Oculus 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. Allow for Manual Firmware Updates

    It's frustrating trying to guess when the next update will be available on my device, and the "Check for Updates" button hasn't helped in the slightest. It would be great if we had the option to update to the latest firmware instantly during any point in the roll-out.

  2. Huawei phones support - currently not existing!

    According to Oculus support, Huawei phones are not supported. There is a vast Huawei user base out there that was not told about the missing support for Huawei. Can you fix it? Fast? And let people know that you currently do not support Huawei?

  3. Have Night Mode switch automatically based on time schedule set by the user or sunrise/sunset

    Basically the title, it's kinda annoying to set it/turn it off every time you enter the headset. I don't think an additional option of time schedule would hurt anyone, rather just bring more customisation.

  4. Please add a similar "half pass through" and pass through modes like the "greel lines" mode of the Vive Cosmos

    I'm currently crosstesting a Vive Cosmos.

    There are 2 things about their pass through on demand that are very useful and which I would like to see in the Quest too in some ways.

    1.) Half Pass through: The virtual view gets faded out a bit and the pass though image gets added to it.

    2.) Other pass through modes: Beside the camera view the Cosmos offers a "green lines" mode. In this mode you don't see the camera image, but the borders of your RL environment.

    I absolutely love this combination to sort myself in my room while playing…

  5. Update the Casting "red dot"

    When you cast or record a red dot is displayed in the top right corner.

    The first time this happened I freaked out, thought I had burned the display by accident. It would be better if the red dot would blink, or it would say CASTING or REC for a few seconds beside the dot.

  6. Height adjustment for people with disabilities

    Please allow height to be adjusted from the guardian setup for people to enjoy games and experiences with normal height. Many games do not adjust for sitting players and makes game interactions or functions either awkward or impossible (e.g. normal walking speed in Pavlov - game assumes you are crouched).

  8. Make recording and uploading easier and streaming easier

    Make it so we can record and upload straight to YouTube from the oculus quest it would make it so much easier for people like me who are just starting to do YouTube and who don't have a lot of money and also be able to stream straight to YouTube or Twitch

  9. Make the touch controller batteries able to be wirelessly charged on a stand so the batteries don't have to be replaced so frequently.

    It would be a lot less expensive and easy for everyone if the batteries for the Quest were rechargeable through wireless charging and/or a USB cable on a stand for overall a better look for one and for two a so much easier experience with the controllers that would benefit everyone.

  10. 2 levels of Guardian; hand and feet

    A lot of my obstacles are low in height so I can swing arms freely above them.

    I would love to be able to set 2 Guardians, one for when my feet are about to hit, another for hands. So at wall the full grid comes on, but over my sofa it only comes on for the lower half.

  11. Non-personal account for schools and public demos

    Some kind of non-personal account for multiple headsets so we can set up demos without using personal accounts.

    Since a Facebook account is needed it's not possible to have non-personal headsets with purchased content on in a public environment such as a school, library or for a public demo case.

    The usecase is that we can't have one single person responsible for all our Oculus Quests.

  12. Improved Controller Tracking in Bright Environments

    Though the headset itself is capable of positional tracking in fairly bright environments (e.g. next to a large bright window, outdoors in shaded areas etc.) when the environment is bright enough, it loses tracking of the controllers. This seems to be due to the exposure of the cameras being adjusted to a point where the IR dots on the controllers are too dim to be picked up, though maybe this is not the case.

    It would be great if there was a way to boost the controller brightness or otherwise improve tracking of controllers in bright environments.

  13. Microphone during casting

    Recently my wife just purchased "Ghost Giant", we enabled casting to our TV so that all of the family could enjoy the experience. We then discovered, that the microphone does not work during casting, this causes a breaking bug in the game as this requires a microphone to progress.

    Check out the breaking bug below, a social media influencer noticed it first

    https://www.reddit.com/r/OculusQuest/comments/f60km7/ghostgiantoculusquestlivestream_gameplay/

    I hope that Oculus intend to address this sooner rather than later.

  16. Ability to play stored music on the Quest in the background

    Please add a feature to play music files stored on the Quest in the background. Would be a great thing maybe while browsing the web or in your store, or just while chatting with a friend.

  17. Don't exclude people with extremes in IPD ranges, such as my 71.5.

    When making a product with the spirit of "get it into everyone's house", it doesn't make sense to add high amounts of discomfort for users. The Quest 2 having only 3 hard set ranges might be good for some, but is bad for users like myself. I don't want to get sick or be hurt as a result of using a device with bad IPD adjustment options. Maybe have both physical and software? Maybe we get to pick between the two or just offer the ranges?

    I was an Oculus fan, now I'm watching the market for someone to make…

  20. Option to switch what lense you are recording or casting from

    When you are recording or casting it records what is being viewed from the left lense despite most people having their right eye as their dominant eye, add an option to switch what lense you record or cast from
