Add option to remove red dot when casting to phone/other device
One of the main use cases for the casting feature is to have someone unfamiliar with the Quest using it and someone else watching what they are doing and helping them. However, turning on casting currently adds an annoying red dot that detracts from the experience of the person using the headset. Please add an option to remove it.
As always, thanks to everyone who voted for this idea! I’m pleased to announce that a new option to disable the red dot indicator has been added with the v17 Quest software update! Simply head to the Settings > Device menu and look for the “Video Capture Indicator” feature. Toggling this off will make it so the red dot no longer appears within the headset when casting, recording, or livestreaming. For more details on the v17 update, check out our full release notes here: https://support.oculus.com/release-notes/

I can't believe there is no movement on this. How hard can it be to make this optional???
Improvement request date: May 21, 2019
No solutions / comments so far; why?
I would prefer to have it optional but if you NEEED to have it... why dont you put it in the botom left or right corner...????
Remove the Red dot While Casting !!!!!! Oculus team , it's very annoying yeah !!!!!!!!!!

This one is a no-brainer. It's an immersion-breaking annoyance. Make it optional.
Please... the dot is redundant because I’ve already accepted the request.

So basically I bought a chrome cast for no reason. I refuse to play with this annoying red dot. It drives me INSANE
This red dot is ridiculous
Please remove the dot when casting to a phone , it’s really annoying and seems completely pointless... also is it possible to cast the audio as well.
I thought I had a faulty quest and nearly returned it! Whoever thought this was a good idea needs sacking!! It already asks to confirm casting so why the .... do we need to be reminded during what is an amazing experience. It totally detracts from it and ruins it to be honest
This idea is terrible. I returned 2 quests to the store thinking they were faulty! I thought it was a stuck pixie and was really ****** the second time. I felt stupid then realised there is no warning about the red dot anywhere on screen when you cast, on the head set of the device being cast to 🙄 Either give the option to turn it off or move it further out of view. This is game breaking for me as it ruins the experience when casting
Hi Oculus team,
I understand need of red dot while casting BUT put it in an other place of screen !
I have an app that use a blue dot for interaction
So user is disturbed whith red dot and blue dot ....

Yes. Please give the option to remove the red dot during casting. It wrecks the experience....

I'm so sorry but this red dot is the worst idea in the history of bad ideas.
Please remove the red dot ASAP !!!! Or show us how to code the device to remove it ourselves.
Thank you !
its so annoying, when I see it I react like the "angry german kid"

The dot is such a horrible idea for such a well designed product. Come on Oculus. How is the dot still here and you haven’t removed it with an update yet?
