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. Don't require Facebook for social features

    Your recent demand that all social users engage through Facebook is a bad decidion. I will not allow my children to be exposed thru Facebook so you can make a few pennies in marketing kickbacks. We will never participate in an Oculus social media again and I will actively campaign online against you from this point on.

  2. Let me play Steam VR Games without the performance hungry device known as Oculus app running in the background.

    Don't know about you... but whenever I play any steam vr game (which I do much more often than oculus), it takes up about 26% of my cpu, and a decent chunk of my memory. All I really want is a way to play GORN without my cpu ******** itself, due to the oculus app. Make it less performance hungry, or just an option to make it gone in general.

  5. Allow users to upload custom avatars

    I would like for Oculus to implement the option to use a completely custom avatar that the user uploads themselves, similar to how uploading a home or prop works.

    There are a few platforms that already allow this: VRChat, High Fidelity, Sansar, Mozilla Hubs, Sinespace, etc. It's also the standard of any 2D social platform(Facebook, Twitter) to let users upload profile pictures, which serve as avatars. It's an essential feature that allows people to express themselves much more than the current avatars allow.

    Personally, the Oculus default avatars don't do it for me, and they probably never will. I don't…

  6. Hand & Face Skin Types (Galaxy Skin!)

    Please bring these skins back for your hands! This is a current photo I took today! (3/30/20) So I know they are in your system. That's my friend's hands. My hands used to be just like this but red. Then I pulled out that stupid Avatar Editor and it forever changed my options to normal human skin types. I want the UNREAL in VR. I dont want normal. Common! Its not hard. I loved looking down and seeing a galaxy in my hands. THAT IS WHAT VR IS ABOUT! Not some pasty skin flesh. Upvote this friends!

  7. Non-Human Avatar Options

    The best part of VR is escaping my boring human existence... so why do I still have to look like a human? I can never even make the human avatar look like ME anyways, and it drives me crazy.

    Robots, Monsters, Animal-People, all would be great to have as avatar options.

  9. Give us an option to go back to home 1.0 (classic)

    Ever since I updated to rift core 2.0 I have had tracking issues and performance issues in games, I propose that we should get the option to get the 'choose what we use' in the options menu, and for people who have just installed oculus, they can see which one looks better for them when setting up rift.

    Would it be possible to create a means to enable keyboard hot key assignment to toggle Passthrough+ in the Rift S in addition to using the button on the controller?

    I use the Rift S in several flight simulators such as P3D and DCS and do not use the hand controllers since I have all high hardware which is much more realistic to fly with compared to hands with controllers unsupported in the air.. It is very difficult and not practical to switch and find the hand controller and then orientate it so I can push the button and so…

  11. Let Friends Help Decorate Your Home

    My brother just bought a rift and we are really enjoying playing together! Here’s the story: he told me he was going to take a break and decorate his home, so I asked him if he could invite me so I could help. I made my home very nice so o wanted to help him choose objects and show him good places to put things...etc. after getting into his home, he couldn’t even move the furniture himself!

    I think there needs to be a “home decor” mode or something where you can give permissions to certain friends to help build…

  12. oculus home broadcast screen interaction

    would be great if you open a screen broadcast and actually be able to click on the screen and do stuff rather than just having it there to look at

  13. Create a way to test external 3D objects BEFORE importing them. Or gine an option to REMOVE definitely unwanted/unworking objects.

    I imported some objects into my home.
    Unfortunately some imported objects didn't work well, so I decided to remove them from the [...]\Oculus Home_Import\ExampleUGC directory, but I still can see them into the home imported objects list.
    The issue is -- not all the external objects seem to work.
    Some of them didn't work at all: in this case, you will see them in the Imported Objects List shown as a Red Sign. Then you can simply delete them from the [...]\Oculus Home_Import\ExampleUGC directory and they are gone. Ok.
    Some other objects have a difefrent behaviour: they ARE listed into…

  14. App in the Home to read text messages from your phone

    A simple In-Game App that is compatible with Android and iPhone that lets you hit the Oculus button while in game and read (and hopefully reply) Text messages without having to remove the headset.

  15. Make "you have received new reward items" popup possible to disable

    Popup now shows up no matter what you are doing. I don't care about the items, I don't need the distraction and it also seems to make other apps/games laggy while it's open.

    A setting to simply disable it would be great.

  16. Text Messages

    Please give us the possibility to send text messages to our friends. Not always they are online or if they are online may be can't receive a call. Having the possibility to send text messages when they are online or offline would be great.

  18. A local home

    It would be possible to have a home that is completely independent of the internet. A home that is private and nothing in it is uploaded to the Internet. For now, each item is uploaded to the internet for the sake of sharing the place with others, but it would be better if it were 100% independent. It is also good to repair because there are no stable surfaces in the present. If you place an object, it may be on the floor, not on it. It is so difficult to arrange the items correctly. It wasn't like that before.…

  19. We really need an option to be able to switch back to the old Oculus Home.

    I love the new Oculus Dash and it's quite amazing and convenient. But at the same time, I really have started to miss the old home we had back in 2017 when I got my Rift CV1. It would be amazing to be able to get the old version in some way for people since it's pretty nostalgic.

  20. Have standard joystick locomotion as an option in settings (with strafing)

    I’d love to see the capability to control using the left stick for movement and the right stick for turning, as opposed to teleport locomotion. I understand that some users may experience motion sickness this way however, so perhaps an option in the settings?

    Hey all – we’re marking this idea as started, as joystick locomotion was implemented in a previous software update. However, from the comments, it is clear that this idea has morphed a bit to include the specific request of strafing being included in the control scheme. I’ve updated the idea title to include the request for strafing controls. Thanks!
