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. Better Quality While Casting To A Phone

    Make it less laggy when you cast to a phone or any device. Also bump up the quality of the casting.

  2. A “Car Ride” mode

    Was trying to play in my dad’s truck while going out of town, wasn’t the best experience.

  3. Fix issue with volume buttons not working to confirm power off

    When I attempt to turn off the Quest, it says I can use the volume buttons to "click". However, I have not been able to do this and have to pick up the touch controls to confirm power off.

  4. Guest/demo account

    Have a guest/demo account that doesn't use saved data so you don't have to reset games every time you show someone new.

  5. Option to keep device on and not confirm guardian for Developer Mode

    It's really annoying when you are trying to develop on the Quest to have to confirm the guardian again every time you look through the device.

    It usually goes like

    Pick up device
    Confirm guardian
    Look as result in Oculus Browser
    Put device down
    Save changes
    Pick up device
    CONFIRM GUARDIAN AGAIN
    Refresh Oculus Browser

  6. Option to disable the walls of the guardian, as with Rift

    It would be great to just have the floor outline of my guardian boundary. The walls are an immersion breaking issue.

  8. Disable windows on Passthrough+ when outside Guardian boundaries

    Right now, when you enter Passthrough+, you get an unobstructed view of the outside world. But if you step outside your guardian boundaries, a window pops up for you to reset them.

    The behavior I'd like:


    • No interface should pop up at any time till you double-tap to return.

    • Double-tapping to return inside your guardian brings you back to your game

    • Double-tapping to return outisde your guardian brings up the window to change your playspace

  9. Background music for Oculus Quest

    I got a little idea. Why not add background music directly from Spotify (Or any other music distribution service you can think of) to the Quest headset? That way we can hear our song playlists while we're inside the game. (I would highly recommend turn the game's music down to 0 if you want to hear background music without hearing in-game music)

  10. Ability to organize Apps in library

    Currently there is a lack of options for organizing your apps. Will there be a future update to remedy this? As of now its a complete mess to sort through every time you turn on the quest and go to your library. Is there an option to sideload an app to see your library organized? Perhaps give us an ability to sort via category or folder? or at least let us organize the order ourselves.

  11. 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.

  12. Unity API access: Passthrough camera & tracked points of insight for developer on Quest !

    We are hundred, (thousand ?), of developers on the Quest. And we all hope to play around with the pass through cameras and the Quest Insight tracking system. But surprisingly, there is no API about it !

    Could the Oculus team act about it.

    If it is a close beta functionally, where developers need to apply to have access to it ?

  13. Draw in hanging obstacles to guardian (RIP ceiling lamp).

    Draw in obstacles using guardian in any xyz plane. So i know where my semi flush pendant lamp is at all times.

    Also give option to have drawn in obstaclr always visible and set transparency level from 0 to 100%.

    If I spike the lamp one more time my wife is gonna confiscate my quest.

  14. Facebook Live streaming directly to Facebook Pages

    Currently you can only stream live on Facebook to your personal fb account. I’d like the ability to stream directly to my Gaming Video Creator Facebook Page.

  15. Allow Touch Controllers as gamepad input. (Emulators on Oculus TV)

    Some 2D android apps, like Emulators require the use of a gamepad. Allowing the Oculus TV app to translate Touch input to Gamepad input would solve this issue.

    Perhaps a gaze based toggle button to avoid conflicts of losing pointer / trigger input.

  17. The ability to offset the floor rotation (up to 90 degrees). This would allow handicapped users to lay down and play.

    I have a handicapped friend who would like to be able to play games, however, they spend much of their time on a bed rotated 45 degrees or so, making this difficult. If the world rotation could be offset manually at the core, this would open up many doors for them.

  18. Cast without wifi.

    I don't have wifi and therefore can't cast to my phone. Can we get the ability to cast directly to devices, eliminating the need for wifi?

  19. Make it easier to share videos recorded on the device on FB without having to sideload to your computer.

    Make it possible to share videos recorded on the device on FB/social without having to sideload to your computer. Make these video recordings accessible through the companion app, where you can post them from your phone where ever you like. Maybe even turn on a photo/video selection box when you're using FB or whatever through the browser. I still haven't figured out how to share a screen recording without having a PC.

  20. Fix pairing of arbitrary bluetooth devices.

    Being a developer, I would love to able to pair any bluetooth device to my Quest for fun experiments, but there is currently a bug that you cannot enter a PIN because the keyboard does not appear when you click the text field.
