  • You can cast Oculus Quest to your TV if it has a built-in casting ability or you can attach a Chromecast device to share your view in VR.
  • You can enable casting from the Oculus app on your phone or from the headset.
  • Here's how to enable casting from your Quest to a TV in both ways.

Virtual reality can sometimes feel like a solitary experience, self-contained within a headset. But your Oculus Quest (and Quest 2) lets you cast what you see to a television, where anyone else can see what you are seeing. Casting is straightforward, and you can use any TV with a built-in Chromecast app or a Chromecast device that's plugged into the TV.

How to cast Oculus Quest to a TV using your phone

1. Make sure that your phone is on the same Wi-Fi network as your Oculus Quest headset.

7. In the "Cast To" section, tap your TV or Chromecast device. If it doesn't appear, make sure your TV is on, the Chromecast is enabled, and then tap "Tap to search for other devices."
