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. 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.

  2. Limit the number of Oculus Rift S one person can purchase to improve distribution until the stock shortages are resolved

    In light of the limited stocks and the current global situation where many people are stuck in quarantine, it would be a big gesture of Oculus to assist in helping to get VR into the hands of as many people as possible. This includes individuals stuck in quarantine, educators, researchers, etc.

    There are major issues of distribution with a significant number of units being snapped up by resellers and scalpers, resulting in many units stuck in the warehouses of these non-users. As of this writing, there are 5169 listings for "Oculus Quest" + Condition = "New" and 2471 listings for…

  4. Early adopters // Your initial supporters shouldn't have discontinued support.

    Having exclusive titles for the Quest 2 is ridiculous, if someone forked up the cost to own a rift S, they shouldn't be having to upgrade their headset every few years for something that would 100% certainly work on the headset they only purchased a short time ago.

  6. Updates for Newer GPU's

    I recently upgraded my GPU from an AMD Radeon RX 580 4GB card to a newer AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT 12GB card. Every time I start my Oculus Rift S, it states that my system hardware requirements are not up to standards and it never previously stated that message. I suggest an update that would include newer GPU's. I upgraded primarily to play Half-Life: Alyx since my old GPU didn't have enough graphics memory in order to play.

  7. Advice: Display port to HDMI Adapter that works with the Rift S

    Hi.
    I want to inform you I have found an HDMI to DP adapter that works with the Rift S.

    When I bought my Rift S, I also bought an adapter because I have an Asus gaming laptop which has only HDMI. I didn't know this should not work, and after I saw at your website that you don't provide an adapter because you haven't found one that works, I was frustrated but decided to give a shot to the one I bought.

    Well, it worked.
    I am using:
    Gold Touch HDMI Male to Display Port Female adapter w/Power
    it…

  8. Allow Rift S to use external cameras from the original Rift

    Everyone who has upgraded to the Rift S from the CV1 has encountered a downgrade in tracking in various games. A great example would be shooter games where you have to aim down sights, which causes you to lose tracking since the controller is too close to the headset. Supporting the external cameras would allow more people to upgrade from the original rift without sacrificing their tracking. Also people with the Rift S would have the option to purchase more cameras to “enhance the experience”. The only issues that can possibly be encountered would be USB bandwidth errors from having…

  9. Turn off controllers

    There NEEDS to be a sleep mode or an option to turn off the controllers. I have just gotten my Oculus Rift S (3 days ago) and the controllers had gone through the included batteries in under 24 hours. I have swapped them out and been taking them out when I'm not using the Rift.

    It seems like a major design flaw to have the controllers constantly running and to turn them off, having to take out the batteries. Not trying to repeat myself but there needs to be a way to turn them off or else you'll be constantly…

  10. Don't force me to install on my tiny C Drive when I have terrabytes of other partitions or disks I could use.

    Pretty self-explanatory. Maybe just a tiny dropdown that lets you select where you want to install the Oculus App instead of forcing me to clean up my C drive

  12. Give us a standing/sitting mode for the Rift S

    I like to sit down at my desk and watch bigscreen which is seperate from my Place Space, but when I do that on some games it positions me as super far from center in Bigscreen occasionally and also it always trips my boundary visuals, so I have had to turn them off, which is a bit dangerous. Please allow us to change to 3DOF mode from the dash quick settings menu :)

  13. Wireless adapter for Rift S

    Would a wireless adapter for Rift S be a possibility?

    I would be willing to even install a PCI e card for 60ghz wifi.

  14. Actually support your products.

    One of my Rift controllers is broken through no fault of my own, the battery compartment just doesn't keep a battery connected well and the controller becomes disconnected easily with any movement. It was purchased as the latest version of hardware three years ago. There's currently no way to even purchase a new controller, let alone get a repair or replacement from "support". Best step they have offered is "adding another spring or placing some folded aluminum foil inside and between the contacts to reduce movement." My recommendation to improve the product is to actually support it.

  15. Option to hide real name

    Real name appears in various menus (most notably on the dash) which is problematic for various reasons, especially for those who wish to stream on public platforms (Twitch, etc.). There's no need to see your own name (you presumably already know it), but with the tightest privacy settings being 'Only You' this doesn't help if you want to broadcast what 'only you' can see.

  18. Please make an option to rollback the oculus software to an older version. Currently stuck on the latest and cant get past setup

    I have had the oculus rift s for almost a year now, it has no issues until the latest update which has now bricked the headset. I can no longer get past the setup as the senor check always goes to "Sensors Can't Track Headset". I tried it on an old pc with old software and worked great, but once I updated the software, it couldn't track anymore. Please make an option for us users to be able to go to an older version of the oculus software, that way when a update comes out that breaks the headset, we…

  19. Remove Mandatory Facebook Link for all Oculus Logins

    Many of us are not interested in using a personal Facebook Social Media account for Oculus for a variety of reasons.
    These include, but are not limited to personal privacy concerns linking my real name, address, photos, and countless other personal information.
    While we understand that Facebook own Oculus, and the data on both accounts, we do not wish these to be linked in any way.

  20. plz make a new rift

    please make a new rift. I'm sorry to reveal the truth but the quest isn't all it. I'm not saying it is trash but its not the best. trust me, if you come up with a new rift and actually design it and update it, you will be bathing in cash, because since you don't update the rift s, you are missing out on a lot of money

    its just sad.
