Oculus Quest 2 and Quest

Welcome to the Oculus Quest feedback forum! This is the location to provide all your feature requests and ideas for the Oculus Quest 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 Quest platform.
  • Core Software / Guardian: All Oculus Quest main menu, navigation, Guardian, and settings feedback should be left under this category.
  • First Party Apps: This category is for in-VR apps created by Oculus, like Oculus TV.
  • 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 Quest!    
  1. Passthrough Mode with Guardian Turned Off

    Like many developers, using the guardian can be cumbersome when switching between my desk and headset, so i utilize the option that lets you turn the guardian off. However, that seems to disable the passthrough mode, either double tap or the passthrough environment. Passthrough should be able to be turned on with the guardian turned off, because then instead of being totally blind, theres almost a middle-ground.

  2. Do NOT require a Facebook account!

    Have made several attempts to create an account for my son who is f age according to the community standards using fresh emails and phone number. They get blocked, appealed, then irrevocably, permanently disabled before the account can ever be logged into or used. This has made the Oculus a $300 brick and the box hasn't even been opened (still sealed in plastic).

  3. Add 2-person CAST mode where the HUD controls only appear on the CAST screen and are stationary

    I often need to operate the controllers while my 93 yr old mother just "enjoys the show" - for example when watching 3D videos.
    The problem is that its almost impossible to operate the HUD controls because the headset wearer is constantly looking around and thus the HUD moves accordingly. The special CAST mode I propose has all the oculus HUD ( and APP HUD ) controls appear ONLY on the CAST screen ( until cast is turned off ) and has all the HUD buttons etc appear fixed in place so that one can operate the buttons easily.
    So…

  4. Perminently delete games from Library

    There’s a plethora of reasons to implement this feature but personally I find that having games that I’m never going to play or get the achievements for annoying. It prevents my library from feeling clean and is irritating to see games I’m not going to play with a 0% on the achievements board.

  5. Transform the Video/ Photo Capturing Features Please.

    -Ability to quickly access the video/picture capturing feature without disrupting gameplay. This will help capture specific moments rapidly.

    -Allow option to record your own voice while video recording.

    -PLEASE FIX: bug / error related to audio not being synced with video capturing. This happens often when you are navigating through menus/ loading screens. If you go through a loading screen, then the audio will be out of sync with the video recording.

    -Option to have a feature that will record the last 15s, 30s, 1min, 3min, 5min, 10min, 15min of gameplay.

    -In addition, it would be nice have the option…

  6. Make communication more accessible for the sign community. Use hand/finger tracking when holding controllers.

    Add the ability to use hand/finger tracking when holding controllers natively or when using Link cable.

    Sign language with friends would become a lot easier if this was added. Currently, making hand signs like holding three fingers up or slightly curving your fingers is impossible when using apps such as VRChat. If this was added to Quest 2 and Quest, this could them be added by applications and would make it a lot easier for the sign community to converse in Virtual Reality.

  7. More guardian settings

    I wish we had more guardian options, e.g. opacity level, only the line/border on the floor (without the surrounding grid), distance threshold/tolerance settings for grid/border activation and a radius setting for the stationary circle (its a little bit too narrow by default).

    My play space is big enough to move a few steps in every direction, but when swinging in beat saber or point my arms forward in space pirate Trainer the guardian comes up to eagerly.

    Thanks for consideration!

    You guys rock btw :)

    Hi all! Thanks for submitting and voting for this idea.

    As part of the build 7.0 update that is rolling out this week, we’ve improved the overall performance of Guardian and added the following new features:

    - If your Guardian boundaries are too sensitive, you can adjust them from the Guardian settings page.
    - If you need to adjust your floor height, you no longer have to reset your Guardian. Instead, you can make adjustments right from your Guardian settings page.
    - You can now set multiple Guardians in the same room and switch between them.

    Since this idea is a bit more expansive in terms of what is being asked for, we’re going to leave this open for voting for now. We hope you enjoy the new Guardian settings that have been added in the meantime!

  8. Customizable home space

    I'd like the ability to customize the home environment in Quest, personalizing it to my tastes.

    Best case scenario, I'd like to see the same home functionality seen on Rift, possibly with cross compatibility.

    If that's not technically possible though, then perhaps a less complex environment, or perhaps predefined 'skins' developed by the UX team.

    Thanks to everyone who has voted for this idea! As part of a previous software update, we added the Environments setting to give you more control over your Home space. You can view and change your environment from your Settings panel. To do this point at your bottom toolbar and select Settings > See all > Virtual Environments. Then point and choose the environment that you want to apply. This feature is now available to all users.

    As both the initial idea and the comments speak to a functionality request that goes beyond this addition (things like decorating your space with objects, being able to move around the space, etc.), we are marking this idea as started to leave it open for voting rather than closing it as complete. We hope you are enjoying the new environment options we have added!

  9. Make the sit down guardian system adjustable in size

    It would be nice if I could make the guardian barrier bigger while playing seated games. If I’m sitting in the middle of a room in a rotating chair I’m capable of fully extending my arms without hitting anything, but the guardian system is often activated. If I set the guardian to roomscale, then sitting doesn’t work well for some games as they now require me to stand and move around more.

  10. Option to choose online status

    Please please please add the option to change your online status on the quest, so you can be on your quest but choose to appear offline. Every other gaming system has this option. I believe it is available on the pc companion app but not on the actual quest or mobile app. I do not have a pc. This is basic privacy.

  11. Allow users to move around the home environment

    The default home environments are beautiful, but feel so limited as we are unable to use our controllers to sit or stand wherever we please. Please take inspiration from Alcove's incredible customizable apartment and allow us to move around the home environment!

  13. Make Disable Guardian Work Again!

    Software Update v34 introduced a lot of really great features for people who are unable to play in VR in a distraction-free environment but it also overrode the use for the Disable Guardian option in Developer Mode to work while operating the Quest 2 device under normal conditions, now it "may only be used for content development purposes".

    I have an anti-fatigue mat I use for added comfort and I never need to step outside of the mat for any purposes while playing, all of these extra features are just making it hard for me to enjoy VR.

  15. Provide public test channel release notes

    Please provide us with a change log / release note to the current public test channel releases of the Oculus Software. Just a short list of Bugfixes and featuers. This can help the advanced user to decide when to upgrade and will give us the possibility to provide better feedback.

  16. Allow system components to be redownloaded to avoid factory resets after firmware updates

    I noticed that on both the Q1 and Q2 Oculus TV kept crashing after firmware updates. I deleted it and redownloaded it and it's now fine. On my Q1 the guardian app is crashing since V30 and even after installing V31 it keeps crashing. The corrupt TV app persisted through firmware updates too.

    Currently I have the guardian disabled which is far from ideal and not something you can do without developer mode.
    I suspect the same fix would work for the guardian allowing me to avoid a factory reset which would be a huge pain given that a few…

  17. Separate vibration force setting for controllers

    Сhange vibration settings to be able to set vibration strength for each controller separately.
    That will compensate problems, where one of controllers begins to vibrate weaker than the other.

  18. Update button

    Having to click on all the apps that need updates is annoying and having a update all function would be pretty useful especially since apps like browser and tv aren't in updates area and you have to update them separately

  19. Fix upscaling algorithm on Quest 2. Set a better standard for approving games on the store. Inform customers about games render resolution.

    On Quest 2 upscaling algorithm looks very bad, for example games rendered at 1440 pixels looks very muddy and cause eye straining.
    If this is not possible please ask developers to publish games at higher resolution, and inform the customer at the Quest 2 store games pages at which render resolution the game will be played.
