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. [bug] Mouse pointer can be moved into the virtual monitor and difficult to get back.

    Moving the mouse pointer off the Windows desktop via the bottom-right corner of the screen, causes pointer to be lost. Only way to get it back is to sign-off & back on again. I assume this is related to the virtual monitor.

  2. Find Items/Objects

    Sometimes I can't find certain items, like if I have friends that play around and move stuff. It would be nice to perhaps have a button in inventory to either take the object back to the inventory or find the object/ it starts glowing or beeping.

  3. In game music and desktop audio slider

    While this might be impossible to implement without restructuring integral things on individual apps and games, I would love to have a music slider in dash. Some games have great music, some don't. But sometimes I just want my background music, but I still want the sound effects of the apps..

    Right now, I have to find the menu in the app I am running, find the setup item, go to audio options, and pull the music down to zero and back all the way out again, open dash, get to the desktop to start my music player of choice…

  4. Left click dragging

    Enable users to drag with the left mouse button in Oculus Windows. One way to implement this is by changeing scrolling to dragging when pointing toward a window and holding the "a"-button, or something similar.

  6. software download stuck pending - status is 'queued'.

    The arrow is not clickable so I can't download it.
    tried
    - freeing up dispace
    - toggling 'private test channel'
    - rebooting/restarting software
    - reinstalling and choosing 'repair' option

  7. guardian

    Not sure if this is a new idea, or a bug introduced by Core 2.0 beta.

    When playing games that don't support the Touch controllers, the guardian system is disabled until the game is exited. Once back in Oculus Home/Dash or when loading a Touch enabled game the guardian system works fine again.

    I'm sure that before Oculus Core 2.0 beta, that loading a non-Touch enabled game wouldn't disable the guardian system?

    So I guess this is either a great new idea, so please vote, or it's a bug that needs fixing, so please vote :-)

  8. Do what Microsoft's Windows Mixed Reality does

    You know how the Windows Mixed Reality home has separate rooms, and pinned windows in each room? I would LOVE for that to be on the Oculus Rift.

  9. Save Pinned Browsers

    I like how you can save pinned browsers. As long as you have them all up under a new browser, you can have as many windows as you want, and when you click on it it will return you to the same browser open on your desktop...However, when I close Oculus and return to it, all of my browsers and webpages are gone. I want a feature where it will save each browser address and have it pinned there without going back and opening new browsers, going to the webpages, etc.

    Also, have a spot on the Dash bar to…

  11. "Hulk-Mode" Locomotion

    The game Sports Bar has an ingenious locomotion method called "hulk mode" where you press both "grab" buttons and then grab the environment, allowing you to quickly and intuitively rotate your environment and make small adjustments to your position. This would be amazing in addition to other additional locomotion methods.

  14. Make it possible to look through phone's connected camera from the oculus

    If you could access a connected phone's cam in a small screen in front of the corner of your eye you could " see your room " while you're gaming. So that, while playing, you could keep an eye on your kids or your weird friend that you don't trust completely.

  15. Allows to crop or provide custom desktop window sizes.

    I like to have a lot of apps open but currently every window is displayed as a wide rectangle that I can only change the scale of. It would be great to crop some windows. I'm thinking of a music player where I really don't need to see everything on the page but only the play/pause/rewind/skip buttons. I also know that many apps have a responsive design and it would be great to resize some windows either live or pre-made shapes so some items could display in a mobile format. For one that would be great for web designers who…

  16. Option to dismiss warnings while in virtual desktop in Dash

    The "Unsupported hardware" warning in Dash's virtual desktop is rather big and obscures lower part of the desktop, making it awkward to peek "over" the warning.

    Moreover, there does not seem to be currently a way to dismiss the warning. It would be great if there were, otherwise I need to start going back to hardware description file hacking, because it is very annoying.

  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. Full 5 sensory feedback + better controls

    The ability to taste, touch, hear, smell, and see everything.
    Also more importantly, Superior human interface controls.
    Either better controllers or brainwave based input?

    If you say it can't be done, the moon was not reachable until we proved that notion false... Don't limit your mind with self imposed barriers.

  19. Oculus Dekstop: disable headtracking into games

    I use Oculus Desktop to run app and play games.
    In FPS games like Ghost Recon Wildlands or ARMA 3 I would like to disable the headtracking function if not games are not playable!
    Bigscreen works like a charm but would not launch another app instead the Oculus Desktopone.
    Thank you

  20. Minimal/Developer Mode

    The Home area is pretty cool until you are trying to do some work or frequently exiting a game/app.

    When trying to work with Unreal for testing quick things every time I exit I get the home loading up sounds and animations. This gets real annoying when you are frequently testing and closing the test window.

    Also in games like Assetto Corsa where you have to go back to desktop to select another car loading up home every time is a real pain. Not to mention it probably can use up memory for the track the game is using to…
