It is also known to be a less expensive alternative to other VR headsets available today.

Not only can you use your VR headset to play games, but you can also cast and stream with Oculus. Oculus Quest 2 VR casting is supported by smart devices such as the Roku TV, Amazon Fire TV, and Apple TV.

But how do you send content from your Oculus Quest 2 VR headset to your Roku TV? This guide will teach you everything you need to know.

 

How to Cast Oculus Quest 2 to your Roku TV

If you want to cast your Oculus Quest 2 VR headset to a Roku TV, you'll need a stable Wi-Fi connection near both devices. Additionally, ensure that your Roku TV is up to date and that the Chromecast app is installed. You can also connect your Chromecast device to the Roku TV via the HDMI port.

Do you lack a Chromecast? No problem - just follow our instructions for casting Oculus Quest 2 to a TV without a Chromecast.

When you have everything ready, the first thing you should do is turn on your Roku TV and Oculus Quest 2, so they can connect to your Wi-Fi. Make sure to download the Oculus app on your smartphone and then proceed as follows:


Important: To ensure that this works smoothly, connect both of your devices to the same wireless network.

1. Open the Oculus app on your phone and tap the Cast icon (headset with Wi-Fi waves) in the top-right corner of the screen.

2. Give the app any permissions it requests.

3. Your VR headset can be found on the Cast From list. It will also list any VR headsets in the vicinity. To connect, select the device name of your VR headset.

4. Switch on your Roku TV and navigate to Cast To on your phone.

5. Select your Roku TV to try to connect both devices. "Connected" should appear below the name of your Oculus VR headset.

6. To accept the in-VR prompt, tap Start at the bottom of the screen and properly wear your headset. After you've been accepted, you can finally start casting.


But what if your Roku TV or other smart TV isn't compatible with Chromecast? You can use your Android smartphone as a source, with the content mirrored to your Roku TV. This is how you do it:

1. Switch on your Oculus Quest 2 VR headset.

2. On your Android phone, open the Oculus app and select Sharing.

3. Select Cast to begin casting on your smartphone.

4. Next, go to Settings > Smart View to begin a screen mirroring connection from your phone to your Roku TV.

5. From the list of nearby devices, select the Roku TV.

6. To confirm the connection, use your Roku remote to select Allow.

You can now cast content from your Android phone to your Oculus VR headset and mirror it to your Roku TV. Although this method is more time-consuming than the other, you can use it if your Roku TV does not support Chromecast or does not work properly with it. You can get TikTok on your Roku using the same method.

It is possible to connect your VR headset to your laptop and then to your Roku TV. In that case, read our guide to changing the input on your Roku TV.
