  2. restricited access for student/school use

    I'm excited to use VR as a teaching tool in our school, however I'm concerned students will be surfing and selecting items that are not educational. Is there a way to restrict access to horror, violent, mature, and gaming related options? If not, I fear we may not be able to use it.

  3. View 3D models

    Oculus app to import and view/walk-through 3D models (obj, skp, day, etc) as we can for 360 degree photos. Existing apps are very expensive since they are business oriented and have many more features than needed by the average hobbyist. Perhaps Oculus could partner with a company like SentioVR to bring this time of functionality to regular users.

  4. Fix the controller

    The up on the touchpad doesn't always work making games that require using up on the touch pad unplayable. It may work a bit then stop. Games like Dreadhalls suffer the most since up is required to walk.

    I've seen this complaint on multible reviews for multiple games. Dragon front also uses the up to examine cards but a lot of the time it just don't work. Seen other reviews on that game that also have this problem.

    I don't know if this is a software issue or a mass defect in build of the controllers but it is ruining…

  5. To hide timewarp glitch overflowing fov with upscaling

    If fov is 90° upscale image to 100 or 110 when timewarp activates for put glitch outside the fov

    I mean the black border of the fov when you are moving the head fast

    Is it possible to upscale to 2x as fake downsampling for help with the problem of the distortion for the lens? I mean, about 1.8x does not give improvements to increase even more the SSAA, but is important for to read text clearly

  6. enable GPS functionality

    The Oculus Go Snapdragon chip has GPS functionality, it would be great to be able to selectively turn it on. The reason is to be able to track VR headsets that I propose leasing out.

  7. Awarding points or hearts for using the device

    I would be great if you improve the oculus environment as in some 3D chats like There ( there.com) by awarding points or hearts to players and then using the points to give free stuff. That would also helps to buy games. A system like this:

    1. Points / hearts for time using the device.
    2. Points / hearts for number of apps downloaded.
    3. Points / hearts for using specific apps like Oculus rooms, etc
    4. Points / hearts for buying games over $5.99, etc.

    Free stuff to redeem points:

    1. Customizations for the avatars.
    2. Customizations for the oculus rooms.
    3. Games (Totally free or…

  8. Find a way to delete a handset no longer in use

    There's currently no way to remove a handset you're not using from your account.

  9. Allow reviewing a game I refunded

    I bought Along Together but asked for a refund because I felt uncomfortable with the movement method. I wanted to post a review along the lines of 'good looking game but camera movement bothered me; would be nice if the devs added another movement method; EQQO was good in this regard.' I feel that this would have been helpful for other players wanted to buy the game and would provide feedback to the developer.

    Unfortunately, once I asked for a refund I became unable to review the game. I think it would be a good idea to allow reviews for…

  11. Add front facing camera with sensors

Sensors added for people to be able to wave / press hand in front of to pause video or activate camera with Picture in picture view of outside so people such as flight attendants or general public can ask you something etc

  13. Many Thanks

    I would like to tell you about my use of my GO. I had a stroke a few months ago and hadn't used my GO since, until about 4 weeks ago, when I was helped getting it on my head. and within minutes I found I had better movement in my arms and my wife said my face looked happy. it was almost like id never had the stroke. until I stopped using it. There is hope I will recover fully. . So I would like to thank you guys, and I look forward to the Quest .

    Regards
    Danny

  14. Better tablet app support

    The Oculus mobile app is not optimized for tablet sized screens like many apps are. When in the app you will see black bars around the interface and the app does not allow landscape mode.

    I personally would like to see this fixed given that some users prefer tablets over phones when it comes to browsing the store or setting up a device.

    Thank you.

  15. Support HBO or at least the Hulu HBO Add-in

    I would love to see an HBO Go app or even if you could support the Hulu HBO Add-In so I could watch Game of Thrones on the Oculus Go. Currently I have a Hulu subscription with the HBO Add-in but the Oculus does not support or allow me to watch/stream any of the HBO content.

  16. Being able to remove previous headsets from account without factory reset.

    I had a defective Oculus Go that I got set up but couldn't remove/factory reset from my account. Now it's always there and it forces me to choose my new headset from a list everytime I need to do anything. There needs to be a secondary option to remove a headset for any reason. There is literally no reason why this doesn't exist.

  19. Wireless keyboard

    Oculus needs a wireless keyboard for typing. Typing usernames, chatting in games, etc.

    One option would be a direct bluetooth keyboard connection.

    A second one would be an app that can use your computer keyboard as an Oculus keyboard via wifi, like a virtual desktop type thing. This would be very convenient as you wouldn't need a separate keyboard.

  20. A file explorer with password on folder, and ability to hide folders.

    A file explorer with password on folder, and ability to hide folders.

    There is nowhere to see the status on the update of the headset. Make it possible.

    I want to record video inside the headset including audio.

    Add the possibility of wireless transfer of files from headset to PC, and vice versa?

    MAke it possible to trade in the Oculus Go , in exchange for an Oculus Quest for a lower price.
