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. Option to change brightness/contrast/saturation of the Oculus Rift S

    Some games on the Rift S are too bright and it would be great to be able to lower the brightness of the Rift S to increase comfortable playtime.

  3. Accidently Leak the engineering of the Original Oculus Rift and Rift S Cable so that third party manufactures can make replacement cables.

    Accidently Leak the engineering of the Original Oculus Rift and Rift S Cable so that third party manufactures can make replacement cables.

  5. I would like to upgrade Rift to Quest 2 and would like to have an exchange program so that the cost of the new device becomes reasonable

    I would like you to provide exchange program so that we will be able to upgrade to newer devices as they are developed

  6. Add compatibility of quest/quest 2 or rift S controllers to cv1 HMD

    Allow CV1 customers to use Quest or Quest2 or rift S controllers. Helping the flexibility of owning the oculus rift and accessories.

  7. Please do not force people to use facebook log in

    I am not a facebook user. I have been required to create a facebook account to continue using my Rift S. This has resulted in me losing all the programmes that I had previously purchased.

  9. 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…

  10. They only accept for the quest!

    You think you have the power to ask but it's a lie! They don't care about us.

    They only accept the quest. we on Rift S are forgotten they do nothing and accept nothing! They don't do anything on the Rift S they don't even listen to their users

  11. Improve Rift S

    You must improve the Rift S.

    Performance and graphics and especially settings. You only do the quest and you neglected and forgot the Rift S .. you only improved the quest !

    We have too few settings! other brands, they are much more advanced .. we our poor Rift S is a little gadget ...

  12. MacBook Pro 16 > Radeon Pro 5600 > Rift S Compatibilty

    Would be great to add compatibility for this graphic card either through bootcamp or natively on Mac. Understand there is an issue with the AMD drivers missing Direct to Display currently but seems like a small hurdle

  13. Complete windows 10 update - Frecso logic usb driver issues resolved

    The newest version of Windows 10 is required. Software updates and driver updates although may be up to date, may only be suited for a previous version of Windows 10. Use the link to completely update windows 10 to its latest version by Microsoft. Be advised, this may take time. My PC took about 2 hours. ENSURE TO KEEP FILES AND APPS OTHERWISE IT WILL RESET YOUR PC TO FACTORY SETTINGS.

    This method is different from resetting your pc in pc settings. that will only reinstall your current version of windows.
    This method is best suited for older custom built…

  14. "Battery Very Low" should NOT be a "Critical Error"!

    Seriously, even the Nintendo Wii got this right and it's AGES old by this point. Heck, every single programmer at Oculus is going to be well aware of the difference between an "Error" and a "Warning", and yes, letting the player know their touch controller batteries are running low is important, but until those batteries actually run dry, it should only ever be a WARNING. Interrupting gameplay with a "Critical Error" when nothing has actually gone wrong just to tell the player they need to replace their batteries "soon" is aggravating and stupid and I've ended up screwed over by…

  15. Add option to turn off radio signals in the headset when controllers are not being used

    As there are people including myself rightfully concerned about RF radiation from headsets, (which is rather high as confirmed with an RF meter), a software feature to turn off radio signals when the controllers are not being used e.g. when watching a movie, would be very useful for the Rift - like you can turn off wifi in a router or bluetooth in a laptop when not needed. That should also put the controllers to sleep to save battery life as others already requested.

  17. Create a version of Rift S with hardware IPD slider, for those with IPD issues.

    The rift S is clearly a product many are interested in, but for some of us the IPD limit is an issue.
    I am sure many of us with ipd issues would love a version of the rift s, that might be more expensive but would have IPD slider.
    Then the normal Rift S could be left as it is, and the more expensive with ipd slider for those that cannot use the normal rift s.

  18. Allow a deal for those who own a Rift with a faulty cable, since it is nearly impossible to buy a new one.

    The following is an email I sent to oculus support, not knowing that this site even existed.


    Jun 14, 2020, 9:03:16 PM PDT

    So I'm sure you already know what the issue is. I have sent in an email before about it, but today I propose a different idea.
    Yes. I know I am some random person on the internet and obviously know a lot less about business than probably everyone who works at oculus, but there is one thing I understand that you probably do as well. Public relations and ethics.

    Before I continue, I am going to recap…

  19. purchased beatsaber for rift s, then found out within less than a month rift s is EOL. Purchase quest2 , but cannot use beatsaber on it.

    I purchase rifts, then purchased beatsaber software, then found out within days that rift s was End of Life.

    So I purchased quest2 headset. But found I can use the beatsaber software on it.

    I’ve sold the rift s and wish to transfer the purchase of the beatsaber software to the quest2 version.

    You should really look at your policies on end of lifing hardware especially seeing I only just purchased Rift S and Beat Saber within the last couple of months and now advised they are end of life and have to purchase new hardware and new software, bad…

  20. Focus more on the Rift platform

    I purchased my Rift S a few weeks ago and I love it. I took me a long time to decide which of the 2 headsets to get (Rift S or Quest). I ended up on the Rift S because it was supposed to be the best headset for PC gaming and that was what I was going to use it for.

    Ever since I bought it I've noticed that the Quest is the only headset that is getting good updates. In not too long, the Quest will have hand tracking. Not that this is essential, but it would be…
