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. 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.

  2. 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!

  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. 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.

  17. User profiles and Manual updates

    I'd like to see an option to create user profiles so that each person who uses the headset can have their own customized experience.

    I'd also like to see an option to manually update the system software instead of having to wait for the system to do it on its own.

  18. Overhaul positional systems for comfort whilst watching media laying on my back

    I watch a lot of media whilst lying in bed on my back, facing the ceiling. When I exit some of these apps (such as YouTube VR), despite having centred the Go to face the ceiling, the menu bar/option to 'quit' or 'resume' the app is out of view down at my feet, causing me to need to sit up and bend in a painful way.

    I'd like the Go to remember that when I centre my view on a point on the ceiling, everything else should appear around that point. It would also be nice, similarly, to be able…

  19. floating horizon

    Due to a car wreck, my neck was broken in 3 places, I now have a chunk of steel that causes me problems. I use my Go most every night when I go to bed, and laying back (even propped up by pillows) I have to constantly sit up to sign in, change apps, everything, All THE TIME, . YouTube will let me drag it up AFTER it's opened and a few apps, like NetFlix and AmazonVR will let me move them AFTER a video is starting. The majority of apps, the horizon CAN NOT be changed at all. I…

  20. Phone Mirroring/Notifications

    I enjoy having my Oculus go loud so I can't always hear my phone. It would be nice if I was able to check notifications in the headset so I don't have to keep taking it on and off.
