Oculus Rift S and Rift

Thanks for helping us improve Oculus Rift! We're now taking all suggestions on our Oculus Community Forums. All suggestions, votes, and comments from here have been migrated, along with matching accounts. We appreciate you taking the time to share, and are looking forward to seeing you on our broader community.

As a reminder, topics are labeled in the following areas:
  • Companion App: This category is for feedback relating to the Oculus mobile app, specifically for how the mobile app interacts with the Oculus Go platform.
  • Core Software: All Oculus Go main menu, navigation, and settings feedback should be left under this category.
  • First Party Apps: This category is for in-VR apps created by Oculus, like Venues and Rooms.
  • General: Use this category for any feedback that doesn’t fit neatly into one of the other more specific categories.
  • Store: The place where all VR app purchasing takes place.


  1. Allow original RIFT trade in for QUEST 2

    Since my original RIFT has a broken connection cable and you can no longer get cables from oculus or 3rd party, Oculus should allow us to trade in our RIFT's for credit towards a QUEST 2.

  2. charmedsss@abv.bg

    Eliminate the need for a FaceBook profile and revert to the old version. Add the ability to revert to an older version of the software. For my helmet (Oculus Rift) and not only the latest updates made it unusable and this time, unlike before, there is not even any compensation for it.

    PS:
    After the last at least 2 updates the home is unusable, frequent black screens, continuous reboots. Using the helmet in the home of Steam is completely hassle-free.

  5. Rift users should be able to invite people that aren't on their friends list.

    This would be a cool addition as rift players are only allowed to invite people on their friend's list and could improve cross-compatibility between quest and rift. This could also help people who don't have a Facebook account connected.

  7. Please add support for the new Radeon 6000 series - Persistent banner and not able to use the headset

    Currently if you have a 6700 XT or 6900 XT, your Oculus software will tell you that your system does not meet the minimum requirements; which is obviously not possible.

    There is a persistent banner when you use the headset, and most of the time the headset does not even work properly, making it completely unusable.

  8. Disable Guardian and camera tracking (identical to Quest 2 function)

    We desperately need a "Guardian" off toggle to permanently disable 6DOF and use gyro only 3DOF, identical to the function already available in the Quest 2.
    We are using many Rift-S sets in a Mars Rover experience, but the experience is ruined as the dark environent triggers an error message.
    The users are sitting in a chair using a joystick, and for most use-cases like this (stationary) the camera tracking function with 6DOF is not needed at all.

  9. Application specific performance options

    The performance requirements vary wildly from game to game. It would be great if we could have application specific settings for resolution, refresh rate, reprojection preferences, FOV, etc like SteamVR does instead of a single global setting.

    This allows you to take better advantage of your hardware because you aren't picking settings based on your most demanding title. Or worse forced to change settings every time you switch games with different performance requirements.

  10. Fix Rift S Microphone intermittent quality dropping (Robot / Metallic voice)

    I'd like to request you guys to fix the intermittent microphone quality dropping that a lot of users are facing on the Rift S. Here's a link to show you how the issue shows up:

    https://clips.twitch.tv/IgnorantAntediluvianAlfalfaPanicBasket

    As you can listen the quality drop occurs just for a few seconds, but it's random and intermittent getting people annoyed in social games like Pavlov VR, VRChat and RecRoom. Hope you guys can fix it somehow. I have opened a support ticket already but they couldn't help me to fix the problem. Thanks.

  11. Support Linux and macOS

    Since many Macs (with eGpus) are now powerful enough to support VR add full support for macOS. And please support Linux, there is no reason not to support it. I dont want to start Windows every time I play VR games.

  12. Facebook account requirement - Selling my Oculus the second I can find an Index available.

    Your lost, guys, requiring a FB account to operate my Rift is the tipping point. Not in a million years I'll sign for a FB account.

  16. end of life

    Hello,

    I'm really shocked to see that the Oculus Rift (non S) that I purchased £399 on Oculus' official online store back in July 2017 (order number 61300514128687) can't be fixed - the batteries have worked themselves loose, triggering disconnexions, and on top of that the left headset is no longer working.

    Talking to Oculus' support team, there are no spare parts nor any ways of fixing it with Oculus, even at an additional cost - the product has been discountinued and is no longer supported. I can say goodbye to my £399. Or try to fix it myself, if…

  18. USB 3.0 and issue with black screens when looking around in games off of your peripheral vision

    So I have noticed on several devices running on the x570 board where it doesn't register usb3 even if you're connected to it as well as game tearing away from the screen and seeing black screens as we look around I found and tested on several devices that if you go into the bios of your computer and change the pcie configuration into gen 3 instead of Gen 4 or Auto having it set to force gen3 fixes the issue

  19. A Polite and Honest request to REMOVE Bloat from the Install process

    I have watched Home become larger and larger over time to the point that it is now ~7.5GB DOWNLOAD.
    This is completely unacceptable.

    It's pretty clear that the vast majority of this is Home and the Touch Tutorial, both now officially considered Unnecessary (You have an option to disable Home in the Oculus App)

    Please have a look at the Attached Image and see just how much of the overall package is what I would consider "Bloatware".

    As you can see, the Touch Tutorial takes a massive 1.59GB,
    while Home (the Oculus Worlds folder) takes a wopping * 10GB!…
