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. Multiplayer Oculus TV

    Allow Friend invites to Oculus TV room like the Oculus Room! This is basically why I bought a Go, and convinced a couple people to buy one. The Oculus Room is nice, but it’s not enough... too expensive to watch movies, and pretty much just gives us Hulu as an option. If this were an option I know I would be able to convince more friends into getting an Oculus device.

  2. WPA2 enterprise support

    We need to be able to connect the Oculus Go to a WPA2 enterprise WiFi network that has a certificate, username and password to access. Currently it just says "Something went wrong" after clicking on the SSID for the WPA2 enterprise network. The iPhone was connected to the WPA2 enterprise WiFi and was paired to the Oculus Go and worked fine if connecting to a WPA2 PSK WiFi.

  3. 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. Lite version of Whatsapp

    A lite version of Whatsapp on the menu, so we can check messages received and be able to send voice messages using go mic without having to remove the headset to check the mobile. Since this a mobile device, shouldn't be a problem and also it should encourage the social interaction. That supposed to be FB goal anyway.

  5. 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…

  6. Controller backup system if the controller runs out of battery

    I'd like to be able to click on things if my controller runs out of battery like using one of the buttons as when turning off the device or using the head tracking with a cursor. Specially useful to continue watching media.

  7. Change the intro logo

    Please change the intro logo to a 3D tunnel logo, so it will look like the Ready Player One device intro. The logo will still be there shaping the tunnel. It will be really cool to show to new people.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  12. 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…

  13. 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.

  14. 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…

  15. 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

  16. 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…

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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…
