Oculus Features


From casting to connecting to your computer, learn how to do more with Oculus for Business.



Connecting to Chromecast



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


To cast from your headset to another screen:

  1. Select See All from the Universal Menu at the bottom of the screen.

  2. Enter your Admin PIN > select Go.

  3. Select the Sharing tab > select Cast.

  4. Find the device you want to cast to from the list of Available Devices > Select Next.

A red dot in the upper right corner of your view in VR will indicate you've started casting.


To stop casting:

  1. Select the Sharing tab > Select Casting

  2. Select Stop Casting.


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 Quest 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 Quest 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.

Managing Guardian



If you're setting up Guardian with your Quest for the first time, follow the instructions that come up in your Oculus Quest headset to get started.

Guardian Sizes

Guardian lets you create boundaries in VR that appear when you get too close to the edge of your play area. When setting up Guardian, your play area will show as one of these sizes:

  • Below Minimum: If your play area is below minimum, it doesn't meet the 3 feet by 3 feet (1 meter by 1 meter) requirement to use Guardian.
  • Minimum: You have enough space for the minimum required play area, but some apps may recommend at least 6.5 by 6.5 ft for the best experience.
  • Recommended: You have the recommended play area for Roomscale experiences. This means that your play area meets or exceeds the 6.5 feet by 6.5 feet (2 meters by 2 meters) space needed to set up the Guardian System.

For additional guidance, check out the video below.

Note: Guardian cannot be deactivated for a specific app. It can be deactivated for individual headsets or grouped headsets if desired. While this option is available, disabling Guardian is not recommended for standing or mobile experiences.
