Casting makes it easy to share an immersive SketchUp experience with other stakeholders, teammates, or customers. You can cast from your Quest device to a web browser on a desktop computer, a mobile device with the Quest mobile app, or a smart TV.

  3. From the pop up menu select your preferred casting option (Oculus app, Mobile, or SmartTV).
