Support for miracast
I would love to stream my experience on a big screen, but don't own any Chromecast. However I do own a lot of devices that support Miracast, and it would be great if the quest could support this too

And let's not forget the biggest compatibility win of all: every Windows 10 PC is technically capable of being a Miracast sink that can display on any connected monitor. That's some overwhelming ubiquity right there. Get it done, Oculus/Facebook!

i am searching everywhere to find a wireless PC to oculus Quest video streaming and Quest to TV Streaming option.
Please suggest if anybody has found a way to do so.

Still no miracast?? Come on oculus !
also if you could allow miracasting to be sent to the hmd would be great, as I could effectively use it as a second monitor for my pc and use steam vr?

My Amazon FireStick supports Miracast but not Chromecast. Please support Miracast from the Oculus Quest to Firestick.
Please support Miracast. I can't believe I have a new LG C9 that natively supports Apple AirPlay and Miracast, and I still need to pay $70 for a Chromecast to stream Quest to it?
Wouldn't Miracast's WiFi Direct mean even lower latency than sending the signal through a WiFi router?

I have a TV with Roku built in which supports Miracast but not Chromecast. Many TVs have Miracast support. It's a common standard. Please support it.

We have five smart TVs in our house (various make and models), all of them support Miracast, but not a single one supports Chromecast. Casting to my phone works, and I can also use Miracast to mirror the screen to a TV, but for some reason it's not possible to do that at once, i.e. I cannot cast from the Quest to the phone and at the same time mirror the phone screen to a TV. Maybe it's a wifi bandwidth limit (even though I do have a fast 5GHz 802.11ac wifi network).
TL;DR ... Please add native Miracast support to the Quest.

I hope this comes soon. I don't like not being able to cast to my lg TV just because I don't want to buy an additional chrome cast device

Is facebook paid from google not to support miracast and only support their chromecast?
Can't you just cast to the phone and then cast the phone screen to the Miracast device?
Greg Smiddy commented
Is there anything that prevents the Quest from having Miracast built in? Supporting a more universal protocol can only be good for adoption, Oculus.
David Neuman commented
I feel like this really hampers the portability of the Quest. The social aspect of sharing the VR experience with friends who are watching is critical, and having to bring a Chromecast around and connect both devices to a (perhaps a poor) wifi network before being able to cast (with huge latency I might add) is a significant barrier. In fact this is currently the only thing holding me back from purchasing a Quest.
Steve Hadley commented
This is absolutely essential for my application.
John Dunning commented
Not requiring an internet connection to stream will make sharing experiences so much easier
Brad Hammond commented
Super keen for this so I can view content in installation settings without needing a router.
James Mullins commented
This is critical to allow users to view content when not connected to the internet (some industries do not allow internet connection of devices).
