How to cast Oculus Quest 2 to TV, PC, or Phone

Everything you need to know for viewing your Quest 2 on another screen

Last Updated on

Many questioned VR’s longevity in both the gaming space and general tech world but instead of slowly succumbing to the depths, it has kicked on, with companies like Oculus pushing the boundaries of what’s possible hardware-wise.

The Oculus Quest 2 is a VR headset that is just that. It removes the tethers that once bound you to your PC, enabling you to have a more immersive experience. One other thing it allows you to do is to cast to various devices around your home, allowing others to see exactly what you can so they can get in on the fun also.

Below, we’re going to be providing you with all the steps you need to follow if you want to cast your Quest 2 on a TV, PC, or phone so you don’t encounter any potential problems along the way.

How to cast Oculus Quest 2 to TV

Oculus Quest 3

If you’re looking for a bit more room to move around in, you might want to head to your front room and enable yourself to fully stretch those arms out for a true VR experience. Additionally, while VR is usually a solo experience, you can cast what you’re seeing onto your larger screen TV and allow others to get involved. What you will need, however, is either a casting-enabled TV or one with a casting device plugged into it. A Google Chromecast is a good option here.

STEP

Turn on devices

Turn on both your Quest 2 headset and the TV you want to cast to and make sure they’re on the same WiFi network.

Last, but no means least in Quest 2 casting, is to your phone. While there are certainly limited use cases for casting your Quest to such a small device, there are times when it could be useful.

STEP

Follow the same steps as casting to TV with some additions

To cast your Quest 2 to your phone, simply follow all of the above instructions for either casting to your TV but instead, hit the Oculus App option.
