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. Update to Go networking

    Users whom are on specialty networks are unable to use the Oculus Go on their networks due to the following:


    • MAC address filtering - Currently there isn't a way to pull either the MAC address or even the assigned IP address directly from the headset or the companion app. We have to tell customers to go to a network admin, which sometimes is not possible for corporate environments with hundreds, if not thousands, of connected devices

    • Certificates - There is absolutely no way to use a custom trusted certificate on a Go.

    • Captive portals - Customers on the go hit…

  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. dried uncomfortable eye balls

    When i use the OG for long periods watching media,i find my eyes become very dry .In these moments i need the ability to ajust the distance and size of the screen.I can watch for endless hours using the rift by controlling size and distance. These option are already possible with 3rd party apps like big screen beta ,vr web browser and vr desktop. Unfortunately they do not have the
    ability to play media files. The main reason for using the go is media consumption. thank you

  5. Easier sideloading process for everyone!

    Sideloading currently is a complicated process to go through with more steps involved than it feels necessary to really have, especially if you're not actually a developer. If it could be more like a simple switch like it is on Android, and if we could just transfer over an APK and install it in one click, that would be fantastic. It would be great if we had such a simple process for Quest, too!

    If it isn't so easy to make it such a simple process, even then, it would still be greatly appreciated if the process could be made…

  6. Release Notes

    Post release with the latest oculus updates. Along with the listing the version being installed a nice brief list of updates/fixes would be nice instead of guessing what's new.

  7. Bluetooth Headphone Supppot

    Would be great to be able to use bluetooth headphones with the Oculus Go, seems weird that in 2019 there is a device with audio that does not support bluetooth connectivity.

  8. 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.

  9. Sharing app

    If i make a 3D model and make an Go compatible apk.-file from UNITY, I can sideload the app using USB cable connected to my PC, but if I want a friend to be able to view the model in his Go headset I have to plug his headset into my PC ( and make the same 30 sek. transfer)
    Thats a little tricky because he lives 2 hours driving avay. Would it be possible to build an app where you can transfer the apk file by web to a headset?
    I know it should be possible to upload the…

  10. 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.

  11. Chromecast Support

    The Oculus Go operating system claims that you’re able to connect to chromecast via your mobile phone, but this isn’t possible. iOS support for Airplay and Chromecast would be great.

  12. Gift apps/games to other users

    The ability to gift games and apps to other users would be welcome as I often find myself wanting to do so when I come across something I think they'd enjoy.

  13. Correct translation

    I am using the Finnish version of UI and noticed a funny translation for the word "casting". That is translated as "Näyttelijät", which means "actors". There's no really a good translation for the word in Finnish, but the closest one could be something like "Peilaus", which means "Mirroring". Or "Lähetys", which translates to "broadcasting". As of now, the translation just makes no sense at all. And after you click the button, it still has further instructions in English.

  14. Allow audio output to both the headphone jack and built in speakers simultaneously.

    I'd like a configurable option to allow audio output to both the headphone jack and the Go's built in speakers simultaneously.

    The use case for this is probably small but I'd like to be able to use the headphone jack for a tactile transducer (Subpac) in conjunction with normal audio from the Go's built in audio (prefer not to use headphones / more comfortable / fewer cables).

    For me this would be ideal for a game like Thumper or watching movies in any of the Go's media players.

  16. Sync Events to a iCal/Google Calendar feed

    I would love to have an autogenerated iCal/Google Calendar feed created with all events I mark Interested in that I can import to my Google Calendar or other calendar app.

    For example many services let you create a universal iCal calendar feed URL that can be imported into gCal, iCal, Outlook, etc.

    https://calendar.google.com/calendar/ical/72bj8rtor1lfioi0%40group.calendar.google.com/public/basic.ics

    This would be great for increasing user participation because I think a lot of people simply forget when the events are and the notification system is a bit weak. A calendar feed would help people to actually plan to be around for the event. More participation would…

  18. Include downloaded content in storage manager app size values

    Storage manager only shows the app size, it doesn't include downloaded content. Cirque Du Soleil shows up as ~50mb even though I've downloaded over 5GB of content. This makes it annoying to find what is using up your storage when it's full. I have to manually hunt through every app to find downloaded content to clear out.

  19. Night mode

    An option to turn the screen brightness and reduce the blues/color temperature at night. This feature has become ubiquitous on phones, tablets, and computers now. Lots of people use the GO at night and this would be useful for preventing sleep disruption.

  20. Game lobby to find multiplayer players

    It would be cool to have some kind of official game lobby in the app menu bar to corral other players for multiplayer games. You could post what games you're interested and get a notification when other players also want to play. That way you can go watch movies or play other single player games until there is someone ready to play.

    Right now the problem is people open one game, wait a few seconds, then leave. The chances of coming across another person is small. Having a central hub with notifications would greatly increase the chances of crossing paths…
