, but tracked the real hand movement on keys) that would be a killer feature for using the headset as a monitor

  3. Option to hide real name

    Real name appears in various menus (most notably on the dash) which is problematic for various reasons, especially for those who wish to stream on public platforms (Twitch, etc.). There's no need to see your own name (you presumably already know it), but with the tightest privacy settings being 'Only You' this doesn't help if you want to broadcast what 'only you' can see.

  5. Hold Menu Button on the Controller for x seconds to access it (prevents accidentally opening up the oculus home screen)

    How about implementing a Feature in the Options Menu to let's say "keep pressed the Oculus Home Button for at least 2 Seconds to activate the Menu"?

    Same maybe for the left button (since this opens up Steam VR Settings).

    I think this shouldn't be a big thing to implement and I guess I'm not the only person on earth with this "problem".

  6. Add controller calibration and customization options

    I've recently run into a problem with my controllers where one of my grip buttons has physically malfunctioned so that it is slightly pressed in, about 15-20% of it's range. This causes problems with some games due to the fact that the entire range is needed for interactions, and it's causing the grip release to be lagged. I believe this problem, and others like it, could be fixed with a menu where you can calibrate and adjust deadzones on the sensitive parts of the controller, as full movement and precision is needed for nearly any action in vr controls.

  7. Mouse support (Technical principle)

    Like the gamepad support lastly added (wishing more controls over the activation options for that though), a mouse support following the aim mechanism of the head-aiming with gamepad, but with the difference of the origin point of the line :

    taking the head position variables at the recenter/reset moment, and discarding the head's inclinations, the mouse moves the target point of the line on a the sphere surface with the center of origin matching the head's one . The trick would be disabling the mouse aiming as the line targets the dash's desktop screenspace when activated. (colision detection possibly avoided…

  8. Hide Virtual Desktop windows from Mirror for us who want to Stream Oculus Games!

    VR Is getting more mainstream and the Streams are flying off the shelves, but most of us need to read the chat and be able to interact with our viewers without the pinned window showing up in the Oculus mirror.

    I use the Mirror because of its 1:1 setting which is the best format for streaming to mobile devices as most of our viewers are on a Mobile phone watching though Facebook Level up.

  9. Allow oculus to run unknown sources without internet

    It is incredibly annoying if you don't have internet, and you can't play your favourite games that happen to not be on oculus.

  10. Please add option to turn off haptics

    Please add option to disable the haptics.. there are oculus only games that cannot be played because the option to turn off haptics is not there. On all steam games once the haptics are turned off the games run smooth with no issues.. so we need this option in order to further purchase oculus games.

  12. 3D Guardian

    Okay so i'd like the option to add more stuff to the guardian. Like overlapping areas and such. I play VR in 2 area at my computer and in an open space in my room. One for sitting and one for standing. But i'd love to mark things in 3D for eaxmple my bed i would love to mark the height of the bed in the guardian so i know that reaching over through the guardian is fine but i just can't walk there. And i have a small filling cabinet which would make the area alot bigger if i…

  13. Allow users to manually set height.

    If I want to sit when I'm interacting with Home, or with any of the demo programs, my POV is far too low. I'd like to be able to tell Oculus that I'm sitting and that I want my POV to be set for someone my height. Some games allow this, but I'd like it baked-in.

  14. Voice dictation

    Typing in VR takes a long time and is super annoying. Adding a voice dictation button somewhere on the keyboard would make that process a whole lot easier, especially when communicating on chat apps without getting out of the VR headset.

  15. Let us launch VR games from the desktop mode/view inside the headset

    Exactly what it says on the title.

    I find it bizarre that I can open up and desktop view and interact with my PC screen from inside the headset, but when I try to click and run one of my VR games/apps from the Oculus desktop app as viewed in desktop mode on the headset, it doesn't work (just loads it in a floating 2D screen instead).

    Clearly, if I'm wearing the VR headset, looking at my desktop in there, and I click one of the VR games/apps in the Oculus desktop app, I actually want to play it properly…

  16. Dash and Menu Color Customization

    The ability to change the color of the dash and of the menu panels would be interesting, along with the ability to change the texture that they appear in, maybe something other than matte such as like a glossy thing, or maybe it looks like felt, something along those lines. Another idea is to allow for the creation and use of skins on them, so they someone can customize their dash to have their own icons for everything on their dash, and to have a custom skin theme for their dash and their menu. That would be so cool.

  17. On the dash virtual desktop, please enable right and middle click and drag functions

    Many applications use right and middle clicks and drags. Please add this functionality to the Dash virtual desktop. Having to take off the headset to use the system desktop breaks the flow.

  18. Let pass through camera on Rift S to see my physical keyboard.

    I can't do any of the keyboard shortcuts for photoshop, and won't be able to fully have any productivity on virtual desktop. The only thing I"m missing is the keyboard. HTC vive has a program called "FragmentVR" that allows a window. Even better would be to identify the keyboard, and show a photogrammetry version of the keyboard with clearer keys, and shadow of the hand overlapping it.

  19. Give option to save the Dash panel layout.

    Every time I start Oculus, only the "Explore" panel appears, which I barely use at all. Every single time I need to set up my own layout, reopen, resize, and reposition every panel that I usually use. It can be a real drag. Just let us save our own layouts please.
    In fact, that should have been the "Pin to Experience" buttons function in the first place.

  20. Option to disable/limit CPU hungry Dash features for users with low spec machines

    A number of users with under performing computers are having issues with Dash 2.0 taking away performance from VR games.

    If the CPU/GPU hungry features had an option to disable or limit Dash 2.0 impact it might help.
