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. Show hidden icons (idea or its a bug)

    Spending quite a bit of time using the desktop view within Dash and one action I can not figure out, on the Windows 10 taskbar as with previous version there is an ^ bottom right that brings up hidden programs running steam, voice attack and other things, I have yet to figure a way to access that in the desktop mode, I can hover over it, use the same trigger I would use to select and run things but it will not raise and show what is hidden. Out of that desktop it is a simple left click (show hidden…

  3. Now Playing icon in Dash tricky to use

    If you have something other than the currently playing app visible in the "center" screen, I would expect pressing the button for the current app to show me the window with Recenter/Quit. Instead, it quits Dash and I have to open it again.

    I would think quitting Dash would be unnecessary because it's easy to just use the Oculus button.

  7. Add quick Text / Macros

    It would be awesome to have some "quick access" buttons that you can define on your Dash.
    For example - Add a second slide-out row below the DASH menu.

    Click on a window that is popped out and click on an action that you defined.

    Example:
    Telegram / Skype / Whatsapp etc.
    - Add quick action to send message in current window:
    - "I'm in VR right now - calling you back in a few."
    - "Hey, I'm in Teamspeak / Discord if you want to talk - Enjoying VR right now!"

    To keep it simple:
    One row of items…

  8. FYI Only - Google Maps Very Unstable In Dash

    Google Maps is flaky at best in Dash. Sometimes commands work, most times they don't and with no particular pattern. Also, the zoom control with the joy stick only gets smooth in Chrome if hardware acceleration is activated in settings. This is not good because HA screws up YouTube sound synchronization (a known problem). Also the street view icon it totally erratic both on and off as is picture activation. Also highlighting text for copy and paste is totally erratic.

  9. Resizing und placement of store windows

    Until we can walk around in the store please make it possible to position and resize the store windows like the windows in Dash to make them easier to read and use.

  11. Fix the reflection map on the achievment panels.

    It has a weird high contrast line in there which is *really* obvious, and it waves around distractingly/unrealistically, relative to your head movement.

  12. Change window resolution when resizing

    Since most of the desktop function from inside dash will be used to browser the web, it would be amazing if windows can change resolution when being resolution. As most of the web is responsive these days, the web would automatically adapt to lower resolution and display mobile-like version, therefore making even small and distant windows possible in VR.

  13. Collectibles/Loot Box

    I dislike the idea of "loot crates" even if they are unpaid. It seems silly to force us to wait to create our ideal environment. It isn't rewarding in the slightest.

    I'd say the only acceptable scenario for collectibles is through unlocking them with in-game achievements that would look way fancier than the paper trophies we currently have.

    Another case would be receiving game objects/models for use in home upon purchase of said game.

    ie: superhot character model for getting 'red' on all the real-time trials

  15. Make New Friends

    The Make New Friends option in the Home desktop app should be easily accessable with dash while in a game.

  16. When holding an object allow deletion by throwing the object

    When picking up and editing objects, allow deletion of objects by throwing throw them. The way the objects stop in space after letting go is jarring.

  17. I was a bit confused with how to switch between desktop and library

    As I was in the store app on Dash, I had the desktop app open as well. When I tried to change to my library, it said please wait as it was trying to close the store app. This looped until I just turned off my rift. I also don't think its a good idea to be able to move the desktop screen closer and further away because new users can accidentally do that and not understand what is going on.

  18. Hot key list attached to keyboard

    Adding a costumizable hot key list for each program that uses the keyboard. This makes using applications that use hot keys heavily, possible to use in VR.

  20. personalised ui navigation

    I use alot of programs such as 3ds max/photoshop/solidworks and it would be nice to add those shortcuts to the main ui. Also it would be a nice idea to have the ui to slight hover towards your hand once you scroll your hand over so you can get a better feeling to what you want to select.
