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. 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.

  2. Please allow brightness adjust

    I have oculus rift (cv1) and I'm getting headache because of too high brightness.
    I used to adjust it from nvidia control panel but with updates you remove this possibility.

    Please find a way to allow user to adjust brightness again!

  3. 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!

  4. new better headset

    I think that more seasoned VR players with better setups would appreciate a headset that is basically a rift s with the quest style of the head strap, a mechanical ipd, 90hz display, and outside-in tracking for the superior comfort while gaming and the best possible tracking experience. I think that people would even pay a premium for this better experience. It would also be cool to have hand tracking but that would probably have to be a future you pay extra for.

  6. Sell Rift CV1 ribbon cables for repair.

    So, the Rift CV1 has major faults following the ribbon cable that provides audio to the right earpiece, and back IR LEDs.

    Considering that this part is so small, and ribbon cables tend to be widely available for other hardware that use them, such as Sony products (Products known for being a pain to repair (And you can actually still buy ribbon cables from them either way,)) I think that Oculus should sell ribbon cables online.

    I'd immediately buy at least 4 units of that part.

    I am not changing my Rift CV1 for a Rift S, and I don't…

  7. 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!

  8. Please add option to turn off haptics

    Please add option to disable the haptics.. there are oculus only games that cannot be played because the option to turn off haptics is not there. On all steam games once the haptics are turned off the games run smooth with no issues.. so we need this option in order to further purchase oculus games.

  9. Please give the Rift S some love!

    Hi Oculus,
    I have been fighting issues with my Rift S for a while now and am waiting for my RMA to return in the mail. I have had problems that include robot mic, speakers popping, random loss of tracking, and, most annoyingly, constant headset crashing remedied only be restarting my PC.

    Just so that you know: All of these issues spawned from and Oculus Software update that mainly had changes only for Oculus Quest Link. Please pass this on to your developers and let them know that they need to get these issues resolved, even if it is just…

  10. Option to disable/limit CPU hungry Dash features for users with low spec machines

    A number of users with under performing computers are having issues with Dash 2.0 taking away performance from VR games.

    If the CPU/GPU hungry features had an option to disable or limit Dash 2.0 impact it might help.

  11. Function to dim lights, brightness or Night Mode

    There seem to be missing a dim lights or Night mode function on Oculus Rift S. Looks like the Quest have this function, then why does the Rift S not?

    I think it could be more comfortable to have this possibility feature, to not be overexposted to strong constant lighting all the time.

    Just like on phones you can adjust the lighting etc. and for casual games later afternoon / at night, it is not normal to be exposed to strong bright and blue light.

    It seems not to be hard to add this, but please at least put it…

  13. Inside out tracking controllers Gen 2

    We carry phones with cameras in them all the time please just make some controllers that are index-like that just inside out track independent of the headset cameras if you wanna wire them to the headset for power and data transfer to the PC then whatever I can personally thread them through elbow pads etc. I have doubts about Lenovos ability to do this it might be a better idea to partner with Valve hint hint.

  15. 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…

  16. Controller battery warning options

    There needs to be a way to turn off the battery warning for touch controller's. Also, the option to turn off force to desktop if a battery dies?

    There only needs one warning (if any), that the battery is low, also it should be far lower than (around), 20%. The constant warnings in game are incredibly annoying and way too soon

    There is no option and it needs to be included in the next update as it is ruining my experiences and causing me stress


    • Option to manually adjust battery warnings

    • Option to manually adjust behavior when battery dies

  17. 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.

  18. Rift S Needs To Offer Far More Control Via Advanced Settings.

    Control over the entire Rift S experience is incredibly restrictive and lacklustre. We need way more options! I.E. mapping gamepad buttons,choosing gamepad modes such as: Game mode, Controller/U.I mode, or Dash mode. Let us unpair peripherals in Settings. Turning off head tracking as a mouse pointer when using Virtual Desktop, too! That's what the Touch controllers are for... Advanced settings of all sorts are simply and frustratingly missing!

    Take some pages out of Steam's book. I have to use SteamVR to play pancake games in Virtual Desktop with a gamepad. Oculus automatically forces my Xbox360 based gamepad to behave as…

  19. 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!

  20. White line on cable

    Have a white line on the black cable on rift and rift s devices so when the card gets tangled around itself, the user can easily straighten out the cable.
