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. Let pass through camera on Rift S to see my physical keyboard.

    I can't do any of the keyboard shortcuts for photoshop, and won't be able to fully have any productivity on virtual desktop. The only thing I"m missing is the keyboard. HTC vive has a program called "FragmentVR" that allows a window. Even better would be to identify the keyboard, and show a photogrammetry version of the keyboard with clearer keys, and shadow of the hand overlapping it.

  2. If the Rift S was purchased less than half a year ago exchange it for a quest!

    You are not supporting Rift S your whole keynote was about quest....I bought my rift S 7 days ago.... this is really sad.

  3. Add product restock status on website

    Would be nice to have some kind of information about restock status on the website instead of just unavailable in your country.
    If it is going to be restocked than some kind of info text like "Expected back in stock DATE" if you have some kind of idea of where or "Restock date unknown" When you have no idea when but you know you will restock.

  4. Backup of the saved progress for any game, in the could or not

    Every now and then, for many reasons, most people needs to reinstall Windows. And every time there precious things done in the Oculus titles are lost forever. Please, add a simple system to backup and restore not only the games but also the progress made in any title played. Another plus, a good feature, could be to choose between a backup in the cloud or in the personal hard disk. Thank you!

  5. filter for

    Option to Block Violent Content/ Ads:

    This would be a swell idea for children under the age of 13, people with PTSD or people with mental disorders (suicidal).

    There should be some sort of content filter. I'm actually shocked in this day and age something like this isn't legally mandated...

  6. Allow use of Oculus Browser on Rift S

    I would like the ability to use Oculus Browser on Rift S in the same way I do on my Oculus Quest or Oculus Go devices. I recognize a user may easily access the Internet using the attached PC, but the Oculus Browser tool is more private.

  7. 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!

  8. 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. Dark Screen

    I have already used on my MSI PC exactly the same helmet (same characteristics) in September 2019 at the Planeur training center in Puivert (Aude)

    Monday March 2, 2020, I decided to plug in my new helmet, bought a few days ago.
    The oculus program asked me for an update which I did immediately.
    While everything throughout the configuration seems OK, the screen of the helmet turns on, but turns off definitively after about a minute.

    I reinstalled the OCULUS software, changed USB, etc. nothing helps.
    The headphones only turn on for a short time, once the USB is disconnected…

  10. Oculus Go and Quest Games and Apps on Oculus Rift S

    The quest is getting Rift and SteamVR games and allready have Oculus Go games, but what about the rift? I think it makes sense that Oculus makes it possible to play Go and Quest games on the rift, especially now that they have made this possible on the Quest.
    Thats what i wanted to say, hope you understand why i want this.

  11. Fix issues related to running Oculus Home behind a proxy and/or make the runtime work in offline mode.

    This feedback ticket is targeted for the use case of using the Oculus Rift in a business environment, but the requested feature can also benefit consumers.

    Business customers can’t install the software in common network environments. Most businesses use a proxy to communicate with the internet. The Oculus installer does not respect the proxy settings of the system, causing an "e.ishttperrorcode is not a function" error when trying to create a user account or logging in with an existing one. This is not the only bug when trying to install the Oculus software from within a restricted network environment, but…

  12. Create a Blender 3D plug-in to export to the proper format for the Oculus Home. It is currently a difficult process.

  13. Add Foveated Rendering

    Could we add the option for foveated rendering with the rift-s? This render mechanism is available with Turing based - gpu's and can greatly improve the frame rate within the vr environment by rendering the edge of the scene at a lower resolution than the centre.

    This is generally unnoticeable in use, and with my setup, on a now defunct Pimax headset, turning on foveated rendering gave me an immediate 10fps frame increase at zero extra cost. That's got to be a winner!

  14. Enable BRL currency in experiences store for Brazil owners

    I'm from Brazil, and pay the experiences in dollar is very expensive to us. We don't earn as much as an north american and we need to pay tax because of the international transaction.

    Do as Steam/Uplay/Epic Store/Origin/GOG... , do specific prices for Brazil, not only convert the dollar to BRL, but make the prices lower to make possible to us buy more games and experiences.

    Facebook already have payments in BRL, please, make Oculus Store accept it too.

    Thanks, Diego.

  16. Improved Controllers with integrated cameras for better tracking

    I really like the inside out tracking of the Rift S. But every time the controllers are not in front of the headset, for example behind your back, they are not tracked. This is a serious problem for some games. So if it is technical possible, my idea is to integrate one ore two cameras into each controller. With this the tracking would be greatly improved without external sensors.

  17. Full finger tracking?

    After the release of the valve index, and more importantly the knuckles controllers, what are your plans to meet this new bar?

    I don't have anything in mind, just I would like something similar to the knuckles just not as large and cumbersome. More oculus. I think this would greatly increase support for your headsets as well as the already successful oculus quest as if you were to design the controller's, I would be compatible with the quest and rift s.

    Actually, I have one idea... a tracking ring around the wrist, visible at almost all angles!

    A complicated idea…

  18. Multiple users/accounts for family members.. Family sharing.. If Apple can do it, so can you!

    I can't believe it's 2020 and I (as a parent) can't download a game from Oculus and have separate game data/user accounts for my kids.. Completely unsat, and I'd likely not have purchased this headset if I knew about this glaring problem for families. If Apple (The mothership of software control) can figure out family sharing, so can you Oculus!

  19. Vibration

    I’ve had constant problems with the vibration since I got the oculus rift S. When I play a game and the controllers vibrate the hands in the game freak out and go all over the place. If you could add a many to turn off vibration it would take my experience to a whole other lever!

  20. Allow preordered games to be downloaded ahead of the release date

    Simple concept, this is something that the PlayStation Store already offers. Basically, there’s a 48 hour window prior to a games release where, if you’ve preordered the game, you’ll be able to download it ahead of time, to let you play the game as soon as it’s available.
