Using the Oculus Go casting feature, you can stream what you see in VR from your Oculus Go headset to the Oculus mobile app wirelessly. Read the “OculusGo & GearVR wired screencasting” article if you looking for a more robust wired way to do this.
Before casting, make sure your Oculus Go and your phone are connected to the same WiFi network. Some apps for Oculus Go do not allow casting functionality.
