Oculus Go

Thanks for helping us improve Oculus Go! We're now taking all suggestions on our Oculus Community Forums. All suggestions, votes, and comments from here have been migrated, along with matching accounts. We appreciate you taking the time to share, and are looking forward to seeing you on our broader community.

As a reminder, topics are labeled in the following areas:
  • 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.

  1. 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.

  2. Improved control: second Go controller with a thumbstick

    From my point of view the main limitation of the Go for games isn't 3 DoF or the limited hardware, but the controller. With only a trigger, a (clickable) touchpad and a back button, games often struggle to offer a good method of control.

    Even just adding a shoulder bumper or the like might help in some cases (for example in Pinball FX2), but a second Go controller with a thumb stick should do the trick in adding the right amount of interactivity, achieving most of what a game controller can do and some things it can't (such as separate…

  3. Separate the App Purchased from the Free

    I would like the menu of the oculus go in the app section, you can see separately the App purchased from the Free. Since it is annoying to have to look for the app purchased in the middle of so many free.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  7. OcuClass

    Sent this to support and they told me to post on here so her goes....

    I had an idea for these strange times and figured you have the resources to pull this off:

    OcuClass:
    Develop Bare Bones VR set for education just enough power to run a classroom setting
    Software for Class room that has place for a Digital Chalk board
    Provide VR sets an minimal costs
    Provide Servers to be installed at Schools all high password security protection
    Schools would have to purchase and place

  9. To support more gamepads! I have Xone v1 & 2 and PS4 v2 and 2 iPega and i still cant't play Oculus Arcade

    Herebound and others are waste of money for me.

    I used a few tutorials but nothing, the mobile app does not detect my gamepads.

    I'd like to play with PS4 v2...

  12. 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.

  13. 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…

  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. 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.

  16. Offer a repair service

    Offer a repair service for your products. I bought a second hand oculus go as my family are on low budget, we had the device for 2 weeks and the battery fried, I wanted to send it back and pay for the service getting a new battery fitted but the company does not offer this. Considering there will be many families in my situation the company should offer some sort of repair services for families that are less fortunate to buy the products brand new. I am so upset about it as it was bought for my sons 7th birthday…

  17. PLEASE REMOVE THE FACEBOOK REQUIREMENT

    A lot of peoples reviews are about this and I don't blame them! I really want to purchase the Oculus Quest 2 but now that I know you HAVE to have a facebook doesn't really make sense. I'm so glad I haven't purchased it yet and I actually took time to look at these reviews. Not everybody wants a facebook account, and also people have been complaining about how facebook asks for too much of your information and leaks your data, most definitely not, even if it's not true I would hate to risk it. Anyways thank you!

  18. 3D camera

    You know what I would like? A simple 3D camera that can share pictues so they can be viewed from the Oculus Go or Quest. You have a great platform that is affordable for viewing 3D pictures, but nothing to generate them. There are a few high-end cameras, but they are for professionals, there needs to be something that takes simple stereoscopic side-by-side pictures that is comparable with modern digital cameras. It's a market that is basically empty and begging to be filled. I'm currently trying to make my own with a Raspberry Pi, but I would gladly ditch it…

  19. Why isn't the home interface controllable with a bluetooth gamepad?!?

    When connecting a Bluetooth controller you still need to keep the oculus pointer at hand reach to navigate menus, reset the position and more!! It breaks the immersion and is just uncomfortable!! Please fix it

  20. Language filter for matchmaking and social apps

    I don't use Venues because the content is in english and people speaks english.

    In Big screen, Alt spaces... All is in english

    We should have a filter for search our native language speakers
