There are two ways you can cast Oculus Quest 2 on a TV. You can cast it by the headset itself and the other way is through the Oculus app. You will need to cast to either a Smart TV or a TV with Chromecast installed. Here is the guide to know more about it.
Steps to Cast Oculus 2 to a TV From the Headset
The first step is to switch on your Quest 2 headset and your Smart TV. Make sure that both are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. Then press the Oculus button on your right-hand controller. You will see the home menu under the app’s window. From the options, click on the ‘sharing’ option to open the window.
When the window opens, you will get three functions to choose from. From those three choose the ‘Cast’ tab. You will have to select your TV device name and then click the ‘next’ button. You will find the notification saying casting has started. There will be a red dot on the right side of your screen indicating a record or stream taking place. You will now be able to see, what you see from the headset, on the TV screen.
Steps to Cast Oculus 2 From the App
The other step to cast Oculus Quest 2 to a TV is from the mobile app Oculus. You will have to sign in to the app from your account. Again you will have to be connected to the same Wi-Fi as your headset. Once you connect it to the same Wi-Fi, follow the steps below:
- Inside the app, tap on the Cast button which will be located in the top right corner. Click on the drop-down arrow just beside ‘This Phone’. You will see your TV name in the options. If you are not able to find your TV name, click on the ‘Other Devices’ option and you will be able to find it there.
- Tap on the ‘Start’ option and your Quest 2 will be cast to your TV.
