How to Connect Your Oculus Quest 2 to Your TV. VR is actually quite solitary given the fact that the screens are only visible to whoever is wearing the headset. So, unless you happen to be an expert at interpreting a user’s flailing arms you can choose to connect and watch the headset on an external screen like a TV so that you can see what is taking place in the virtual world.
- TV with an HDMI port
- Chromecast (If your TV does not come with one built-in)
- Smartphone with the Oculus Smartphone App
- An Oculus Quest 2 VR headset
At the moment we are here with a step-by-step guide so that you can quickly hook your oculus quest 2 (Now Meta Quest 2) to a TV and get back to playing VR games. The best part is that you would not need to worry about annoying wires, all you need is a Google Chromecast and a Smartphone.
How to Connect Your Oculus Quest 2 to Your TV
Get a Google Chromecast
If you happen to own one that is great, or else you would have to get a Chromecast 3rd Generation or Chromecast with Google TV.
Unfortunately, an Amazon Fire TV stick or another alternative streaming stick would not cut out the mustard, it has to be one of Google’s own rights now.
Download the Oculus Mobile App on your Smartphone
In other to do this, the android phone you are required to be using must be Android 5.0 or later, an iPhone that is running on iOS 12.4 or later, or an iPad that is running on iPadOS 12.4 or later.
When you originally set up your Quest 2 headset, you were probably prompted also to set up the app as a part of the process, which means that you might have downloaded it. If you have since deleted it, then you just have to re-download the app and sign in and you should be able to reconnect to your VR headset via Bluetooth without going through much fuss.
If you are yet to make use of the app at all, that really does not matter as it is just as simple for you. Download the Oculus app straight from Google Play or the App Store and then sign in via Facebook or Oculus account that’s linked to your quest 2.
Your account should already be connected to your account, but if it is yet to be connected head to Menu > Devices > + > quest 2 and follow the onscreen directions.
Turn on the Quest 2 Headset and cast it via the Oculus App
This step is the last you would be required to take, this step involves a little more involved than the last few, so here is what to do.
Launch the app and search for the symbol that looks more like a headset with a signal coming out of it right at the top. Right after pressing it, you should be able to see your connected headset; you would be required to tap on the little down arrow right next to it.
