How to connect your Oculus Quest 2 to a TV

VR is usually pretty solitary given that the screens are only visible to whoever is wearing the headset. So, unless you’re an expert at interpreting a user’s flailing arms, you’ll want to connect the headset to an external screen like a TV so that you can watch what’s happening in the virtual world.

Tools and Requirements

  • A TV with an HDMI port
  • A Chromecast (if your TV doesn’t have one built-in)
  • A smartphone with the Oculus smartphone app
  • An Oculus Quest 2 VR headset

We’re 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. Best of all you won’t need to worry about any annoying wires, you just need a Google Chromecast and a smartphone.

Steps

Unfortunately, an Amazon Fire TV stick or another alternative streaming stick won’t cut the mustard – it has to be one of Google’s own right now.

  • Download the Oculus Mobile app on your smartphone, to do this you’ll need an Android smartphone running on Android 5.0 or later, an iPhone running on iOS 12.4 or later, or an iPad running on iPadOS 12.4 or later.

When you originally set up your Quest 2 headset, you were probably prompted to also set up the app as part of the process, which means you may already have it downloaded. If you’ve since deleted it, then just re-download the app and sign in and you should be able to reconnect to your VR headset over Bluetooth without any trouble.

If you haven’t used the app before at all, that doesn’t matter as it’s just as simple for you. Download the Oculus app from Google Play (opens in new tab) or the App Store (opens in new tab) and then sign -in using the Facebook or Oculus account that’s linked to your Quest 2.
