A user of a virtual reality (VR) application uses a head-mounted display (HMD) to view VR content, such as graphics rendered by the VR application in the HMD. While the VR user is viewing the VR content, the VR user can cast the viewed VR content to friends or contacts enabling them to view the same VR content. The sharing is over a network and works regardless of the locations, devices, or types of networks being used. Audio from the VR user and/or from the VR application is also sent to the other users, e.g., via voice over internet protocol (VoIP). Further, audio from the other users can be sent (also via VoIP) to the VR user and other users, thereby providing multi-way communication.
