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. Allow different language to be the official workaround when installation gets stuck.

    I've tried to install the desktop app many times, however I found that downloading in espagnol/spanish in most cases fixes the installations fails.
    Some people it's french and others Dutch.

    The point is, the desktop app installation process is clearly problematic having so many people asking for help and downloading over 4 times the files.

    Out of 7 installation made on both French and English windows 10 64b (clean and "used", it has worked only one time with the french installation on an english one,never with english. The rest ,spanish were the way to go.

    On top of that at…

  3. Fix FOV multiplier in Oculusmirror

    --FovTanAngleMultiplier setting on Oculus Mirror(.exe) makes the graphic in the Mirror screen barreled (like the actual lens view), even if 1.1 multiplier is used while the Dash is showing as it should. Please fix for the streaming purposes! (Version 1.40, I5-8600K, 32 gb, 2080 etc etc.)

  4. Allow an exit game overide

    There is an issue with a few games where the app will infinitely "quit" itself. This means rebooting the game will not work, as the desktop app's software thinks that it is still running. This problem mainly occurs via steam VR usage, but there should be an overide button that can be turned on in the settings, and then when the three dot options button is pushed on the app, the menu would include overide quit, it will warn you before hand and then you click ignore and it will tell the app to stop thinking it is quitting the…

  5. Help with unblocking your PIN

    When you type your PIN in to fast to many times it blocks you. Instead of saying go visit the help center for support and not having jacksh*t on there. Maybe actually giving the person help or a number to call instead of them having to wait A WHOLE DAY to receive an email back. How bout that.

  6. Click on An App's Version Number to see the most recent Patch Notes

    Some other people here have had similar ideas, but on the store page there is a clearly visible Version Number, but no way to access the Patch Notes from the store pages, unlike other app stores like iOS or Android. A simple solution would be to have a link to the Patch Notes attached to the Version Number on each App page, so when a user wants to see the Notes they just have to click on the Version number.

  7. Invasive Occulus Update: refocuses current window.

    Stop automatic refocus of oculus software on update check.

    this has happened a lot lately and im just before the point of uninstalling the oculus software completely.

    While playing other games such MC that are in no way related to oculus The oculus software will periodically check for updates this check is bringing me out of my other games that I am current playing and makes itself the main focused window. this is extremely aggerating and a little invasive and really starting to cause problems.

  8. Stop requiring a NTSF formatted harddrives and make it easier to install to a different drive

    I'm not sure why there is a requirement that your HD be formatted into NTSF to install the Oculus software. The format of the drive should have NOTHING to do with system and I'm sure since most people buying the Rift are developers of some kind (such as myself), they have a similar setup of a OS drive and a content drive formatted in ANYTHING else but NTFS as it's not a good file system. Why was this ever made a requirement?

  9. Add the RTX 2080 to compatible graphics cards

    Please add the RTX 2080 to compatible graphics cards so that the software stops saying the my system doesn't meet the requirements.

  10. Oculus Medium

    The whole power of Oculus Medium, in order to teach others or beginners,
    was the ability to follow along with tutorials IN the medium program, It
    is too hard to teach a new person by watching a video outside the medium
    program, then have to jump in medium and remember the whole
    demonstration. In the program you could pause as you went through all
    the tools. Bring this feature back PLEASE.

  11. Allowing users to choose where to install the Oculus app

    I found it a bit difficult to install the Oculus app on my computer but it defaulted to the C: drive, which is almost full. Allow users to see what hard drives are available. We should be able to browse for where we want to install the app.

  12. Combine the UI concept from HelloV.io (tiny discreet dot with focal point interactivity) to Oculus Desktop App.

    Summary: Combine the UI concept from HelloV.io (tiny discreet dot with focal point interactivity) to Oculus Desktop App.

    I've found the biggest hurdle for streaming VR content on Twitch (or Mixer) is the ability to read chat in a way that doesn't interfere with the game experience.

    The problem with OVRdrop for me: Hard to read the chat, hard to orient the chat box, incredibly annoying user interface. Setting it up so that chat is viewable when I flip my wrist is popular, but I've found a few games that utilize this action in their ui.

    HelloV.io is promising. I…

  13. Add more email domains to registration process

    I had to change which email address I used to create an Oculus account because the confirmation emails weren't being sent to my sbcglobal.net email address. Once I tried a Gmail account I received the email instantly.

  14. File validator like Steam

    We need a file validator like steam so if a game goes bad we don't need to re-download the entire game again

  15. Avoid desktop burn-in on main PC/TV monitors while using headset

    Been using a TV as a computer monitor for two decades now. Entered VR using a PSVR and all games are full screen since it is a console based VR system.

    Switched to Oculus some years ago and because not all games offer a full screen option for my main TV monitor while using the headset... over time the desktop icons and other desktop artifacts are now burning into my 4K TV since the Oculus software actively prevents any screensaver, to turn it off while using the headset, or means to keep my main monitor from avoiding burn-in.

    Upon reaching…

  16. Fix please

    Currently there is a tracking issue if you move your controller too fast.
    Oculus players no have a big disadvantage playing games like Beat Saber.
    It's very important to me and many many more people that this gets fixed as quick as possible.

  17. Library filters - add filter to show only uninstalled apps

    Really would like to sort it so it only shows uninstalled apps. As of know it can only show uninstalled together with installed apps.

  18. Allow for a second set of Touch controllers.

    Update to allow for 4 tracked controllers. I really feel like this would be a big deal.

  19. Ability to preload the games for free weekends

    For people with slow internet connections some of the larger free weekend games can take a significant portion of the period to download. It would be great to have a way to preload the games so more of the free period can be used. Since the games already have a system to revoke access while still being installed post-free period, hopefully doing the same at the other end shouldn't be crazy hard.

  20. Give us a button to toggle audio mirroring so we can easily have others hear us

    Currently you need to navigate through settings to make this happen which makes it a hassle. A button by the already-existing audio sliders would do just fine. Give a dropdown menu if you must.
