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:
Select See All from the Universal Menu at the bottom of the screen.
Enter your Admin PIN > select Go.
Select the Sharing tab > select Cast.
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.
