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:

  • Companion App: This category is for feedback relating to the Oculus mobile app, specifically for how the mobile app interacts with the Rift platform.
  • 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.
  • First Party Apps: This category is for in-VR apps created by Oculus, like Medium and Quill.
  • 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. Custom room layout & Scenery tool

    Would be nice to recreate real room layouts.

    Entering;
    - Basic floor layout.
    - Setting wall hight.
    - Adding Windows to walls (hight/width/distance from floor level)
    - Adding Doors to walls (open or closed/hight/width)
    - Adding Openings to walls (square or round/hight/width/distance from floor level)
    - Adding outside environment (360/Panorama or ordinary photos as background outside windows/openings/doors.)

  2. Allow organisation of library through categories.

    Simple really.

    Please let us categorize our games. Example: Favorites, multiplayer, creative, app, vr experience, arcade shooter, simulator.

    My library has become so large & it's not getting any smaller.

    Thanks for submitting this idea! Categories have been introduced to the Library section of the Oculus software in the form of the Filters feature. In Library, click the Filters button in the top right to see a variety of different categories that should help you better navigate your games and apps. We hope you like it! There is a separate idea for marking certain items as ‘favorites’ here: https://rift.uservoice.com/forums/918556-oculus-rift/suggestions/32691043-set-apps-in-library-as-favorites-with-ability-to-s

  3. CAN'T REACH OCULUS RUNTIME SERVICE.

    CAN'T REACH OCULUS RUNTIME SERVICE. FIX THIS PLEASE. I DIDN'T PAY $400 FOR A FKN BOAT ANCHOR.

  4. Let me Place the Home-Hopping Crystal Balls as Objects

    As someone who has really enjoyed setting up multiple homes, I think it would be awesome to be able to move between different homes without opening the Oculus Home Menu. For example, being able to place the "home-hopping" crystal balls as decorations on a desk or table would be great. Alternatively, being able to place wall-mounted portals through which we could teleport between homes might be even better.
    If such an object or portal could be set up between one of my homes and a friend's home, that would be better yet.

    Thanks for voting for this idea! Earlier in the year, we introduced Gateways, which let you link other Homes. These can be your other Homes or even a friend’s Home! You can find Gateways within your inventory while in Home. Enjoy!

  5. Snap Turning

    Teleporting in home is ok since the area is small But it definitely needs Snap Turning to make it feel smother and more comfortable.

    Thanks for this submission. Snap turning in Oculus Home was added as part of a previous software update. You can control options in the Settings menu while in Oculus Home. Thanks!

  6. Patch notes

    In the Library/Updates view there's a place for patch notes with every app update, but the Oculus system updates never have any patch notes. Instead the patch notes are posted on the Oculus forums. It would be nice to see what I just installed without going to the forums.

    Facebook Spaces is another repeat offender. It seems so strange, since having a place to put the notes is your own feature.

    Thanks for submitting this idea. Patch notes have been added to the Oculus system software updates. To see what’s new in the latest Oculus system software update, navigate to Library > Updates and click the ’What’s New’ button under a recent Oculus system update.

  7. Add Mirrors / closet room

    In the old home you could customize your Avatar and be taken to a closet room with a mirror to see yourself.
    Implement that in a style like RecRoom VR.
    Let us place a mirror which opens up a menu when touched to customize the avatar. That would make the room more "alive" so you can choose a new outfit before "heading out" into the World.

    Good news! An avatar editor mirror was added to Home as part of a previous software update. You can find this item in your inventory and place it anywhere in your Home. We hope you like it!

  8. Customizable Home Floor Plan

    Currently everyone's Home is just the same room with different skins and items. Instead, we should be able to completely customize the floor plan, make different rooms/floors, etc.This would allow for much more interesting and personalized setups.

    Good news! The ability to import custom home environments / layouts was added as part of the February 1.35 Rift software update. Just like importing your own custom items, you can place a .glb file in your My Imports\Custom Homes folder and use that object as a template for brand new Homes!

  9. Add a door system and the capacity to create different room of different sizes

    when you teleport to the door that you placed you get teleported to that new room you created.
    i would definitely want to create one room specially for watching movie and in future (when we got better resolution) would make an office space as well.

    Thanks for voting up this idea. This functionality can be achieved using the Gateway from your inventory. Simply create a second home, add a Gateway to each that links to the other, and your spaces will be linked for easily travel between the two! You can also take advantage of the Home templates to have one of the Homes be a dedicated theater. Enjoy!

  10. Ipd status popping up during fast head movement

    When I'm playing superhot or space pirate trainer and do a fast dodge oculus displays my ipd for a split second. I played space pirate trainer a few days before the beta and never saw it happen.

