What You Need to Cast

To cast your Oculus Quest or Oculus Quest 2 experience to a TV, you need the headset and a Chromecast device. Some TVs and smart screens have Chromecast built-in. Otherwise, you can purchase a Chromecast dongle. Both the Oculus headset and the TV must be connected to the same Wi-Fi network as well.
