Oculus Go

Welcome to the Oculus Go feedback forum! This is the location to provide all your feature requests and ideas for the Oculus Go platform. We're looking forward to hearing from you on the following areas of the product:

  • 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.
Please do your best to ensure all ideas are original and have not been previously submitted. Thanks for helping us improve Oculus Go!
  1. PLEASE bring back the “NEVER” option in the Auto-Sleep settings.

    One of my most common uses of the Go is as a video streamer. Apps like Netflix, Hulu and YouTube all feature content that run well past the 15 minute mark. Most of the time I watch these type streams, I’m reclined and typically still. It is EXTREMELY annoying when the auto-sleep feature kicks in and powers down the device. The NEVER option worked beautifully in preventing this issue but, for some unknown reason it has been rolled back. Please re-enable this feature...it was super useful!

  2. Hide the new floating menu bar under full screen videos

    A recent update to the Oculus browser added a floating menu bar under fullscreen videos (Youtube, etc) which won't go away no matter what you do (Oculus tech support confirms this). It's wildly distracting from the video/movie. Give us a way to turn it off, or at least have it fade out when the controller isn't pointed at the screen.

  4. Sad to see Oculus Rooms and Monopoly go

    I just heard that you were deleting Oculus rooms as of Oct 25. This saddens me. I will miss my room and my solitude in my room and I will also miss playing Monopoly deal. Hopefully the new horizons product will support rooms that you can be by yourself in, and let me play Monopoly deal again. I am sad, but I understand why you’re doing it.

  5. Play external media natively via USB OTG flash storage.

    It’s absurd that this feature hasn’t already come to the platform. The Xiaomi version already supports it natively, but on the GO, it can only be done through a bunch of work arounds. I’m sure no one bought their GO, hoping to “make” it work. More likely than not, they expect (like me) that the products they buy will work the way they’ve been told.

  6. We need a system wide Travel Mode / Orientation option

    The same way Netflix will auto adjust orientation in a moving car, we need a system wide Travel Mode. I frequently use my Go on the plane and only the Netflix app lets me comfortably watch media the entire flight.

    It is also frustrating that almost every app has its own button mapping for reorientation. (Hulu ignores the Oculus Button 'long hold' that would allow you to reorient the content vertically, instead requiring a clumsy trigger pull gesture)

  8. More selectable environments in Oculus Tv

    Why is there only one environment in the Oculus TV section? In the home and navigation screens, there are a few environment choices, although there should be more. But you only have the one scene in a cutout platform surrounded by trees and mountains. I would like to see more options for that. Why not a TV room or movie theater or some other optional living room setups?

  9. Backup/Restore System for Apps and Settings

    After receiving a forced update my OGO was rendered useless, requiring a full system restore. Once restored, I was forced to reinstall all of my apps and all of my progress, files, etc. was gone. There is no backup/restore system in place for OGO and it's beyond absurd. Let's get this going ASAP.

  10. Occulus Rooms Update

    Oculus Rooms Update

    Part of the whole VR experience for me has been the social aspect. I have a close friend in another state who I purchased an Oculus GO just so we can hang out in VR and play movies and games. She loves it, but the Oculus Rooms app, our favorite place to meet up and talk, seems just a tad bit underdone. We absolutely love it as our meeting place, but playing your own videos is not possible. Only Videos saved from the Facebook app. Even then, sometimes not. You cannot play music and show pictures at…

  11. Get rid of the need for gacebook

    I know your owned by facebook but I think it's unfair to make users get a facebook account in order to fully use the device.
    I am currently debating sending it back for a full refund as it's not what I purchased and there is no information on the box saying it needs facebook.
    It wasnt necessary when I first purchased it.
    I think it's wrong to mislead customers then try to force them to get a social media account they dont want.

  12. New oculus Go update made home screen smaller and too close to the eyes which really hurts

    Recently, my oculus go got updated to latest version and the home screen got smaller and moved too close to the eyes which really hurts when using. Please fix this issue or let the user choose the screen distance of the home menu. Please and thanks.

  13. Option to disable the red dot while casting

    When the Casting feature is used the user sees a red dot in the top right corner, it would be great if that could be turned off (great for new users to stop them from casting unknowingly but annoying/distracting if you just want to show the device off to family

  14. Higher resolution video playback via rendering technology

    There is currently existing enterprise software (visbit) that allows for much higher resolution -8K or even 10K- VR video playback on the Go by using a dynamic rendering technology. Something like that could (should?) be integrated into the core software of the mobile headsets, so that they could play VR videos with resolutions well beyond their hardware graphics limits.

  16. Remove authorization in helmet for sending files from PC to helmet internal storage

    Everything is in the title. This is really boring to be forced to put the helmet on to authorize file transfer from PC to helmet internal storage.
    The authorization should have a checkbox saying "Don't ask me that in the future".

  17. We need tabs/folders to organize our library.

    I want to be able to separate my games from my other apps and media players.

    Also a way to hide uninstalled apps.

    Also a file explorer that I can use without hooking up my headset to a PC. I can download stuff using the vr web browser but there is no way for me to move the downloaded file to other folders.

  18. 돋보기 기능 혹은 당겨서 볼 수있는 화면 확대 기능을 추가해줬으면 합니다.

    안녕하세요.
    저는 원인불명 선천적 시각장애를 갖고 있습니다.
    초고도근시를 가지고 있어서 사물, 인물, 글자 등을 거리가 좀 되는 곳은 잘 보이지가 않으며 시력 교정 등의 도수 장비도 수술도 안되서 고치질 못합니다.
    물론, 약간은 보이기에 이렇게 글 올립니다.

    SKT VR팩 부가서비스를 가입하게 되어 오큘러스Go를 받았습니다.
    착용해보니 다소 거리가 있어서 글자가 거의 보이질 않네요.
    돋보기 기능 혹은 화면 확대 기능이라도 있으면 글자 정도는 좀 볼 수 있을거 같은데..
    부탁드립니다. 기능 추가 좀 해주세요.
    별도로 판매하는 도수렌즈용 도구가 안팔리면
    소프트웨어 유료로 만들어 주세요. 구매하겠습니다.

    모든 전자기기는 잘 보이고 잘 들을 수 있는 사람들만 자유롭게 사용할 수 있다는 점으로 맞춰져있다보니 이럴때마다 정말 억울하다 생각이 드네요. …

  19. REVIVE ROOMS!

    i got go for Christmas and was exited to see rooms after hearing of it but all that happened was basically a neon flashing sign saying "hey you didn't get this experience but hey, buy another headset twice as expensive and get a future release that's probabally worse!

  20. Please put an Update firmware button.

    It's kind of crazy that update happens by chance, and that Oculus support says I must leave my Go for 2 o 4 hours to see if it upgrades by chance. Otherwise I have to Factory Restore it for an upgrade.
    All of this can be solved with a button of are there any updates? and if so, the chance to manually push it at that certain moment.
