Smart TV apps for casting directly to a TV
Currently casting to a TV requires a Chromecast. It would be great if there were Oculus apps for Roku, Amazon Fire Stick, etc to make it easier to cast to a TV

Hey, Casting to your smart tv just seems like a very obvious and social feature that I was surprised didn't already exist.
I bought a Samsung smart TV recently thinking it would be compatible, I know I should have checked online first but it seemed so obvious that it should work.
Please keep doing your best to bring this feature to us all!
Thank you from all the Oculus lovers out there
Yes, please allow more casting options to various TV's. Would love to cast to my large Roku TV.

Add another vote for casting to Samsung smart TVs.
Would like to be able to cast to Roku devices and TVs so others can see what is being seen on the headset.
Add another vote for casting to more devices. Roku, Apple TV (generic Airplay?)... ANY improvements would be very welcome.

Casting Directly to my Amazon Fire Stick would be nice! I get A LOT of lag streaming to the phone and then to the TV.

I'd love to be able to stream to my Windows 10 PC.
Also my Huawei P20 Pro only streams for a few seconds then freezes.

I have a new LG SmartTV and would love to see casting for it.

This would also allow for setup using a streaming stick instead of a phone.
I, as I am sure many more other people, have Amazon Fire TV stick and I'd love for Quest to cast directly to it.

Create a solution for casting to Roku devices including boxes and Roku TVs. If necessary, have an Oculus App on the Roku platform to make this easier.
Just Air Play 2 could make sense, but in general Google Cast is enough, just buy a 30$ chromecast
I have a new Android TV and it's also not showing up as a device to cast to. Would be great to see this working soon as well.
Apple TV is awesome so I would love to be able to cast directly to an Apple TV. Maybe have an Apple TV Oculus app to make it easier.

I'm afraid this is currently a limitation of the recurving devices, since e.g. older Chromecast aren't supported.
I do hope a workaround will be available in the future though, possibly something like mirroring phone to TV while the quest is casting to the phone.

Given the popularity of Samsung Smart TVs, it would be great if we could cast directly to them.
