    Same here with a Google Pixel 3XL. It start just fine, and after a couple of seconds, there is just a message on the phone that the connection was disconnected.

    Could it be the old issue.... your router is using the same SSID for both 2.4 & 5ghz bands?

    I have Samsung S9+ - I can cast from Quest to phone without problem but I also have a Chromecast (3rd gen) dongle connected to TV, but that is not visible in the Oculus app when I want to select where I want to cast to. :( What can I do??? :( please help.

    Huawei users, 

    Make sure you go to battery settings, then app launch, search for Oculus app, and turn off manage automatically, Huawei kills alot of app activity in the background due to power consumption.

    Unfortunately the hint with the app launch wasn't successful for me on my Huawei Mate 20 Pro

    I found the solution to be to start casting from my phone, then start casting again from the headset, then confirm the casting on the phone again. It's worked for me flawlessly ever since. I am using a 5ghz wifi connection so idk if that impacts it.
    I'm not sure if anyone said it here already, or if it was on another forum, but I saw somewhere someone mentioned disabling mobile data. That worked for me.

    Initially, I wasn't able to cast from my Quest to my OnePlus 7Pro or my girlfriend's S10 but it worked fine once mobile data was disabled.  B)
