Adventure through VR with Daydream is a blast. From games that have you trying to solve puzzles to exciting videos that can take you to exciting new places. Trying to get your friends to try out VR can be frustrating, and if you have multiple friends, you might be tempted to share what you see on a big screen that everyone can enjoy. Luckily, this is completely doable and we have the details for you here.
What do you want to do
When you share your VR adventures, you have many options. From saving videos and then sharing them to simply linking friends to the headset one by one. Sometimes none of these options really work, though. If so, then you need to mirror your phone’s screen on another device. You will need either a Chromecast connected to your TV or an Android TV with Google Cast support.
Basically, what you want to do is stream from your Daydream-enabled phone to your TV. This will allow anyone in the room to see what you see on your headset.
The easiest way to share your screen is with Google Cast. For this method, you’ll need either a Chromecast or an Android TV because your phone needs to talk to them in order to share your screen. In addition, you need to make sure that your phone and the device you are streaming to are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. From there, all you have to do is start streaming from your phone to your TV and then put on your Daydream headset.
How to use Google Cast to share your screen.
- Open the app Google Home .
- Click overflow icon in the upper left corner of the screen.
- Click Cast screen / audio and connect to the device you want to share your screen with.
- Put on your headset and share your VR adventure with the room!