    This issue should no longer be occurring. If you are still experiencing this behavior, please contact Oculus Support. Thanks.

  11. Dont force oculus client to open itself

    No matter what I tried, the new Oculus client would reopen itself every time I closed it. I could see the screen in my rift light up, and hear sounds as I was loaded into home, with my rift sitting on a shelf, nothing triggering the proximity sensor (that im aware of). Eventually I was forced to roll back to stop it.

    Thanks for submitting this feedback through UserVoice. The behavior described in this post should not be occurring. We’ve made a number of software changes and enhancements since this idea was submitted and we believe this issue has been resolved. As a result, we are marking this submission as completed. If you are still experiencing this issue, please open a ticket with Oculus support so we can investigate further. Thanks!

  12. Provide more rooms in home

    Provide different basses for your homes main layout, allow users to add new rooms with different options for size and shape. As well as provide rooms for different functions (ex. Rift Games, movie, store, toy room, ect.)

  13. doors to games

    Instead of just cartridges, also add each game as a DOOR you can pin against a wall. Walking THROUGH the door starts the game.

    This way you can pin a bunch of games/demos you want to show to friends and family and it's very easy for them to wander over and step THROUGH each door into a new world

    Thanks for voting for this idea! As part of the July Rift S and Rift software update, we added the ability to launch into an app from Home by utilizing the Gateway object. Simply find the Gateway object in your Home inventory, place it in your Home, and link it to an app from your library. Enjoy!

  14. Multiplayer: connecting Friend's spaces

    Please allow us to create doors to our friend's spaces - this would be an amazingly immersive way of connecting with others through this wonderful virtual world you're letting us craft.

    I would love to be able to see into the "next" room fairly seamlessly, even if there was a load to actually go there.

    Thanks for submitting this idea! In software update 1.36, we added Gateways, which allow you to create an easy link between your own Home and other Homes. Place anywhere in your Home to expand your space and connect different themed rooms or public Homes. You can find Gateways in the Special Items section of your inventory!

  15. Mobile app should be usable without oculus go.

    Mobile app should be usable without oculus go. Should be able to browse the entire store and pre-purchase stuff for my rift on pc. Kind of a easy / missed opportunity.

    Good news! This has been implemented! You can now use the Oculus companion app to browse apps for Oculus Rift S and Rift. Enjoy!

  16. More Homes/Artifacts!

    In order to accommodate new custom artifacts from Medium, etc, and in anticipation of additional exterior “Surroundings”, we definitely need more Homes than the current 4 and we need to have the object limit raised from 500 to, say, 750. I have easily reached 500 items on 4 homes without displaying any game cartridges/boxes.

    Thanks for submitting this idea! Earlier this year, we upped the amount of Homes one user can create from 4 to 12. Enjoy!

  17. Add a more aggressive guardian option and make it easy to switch between guardian modes

    Sometimes the guardian system's light blue grid is too gentle when I'm quickly moving my arms and body in certain games (like ping pong, sword fighting, etc.). It feels like a suggestion not a warning and it's easy to reach past the bounds. In certain games, it would be very helpful for peace of mind if the guardian turned more forceful when reaching past the bounds for certain games - it could turn the grid red, sound a loud audio alarm, vibrate the out of bounds controller, or begin occluding vision completely. If it feels like a warning I will…

    As part of a recent software update, we added the ability to adjust the sensitivity of Guardian. These options can be found within the settings menu while in VR and will allow you to adjust for your desired experience. Thanks for submitting this idea!

  18. Invite friend to home (so that we can see each other)

    Currently, I can visit a friend's home, but we can't hang out together.

    I wish we could invite someone and then be able to see each other as well. So that we could play around with all the gadgets together or just hang out.

    Thanks for submitting this idea. The ability to visit and hang out with a friend in a Home was added as part of a previous software update. Enjoy!

  19. User-Created Wall Art

    Create blank picture frames of various sizes that the user can import their own photography/art into and be able to decorate their Dash 2.0 home with.
    More simply, allow the users to import their own photography/art into their Dash homes.

    This can be accomplished through a combination of importing UGC objects and utilizing the Oculus created Special Items. Marking as complete.

  20. Add a 'Mirror' in Home

    Would be brilliant to add a 'Mirror' so we can customise avatar in our home, it would add excellent immersion, every home needs a mirror right!

    Thanks for the idea! I can confirm that an Avatar editor mirror object for Oculus Home was added as part of the July 2018 Rift software update. We hope you’re enjoying it!
