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. Add option to remove red dot when casting to phone/other device

    One of the main use cases for the casting feature is to have someone unfamiliar with the Quest using it and someone else watching what they are doing and helping them. However, turning on casting currently adds an annoying red dot that detracts from the experience of the person using the headset. Please add an option to remove it.

    As always, thanks to everyone who voted for this idea! I’m pleased to announce that a new option to disable the red dot indicator has been added with the v17 Quest software update! Simply head to the Settings > Device menu and look for the “Video Capture Indicator” feature. Toggling this off will make it so the red dot no longer appears within the headset when casting, recording, or livestreaming. For more details on the v17 update, check out our full release notes here: https://support.oculus.com/release-notes/

  2. Let us start apps from within the companion app for demoing purposes

    It can be hard for newcomers to demo the Quest when they have no idea what to do or can not find the app.
    People should be able to start an app as long as the Quest is connected to your smartphone remotely.

    Hi everyone! Thanks for voting for this idea. As mentioned in a few comments below, this functionality was added as part of a previous software update. Navigate to your library within the Oculus companion app, select the game or app you want to launch, and hit start. Alternatively, if you are casting your headset’s view to your phone, you can select the library icon in the top right of the casting view and select an app to launch it. We’ll continue to work on new, helpful companion app features, but in the meantime we hope you enjoy this one!

  3. Make VR a more communal experience with a streaming app

    One of the problems with VR is people in the room with me can basically only view what I'm doing on facebook. Thats great but my room mates are not on my facebook and are probably not going to watch my facebook stream. If I could stream it to my TV though they could watch what I'm doing and get involved as I'm playing it. My friends and anyone who happens to walk in and see me playing should have an immediately clear idea of what this amazing experience that I'm having is and how to do it.
