You should make the secondary account castable to the tv or phone. I would love to see how my wife and kids are doing on their games.

Absolutely!  I’m baffled as to why secondary accounts would be restricted from casting?  Seems simple enough to connect at the device level and view what the current user is doing.

Totally agree! Ofcourse I want to be able to see my kid play and be able to help him.

Please, Meta God allow this before my husband loses his mind trying to make a snake have legs. PLEASE!!  He allowed me to go first and set up our quest 2 and now he complains constantly that he doesn’t have admin rights and can’t cast his games to the TV. This NEEDS to be fixed!!

I need to be able to cast from the secondary account. I bought a second Oculus Quest 2, to play multiplayer games with my family. They do not have the ability to be their own admin accounts because:
-They are below 18
-They have no smart phone
-They have no Facebook/Meta account
-My family often breaks tech (including the BIOS) without being able to explain how they did that.

So I added my family as a second user on my account, and shared apps.
-My family cannot read
-My family cannot describe, accurately, what they see
-I am the admin/troubleshooter/tech for my entire family
-My family typically is less technical
-My family typically need accessibility features.

I regularly need to read the quests to my family in game. I regularly need to troubleshoot for my family.

So, I request that I am able to cast from the secondary account on my Oculus Quest 2.

If I buy a phone, get a new email, new meta/FB account, I will lose my son's characters and in-game progress for Zenith. This game is tied to the Oculus.

This policy prohibits parents, who buy extra headsets for their children, from helping their children navigate the world of VR.

This policy prohibits regular tech users from helping their less-technically-inclined, elder(60's) family members, to navigate the new world of VR.

This policy prohibits the 1:1 assisting of the accessibility crowd. 

This is a barrier to adoption of the metaverse for these categories.

I request that this policy is changed, please.

On headset click the arrow in about the middle of the task bar (sharing icon)

click casting upper left

may take a few seconds but should start casting
