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 two-hand gestures to resize windows

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

  2. Smart Watch!

    Your phone rings when you're in VR. Your watch hand begins to vibrate, you hold up your hand to see the watch is illuminated and blinking. The watch projects a holographic display showing a picture of the caller along with the phone ui buttons. Voice is directed through the rift.

    This is made possible by the use of a mobile companion app connected to your PC. It is able to mirror your phone audio and video. Using the smart watch you have access to all of your usual apps without leaving the rift.

    Having the ability to view and pin…

  3. Show a "laptop is open" indicator or model in the way of your view in vr so you know to close your laptop so you don't punch your screen

    This applies to both the rift and rift s, but especially for the rift s. It's so easy to get in vr now that my biggest concern is I'm going to punch my laptop screen as it sits in my lap. As a developer I'm constantly in and out of vr and I don't have time to move my laptop. Detect if it's open and block my view with a warning until it's detected closed. Of course throw this into settings as an option but for the love of vr development think of all the laptops you'll be saving!

  4. 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 :/

  5. 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…

  6. Allow customization of how much the Dash darkens the game

    A recent change makes the game world darken a bit when you open the dash. Personally, I don't like this change, I play a lot of VRChat and other social apps and like to use my dash while chatting. I'll still be looking around and talking with people while the dash is open, so I want the game world to stay the same. I know others might like this change though. It would be nice if there was some control over how much the game was darkened, including an option to turn it off. Maybe a slider of some sort?…

  7. Push to Talk Universal Option

    I would like an option for push to talk that mutes unmutes my mic. The touch controllers have capacitive buttons and these would work perfectly for ptt (any would work) you rest thumb on the spot(not pressing) and it turns on mic.

    The thumb rest capacitive spot would be perfect to activate it or one of the menue buttons.

  8. Answer Facebook IM calls from the dash board.

    I'd like to be able to answer calls I receive in the FB messenger while in VR. Like just a simple button to click and answer with voice only while I'm in a game or in oculus home would be awesome. Thanks!

  9. The Rift Should Allow for a Longer HDMI and USB cable connection, even repeaters don't work.

    I've spent way too much money on trying to improve the cord management situation and nothing works. The Rift cables are too short and not even a repeater fixes the problem, it just won't detect it unless it's directly plugged in. Such a waste.

  11. Show Windows Notifications as notifications in Dash

    Would love to see the ability to get Windows app notifications in the same way we get friend invite notifications within Dash. Would be even cooler if we could select one and have it open the notifying app while we’re in VR

  13. Oculus Desktop with a full screen view (not TV size)

    Oculus question for New Oculus Rift S (no sensors but no HDMI only video display)
    Is the Oculus Desktop in the Oculus Rift S - that was your best feature? The only limitation was Oculus Desktop is a TV view (not full screen). Do you have a full headset view of the Oculus Desktop where developers can use your head movement to scroll around a 3D world - this option in either the Rift or Rift S would permit quick transitions for developers to put their existing 3D worlds in your headset?

    The only other limitation of your system -…

  14. Pairing your phone with rift

    Vive users have in-game notifications since longtime : "Don't worry about missing important notifications. While you're in any VR app, you'll see a notification when you have an incoming call, message, or upcoming calendar event."

    Why the **** rift users are so ignored by Oculus ?

    This is THE suggestion : https://www.vive.com/eu/support/vive/category_howto/pairing-your-phone-with-vive.html

    Please listen to us.

  15. Prevent window movement

    When Windows are pinned and Dash is opened up, the Dash AND pinned windows are "centered" around your current view.
    This messes up aligned windows in games.

    For example I have a window pinned in Elite Dangerous - right below my right side panel.
    I hit Dash while not looking dead straight and it recenters Dash AND the windows to match my orientation. This will cause the windows to be moved to an unwanted location.

    Please add a toggle-option to prevent recentering of DASH when opened up.

  16. home apps

    I think it would be kind of cool to work with some major platforms like YouTube, Twitch, Pandora, Spotify to have embedded apps for when I am in the Home. Like you can turn YouTube or Twitch onto a TV on the wall while using the Desktop environment or have an embeded pandora or spotify app that plays music in the background.

  17. Positioned and pinned screens should have three options: User, Room, Wrist.

    This just helps in where the screens are expected to be when we bring up Oculus Dash or when pinned.

    User: Same as it is now. If user turns, the screens will be in same relative position.

    Room: Relative to the Oculus Sensors. If user turns, screens appear in the same "real world" positions. Useful if I want to pin a movie to a position relative to my chair, but allow me to move around.

    Wrist: Relative to the Oculus Controller(s). If user move his controller, the screen is moving with it.

    (fourth option) Relative to virtual room (Home only):…

  18. Option to persistently disable ASW

    Asynchronous Spacewarp seems to be set to "Auto" upon restart. I want to completely disable ASW. Currently, every time I play a Rift game, I open the debug tool and disable ASW manually. I would rather not have to do this on every restart, and instead have it persistently disabled.

  19. Integrate FB messenger with oculus

    A lot of my family and friends use facebook messenger to contact me IRL or call me. It would be nice if I could get like a small message (I'm thinking like a small test window up in the top right or left of the screen) or sound from the dash letting me know when friends or family have messaged me in messenger.
    Also, it would be nice to respond VIA a built-in messenger app in the dash. Like answer calls on messenger or respond to texts VIA built-in app.

  20. Pinned Dash panes inserted into the application's scene space

    It would be very nice and more immersive if Dash could be placed in the scene of the application/game instead of being painted over the scene.

    Use case:
    A pinned webpage showing runes for OrbusVR's Runemage (that aren't recorded in the player's journal) is pinned in Dash so the player can practice tracing the runes with the in-game wand.

    Currently, all in-game objects (hands and wand included) disappear behind the pinned window regardless of its apparent placement. Inserting the pinned window into the actual scene of the game would solve this and prevent pinned windows from constantly breaking immersion.

    I…
