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. Remove prompt in headset for casting

    Most of the times when I want to cast from my Quest to my phone, it is to supervise the VR experience of someone with little VR experience.

    Having the prompt inside the VR headset to accept the casting becomes tricky with inexperienced users, who usually don't understand how to navigate the UI or aren't fully spatially aware -- so while they're struggling, I can't see what they see.

    The phone I'm casting to is already logged into my account, why is this permission step needed? Or possibly have a setting to disable or always accept the casting via a…

    Hey everyone! As noted by a few comments below, this option was added as part of a previous software update. When you initiate casting, you will receive a pop up confirmation in VR. However, there is a option within this pop up that allows you to opt out of this notification in the future. Simply tick that box and accept the casting request. If you do this, you should not receive this confirmation dialog in future casting sessions.

    Additionally, as part of the most recent v10 software update, you can now initiate casting from within VR rather than starting the casting session from your phone. While in VR, head to Sharing > Cast on the universal menu bar and select your desired device form the list. We hope this makes the casting experience easier for everyone!

  2. Ability to remove titles from library

    I’ve somehow ended up with both the Beat Saber demo and full version. I’d quite like to remove the demo from my library, but I can’t!

    As noted below, if you hover over an app’s tile in your library and click the three dots in the bottom right corner, you can select uninstall. This will move the item from the Apps section of your library to the Not Installed section. The Not Installed area hosts all the apps that you have purchased or downloaded previously, but are no longer downloaded and installed on your device. Utilizing this uninstall feature should allow you to remove the Beat Saber demo from the Apps section and only have the full version of Beat Saber listed there. Hope this helps!

  3. Allow us to use the high bandwidtch USB C connection to use the quest as a PC VR headset.

    Thanks again for voting for this idea! We have added the ability to play Rift content on Quest with Oculus Link, available now in Beta! Check out the blog post for more details: https://www.oculus.com/blog/play-rift-content-on-quest-with-oculus-link-available-now-in-beta/

    Please note that it may take up to 24 hours for the feature to appear within your headset. If you still do not see the feature after that time, please reboot your Quest headset and log out and back into your account on the Oculus PC software.

  4. 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!

  5. 3DOF mode for using the Quest in the dark

    Currently you can't use Quest in the dark at all. Technically 3DOF tracking should work (just like the Go), so people can watch videos even in a dark environment.
    Just add a notification like "Tracking error. Would you like to use Quest in 3DOF mode?"

    Thanks for voting for this idea! This feature has been added as part of the v9 software update that began rolling out earlier this week. You can find this option as a toggle called “Tracking” under the Settings > Device menu. It will also be offered as an option when the headset detects that your headset is in a playspace without sufficient light for tracking. See you in VR!

  6. Allow Casting of Games Like Beat Saber

    Let us cast games like beat saber. Party mode is pointless casting a blank screen. I can understand restricting livestreams, but local casting?

    Thanks for supporting this idea! I’ve confirmed with the team that casting functionality has been enabled for Beat Saber on Oculus Quest and can be used to show off your best rhythm slashing skills! To learn more about casting on Quest, please check out the following support article: https://support.oculus.com/1053142614872870/. See you in VR!

  7. 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/

  8. On Demand Passthrough button like Rift S

    It would be nice to be able to toggle Passthrough on-demand like you can with the Rift S to be able to quickly see the world around you without having to pull the headset off of your face.

    Good news! As part of the most recent Quest software update (version 15), we shipped Passthrough Shortcut as an experimental feature. To turn it on, navigate to Settings > Experimental. Once on, you can trigger the Passthrough camera view at any time by simply double-tapping on the side of the headset (no button pressing required!). Thanks again to everyone who voted for this idea!

    Hey everyone – I’ve noticed that some of you are submitting ideas as comments under this idea. All new ideas should be submitted as their own top level idea as that will allow other users to vote on them. I’m going to close out this idea to hopefully prevent any further ideas being submitted as comments here.
