Mirroring your phone on VIVE Flow
You can mirror what's on the phone screen inside VIVE Flow. Enjoy apps and watch your favorite shows on a personal large screen in VR.
- Your phone needs to support Miracast in order to mirror your phone screen on VIVE Flow.
- Make sure your phone is unlocked and the screen is on.
From Home, select
Phone > Let's go.
Your phone screen will then appear in VR.Note: If you're using the VR controller and you haven't paired VIVE Flow with your phone before, you'll see Pair phone instead of Let's go. Select Pair phone, and then follow the steps in Setting up VIVE Flow using the VIVE app. When you get to the step where you need to enter the pairing code, enter the pairing code you see on VIVE Flow.
- Aim the beam on the phone screen to interact with your phone such as selecting an app to open it.
- Play back videos and watch them on your own personal large screen in VR.
- Use the toolbar to manage the phone mirroring experience.
Go back to the previous screen. Reposition the phone screen in VR. Move the screen to its new position first before selecting Done. If you're lying down on your side, turn on Sync with headset rotation first before moving the screen. Reset phone screen position and zoom level back to default settings. Zoom in on the phone screen. Zoom out of the phone screen. Open your phone's voice assistant (for example, Google Assistant). Switch the phone screen orientation to portrait or landscape. Make the background lighter or darker. While watching videos in full screen, switch between a flat or curved screen. Exit phone mirroring.
- If you don't see the toolbar, tap your phone screen or move your phone from side to side. If you're using a VR controller, move the controller from side to side.
- Aim the beam at a button on the toolbar to see what it does.
- When you're using an app in full screen and in landscape orientation, select on the toolbar to exit full screen mode.
- Make sure the volume of your phone is not muted.
