Oculus has added functionality to its Go-vr Headset to cast the view to a smartphone so that bystanders can see what the wearer sees. In the future, support for the Chromecast will follow.
Oculus makes the function available as a beta this week. Users of the Oculus Go mobile can choose ‘Cast’ in the menu, after which a mobile device with the Oculus app receives a notification. If the headset and smartphone or tablet are on the same Wi-Fi network, the image can then be streamed.
The update should ensure that bystanders become more involved with what the wearer sees. With the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Sony PlayStation VR, for example, the display can already be seen on a monitor or TV.
In February of this year, Oculus’s cto, John Carmack, already announced working on the use of the smartphone as the second screen for the Go, but that this would probably not be ready at the release of the headset. In the spring of 2019, Oculus will release the Quest , a pair of free VR glasses, but with support for 6DoF. This will probably immediately receive support for casting, since it runs the same Android-based operating system.
