    Works great for me.  Casting to my iPhone 5s.  Nice to be able to show others what I’m seeing while VR.  Also good to monitor newbies using the Go for the first time.  Too bad it currently does not cast audio but still very useful as is imho.  Thanks Oculus!

    Edit; very good idea to read the current Oculus support article on Casting beforehand imho.

    Also have a 64gb Oculus Go which I love for travel and quick VR Fixes.  Looking forward to the Quest!

    I cant seem to get it to start casting.   I reconnected my oculus to the wifi and did the inintial startup pairing again. and it will now push the notification to my phone. but it just opens up the oculus app and does nothing.

    *FIXED*
    I had to go into the app store and update the oculus app.  it now casts correctly.
    using a LG G7 android.

    Would a Bluetooth USB adapter connected to the oculus go headset via an otg adapter connect to a soundbox connected to my TV work for audio when casting?

    I have the option to cast on facebook but not on my phone. If I remove facebook from the associated accounts , I can't start the casting from the go, the go ask me to associate facebook in my phone app.

    I just checked and it's ok on mine.  Maybe Oculus caught you casting something naughty, lol!  Just kidding.  Try a Power Off cycle and see if it comes back ok.

    Tried a restart, also left it turned off for about 20 minutes. No casting on the menu still, seems to have just vanished. Tried to click live instead but that requires FB linking and I don't want to do that, I just want the casting option back =/

    may try a factory reset n see what happens...

    Factory reset was no help

    Is anybody's Casting feature still available on their Oculus Go? Went to take a screenshot to include in an article for our InstaVR Go users... but "Cast" isn't an option in Sharing. :-(

    Hi! I tried the casting feature on my Huawei PC10 lite with Android 8. The cast freezes there after 5 to 6 seconds. On an iphone it works correctly. I already uninstalled and reinstalled the app. Anybody with the same problem?

    What did you mean by that? I thought this thread is for reporting problems?

    Ok, the casting feature just reappeared on my Go and it seems to work fine.  I never see the cast option on my iPhone app but it still works after selecting ok to cast on a pop up menu.

    Whoever thought it was a good idea to have a big red dot (in the middle of the screen mind you), as an indicator of casting being on.... can I have his job?....  This is not so hard people, why not move it to the lower corner and make it smaller so it doesn't get in the way of the experience (from all colors available; it had to be red, Jesus crust!).   Casting is great to navigate first timers, isn't that the goal?...

    This is the first critique I get instantly from people.
    I'm sorry but I can't be nice about this.

    Thank you for the update/features regardless.

    Hi, 
    The casting seems to work well. However i have some questions. Is it possible to set the resolution of the cast? It seems a bit low resolution. Also, is it possible to cast developer apps? When i start my app while casting it tells me it cant cast that app. Is that because only store apps can be cast or am i missing some settings?
    Thanks and keep up the good work!

    I am an early adopter of new features and expect there will be challenges in the early days.  I do however want to report issues as they arise so that they can be addressed.  When I first tried to use Casting , it worked on my Moto Z and Google Pixel 2 phone just fine.   However when I tried casting to a new Samsung Tablet , it only cast for a few seconds and then froze.  The same thing happened when I tried casting to an LG tablet.   For what it's worth I never saw a message on my Android devices to accept casting , I entered the casting mode by clicking on the Oculus notification .    On Apple devices I do see a start casting message box.
    Today I went Apple and set up two Ipad's communicating with two Oculus Go.   It worked perfectly all morning and then it stopped. They both stopped at the same time early this afternoon and I have not been able to get any of my two  Oculus Go's to cast to any device Android or Apple.   I do not have a Facebook account nor do I want one unless it is an absolute requirement to have one.    Sometimes the GoLive and Recording in the Share tab are lit up and sometimes they aren't.  I have not been able to see a pattern as to when they do and when they don't .   Do you have a link to where we can find out if the casting service is available or not.   I understand that you are working on issues, but having a place where we can find out the status would be great.  I spent hours trying to see what I am doing wrong and have pretty much concluded that my experiences are likely the result of system issues beyond my control.   If you need a resource to test releases, I would be pleased to volunteer

    Thank you

    Maybe, but you may get it sooner if you ask Oculus support for some help.  Up to you mate.

    If your phone and router supports 5ghz wifi use that.  Much better than the standard 2.4ghz imho.
