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. WEBcamera live feed of a cropped image of your choice in to VR environment.

    A live feed from a local WEBcamera or video source would be useful to add to your virtual world and environment!

    Maybe as a cropped (dimmed) image/resolution of your choice.


    • Putting the video feed on a virtual monitor, flat screen etc.

    • Display an image of your physical keyboard/desktop(Mouse/Keyboard)

    My challenge using the desktop app is to locate the keyboard!
    (Removing your HMD and then put it on again, finding correct keys.)

    Would be nice if you could use a WEBcam on top of your monitor facing the keyboard rotate the image and then mix in the live cropped image of…

  2. Display individual windows.

    The whole screen display is similar to Bigscreen VR which honestly does it better right now. A more useful display method would be to be able to open program windows independently from the desktop and place them in the surrounding space at will. Like the now defunct "Envelop VR". Or like the way "Fly Inside" for Microsoft Flight Sim allows the user to pass individual windows through into the play space.

    Also, with multiple screen setups, allow sizing both screens simultaneously. Also, once open I couldn't figure out how to close the desktop view again.

  4. If we accidentally remove a SteamVR game from the library, let us add it back.

    Currently, if we remove a game from the library (non-Oculus), we can't reverse this. Please let us clear the blacklist and try again.

  5. Hide / Minimize Dash bar

    Need to minimize or hide the dash bar, while desktop window still is active. It's kind a irritating to see it when you run for example Netflix in fullscreen mode, watching a movie. (Or is it already possible?)

  6. Copy, Paste and Other utilites on Wrist

    Adding copy, paste and custom shortcut on wrist like the wrist watch on oculus home or facebook space would be good on oculus dash, rather than opening keyboard and pressing ctrl V on it, especially on some window that cant be right clicked

    and unique to each hand for more function

  7. Reset Home

    In getting to know the user interface, I ended up messing up the home environment pretty badly. Understandably, I guess, the app remembers all the bonehead things I have done. Can you provide a 'start from scratch' command so we can recover the reasonable environment that you kindly provided when we first installed?

  8. Group/ungroup items for selection and moving

    I want to be able to set up items a group of items.

    So I can link a chair lamp and table in a single group, then move that group.

    In addition to this I would like to be able to lock that group so I can't accidentally grab it when I have it in it's desired location.

  10. Option to require button/trigger press to activate buttons in Dash

    I find myself accidentally pressing buttons on the Dash bar almost immediately after opening the Dash menu sometimes, due to the positioning of my hands when it's opened. Having an option to require some kind of hardware action (either button or trigger) to confirm a selection would be helpful.

  12. Support for gamepad

    I do not have touch and do not plan on using it. I am a bit annoyed at the amount of games and apps which are requiring touch as a minimum, and I don't think the Home app should be one of them.

  13. Paint/Transform tool

    Have a tool, that allow quickly repaint set of objects to a chosen color or new chosen type of object. Like replace all bushes in the garden into pineapple trees. Or all cubes of one kind into another one.

  14. Integration of Twitch Streamer Settings

    Not a lot of options right now in regards to streaming VR setups.. it'd be awesome if Home could have a few settings in regards to streaming & communicating with Twitch & Twitch Chat.

    The chat pullouts right now are fantastic, but this need to be expanded into support for Steam games as well in order to make it fully functional. As of right now it only works with Oculus games (with the game dev updaing their support.) Not all games are on home, and not all home games are on steam either - the best ones will be cross…

  15. Allow horizontal shifting for taskbar and keyboard, expand taskbar horizontally with additional tabs

    Taskbar and keyboard should not be pinned horizontally and should be allowed to be rotated around you as a center axis at the minimum to push it out of the way. Additional icons on taskbar are currently hidden in a non-obvious way; there is plenty of horizontal room for more icons and there's no reason the task bar's length should be fixed.

  16. A police shooter game

    where you can drive police vehicles and make arrests. Would be great if we can have our own teams too. Or just a police shooter game where you have to save hostages and make sound decision just like police academy or something.

  18. Eliminate automatic curved window area in favor of a manual icon.

    The automatic curving is more of a nuisance than a benefit. Also the placing of windows is very difficult with the center point right in front of you. And then that curved thing messes it all up anyway in some cases.

  19. Add more pin/lock options. Pin to HMD, pin to controllers... more?

    Would be really nice to have more pinning options. This way you can f.ex. add a camera feed to your HMD. Maybe you have put a camera on your Rift that can then to be used to orient yourself. Maybe you want to add an FPS counter or a clock to your display as a small Window?

    Gives the users a lot of options since you can just pin any kind of Windows window to it.
