Chromecast Issue

Hello All, just bought a Quest and a Chromecast. The issue I am having is the chromecast doesnt show up in the app, just 'phone'. I can cast if I use a third party app and cast my screen phone but the quality is bad. I have ensured I am on the 5G network with all 3 devices, the name of the Wifi Broadcast is different than the 2G network. I have rebooted several times, ensured I can cast a laptop to the chromecast. I am using an Iphone xs max, but I did try it on an android phone as well as a samsung tablet. I get the same results. Am I missing something or do I need an update that isnt available to me?

    Same with me on Samsung S9+. In Oculus app (v. 36.0.0.5.242) the Chromecast (3rd gen) is not showing up on the Cast to list just the phone. :(

    Having the same issue...was going to show it off for thanksgiving and can't get chromecast to work.  All on same 5G network, latest versions of software, etc.  Can chromecast from other devices fine to the Google Chromecast Gen3 but it won't show in Oculus Quest headset or in the iPhone app.

    I don't think this information is correct!  Plus I emailed support and they said no such thing.  Their support article mentions the following:

    There are a few things to keep in mind when casting to a Chromecast device:

    • This feature is still in beta.
    • Currently, the only devices supported for casting with Quest are:
      • All generations of Google Chromecast
      • Google Home Hub
      • Nvidia Shield and Nvidia Shield TV
    I wasn't aware it was still in beta, which is probably the issue and some how got broke in version 11 of the Oculus Quest software.  I seen a few posts saying that after version 11 it stopped.

    Plus before the 4k version came out and others were having trouble before with older chromecasts, they were saying you need a 3rd gen.  They should all work as they all use the same technology and I don't see why they wouldn't be supported.  Plus the 3rd gen just came out in around October 2018.

    May be linked to IPv6 on your router.  If you have the option to disable it, try that and let us know.  I'll have to wait on a patch from Oculus as I am unable to disable IPv6 on my router.
