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. I see a way to strengthen the VR exploration by adding uses.

    Additional uses for this technology could be to have a headset with specific abilities available in critical locations for helping desperate people in desperate situations. These could have an added forward facing camera to give the wearer and supervisor in a different location real imagery along with 2-way communication between point and superviser. Such could be in an unmaned nature lodge with lifesaving medical procedures. They could be worn by a team of people under the guidance of a manager when doing such as trying to find a child lost in a forest. A headset could even find a place…

  2. Differentiating contrast between Desktop mode and Dash mode

    It can be difficult to differentiate the difference between windows/apps pulled out of the Desktop mode window, and onto the Dash, and difficult to tell when the desktop mode is open. The Desktop mode window also sits on top of the dash.

    It would make things clearer if the Desktop mode window had a color configurable border around it. Wouldn't have to be too thick or pronounced.

  4. Fling to dismiss windows

    VR with hand presence should be a very natural process. Manipulating the environment directly rather than through button presses should be the end goal of any UX design in VR.

    With that in mind, I'd suggest allowing windows to be dismissed by grabbing and flinging them away, or at least dropping them in or flinging them toward a trash icon. Pushing a button is fiddly, and while there are other suggestions (e.g. pressing another button while holding the window) I think the more hands-on approach would feel more natural.

    Obviously this needs to go alongside other methods for non-Touch configurations.

  5. [Bug] Combo boxes don't show up for dragged apps (like Oculus Debug Tool visible hud options)

    The combo box is shown in the desktop view but not if I pulled the oculus debug tool out as a separate app.

  6. Put basic actions at the top level of Dash

    In the previous Void menu, most basic actions where immediately there: reset view, turn off Guardian.

    Now I have to go down at least one or more levels to get to them.

    Could you add a row of basic actions (like before) above or to the side of the Dash?

    As someone who switches between room-scale and seated vr, I mostly used the menu to turn Guardion on or off. This has become less convenient in the current system.

  7. Allow simultaneous grid alignment AND object clipping

    Allow objects to align to a grid of the Home structure, but also allow objects to clip through one another. This is helpful in creating new structures from existing structures, without having to carefully, painstakingly align them manually if wanting to also make them clip through one another.

    For example, a large shelf will snap next to a second large shelf, but being able to clip the ends through one another slightly can make turn it into one large shelf.

  10. The Dash ribbon gets in the way of pressing the button to quit VR apps

    When you open Dash to quit a game, it's button ribbon is directly in between your hand and the close button, blocking you from pressing it without awkwardly reaching up over the ribbon.

  11. Add Close & or Pin buttons on Oculus desktop Monitor selection buttons on dash.

    Right now pinning monitors can be hard if the virtual display is set far or if their is multiple oculus windows in front of the virtual display.

  12. Show hidden icons (idea or its a bug)

    Spending quite a bit of time using the desktop view within Dash and one action I can not figure out, on the Windows 10 taskbar as with previous version there is an ^ bottom right that brings up hidden programs running steam, voice attack and other things, I have yet to figure a way to access that in the desktop mode, I can hover over it, use the same trigger I would use to select and run things but it will not raise and show what is hidden. Out of that desktop it is a simple left click (show hidden…

  14. Now Playing icon in Dash tricky to use

    If you have something other than the currently playing app visible in the "center" screen, I would expect pressing the button for the current app to show me the window with Recenter/Quit. Instead, it quits Dash and I have to open it again.

    I would think quitting Dash would be unnecessary because it's easy to just use the Oculus button.

  15. Add quick Text / Macros

    It would be awesome to have some "quick access" buttons that you can define on your Dash.
    For example - Add a second slide-out row below the DASH menu.

    Click on a window that is popped out and click on an action that you defined.

    Example:
    Telegram / Skype / Whatsapp etc.
    - Add quick action to send message in current window:
    - "I'm in VR right now - calling you back in a few."
    - "Hey, I'm in Teamspeak / Discord if you want to talk - Enjoying VR right now!"

    To keep it simple:
    One row of items…

  16. FYI Only - Google Maps Very Unstable In Dash

    Google Maps is flaky at best in Dash. Sometimes commands work, most times they don't and with no particular pattern. Also, the zoom control with the joy stick only gets smooth in Chrome if hardware acceleration is activated in settings. This is not good because HA screws up YouTube sound synchronization (a known problem). Also the street view icon it totally erratic both on and off as is picture activation. Also highlighting text for copy and paste is totally erratic.

  18. Change window resolution when resizing

    Since most of the desktop function from inside dash will be used to browser the web, it would be amazing if windows can change resolution when being resolution. As most of the web is responsive these days, the web would automatically adapt to lower resolution and display mobile-like version, therefore making even small and distant windows possible in VR.

  19. Make New Friends

    The Make New Friends option in the Home desktop app should be easily accessable with dash while in a game.

  20. I was a bit confused with how to switch between desktop and library

    As I was in the store app on Dash, I had the desktop app open as well. When I tried to change to my library, it said please wait as it was trying to close the store app. This looped until I just turned off my rift. I also don't think its a good idea to be able to move the desktop screen closer and further away because new users can accidentally do that and not understand what is going on.
