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. Function to dim lights, brightness or Night Mode

    There seem to be missing a dim lights or Night mode function on Oculus Rift S. Looks like the Quest have this function, then why does the Rift S not?

    I think it could be more comfortable to have this possibility feature, to not be overexposted to strong constant lighting all the time.

    Just like on phones you can adjust the lighting etc. and for casual games later afternoon / at night, it is not normal to be exposed to strong bright and blue light.

    It seems not to be hard to add this, but please at least put it…

  3. Inside out tracking controllers Gen 2

    We carry phones with cameras in them all the time please just make some controllers that are index-like that just inside out track independent of the headset cameras if you wanna wire them to the headset for power and data transfer to the PC then whatever I can personally thread them through elbow pads etc. I have doubts about Lenovos ability to do this it might be a better idea to partner with Valve hint hint.

  4. adjustable z axis for disabled use in reclined position

    I'm disabled and I've been trying to use the Oculus Rift in my recliner, but that means my body's axis is horizontal to the floor. My chair obstructs my access to some Virtual controls in some games and my head has to tilt uncomfortably in most games.

    I would like to be able to change the horizon axis so it's more aligned with my body. I know there are a lot of conditions that might lead people to be unable to stand or sit up for VR, so this feature could open doors for lots of people to enjoy this…

  6. Rift S Needs To Offer Far More Control Via Advanced Settings.

    Control over the entire Rift S experience is incredibly restrictive and lacklustre. We need way more options! I.E. mapping gamepad buttons,choosing gamepad modes such as: Game mode, Controller/U.I mode, or Dash mode. Let us unpair peripherals in Settings. Turning off head tracking as a mouse pointer when using Virtual Desktop, too! That's what the Touch controllers are for... Advanced settings of all sorts are simply and frustratingly missing!

    Take some pages out of Steam's book. I have to use SteamVR to play pancake games in Virtual Desktop with a gamepad. Oculus automatically forces my Xbox360 based gamepad to behave as…

  7. Add Foveated Rendering

    Could we add the option for foveated rendering with the rift-s? This render mechanism is available with Turing based - gpu's and can greatly improve the frame rate within the vr environment by rendering the edge of the scene at a lower resolution than the centre.

    This is generally unnoticeable in use, and with my setup, on a now defunct Pimax headset, turning on foveated rendering gave me an immediate 10fps frame increase at zero extra cost. That's got to be a winner!

  8. White line on cable

    Have a white line on the black cable on rift and rift s devices so when the card gets tangled around itself, the user can easily straighten out the cable.

  9. If the Rift S was purchased less than half a year ago exchange it for a quest!

  10. Oculus Voice for Rift and Rift S

    I think it is unfair to have a better UI and voice controls for a less powerful headset ONLY. Bring it to Oculus Rift and Rift S please.

  11. Play Area Not Found

    When the headset gets confused and thinks it can't find the guardian boundary, how about a message that says "Play area not found. Please check for changes in your play area or lighting and then click "TRY AGAIN".

    As apposed to the current message which is basically "Play area not found. You are now screwed from this point on until you completely redo the entire setup from scratch. Have fun!"

  12. An option to turn off touch controller vibrations

    I understand the idea of them to add immersion, but I would love to have an option to turn of the vibrations for the controllers. Many times in my opinion they would get in the way of what I'm doing or get distracting while I'm doing something in game. It also uses absurd amounts of battery especially in a game like Beat Saber where literally every time you hit a note, it vibrates not to mention all the other occasions where it would vibrate when the sabers touch anything for that matter. So I would really appreciate an option to…

  13. stop the oculas software starting up on its own when you launch vr games that you dont want to play in vr.

    a way to stop the oculas software from starting up when you launch vr games that can be played without vr. i launch Ark from my epic games launcher and the oculas software starts and i don want it to, if i close it Ark crashes. it seems ridiculous that i cant stop it from starting

  15. Add the RX 5600 XT to the supported hardware list.

    Add the RX 5600 XT to the hardware whitelist. The card does not appear on the current whitelist and is more than capable.

  16. Allow use of Oculus Browser on Rift S

    I would like the ability to use Oculus Browser on Rift S in the same way I do on my Oculus Quest or Oculus Go devices. I recognize a user may easily access the Internet using the attached PC, but the Oculus Browser tool is more private.

  17. Methods of Payment

    I still cannot, through any means of cards, accounts, or paypal, seem to purchase an oculus rift. It's kinda hard to give you positive feedback when I CANNOT PURCHASE YOUR WARES.

    Seems like bad business to me.

  18. Feed back


    1. Get your teams back into the retail space. They are very helpful and would prevent the 1 week of headache i have trying to get this to run on my VR "ready" PC

    2. Get your PC system checker back up and running. Might help a bit, Vive and Steam both have good ones.

    3. Fix the USB3 issues. Holy **** is this a train wreck.

    4. Get more video cards supported. Again, another train wreck. Either i have to down grade my card to meet the spec or spend $600 on a card that still doesn't do what my current card does.

  19. Can you support a public school pilot project for VR Classroom for distance learning? douglasboheman@yahoo.com

    I spoke to a representative from Vancouver School District Superintendent’s office regarding developing a “Traditional School, VR” in Sansar as an answer to a better ‘distance learning’ option to Zoom meetings. I have friends inworld from Sansar Studio and Linden Lab that can help development of the classroom, but no funding for computers and VR headsets. Would Oculus be able to donate some equipment for a pilot protect. My motivation comes from desperatation after being AWOL from my profession as a land surveyor. I have a BS in CE, not a masters in education. I need to be out in…
