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. 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!

  2. Fix the 'Crash to Home' bug- Any app (all app) screen turn black, Guardian wall appear and app crash to home. Fix?

  3. 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!

  4. 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!

  5. 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!

    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/

  7. 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?

    Thanks for submitting this idea! 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, including improved tracking when controllers are close to the headset and at angles turned away from the headset!

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

    We hope you enjoy these improvements!

  8. 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/

  9. 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.
