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!

  3. The Oculus Neighborhood

    While my friend and I were messing around in Oculus Home, he had the idea that it would be cool to have an “oculus neighborhood”, where you can step outside onto a street or something and see your friends’ (and other public) homes.
    Even if it would require downloading an external oculus app for this to be an attachment to Oculus home, that would be a fun and exciting feature that would make Oculus feel even more connected than it currently is

  4. Options, options, options!

    We should have native option to disable/enable Oculus Desktop app from loading when using i.e. SteamVR. Also we should have option to disable Home 2 environment from loading while the Dash also should have option to be on in that empty environment and in games if needed.

  6. Add Rec-room strafing style free locomotion to Home

    I know lots of people have asked for strafing in the locomotion options, and honestly it's appalling to me that this feature (such a simple feature, if you ask me) hasn't been added yet, so I'm here to give some advice for the Home devs on what game specifically to look at for a solid example of what to do. Rec room. Now I know, Home is UE4 and Rec Room is Unity, but I myself took Rec Room's snap turning, strafe-enabled locomotion style and ported it over to a Robo Recall mod which lets you run around the city…

  7. Search Bar in Home Menus

    I frequently have items I reuse when making new Home environments, but the long lists due to excessive amounts of items in the menus (along with no scroll bars) mean that I have to wait for the slow scroll of the joystick being down to happenstance over the item I need. since the Oculus keyboard works so well now, I'd love to see more search bars integrated in more places in Oculus Home, but especially in the in-VR Home menus for items.

  8. Please add the option to play SEATED!!!!

    I really cannot play Rift S standing for more than 10-20 minutes (I have an health problem to my right leg) and I can play only few games while having the feeling to be standing. If I seat, many games show myself in the VR tall like a midget because I am seated to my chair. The problem is the guardian set up, I have to touch the ground with my controller. Why there is no option to set um my height manually? I don't like to be tall as my table in my Oculus home. The only game I…

  9. A button to retrive lost limited items for oculas home.

    Sometimes you have weird glitches, or not so nice friends, or even relatives that don't care about your rare one of a kind items, ( like the blaster gun or the commoner's bow), witch you only have 1 of, or even a glitch or a jerk or even someone that doesn't know what they are doing and your object goes flying out of the aria, (or in my case, shooting itself thru the floor out of the world). You cannot get your lost item back, its gone forever =(... I subject a recall button in your items list menu that…

  10. Allow Social Interaction with All Oculus Users Including Oculus Go

    I purchased an Oculus Go for my brother in law and my wife and I both have the Go. However, I upgraded to both a Quest and Rift S. The Rift S has a much more elaborate Home setting. I would like the ability to invite both my brother and law and wife to interact with my Rift S Home.

  13. Change loot boxes to stop giving duplicate items.

    Please make a change to the loot box system so that we stop getting 10+ copies of the same thing (I've gotten 11 Rug Bohos in maybe 30 boxes). I'd personally like to see something akin to Overwatchs' loot system where if you already have an item, you get an amount of currency based on it's rarity. Then things that have been out of rotation for a while are added to a store for people to purchase.

  14. Create the oasis

    If you used the same design for Oculus home and expanded it so that each game was its own planet then that would be awesome, especially if you created different circles and specialised planets, the circles you could use just like you get a gun and if it was a handheld toy but when you throw it on the ground it grows into a real space ship or car. This could mean that the oculus home could be a whole universe which would make more people want to buy Oculus rift.

  15. Facing direction guardian setup is now gone (last update)

    Before the last update, the Guardian set up let you set the facing direction for your start position. Since last update it has disappeared. It is crucial for aligning virtual worlds with real ones, and you can no longer do it.
    Why take a functionality that was already there?
    Give it back, please!

  16. Resize any object

    There are many objects that I would love in a bigger or a smaller size. This is not possible natively in Home, which is a shame.
    Resizing an object is a basic thing in programming, it shouldn't be hard to do!
    I suggest you do it like Oculus Medium : when holding an object, pressing the grip of the second controller and spreading the arms (or, on the contrary, bringing them closer) change the size of the object.
    This control is basic, natural, and implemented in many other apps.

    Thank you!

  17. SCROLL BARS on everything in Home

    Plain and simple. It takes way too long to scroll down the pages of the Home menus in VR with the joystick. All I want is a small, preferably greyish bar to the right side of Oculus windows in VR that I can grab with my laser pointer and scroll down the list of items I have or options I'm viewing. Would make my home experience ten times better.

  18. Make the "Set Entry Point" for Homes' button work every time, please

    So I don't know about you guys, but I have great internet, yet for some reason the slow-as-all-garbage Home application just sometimes does not respond to my button presses. For instance, when I try to re-set my entry point for a Home room, pressing the button to set it and then reloading seems to do nothing half of the time. I spent a good ten-twenty minutes clicking the button and then waiting for it to save and then reloading my Home environment to no avail, it would just put me back in the same spot every time, without changing the…

  19. Add Library Item filter By game (not AZ for achievement titles)

    We've all had that issue: We get a new achievement in an Oculus game, only to find that it's halfway down the achievement list in Home, with no scroll bar, forcing us to hold the joystick down for far too long to add it to our walls.
    A simple solution to this would be to add a filter to the list of filters for the library categories that sorts items by game. This would group all of the achievements for one game together, so they're all easy to find.

  20. Separate rooms for separate profiles

    It would be nice if sharing the Rift with the family meant they had their own Avatar in Home, and if not their own house, then maybe their own rooms. By that I mean that if you go into that room, you can launch Rift games from there and you'll have your own settings and save games. Would make sharing the Rift with guests a lot better too... Just go to the guest room.
