Oculus Go "casting this content cannot be viewed outside your headset"

Any Idea why I get this message any time I try to launch any oculus go app. Like whats the point in casting if you can only cast your home and it cuts you off when you try and launch something.

    Some apps can be casted and some cannot. It will depend on the game.

    How is this determined. Does the developer have to build in support for thier app? And if so how do they go about doing that?

    Up. We're developping an oculus go app (using Unity), and we're getting this message when trying to use screen mirroring. What shall we do to allow it ? Some permissions to add to the AndroidManifest or something?

    This would be SUCH a great feature if only we knew how to use it as developers

    Is there any news on that ?
    I'm developing apps for the Quest and the customers wants a live streaming on phone, but apparently it can't be done using Unity build, and there's no way to upload a Quest app on the Oculus Developer website without sending a document explaining what exactly is doing your app ( : wtf Oculus ?

    Thanks for your amazing support, as if we didn't know that already. The question is : Why ? If I want to make an app for my customers only, how am I going to explain the features and interactions if they can't even see what I'm doing ? That's just non sense.

    Anyway, I hope you guys gonna fix that

    I was a oculus fan from the first houre on.
    Loved developing for the dk1, dk2, cv1. But what you're doing with the platform is scaring me away.
    For me it is very important to be able to present active prototypes to the customers without putting them into the HMD.
    Your foreclosure will do VR anything but good.
    Please have a heart. Open up the platform. Give developer more control. With such actions as you are currently developing, you are anything but attractive for my team.
