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. 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.

  3. Cast DIRECTLY to Chrome cast WITHOUT going thru phone

    The Oculus Quest should be able to cast DIRECTLY to a Chrome Cast ultra and not have to cast to a phone first. Right now the quest sendswifi to phone then phone sends wifi to chrome cast then chrome cast sends signal to TV. OF COURSE there is a huge delay. Cut out the phone part. You don’t have to cast directly to a tv but at LEAST cast directly to chrome cast!!!

    Good news! As of the v10 software update which shipped earlier this month, you are now able to initiate a casting session from within the headset directly to a Chromecast device. A phone is not needed for this casting flow. You can find the casting option in VR by navigating to Sharing > Cast on the menu bar. To review this and all changes included in the v10 software update, check out the release notes here: https://support.oculus.com/446100332908646/

  4. Activate chromecast from Quest VR without the app

    Need a way to activate chromecasting without using the mobile app directly from VR environment.

    Currently to activate chromecasting requires to use the mobile app. For example if you are wearing the headset, using phone is pretty difficult. And if the app is on my mobile, then kids playing games can't activate the casting.

    Thanks for voting for this idea! With the latest software update (v10), you can now start a casting session in-VR, as an alternative to using the Oculus Mobile app. To do so, select Sharing > Cast and choose the device you want to cast to. For the full list of changes included in the v10 software update, please check out the release notes: https://support.oculus.com/release-notes/

  5. Ability to Mute Mic

    Please add a way to mute the mic on Oculus Quest I've been searching for the last 30 mins and can't seen to find any way of doing so. I have loud family members in the house and don't feel like bothering others with the sound.

    Hi there – it is possible to mute your mic on Quest. While in VR, if you head to Settings > See All > Device, there is a microphone option. This allows you to toggle the mic on and off. Hope this helps!

  6. Touch Controller Tracking

    Touch Controllers have 2 major issues ATM.
    - Close to head tracking is terrible
    - Looking straight ahead and grabbing something from your belt (magazine lets say)

    Both should be fixed, as these are the 2 main immersion braking / frustrating Bugs

    Good news! As part of the build 7.0 update that began to roll out yesterday, we’ve made performance improvements to better track your Touch controller movements in VR. These updates, which are also applicable for Rift S, include the following:

    - Improved tracking when controllers are close to the headset and at angles turned away from the headset.
    - Improved tracking in difficult poses such as an underhand throwing motion.
    - Reduced re-acquisition time when controller tracking is lost.
    - You can now use both of your Touch controllers at the same time when interacting with different elements such as the keyboard, Oculus Store and Library.

    Full release notes can be found here: https://support.oculus.com/530422364162501/#faq_530422364162501

    We hope you enjoy these improvements!

  7. Please make Oculus Venues available on the Quest

    One of my primary reasons for buying the Quest is to experience live concerts and sporting events. Please make Venues available on the Quest.

  8. Golf Game

    Golf really lends itself to VR, please port a good, current golf game to Quest or, more ambitiously, see if anyone at EA is interested in reviving their Tiger Woods franchise as a new VR title for Quest? C'mon...Tiger's back, baby!!

    Thanks for submitting and voting for this idea. Cloudlands 2 recently launched on Oculus Quest, and it adds the ability to play full sized golf courses. Hopefully this scratches the golf game itch on Quest that you’ve been feeling! If you would like a specific developer to work on a different golf game for Quest, we recommend contacting that developer directly. Marking this idea as complete.

  9. Fix controller tracking when close to headset so games like BoxVR work

    So as you can see by the reviews on BoxVR, everyone is having tracking issues with the game. The BoxVR developers are blaming the Oculus Quest, saying that this is a hardware/oculus software problem, and that the Quest cannot gracefully handle controllers when they're held near the headset. In BoxVR, this results in the gloves getting stuck, or not registering the punches in the correct location. So if this is an Oculus Quest bug, can this please be fixed?

  10. Guardian: allow adjusting only the floor level without redrawing the boundary

    Sometimes the floor level is a few inches off and I want to fix it, but it's a pain to redraw the entire boundary just for that. Would be nice to be able to adjust only the floor level. Rift already has this feature I believe.

