When you cast, you can stream what you see in VR from your Oculus for Business headset to another screen or device. Before casting, make sure your Oculus for Business headset and the device you wish to cast to are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. Keep in mind that some apps for Oculus for Business do not allow casting functionality.

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

  • Your network should allow P2P connections.

  • Currently, the only devices supported for casting with Oculus for Business headsets are:

    • All generations of Google Chromecast

    • Google Home Hub

    • Nvidia Shield and Nvidia Shield TV

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

  • Your Oculus for Business headset and your Chromecast device all need to be on the same Wi-Fi network.

  • If you'd like to control what you see on your Chromecast device, you'll want to have Google Home installed on a mobile device and connected to the same Wi-Fi.
