Unable to cast using chromecast 3

So I bought a chromecast 3 today but nothing I do will allow me to cast to it. It's all on the same ipv4 network, I've reinstalled the app and factory reset my quest. The chromecast works from other apps on my phone such as youtube but in the oculus app it doesn't even show up. What gives? What else can I try?

    Me too... Chromecast (v3) is not visible in my Oculus app on S9+

    I´m having the same problem, with the same product. It only lasts like 5 seconds, than the connection interrupts and finishes. However I am able to establish it, to cast for few seconds. I don´t understand why it doesn´t work. At this point I think Chromecast should sort out something about their support to certain devices. Also, it could be the wifi connection, which would work better on 5G for these purposes.

    Same here. Impossible to cast since the last update. I get a black screen on my TV, and a few seconds later it disconnects.

    Bought the Oculus Quest and Chromecast Ultra. Oculus app doesn’t find the Chromecast, only my phone. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app... didn’t make a difference 😠😠😠

    you can try using the cast inside the tv. while my phone needed to be in the same room as the chromecast (i have a chromecast built into my Vizio tv) the headset could detect it halfway across my house with tons of walls and doors.

    Was the same for me when I purchased my Chromecast 4K. It would not appear in the list of devices to cast to on either the Oculus App on my phone or in the headset. Then a day later it appeared and worked for about a week, even when moved to a different location on a different network. However, now I’ve brought it back home and it’s the same problem. I can cast to my phone but not to the Chromecast since it doesn’t show up as a device to cast to. I’ve sent in a ticket for troubleshooting and will continue to research hear. Obviously this is frustrating as I’d like for others to watch what is displayed in the headset.

    Probably is a silly question but have you all downloaded the Google Home app from the play store and set up.