  12. Messaging System

    We should have a method of receiving messages into the headset. I think this could be done using the Oculus app itself. Let users send each other messages. I could create an oculus account for my wife, and she could send me an oculus message directly into the headset while I’m immersed in the virtual world...in case i need to help with the real world. And of course i should be able to turn this off if i want.

  13. Charging while shutdown keeps turning on quest

    For people new to the quest, you may or may not have noticed this incredibly annoying issue yet.

    Upon release of the oculus go headset, there was an issue whereby any power received by the headset while it was in a full shutdown state would automatically turn the headset back on again.

    This caused issues where the headset was left on charge then packed away without thought, only to find it was out of battery next time it was used.

    This was later fixed by an update for the oculus go, the same issue is unfortunately present on the quest

    Thanks for sharing and voting for this feedback. We believe that the root cause of this issue was identified and resolved within the v7 software update that rolled out in July. The headset should no longer power on upon being plugged in. As a result, we are marking this idea as complete. If you continue to experience this behavior or run into any other issues, please contact Oculus support. Thank you!

  14. Make all games to be able to stream to TV without the need for the phone.

    Make the Oculus stream directly to the chromecast without the need for a phone.

  15. "Night Mode" option to decrease blue light exposure

    Similar to what applications like "f.lux" have been accomplishing on computers. Most modern computer operating systems (including Windows 10), Android phones, and iPhones now offer this feature natively.

    Link to Apple article on it: https://support.apple.com/en-ca/HT207570

    Excerpt: "Night Shift automatically adjusts the colors of your display to the warmer end of the spectrum—making the display easier on your eyes.

    Night Shift uses the clock and geolocation of your iOS device to determine when it’s sunset in your location. Then it automatically shifts the colors of your display to warmer colors. In the morning, it returns the display to its regular settings."

    Thanks for submitting and voting for this idea! We’ve added an option in the settings panel for Night Display mode as part of the 8.0 software update that began rolling out at the end of last month. This option changes your headset display to warmer colors, which may be easier on your eyes. While in VR, you can access the feature by heading to Settings > See All > Device. Enjoy!

  16. Decrease guardian sensitivity. The system triggers way to easily

    I have the Rift and do not have this issue in the same room. I would like the ability to adjust the sensitivity so that the system only starts to show plus signs when I am about a foot away. I'll sign whatever wavers for risk to safety and hardware damage. This is game breaking.

    Thanks for providing and voting for this submission. As part of the v7.0 update, you now have the ability to adjust your Guardian sensitivity settings. While in VR, head to Settings > See All > Guardian to adjust your Guardian sensitivity. We hope you enjoy these new options!

  17. Allow both pointers at the same time when entering text

    Allow both pointers at the same time when entering text like steam/vive, makes it a lot quicker.

    Thanks for voting for this idea! As part of the July v7.0 Quest software update, we added the ability to type using both controllers at the same time. This actually extends beyond just typing on the keyboard, as you can use both controllers to interact with a variety of elements at the same time, like the store and your library. We hope you like it!

    Thanks for voting for this idea! With the v10 software update that rolled out earlier this month, we added support for all generations of Chromecast as well as some Chromecast built-in devices (NVIDIA SHIELD TV, Google Home Hub, and some smart TVs). If your TV has full chromecast functionality built in, it should work with Quest casting. Please review the v10 release notes for full details: https://support.oculus.com/446100332908646/

  19. Include an IPD size overlay

    When adjusting IPD, please display a size overlay similar to the Rift CV1 when the slider is adjusted.

    Good news! This feature shipped as part of the v12 Oculus Quest software update. You should now see a digital overlay when you move the physical slider on your headset. Thanks to all who voted for this idea!

  20. Compatibility with Oculus Go apps

    It would be great to be able to get back into a few of my Oculus Go apps on the Quest. I personally purchased quite a few games and apps and I would be delighted to keep them all together on the higher quality Quest.

    Good news! This feature is now live as of the v9 software update that has rolled out this week! Check the top left corner of your library for a drop down that will allow you to view your Go / Gear VR apps and games that are compatible with Oculus Quest. Enjoy!
