  • I just bought quest 2 and new Chromecast and am having trouble casting. Sometimes it works most of the time we’re having to reset everything just to get it to work and seems to happen daily

Hey there Dad9283, 

 

While the fully immersive aspect of Oculus is what ultimately draws people in to the world of VR, we understand that sometimes you want to be able to show your friends what you are experiencing in real time. 

 

That being said, we have some questions regarding this issue: 

  • Does this happen with other apps? 
    • If so, double check your Wi-Fi connection and placement of the router.
  • Is there any interference between the router and the object you are casting to?
  • What kind of device are you attempting to cast to? 
    • Does it have chrome built in or is it plugged into the device? 

How to cast from the Oculus mobile app to Chromecast:

  1. Open the Oculus app on your phone.
  2. Select  in the top right of your screen.
  3. Under Cast From, select the headset you'd like to cast from.
    • Make sure it says Connected under your listed headset.

  4. Under Cast To, select This Phone or the Chromecast device you want to use.
  5. Tap Start at the bottom of your screen, put your headset on and accept the in-VR prompt to start casting.

Here are the known issues regarding Chromecast:

  • TVs with built-in Chromecast or other smart functionality may be supported, but compatibility cannot be guaranteed with all models.

  • You may experience issues when casting and recording simultaneously.

  • Exiting or minimizing the Oculus app may interrupt casting.

  • Casting may increase battery usage or degrade in-app performance.
