Separate app and chat volume control
We should be able to control app volume and chat volume separately.

This frustrates my friends and I so much every session since we have to all reduce the volume settings in every new game we play so that we can have a chance of hearing eachother in the party chat.
This issue was reported 3 years ago and it's such a basic and core function for a platform focussed on social interaction. Coming from steam which has had this basic functionality for as long as I can remember along with per-member volume controls, it's so jarring trying to do any sort of party-related stuff on the quest platform (e.g. joining games together via the party), it's just so poorly executed. I expected much much better from such a highly resourced company who's core business is social platforms. Very dissapointing.
Also I can't click the vote button on this issue or successfully click a "How important is this to you" button without it erroring? Great job, no wonder core issues are being neglected here.

Zac Hales commented
Yes! This needs to be added, it would make the whole experience better, maybe v36?

I completely agree with this. It's unbelievable this still hasn't been addressed
I would also like to see this the game I was playing was too loud most the time to hear the other players. Please separate volume channels.
+1 need this feature. honestly surprised this is even an issue.

How in the world ist this not already fixed? Crossplay is Impossible atm.
PLEASE ADD THIS. WTF WHY NO VOLUME CONTROLS!
INDIVIDUAL PLAYER CHAT VOLUME.
OR JUST FIX THE F*CKEN LINK SO INGAME CHAT WORKS THROUGH STEAM VR SO I WOULDN'T HAVE TO ADJUST THE VOLUME IN THE FIRST F*CKEN PLACE!

Just got the quest 2 and this is still an issue. I’m really surprised this topic doesn’t have more votes.
If Facebook what to make this a great social experience surely we should be able to hear our friends over game volume, instead of them being drowned out all the time?
It should be a setting native to the oculus headsets themselves not up to each developer IMO.
Hope this is something resolved soon as it will improve the user experience significantly.
Just got the oculus quest, having independent volume control for the game and chat with friends is huge. I started tinkering in multi game with my buddy late at night, this feature would be helpful. instead of leaving it to the dev of each individual app, this should be a master setting on the platform itself. Eleven Tennis allows some control. but not all apps do.
please fix this problem.
We really need it
