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. 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.

  2. Add Remote desktop functionality to Oculus TV

    With all due respect to both the Bigscreen Beta and Virtual Desktop apps which are both fine apps, there's no harm in adding more options. I think it would be a nice, functional addition to be able to access a PC within Oculus TV . Of course, it should have at least the virtual keyboard and use of the Go controller as a mouse.
    Sometimes there may be issues with connectivity and functionality with both B.S. and V.D. that might run smoother within the Oculus TV app, provided it's a more straightforward, solid link between the PC and the Go.…

  3. Fix Gallery photo smearing

    Both Oculus Go and Oculus Quest applies heavy pixel smoothing in Gallery when viewing 180º3D or 360º3D photos for no explicable reason. We put a lot of effort in creating sharp and detailed VR180 photos and videos and keep hearing the feedback "videos look good but why are the photos blurry?" -from friends watching them in these headsets.

  4. Stable record of video inside headset and transfer to PC

    The transfer of recorded video to PC is very unstable. All recordings that doesn´t get a timestamp after recording can not be viewed on a PC after transfer.

  5. Add automatic night mode and general improvements to it

    Basically supporting automatic night mode to avoid excess of blue light but only at night. Also add the option to configure how warm the screen should be.
    The current option is only manual and with a fixed color temperature.

  6. Spreading vr use

    This idea will revolutionize the real world and multi media, just by simply getting any/all your vr devices compatible with camera devices, where professionals do not need to focus their eye vision to the camera scope or led screen of their camera. Imagize just putting on your device and calibrating the camera to the best effect everything would be easier and on a different perspective. Thats all... ey give me some credit if you can make this happen

  7. Update the Oculus App casting function to include AR functionality.

    As much as I like VR, I also realize AR is also something that needs to evolve as well. Given examples like the Hololens and others plus the Oculus company exploring this as well, I was curious about something. Is it possible to achieve some basic AR through the casting function?
    Imagine casting 3d objects through linking of any camera app on smartphones, where you can point the camera in a room, project objects and interact with them with an Oculus controller. Perhaps take the Oculus TV screen only(no background) and project it on a wall. Shoot floating objects from…

  8. PC applicaton

    The Go concept is nice and simple. But the setup is not. The Go can already be plugged in to a PC via USB why not have a PC App available.
    The current setup method is frustrating. Now I have to mess with getting wireless and Bluetooth on phones and PCs.
    Thanks, Dale

  9. Full Gear VR Support/ Emulation/ Store Access for Oculus Go

    After viewing the OC6 keynotes and Mr. Carnack's "eulogy" of Gear VR, I'm sure a lot of Go owners question the future of the Oculus Go. Although I'm all for the future plans of the Quest, I like others still see potential in the Go and don't see it as just a media device only.
    Anyway, one radical idea I think is to create some sort of Gear Vr emulation for the Go can access all the remaining Gear Vr apps that dont work natively on the Go. Sure, most apps work already, but we know not all of them,…

  10. 1 account/ 2 helmets/local network (1 compte/2 casques/réseau local)

    Hi,
    To be able to live the oculus go experience with 2 helmets registered on 1 account (for parental control) in order to benefit from the same applications and to make rooms in the same home, in order to limit fraud, it would be limited only in the local network. Summary 2 headsets/ 1 account/ common family experience locally

    Best regards

  11. 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)

  12. 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.

  13. 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…

  14. Body, hand and finger gestures

    I suggest that you rely primarily on body, hand and finger gestures to control VR environments completely.
    Typing by moving fingers in the air and controlling characters is much better than VR controllers and with better accuracy than mouse and keyboard.
    There are already machine learning models that have good quality at estimating body, hand and finger pose and gestures from normal RGB cameras. You can try to improve it by self-supervised (Monocular or binocular) depth estimation models.
    FaceBook is contributing to AI research with many papers and projects (The famous one is PyTorch), so it won't be hard to…

  15. Make Oculus Go Tutorial Environment Available In The Environments Menu

    My Go’s environment recently turned into the one from the tutorial due to what I believe was a bug, but I’ve found that it’s now my favourite environment. I don’t see it in the environments menu though and worry that this will be patched out eventually. Please add this environment to the environments list, I find that the ones currently available have a bit too much going on for me but this one feels perfect.

  16. 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.

  19. Universal Sharpen filter from home settings

    Some people prefers to have sharpened image. In some films film grain could be ugly, but in vr desktop style apps could improve texts.

  20. Please add microphone input support in UE4 (Blueprints) via Oculus SDK

    Currently there is no way to get audio input from the mic on Oculus Go and Quest when building app using Unreal Engine 4. Please add microphone input support in UE4 (100% usable in Blueprints) via Oculus SDK because Epic isn't going to do that any time soon.
