My household has multiple Quest 2 devices. We use casting to Chromecast devices all the time. I personally use it to stream my Quest gameplay on Twitch and Facebook Live and have evangelized at least ten headset sales this way. My kids also use it to show off VR when their friends come over.

Your alternative solutions of casting to a mobile device or browser aren't good enough. This change has severely impacted our user experiences in a very negative way. We will not spend another dime on your platform or recommend your products unless this feature comes back.

Why was it necessary to remove such feature? I don't see any benefit in this.

I don't understand this decision. This will not benefit anyone. This is just stupid.

Bring back direct casting!

That's very annoying. 😞

I've used both a Nvidia Shield and chromecasts as targets for casting VR games at student exhibitions (the students made the games) and it worked well for that. All of the headsets were paired with a single college phone, having to cast to the phone then to a chromecast would block multiple headsets from casting at once.

We want Chromecast and / or Airplay. Webcasting is super buggy. Oculus app on mac m1 also buggy and not able to cast.

I agree.  I'm not spending money on another game until we can cast again.

I 100% agree . The removal of support for Chromecast is absolutely incomprehensible from the customer's point of view. It makes the use of my Quest headsets and my way of using the headsets together with others much less attractive for me.

Casting to the meta app is garbage, and trying to relay that to a TV is even worse.  This absolutely ruined my family's ability to enjoy VR as a group, and our ability to troubleshoot things for our kids in VR is now exponentially more frustrating.  We bought a chromecast exclusively for this ability, which is now a paperweight, and we don't have any way to make this better (short of putting a PC and mouse/keyboard in the living room, as the casting-to-phone-to-TV has absolutely terrible quality/latency, even on a WiFi 6 network).
